I'm not a fan of Viewsonic - had 2 at work that stopped working after 8 or 9 months. But I've had my Dell 30" LCD for quite a while and love it (cost nearly half what the Apple 30" cost at the time). The Dell ULTRASHARP models are quite good. Samsung makes decent ones as well.

Hooked up a buddy over the Summer with a Hannspree 22" (21.5" actual) monitor. US$139 + sales tax at Staples. I saw in the Sunday paper that somebody has them now for the same price.
Wonder if that's the same as Hanns-G. I bought a couple of 19" over 3 years ago for around $130. They are not the quality of a Dell or Apple but I don't do graphics. At the time they compared to monitors around $250-300. Both are still going strong, but on one, the one used the most, I did have to replace the caps on the fluorescent power supply/starter board. About $1 in cost. It was an obvious fix, most of them were swollen.
That is usually the problem with an LCD that goes out/won't start, the caps go bad is all.
