I am in the market for a 19" lcd and am trying to nail down the most critical aspects before I purchase one. One aspect I still do not understand fully is viewing angle. I realize one is better, but which is better is my question. (The guides I have read do not seem to actually explain which is a better viewing angle). So say I am looking at two lcds and one has a viewing angle of: 140°(H) / 130°(V) and the other I am looking at has a viewing angle of: 170°(H) / 170°(V) Which is better? I am guessing the larger number is better but am not positive of that. By larger number meaning you can be at a larger angle away from the monitor and still see the monitor clearly. If that is the case what is a decent minimum to look at. Side to side is not as important to me but top to bottom is very important.
