Here's the Acer 2223W along with my 17". I really like it, but the stand is not the best.

Don't wait ANY longer on this decision.
I know, I need to stop waiting around for this decision. I just have been worried about the money. I have been trying to save up for car, moving out etc... but then again I will be looking at this thing for countless hours for the next year or so (aspiring game developer, self teaching myself opengl as we speak). So I shouldn't low ball something like this.

so true, one dead pixel would bug the **** out of me, and make all that money go to waste, but i got the vx922 w/ no dead pixels off the internet...

and I don't know of too many people that get dead pixels so I'm not so worried.

thanks for all your help... I did the same thing with my rig, I spent countless hours last fall just researching researching researching till xmas came along, if I would have just built it right off the bat, I could have enjoyed it all fall long I don't want to waste anymore of my summer waiting around for a monitor... ahh such a tough decision! So many legit choices!

edit: Ok found out a great deal through HP. Sign up for their Academic Purchase Program, get discounts on their items, no tax (I believe) and free shipping... leaving the w2207 for $357 .

So HP w2207 for 357 total (hp direct)
Samsung 226bw for 342(free shipping)-20 MIR = 322 total (egg)
Acer X222wbd for 315 total (egg)

Stand off between hp and samsung...

ok... I have made my final decision....

HP W2207

Simply because, when I saw it in real life, the colors just blew my socks off, and I just wanted to be at the computer, just to look at how beautiful the color is. The start menu literally pop'd out at me!

The built in swivel to 90 degrees is a huge plus, as it will be very helpful when school comes back around...

I will try to see if I can get the BB guy to do a head to head comparison of the Sammy and HP, I bet the HP will win.

once I have the money... which should be soon

hmm, I have been considering a new 22" ( i have a 19" at the moment) but im not sure if the 3" jump is worth it. Do you think 24" will have a price drop in the next 6-12 months?
