Default Re: Acer Moniter -- Which one to buy?

I would say the last one, but if the reviews scare you too much and you are second-guessing that one, go with the one before it that I had previously recommended. IMHO those are your two best bets.

Sit down for a minute. The first screen has a more crisp image compared to the second one.

However, the second one owns HDCP. Unless you have a HDCP device (Radeon HD series) or anything that has a HDCP port, buy the first.

As for the Sceptre, meh, I'd recommend you the Acers.

@ rudster, the viewsonic he presented in post #10 is very decent with a contrast ratio of 2000:1, so I recommend that if he wants to take the chance. 50% of the reviews were five stars, and some of the bad reviews people just put in for S***s and giggles.

Heh, I had a lot of bad experiences with Viewsonic/NEC. They don't last forever, well, it's lifespawn is less than the Acer.

Of the last two choices, the ViewSonic Optiquest Series Q20WB. Much better contrast ratio, excellent quality.

Somebody actually agreed with me. Just kidding, but that is still my recommendation for what you see it as.
