I love that the Best of the Best, was moved to the website. A place where it can stay more up to date, and also get more attention.

Just a thought, but I would like to see a The Best Non 30-Inch Monitor! category on on that list. As of right now there's:
  • Budget monitor (22-Inch).
  • High-End Monitor (30-Inch).


I think having the The Best Non 30-Inch Monitor! category would be a good balance. Especially for those folks who don't want a 30-Inch Monitor, or a budget monitor.

What do you guys think?

I agree. Need a best 24" monitor as well since video card requirements can be very different between those resolutions.

Good point about the different resolutions.

Personally, I would go 20 or 22, 24 and then 30 inches. The varying needs for video cards for good performance based on those resolutions really make a lot of folks on a very tight budget re-think their intended purchase. A good card, like a 9600GT, for a 20" monitor sporting a res of 1600x1200 or 1680x1050 will also push a 1680x1050 22". But it will struggle with a 24"1920x1200 24" if you have any kind of eye candy turned on. If you have a 30" panel, you'll HAVE to run dual GPU on a single PCB or SLI/Crossfire to get decent gaming performance with eye candy.

We'll add a 24-inch panel. I think the reason we don't have one on there right now is that we haven't reviewed any we liked enough to recommend lately.
