TFT monitors

LCD MonitorsIts always important to have a decent workspace for your PC screen. Since you are going to be using several applications to make music it's good to have a 19" + monitor to be able to view everything running in parallel. This will improve the workflow and speed up the process of transferring files, editing while playing and checking mixer levels. There are many good monitors in the market but make sure to read the reviews before you buy.

Samsung SyncMaster 226BW 22" LCD TFT

Samsung has demonstrated great ability in manufacturing low cost but high performance flat panel displays in a highly competitive market. The SyncMaster 226BW active TFT matrix rarely ships with dead pixels and the quality leaves a lot to be desired by other brands.

The only serious shortfall for any buyer would be the 2ms response time. Most new 22" monitors sport 4-5ms response time.
