    so my mom is really smart by telling me today that she's decided to get my dad a 17" lcd screen for x-mas.
    i'm not sure why she couldn't have told me last week so i could have gotten some type of black friday/cyber monday deal

    looking to keep it under $150, not a piece of crap either

    Hmm, I would look at the Westinghouse 19"s. They're great performance to price value and right in that range.

    I looked around when I saw the thread, but the Acer deal ^^^ is just about as good as you can expect to find now.
    Too bad she waited until after BF to let you know.

    I had the standard aspect ratio version of that, before I upgraded.

    Good solid monitor, with no problems. I gave it to my kids mom, and she loves it too.
