21" viewsonic monitors weigh in at around 73lbs, add another 20lbs if it's a
trinitron tube. I've had good luck with viewsonic professional series of
monitors, I still have some kicking around with 2001 date codes on them.
The big problem with them is the thermal and physical foot print. One
fellow at $WORK lamented that he was no longer able to heat up his lunch on
his 19" flat panel with a dell in lieu of his 21" on an u60. The 21" sun
monitors that we still have kicking around (dual input vga/13w3) typically
have a better picture than their replacement 19" sceptre monitors which have
the problem of having blurry spots on the screen. The ones that are more
than 2 years old also have a habit of crapping out. As many tube monitors
that are often 2x the age get replace in a year as the crap lcd's.
also if you've ever had to move, or move a 21" monitor up a flight of stairs
it really sucks.
