This list selection of the best 19-inch monitors is limited to the monitors which have screens ranging from 19 inches to 21 inches.

However, this is a measurement taken diagonally from the left bottom corner to the top right one and includes only the inside display area of the panel leaving out the frame; so when we say 19 inches, we mean 19 inches diagonally.

Samsung and Viewsonic are typically behind some of the leading 19-inch monitors of the day, going green with their LED backlit panels.
