The 730B is very nice, but i like the 740B better. But mine is sooo nice I love it. Cheaper than an App.e 20.1" and just as good.

Yeah i was going to get the 730b (it was on sale last week) But then i saw this one that is 19inch and wide screen. Plus it has the same specs as the 730b and it was only $30 more.


The contrast on this one is 500:1

And yes the Z2300s are EXTREAMLY nice lol (got them for $50 brand new) THX certified

Yeah I was mad as shit too. Two days after I bought my 19" Flat Screen LCD I got one. But It does really bother me because the screen is big and I never really notice it. Hopefully I'll just have that one and wont get any more.

For one, I want to get some type of Logitech Z set. Though I only have a Sound Blaster Live! card, so not exactly the best of the range, but its done for about 6 years I believe? Around that, and these speakers are about 2 years old. An old Creative Inspire set (2.1), so yeah, I need better sound

And as for the monitor, for a 19inch that isn't bad, especially if it has a good refresh rate, and a good contrast/brightness ratio, and best and definietly not least, DVI support.
It gets points also if the DVI cable comes with it Unlike ONE I could mention...

I got mine for about 150 - 17 inch/DVI/8ms response time/350:1 brightness/500:1 Contrast/1280x1024 max rate.
