Places like Circuit City have non-static wipes you can buy that are suitable for LCD monitors. They're a little pricey, but it's worth the peace of mind.

I just use water and a soft cloth.

as long as you don't touch the screen with your fingers (one of my pet peeves :D ) then compressed air will remove all of the dust quite nicely.

I did that but I think I got too close, cuz the monitor blew over. Oh wait were you talking about canned air or a air compressor? :angel2:

Distilled water and a 100% cotton cloth, with light pressure, is the best way to do it IMO. I would stay away from chemicals and definitely nothing sharp or abrasive at all. All it takes is one screwup and you can kiss that thing bye-bye.

Hey don't laugh, you ever seen what is left over in a humidifier if you fill it with plain tap water? Crud, a bunch of calcium, ash and mineral crud..it's gross. There is some nasty stuff in there...even if you have a water softener. :) So distilled water my sound a bit anal...but I'd rather wipe my $$$ LCD down with that than tap water.

grab some cotton pads and some isobryl alcohol, wipe in one direction only.

Old tube sock, turned inside-out. Don't poke your screen with fingers, don't cough or sneeze on it, and it will not have anything but dust on it.
