Ok thanks for your input and I'll consider it. I have a few questions... On the samsung the 2ms is grey to grey. On the LG is the 2ms grey to grey or black to black? And, I'm upgrading from this monitor and will I get any better image quality if I choose either the LG or 226BW or will it just be bigger w/ comparable quality?
I'm not sure about the "gray to gray" thing, but I know response times anywhere below 25ms, yes 25ms, don't really make that much of a difference. This is because first of all, the human eye is not even capable of detecting changes that quickly, and second because it typically beats your refresh rate anyway. Remember, 20 Milliseconds is .02 seconds, or 2 one hundredths of a second. Since the human eye has trouble distinguishing anything much higher than 40 Frames per second, this equates to about 1 frame about every .025 seconds, or 25 milliseconds - which brings us back to the response time.... so I wouldn't worry about the ms response time to tell you the truth. Ghosting can be a problem on some earlier LCD models, but the Samsungs do not have this problem whatsoever, at least from my experiences.

And yes, the image quality may be a little better with the 22", but not a whole lot compared to the monitor you said you already have. The size will blow you away though... I went from a 16" to a 22" and said "Wowzers!", lol. I think you'd really like the Samsung 225BW or 226BW. Like I said, the quality on the 226BW may be a little better, but the best value is the 225 for sure.

EDIT: The 225 has a height adjustment, whereas the 226 does not. I wouldn't let that be a deciding factor, but it's just something to keep in mind. I'm glad mine has it.

yeah sure those arent bad for 30 bucks do it up although the problem with those is the bass is almost to much and you cant really turn it down it has an adjustment switch but even all the way down its a bit much

Yeah those look nice but I don't have that much space for that many speakers. I just need 2 with a sub. Right now I have 2 nonbrand with a sub and I just need anything. The reviews on them seem good and I'll find out for myself. Thanks a lot for your help.
