Default Acer Moniter -- Which one to buy?

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...e=Acer+America

I'm looking at both of these although I am unsure of which one to get.

Acer AL2223Wd Black-Silver 22" 5ms DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor - Retail
# Contrast Ratio: 800:1
# Display Colors: 16.2 Million

Acer AL2216Wbd Black 22" 5ms DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor with HDCP support - Retail
# Contrast Ratio: 700:1
# Display Colors: 16.7 Million

Which one is better, the only difference between the two is the contrast ratio and display colors. One has better contrast ratio but low display colors while the other has a lower contrast ratio but more displayer colors. So which one is the better buy?

Thanks.

I'm looking for a 20-22'' LCD Moniter, if you know of any which are better than these two and they are under 260$ shipped and off newegg please inform me of such.

I would go with the first one, cuz you will notice a bigger difference with the contrast ratio, than with .5 million colors.

Your best bet would be the Acer AL2223Wd. It's 800:1 contrast ratio will provide a brighter, more vibrant picture. Don't worry about the display colors. I highly doubt that anyone can really tell the difference between 16.7 and 16.2 million.

^^ I've had bad luck with samsung and I will never buy another one of their products.

Is this any good, respectable company?

Viewsonic IMO is one of the best monitors in the industry. My house has two 17" flatpanels. They are very reliable and very good quality.

I would say "YES" on getting it. Good reviews, very good contrast ratio (comparable to HDTVs), and OK colors. Like we said, you won't notice a difference between 16.2 and 16.7 million colors.

Looks nice but has bad reviews; out of all the ones I've posted, which should I buy?
