Viewsonic's LCD monitors are pretty nice. I just don't like their Widescreen ones though...too thick and the bezel makes it look bulky. I don't own one, but I've seen the 20" Widescreen at Costco up close.

Ouch, I hate dead pixels. I know they say 1 oe 2 don't matter, but to me, they actually do.

As for that monitor, do any games have trouble running in a wide screen mode you've tried playing? So you get a stretched game? Or can you set these monitors to cut out sides so that it doesnt stretch?

I've recently bought a 17 inch 8ms response time LCD from AMW, and its great as well not as big as yours, and not wide screen but hehe... okay...yours wins

How do you get a rebate?

I have only played one game on it Battlefront 1 it looked awesome it filled the whole screen no streching. Most games support widescreen now. I couldent get FEAR to run on it though for some reason it shifts to my 17inch CRT to the right lol. But i played FEAR on a custmors 23inch widescreen Apple Cinima display (THOES ARE NICE MONITORS) The dead pixel isent a big deal it is very annoying but i will just swap it out at work.

I got the rebate because i work at CompUSA. The monitor was $285 with my discount then i had $69 store credit (i guess you could call it) then you add $14 for the 2 year exchange plan (you know incase of dead pixels haha) Then there is a $50 mail in rebate. For everyone else in the world the monitor is $350 (it has intergrated shity speakers to but i dont use them because my Logitech Z2300s are right behind it lol :-))

I remember that Dell 20inch in the Gallery its nice as well. But do you have dual monitors lol

dont worry about the dead pixels, you probly wont care about them in about a month. thats what i did about my laptop, it bothered me at first because i valued it so much, and then i didnt seem to care anymore, its not so bad. but i love viewsonic! !!!! and netflix!!! I LOVE netflix!
