22'' Widescreen Moniters - Acer, BenQ

FijiPlus, Hannas G and Acer 19''W


Those are just all the moniters I would consider. However, what exactly is WXGA+ and WXGA. I know the W stands for Wide, but is there a difference between XGA plus ans XGA?

It landed on heads for the 19'' but I kicked it and made it 22'' tails.

My luck sucks

Lol id call it the... side.

But @alvino.. God, I dont know.

The whole bigger is better image is burned into my head. But I know the 19'' would be perfect for me.

As much as it hurts I think I am going with the 19'' just so I dont spend needless money.

Well just get whatever you think you'll need. Trust me though...once you go widescreen, you'll never turn back.

I have gone widescreen. I just dont own anything widescreen LOL

I really want the resolution of the 20'' at least though. But thats 90 dollars I dont need to spend.

Maybe splurge? IDK.... AHH!!!!

Advice from my bother



Quote:
I say:

-Don't get a 19", wait and get a 22" you will regret it later if you buy a
19" trust me.
-Ask for the iPod for your B-Day.
-Ask for the 360 for X-Mas (don't get a Wii, or I will kick you in the nuts)
-Wait and save up for the monitor.

Monitors will do nothing but come down in price, ESPECIALLY on Black Friday,
there are lots of deals to be had. Besides after X-mas monitor prices in
general will be cheap because new technology comes out during the new year.
iPods, they don't come down in price for a LONG time. XBOX 360, rumor is
that when the PS3 drops, Microsoft is going to drop the price on the 360,
that way you will be saving money for Mom and Dad for X-mas.

Case closed.
Is he saying wait untill after xmas to buy the moniter?

To correct him, Microsoft has no plans to drop the price of the Xbox 360. As long as it remains cheaper than the PS3, you most likely won't see any price cuts. However, you'll probably see some pretty good bundles from Microsoft like the Xbox 360 Premium with PGR3 and an extra wireless controller for a reasonable price etc.

He is right though. Just wait for the price to drop. Monitor prices VERY RARELY raise back up in prices, if ever at all.
