Default Difference between these two monitors?

http://www.walmart.com/search/search....y=9&Find=Find


The monitor is the Acer X223Wbd

And while were at it what do you guys think about this monitor? Since mine is toast I am going to order two new ones. I sit a little under my monitor and I need to tilt it down to see it good so the black doesnt mix with the other colors. I think thats a result of low contrast, which my old scepture I think was 1000:1 so with this new monitor I will more then double it. i think I should be ok there.

Those contrast ratios mean nothing in real life. They're manipulated in order to achieve those high ratings.

Instead of aiming simply for size, try to find something that has a nice balance between reliability and quality along with price.

Do you have any suggestions?

Im not aiming for size. I'm just used to my large monitor and I wanted to upgrade my second 17'' monitor. I think 22'' is a great size unless you have something I would like otherwise.

Nice, but a little spendy for two.

I was thinking maybe also keeping my 17" and buying one of these

"Difference between these two monitors?"

One letter and $2.18. It looks like two revisions of the same monitor. The specs are identical. Acer makes a very nice monitor. I really like my 19" Acer X192W. It has great picture quality.

Sure. I've had great luck with Samsung monitors.

Lol I might be able to get two of these if I strech it.

Boy would that be hard on my little 7600GT.

What do you think about those 24'' monitors? Sceptur ones looks very nice but I was under the assumption Acer made better monitors - which is better since they're the same price?
