    There are a few things to look for in an LCD monitor.

    1) The obvious: Resolution and size. Since your going for a 17" monitor most displays will have a native resolution of 1280 x 1024 which is acceptable.

    2) Contrast: Contrast is usually depicted as a ratio (e.g. 500:1). The higher the ratio the better.

    3) Luminance: Brightness depicted as cd/m(squared) should be as high as possible.

    4) Vertical viewing angle: It should be as wide as possible (ideally should be greater than or equal to 120 degrees).

    5) Response time: Refers to how quickly an LCD can refresh a pixel on the screen. Typically ranges between 12ms and 25ms. The lower the response time, the better.

    6) DEAD PIXELS!!!: This is absolutely a must-check before buying an LCD. Fixing a dead pixel is impossible and so you must avoid them when you buy the monitor. The best way is to apply a bright white wallpaper and check for black dots on the screen.

    After checking all that here is Tom's Hardware Guide's comparison of LCD monitors as of November 2004, so it's slightly out of date but these models would be common in India now I presume.

    Hope that helps.

    @Rizaaj, LG and Samsung are the most famous among LCD monitors in India.

    @DMF, Thats quite an informative post. I will check all those things out especially the dead pixel part. (Good Reps)

    @Nadish, I have heard of Viewsonic but never seen its monitors yet, will check them out too.
