Glad you like it...To add to my previos Post i voted for Dell in this case.
post #17 of 26
the one main thing that I was concerned about was the response time. If it's too high....when you are gaming....you'll ghost :| It REALLY sucks man

I'd pick up the dell if I were you. It's also black and sexy

Just remember, specs aren't everything.

I'm not sure about Dell, but Samsung supposedly has a 'perfect pixel' policy. One dead pixel= they'll replace it. Most manufacturers (ie: Sony) require 6-8 dead pixels before they replace it.
