Sony G420 or Philips 109P?
Im getting a new monitor on saturday, and i've narrowed my choices down to these two. Both seem pretty even in terms of specs. Theyre both apperture grill tubes, both do 1600x1200@85, the sony can do 1920x1440@72hz, the philips can go up to 2048x1536@60. The philips has a shorter picture tube, which would be handy as my desk isnt as deep as i'd like it to be, the sony offers features like a pair of tinny built in speakers and a usb hub, but its quite a bit bulkier.
Price wise theyre fairly similar, the philips is $729, the sony $835.
Does anyone own either of these and can give a reccomendation? Im just wondering if its worth paying $100 extra for a pair of speakers i wouldnt use, a usb hub that i probably would use, a bit more bulk and a sony badge?
The only other consideration was perhaps getting a 17" lcd, but i dont think i could put up with the slow pixel response time, plus 1280x1024 doesnt offer any more desktop space than my current monitor (the reason i want a new one).
