Orginal title and question
Quote:
Anyone have a Benq T221wa 22"?

Looking for a new LCD screen would the title one be any good ?

couldn't find a review of it though
Looking for some input on them from people that has one would be great

also how is it to game on a widescreen

also is the 226bw worth the extra price?

Gaming on widescreen depends. Usually it is awesome but only if the game is done the right way.

For example, there are two ways to make games widescreen. One version (the awesome one) adds stuff to the sides. The other is to crop the top and bottom off of your view area... which sucks hardcore.

None, get the Sceptre 22" WS.

I prefer it over my neighbors Samsung 226bw.
