SAMSUNG 216BW vs Acer AL2216Wbd

I'm getting the samsung but just wanted to make sure till it's not too late. Which one is better? I don't think .4'' will make any noticeable difference? I don't feel like paying $75 extra for the 226BW for only .4''.

You don't think what's worth $60 more? The jump to the 226bw from the 216bw? It's actually $75 more for .4 inch.

That is my personal opinion, I am easy to please, but side by side the Sammy looks crisper, sharper, and more glossy. I am just easy to please. I only play css, and it looks great on both lcd's. I would be willing to bet most people would pay the extra for the Sammy.

It is a good choice, I am comparing the Sammy to the Acer. .4" is no big deal, to be honest, I prob don't really use the extra .4" on the 22". Just stretched out the extra unused space on web pages

fo sure , it is deff the better choice if you are looking for quality. I guess what I am trying to say is if you want size at a budget Acer makes a great LCD, but if you want high quality to go with the size, the Sammy is the ticket, and it really is worth the extra $ if pic quality is important. Consider this is comming from a guy who has had a Sony 22ms res. 19" lcd for 4+yrs now. When I got the Acer I was very happy. So happy that I decided to replace the Sony with another one. That was when I realized I had a buddy at Best Buy that could get me the Sammy for about $10.00 more I should have gotten the Sammy from him first and I would now have 2.
