    The brightness is more even on an LED one and they should use less power. But LED ones /are/ still LCD, it is just the backlight that has changed (unless you get an OLED one, in which case they are completely different)

    The only difference is how the panels are backlit, LED panels use LEDs as opposed to cold-cathode fluorescent lamps which are more energy efficient and allow manufacturers to make slimmer screens.

    There is no significant performance difference between them.

    LED does give a slight better colour and a bit less bleeding on bright colours next to dark ones

    as for the thickness I went from a LG flatron LCD to Iiyama LED and the only difference in thickness on the screens is the LG had a power block on the back of the screen and the Iiyama has a in-line power block on the mains lead other than that the thickness isn't that much different.

    No Canadian links?

    Do you want help with those or do you have it covered?

    I'm looking for a slightly smaller monitor than the ones listed, about 21". Two HDMI would be nice too.

    Any ideas? Thanks.

    Well LG do a 22" varient of the one recomended in the top of the thread:

    [url]http://www.amazon.co.uk/LG-W2253V-22-LCD-Monitor/dp/B00261VAUK/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1294222684&sr=1-1[/url]

    Alternatively Samsung offer a similarly spec'd product:

    [url]http://www.amazon.co.uk/Samsung-SyncMaster-B2230H-display-widescreen/dp/B0038P9AUU/ref=pd_sim_sbs_computers_4[/url]

    As do BenQ:

    [url]http://www.amazon.co.uk/BenQ-G2220HD-21-5-Inch-Monitor/dp/B001WRMOTU/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1294222987&sr=1-1[/url]

    Also Ilyama:

    [url]http://www.amazon.co.uk/Ilyama-PLE2210HDS-B-22-inch-Widescreen-Monitor/dp/B002TO4LX2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1294223197&sr=1-1[/url]

    Looking at those, the LG or the Ilyama look like the best to me...
