Topping the list

Who has the most thorough reviews of LCD monitors? Why Government Computer News, of course. The Consumer Search online review site, run by e-vendor About.com, compared the thoroughness and objectivity of reviews from 30 monitor review sites. GCN articles placed first and second on the list, coming well ahead of PC Magazine, CNet, ExtremeTech and other respected computer equipment review sites and publications. Here's what Consumer Search said about the article that topped the list:

John Breeden II reviews eight larger LCD monitors. Testing is as objective as possible and more relevant than any other review source. Thorough testing of text quality is unmatched. Breeden looks at multiple fonts. Another exemplary aspect of his testing is measuring the difference in brightness between the center and the corners and edges of each monitor (they can be surprisingly large).


Word up: GCN lab reviewers John Breeden II and Greg Crowe don't mess around.
