Default I ordered it!

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824252008



I ordered the open box version, it was $199. I just hope it'll work without any flaws or crazy amount of dead pixels...

what do you think?

yeah that sounds right, thanks. I never had any problems with Newegg.
I can't wait to get it. Anyone else have a 22" widescreen?

looks like a nice buy. Personally i would have jsut gotten a normal 22" since i'm not one for wide-screen, but that still looks nice.

Yep, I like it too. I'm fine with my 17", but that screen is just fine IMO I'm thinking of hooking up a 17" CRT for Dual displays, but those screens are just too big!

I've got a 22", it's really nice. The extra space is great.

@ BGates - Once you go dual monitors, you'll never want to go back. It makes things soo much easier.

The contrast ratio is fine, 800:1 should be excellent. I was going to order a Viewsonic 20" widescreen with 1000:1 but I couldn't pass up this deal.
