Looking for a Widescreen 22" LCD - Page 4

If you get one pray its not a "C", from the same site http://www.behardware.com/articles/6...r-226bw-c.html

Apparently they are making it difficult to tell what version you get in response to people finding this out http://www.bcchardware.com/index.php...4259&Itemid=40
This is the only thing stopping me from getting this. Dissapointed with Samsung at the moment. I guess I will just grab an Acer

You can always recalibrate it

Edit: This was specifically for "C". There might be another one out there too. http://www.andrewswihart.net/blog/re...bw-lcd-c-panel

I love my Acer AL2223W just fine. With the amount of money I saved back when I got this monitor during the Best Buy deal for $189, the minor calibration needed seems rather trivial. If you're on a tight budget, this Acer will love you back just as much. Plus, the money I saved went towards getting an Ergotron LCD stand for $30 from Staples which now allows me to pivot, rotate, and swivel with the best of them!

I'll give another vote for the Acer's. For the money, and the quality, you can't beat them.

Don't bother with all that worrying about c, a, s.

Get the HP w2207.

I have one. It's just juicy. This guy puts it into perfect words

Read it. I can back up all his claims. You do not want to be cheap on a monitor. How often do you look at the inside of your computer compared to your monitor? I spend at least 3 hours everyday at my monitor. Money very well spent.
