Default Re: New Moniter (Sick 19''W Acer)

Widescreens plus LCD TV's. I just got back from shopping at Best Buy and COmpUSA, whew--so many inquiry's on LCD TV's, with HD support.

My next monitor will be a widescreen too. In the meantime, my laptop provides a decent 14" widescreen that gives me plenty of view space for the small size. That's what I love about it. Small, but big?

Im not seeing much better for the price. And that one has the name backing it up. Just looks like a great over all moniter. And it will take advantage of my DVI on my 7600gt.

This is the list that I am going off of.



So anyways, just I want some opinions. Im 80% sure ill get that. Assuming mom lets me... But anything else I should consider?

Edit-
Now looking at this moniter too..
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824116373

How do they compare?
Your taking a gamble with newegg. If you get dead pixels (8 or less) they wont cover you.

newegg wont, but acer will.

i have seen RMA's on acer moniters go through with just one (ONE!) dead pixel.

Then I throw it around and say it was damaged in transit.

Because it's a WXGA+ get wallpaper that fits the screen resolution.

Yeah, it should be fine for what I need. And I want to buy it today so I get the -15$.

LOL that made me laugh. I could just see it happening where you get it and see there's exactly 8 dead pixels. "hmm only 8? oops! dropped it! damn, now there is 73 dead pixels. Looks like shipping gets a fail "
