The 5 best "affordable" monitors as rated by CNET

    Well, the consensus seems to be that CNET sucks the chrome off a trailer hitch. I don't read a lot of reviews unless it's time to buy something and even then I just focus on the characteristics I really care about. I know they screwed up download.com with that bs downloader. 'It's a 300k dinky utility people - and you want I should dl your crap too - herpa-derp. Get bent.'

    I will remember to never, ever, ever again regard CNET as even authoritative-adjacent.

    Only the ones > 400 USD. Both of my displays when I bought them were 300 USD. For quality displays, some of the prices are reasonable for what you're getting, but not all of them. The article is poorly written imho.
