    Following on from my first build thread ( http://forums.bit-tech.net/showthread.php?t=208870 ) I was wondering if anyone knew of any decent white monitors around? To summarize, I am building a PC especially for my trading activities. So its pretty much just going to have charts on the screen, I don't need any fancy graphics, although I might be tempted to play a few games in the future. I was interested in the Benq Eco ones ( http://www.ebuyer.com/product/179263?utm_source=google&utm_medium=products ) but someone suggested they might not be that great... I think they should probably be ok for my needs but was just wondering if anyone else has any suggestions? It's important that they are white though as I am using a white fractal R3 case and I'll be getting white keybaord and mouse too and turning my desk into an all white modern set up kinda thing with some blue L.E.D's. Blue L.E.D's make everything cool right?!

    Any advice would be greatly appreciated!

    Cheers,

    Sam.

    You can always find used NEC monitors. Most of them are white.

    Preowned NECs tend not to be great - 4:3 aspect ratio, and 15-19 inches. There are some new 22" NECs at the £200 mark, but you'd be just as well going for the BenQ since both monitors (pretty much any white monitor in that price bracket) will be using TN panel technology but the BenQ is a lot cheaper. I can vouch personally for BenQ quality - they are fantastic. The NEC monitors step up in price quickly, and the next in line will be a 20", 22" or 24" multisync IPS screen, and that's £400-650 right there.

    I did the "white thing" with my home office and it really works even if things aren't exactly white - silver/white/beige go well together and look very slick - so dont limit yourself to just white. ;)

    Huh incidentally I got a 4:3 20" NEC IPS for $100. It's not that bad, quite good actually.

    But if you want new you can dabble in other monitors.

    The LG ips screens go for about the same price.

    I was pretty surprised by the image quality on the AOC Razor 22" I bought as a temporary monitor. It has a white base and back, but a black bezel around the screen. Color is funky out of the box, but after turning the blue level down by about 10% it looks pretty decent. Won't touch an IPS obviously, but for a tn it looks better than many in my opinion. Looks like they currently cost around 88GBP from several sources.
