Now I just have to figure out which model. Unlike Viewsonic, I can't tell which is their high-end series, and which is their budget.
what size are you looking at and your budget?

With their typical prices and the quality you get...they are hard to pass up. Couldn't be happier with my 245BW, especially for the price I got at Costco:

When I was in the market for a 22" widescreen LCD last year, I actually put the 226bw next to the LG model (at work so I do not have the exact model number but I am pretty sure it is this one; L226WTY-BF) for a side to side comparison. The image quality on both monitors looked pretty much the same so I had to find one I liked based on other features. In the end I chose the LG and got 2 of them. The main 2 reason for choosing the LG's were the thinner bezel around the display (they look nicer when running dual screens) and I did not like the gloss finish on the Samsung's bezel. Otherwise the quality of the image looked the same in both movies and games. Hope this helps.

I actually got yelled at by the store employee for moving the flat panels around...

Oh, that's in my original post. But I think I'm beginning to lean towards these 5 monitors the most:

Comparison page: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824001254

Samsung 2053BW, 2253LW, 2043BWX, 2253BW, 2243BWX.

But I don't know their series. For example, the ViewSonic X Series is clearly their high end series. But with Samsung, I find it impossible to tell. I mean, I'd go with ViewSonic to avoid the confusion, but it looks like Samsung is better than they are.

Anyway, I sincerely appreciate all of the votes and replies.

Wow, that employee has no customer service skills at all. lol

Anyway, I've been thinking a lot about the high gloss finish, and when I saw it for the first time, my reaction was like "why would anyone want a high-gloss finish on their monitor??? That doesn't make any sense to me."

So, what didn't you like about it? Was it distracting, or did it look cheap, or stupid? What were your feelings at the time?

the 2043bwx and 2243bwx has usb ports in them (do you need/want them)?
the 2243bwx and 2043bwx has only a 5ms refesh rate to the rest is 2ms
2253bw is the best choice in my oppinion

Oh, but I think that they're all 5ms/2ms. It looks like the 2ms is the Gray to Gray time. I mean, if it were 100% 2ms, I would think it would cost over $350.

Widescreen LCD Monitor with HDCP Support
is what sell it for me
another thing to note is when the screen is in gaming mode if the signal is not in ws then it will put the black border there so the image displays correctly

It was distracting and from experience things reflect in the bezel and can shine in your eyes. Not good while coming around a corner in COD4 looking to cap a baddie... It does not look cheap or anything, just a personal preference.

Yep, very true, however, I probably won't really "notice" it.

Hmm, I have a feeling I'll like it.
