    I know, I shouldn't spend the money, but it was my birthday yesterday and I got about $300 in the mail :wiggle:

    If I get the 22" I can get the CPL I want too, but I could hold off till next month, and just get 24" now :naughty:

    Big difference between the ultrasharp and the non? They only have 19" and 24" ultrasharps refurbished. the 24" is a little out of my price range, the 19" is pretty much the same price as the 22"

    I personally think so, yeah. Up to you though. Ill admit that its nice to have a large monitor to do photo work on even if its not an "ultra-sharp" or something similar.

    Some reviews on the $209 one...

    Pros: Great Price
    Cons: Monitor Display
    Summary: I am extremely disappointed in the Dell E228WFP 22" Widescreen. The price is great
    for your normal everyday web surfing and misc apps. But not for graphic design. I have an ULTRA SHARP 2005 20" WS. The color is vivid. Viewing angles are grea... read more >>


    Pros: Price, case and stand design, DVI input
    Cons: Color accuracy, no height adjustment
    Summary: I just bought a new MacBook Pro and needed a value priced external display to hook up to it. This 22" Dell LCD for about $330.00 hit the spot. Its case and stand design are sleek compared to some of the other designs out there. (except maybe Apple... read more >>


    Pros: cheap, 3yr warranty
    Cons: abysmal color reproduction
    Summary: after spending 2hrs trying to get this monitor to render gray i gave up... it's big and relatively nice (and quiet when you turn down the brightness) but terrible at trying to display a shade of gray that doesn't have green/red in it.



    Pros: comes with a dvi cable
    Cons: jagged text, takes about an hour to get a borderline decent picture
    Summary: This is the first review I've written because for once I've encountered a product so bad that I really can't bare to see others make the same mistake.

    hmm after reading those reviews I dunno now. I think 19" is too small, and my current desk wont really work well for dual monitors (its kinda small). Maybe ill save a bit more money and just get the 24" ultra sharp.

    Monitors usually last a good while right? like 5 years or so?
