I don't know which is best since they seem to have about the same on review ratings, but I'd like the 22" Acer better.

I have the 205BW Samsung and I can tell you that it is beautiful and worth the money. However, the Acer is bigger and has the same/slightly better specs, so it wouldn't hurt to go with that.

I would go with samsung, because if the screen is too big, it wont be very comfortable for your eyes 2 see. The samsung is a bit smaller so its more eye friendly. But if you are a hardcore gamer, then go with acer.

Depends. It's the age old "quality vs. quantity" argument. The Samsung will be better quality no doubt because it's more pixels in a smaller area, but if you want the extra inches, then go for it.

They both use TFT panels. They're the value kind, not the best quality in comparison to the rest. Most gaming monitors use TFT panels though to get extremely low response times. If you want a better quality monitor, go for the Dell 2007WFP.
