Default Best flatpanel for around $250?????

Well lets hear some opinions, in the mean time I just scored a 22" monitor for $266 shipped + tax

go to dell.com to find the 22" monitor that came out today.....

then go to ebay purchase a 10% off coupon, that brings the price down to $266 or so SHIPPED.



800:1 contrast ratio and 5ms is not bad for an entry level LCD.....

I'll give a full review since it just came out today and there are no other reviews on it yet anywhere.

Basically I have to spend $70 to upgrade to a 22" since I'm selling my 19" for 200 bucks.

for laughs pull up the E228WFP on ebay and laugh.....

na save your money for the 27" that you dont need a dual link capable video card for..However I imagine your video card will probably run a 30" no problem.

after some research it appears dell uses a samsung or NEC panel for the 22", I'm not 100% sure but its speculation

so that means this $379.99 Monitor on newegg is the same product, however the dell screen is "samsungs updated screen" that has an 800:1 contrast ratio and the 300 brightness spec.
