You should check out this monitor. I ordered a 2493HM last week, but I had to RMA it because half of the menu buttons weren't working. The screen was solid, no dead pixels! There's only 1 problem with it though. You can't see the menu buttons when the screen is on because it's so bright. The menu buttons aren't lit, so its extremely difficult to tell where the buttons are.

The T series isn't as good for gaming and is a lot more than I am looking to spend. I don't use menu buttons all that often.

i was so pumped to get my monitor but it wasn't out in Canada yet........so i saw a deal and shipped it to the US boarder and then drove it across

(i paid $619.99 in december of 07)-----(but it was my christmas present so my folks paid 1/2 of it)

i LOVE this monitor, but don't have a 245BW for comparison so i don't know if it looks alot better or not.

Only downside is that it has a dead pixel

but at least it's the best kind. the only color it can't show is off, so it is normal for anything but black and it's just above the taskbar on the RHS of the screen so the only time i ever see it is when i boot up

at first the color didn't astound me, but then i upgraded to my 3870's and tried some calibration files that were posted on a review i read (made with hardware calibration) and everything pops now.

i don't know about monitors released since my purchase but i would like to see a 2407WFP-HC beside it as that was my second choice for a monitor and it was about $40-$50 cheaper
