I am upgrading my antique 19 inch CRT (it's massive). I am lucky enough to use a Formac Raven 19inch Dual screen set up at work - so my home life just doesn't even compare :( I am moving house this month so I am looking for a decent wide-screen monitor (not enough room or good enough graphic card for dual set up)
Anyone have any good recommendations within a maximum budget of £500?

I have an Insignia 20 inch LCD monitor, TV, DVD player thingy in my office. It allows me to use a PC at a reasonable resolution, watch TV, play XBox, TIVO, or DVD all with a press of a button on the remote.
It isn't my choice when I need hi-res PC, but is my choice for most other things......like posting here.....I'm using this monitor/TV/DVD contraption right now!
Price.....$400 in Circuit City or BestBuy. Cheap and effective for most of my needs........when I need hi-res then you have to switch out to a much more expensive system that isn't so practical as a stand-alone solution :(
Wait a year or 2 and I'm sure we will see the same technology available in much larger screens......my Panasonic 42" HDTV is not far off right now....it just isn't user friendly yet!
