In my opinion you should look at the Samsung 226BW. (not the 216BW) It has the best numbers, and has a great price. It would also be the best for everything else.

Both are the same thing. Go by which one you think looks cooler?

i'd say go for the Samsug. They have the biggest reputation, but then again, look at who offers the best terms for the warranty too, and check shipping on the Dell model. Shipping on the egg is only 9.99$, and quality wise, those two are preety much matched. when you check the shipping and they come to the same price, get the Samsung. It's one inch bigger

In that case pick up the one that is easiest to get, price, delivery etc. because they are basically both the same and are both really good panels. Maybe do like you said and pick by looks! It never hurts to have a good looking system.

I have two Samsung that are both great, but my brother has two of the Dell panels and they look and work great too.

Yes both of the monitors in your first post are the same because Samsung makes them for Dell.. But go with the Samsung anyway

Westinghouse is ok but not as good as Samsung.
