You posted a link for the Samsung 204BW. If you look, the 205BW is only 1 dollar more. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824001081

I also happen to own it, and its a great monitor. Easy to set up and very nice and sharp. The only thing I can tell is you is when you plug in the power cord in the back feel right next to it for the power switch. You can't see it because the ports are facing downward but it is there.

I have a Samsung SyncMaster 931BW that i stayed up all night for at best buy, $129, usually $250. 19" widescreen, 2ms response rate, 700:1 contrast ratio, 1440x900. The picture is simply amazing, the colors jump out, contrast is great, utterly destroys my previous crt. If you pick a resolution that matches the aspect ratio of the monitor, it won't squish anything lol. Anyhow, I highly recomend getting a samsung lcd.
