    Go with the Sammy... you will be much more pleased. I just got some 19" Samsungs for work, they are all nice. (well, one is having a weird flicker problem, so i'll have to RMA it) But the one i have on my desk is perfect and very clear.

    Both are crappy TN panels, would personally never ever even consider a TN monitor. As for the 22 vs 24" the advantage of going up 2 inches is that you also get a larger resolution 1920x1200 good for full HD.

    Somebody posted this link a while back, and this has to be the mother of all LCD info sites.
    Just click on a sub category to the left, and you can pull up pretty much everything by all the main manufacturers out there.
    Oddly, I couldn't find Sceptre in there though.

    226bw crew here also and well worth

    when you go 24 in though you pay 600 for a good monitor or something near that and for me that was not worth 2 inches

    ok and it is still a 300 dollar price increase from 22 to 24 so in my opinion 22 is the better buy

    My experience with Soyo is that their customer service is horrible.

    And those only had a 1 year warranty last time I checked.

    i've been using a pair of 20" dell monitors at work for quite a while now and find them to be very nice. i have the 2001FP monitors. we have a lot of them in my office and i haven't seen any serious issues with them.

    2 things though, i think these are business models, so i'm not sure if the consumer ones are any different. the other is that i'm using them for office type apps, not gaming or watching video.

    dell's business product is QUITE different than the consumer product. Although more reliable, they are generally not suitable for the uses a consumer typically desires.

    Regardless, dell is infamous for very deceitful business practices -- which include sending different panels in the same bezel to review agencies while shipping a completely different, shittier panel to consumers... That way they get good reviews, but then fuck customers.

    Dell should not be allowed to do business.

    Do you know if that is a common issue with other people too? I am just assuming you have done some research....

    I have had my Samsung 206BW for a decent amount of time now and I still like it, never a single problem.

    You are so fucking full of shit, aren't you?
    Someone even thinks dell and you scream 'shit' at them....
    :rolleyes:





    I bought a Dell 2208WFP a couple weeks ago and if I'd get my computer built to run multiple monitors I'd buy another one with no second though...

    yes it's a TN panel. OMG160*viewingangleshitshitshit!.. Who fucking looks at a monitor outside of 25*? yeah, sure I can look at the side of my 2007 at work (not a TN panel) and it still looks 'normal', but who the fuck cares?

    I've got NO complaints with color and I haven't touched the settings..

    there is ZERO backlight bleeding.. NONE.

    It gets like a 3.9 rating on Dell.com and I think they are high...



    And this is all through a VGA connection....

    Okay, maybe if you are blind as a bat then you can't tell the difference between a good lcd, a dell, and a brick wall.

    ...then the definition of what you consider a 'good LCD' is obviously way more monitor than anyone - but you - really need...
