What's the difference between these 2 monitors?

Any difference? Which one is better? Both are same price.

Other than the name, I don't see anything different?

They're different. If you're using Firefox, then I can tell you exactly how to see the differences very easily.

Open a tab for each. And then, press ctrl+page down to select the next tab to the right, and ctrl+Page Up to select the next tab to the left. With these two keyboard short cuts, you can flip back-and-forth very, very quickly to compare. When you're done comparing the viewable portion of the page, scroll down with the arrow key until you get to a certain point. Now scroll down on the other page until you're at that exact same point (use the keyboard short cut to enable you to quickly compare), and then use the keyboard shortcut to compare again.

I think the differences are minor, but it seems like the HW-191-DPB is just a little better, but apparently by not enough to make it cost more.

But, starting from the top of the spec list, here are all the differences:
  • Pixel pitch: The JW has 0.283mm x 0.238mm, where the HW has just 0.283mm listed
  • Display Type: The JW is WXGA. The HW is WXGA+.
  • Power Consumption: The JW consumes 55W (Max.), and the HW consumes 42W (Max.)
  • User Controls: This is only listed for the HW, which lists "OSD in 11 languages".
  • Features: JW and HW are the same, but the HW also features a Panel Treatment they're calling Anti-glare Hardcoating.
  • Package Contents: Apparently the JW comes with a Support Disk, where the HW doesn't list one (but of course, why wouldn't it come with one, y'know?)
  • Dimensions(W x H x D): JW is 17.4" x 15.0" x 7.9". The HW is 17.8" x 14.6" x 7.8"
  • Weight: The JW is 10.3lbs, and the HW is 9.7lbs
So, as you can see, the HW is a better choice. Besides that, I think the HW looks a little better.

From what I see one has built in speakers, the other doesn't. They're identicle in features. It'll just come down to which one you think looks better.

I agree the that the HW looks better. I just hope that the "anti-glare hardcoating" is not infact "superglare annoying coating". Of course newegg didn't think to provide shots of the panel with the screen off, so you could tell between the two.

This is right. The HW has WXGA+ versus the JW's WXGA. The HW has the better quality screen.

Look again, both have speakers.

They are both WXGA+ (the other is mislabeled), which by definition is 1440 x 900 resolution or 1.29 million pixels. WXGA (non "plus") refers to resolutions below this (no set pixel count though, usually relegated to laptop widescreen LCDs)

To the OP: I say go for the HW, because it's lighter, uses less power, plus it has an anti-glare hard coating (the JW doesn't state that it has this feature). Otherwise the two are identical. I suggest you peruse the reviewer comments and see if there are any particular differences noted there.
