Default new monitor

ok im asking your opinion. ive been looking at 22" lcds for a while now. and ive come to 2 options for myself.
first is the acer:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824009094
i really like this because its a vert respectable brand for their monitors, its also a great price. also all the reviews are positive except for some complaints for minor backlight bleeding (they dont seem to mind and i sure as hell wont).

second is the samsung:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824001268
now this thing just looks beautiful (the bezel does). ive played with one of these at the local office max (it was the 21" model but same thing). great quality, higher contrast ratio than that of the acer, but its $80 more. is that worth it?

please give me your input. i would really like to save the $80 for the new zune since i miss mine already. right now my budget is $350 so the acer would really keep me close to that zune. thanks.

I have the samsung, and i love it. It looks really nice. However the stand is terrible and troublesome, it doesn't really tilt at all. if you tilt it back, it sorta just falls off the stand which not good. If you don't move your monitor, than you'll be fine. Its awesome as long as you don't really wiggle it as the monitor may fall of its stand. x(

the Samsung is pretty good it has a higher contrast ratio and uses less power if you care, but for the price the acer would be a good choice. i would go with the acer.

ok thanks guys. i figured i would get the acer for the price. im not that touchy about the quality for i hardly notice stuff like that. i heard lots of complaints about the bezel for the samsung but it does indeed look nice. well im gonna get the new zune and since my birthday is coming up ill have money for the monitor in no time.
