Help me pick out a monitor?

Ok here is what I need:

MUST have's
- Purchased at Staples, Circuit City, or Best Buy (so I can easily return it should a problem arise i.e. dead pixels)

- LCD 19" +

- DVI and Analog connectors that are selectable using a button (None of that Samsung 193P crap)

Things that would be good
- Height/Pivot functions

I guess that is really it. I am having one heck of time trying to find one though. The Dell 2001FP would be great if I could pick up locally at a store or something.

Check out some reviews online

Check out some reviews on line. Check the stores you mentioned online. And most of all enjoy your 19" monitor. NEC makes a good one. and yes dell's are good too. I had a 21" sony triatron once. now.... see for yourself below..

peace.. :-)
