Re: monitor question
I have that, and when I used it with my PC it was awesome, much better quality than my LCD screen on the Laptop. Now that I'm using it with my iMac, it looks like hell. I personally still think it is a great monitor, I really might just keep it hooked up to my Laptop instead of ever using it with my iMac, the screen on the iMac just makes it look that much worse. My roommate has the samsung 226bw that Killthenakedcat posted about above, and you cannot tell one difference between the Acer and that. Honest to god. Just know, neither of us game at all on our PCs so that might be where they are set apart. I have that Acer, and I say go for it. Id be surprised if you didnt like it.
