How much do you think I will notice the 400 cd/m2 brightness on the Acer as oposed to the 300 cd/m2 brightness on the Hyundi?

I dont know if stores like Best Buy carry the Hyundai but they may have the NEC, so if you see it and really like it then you probably won't go wrong, but I can defintly say that the Hyundai is a solid monitor. The Acer may be a good compromise between the two. Your best bet is to go to the store and read some reviews. This was the review that sold me on the Hyundai since Tom's tends to be a pretty fair and detailed review site.

If you are open to more suggestions, that Dell is a pretty nice monitor. I've got it's bigger brother and they really are nice screens. It also comes with free shipping.

Go for the Hyundai. It looks like the best value for money.
