Ok, I got my 22" Acer LCD about 3 weeks ago, and loved it. I hated my old sony 19"lcd sitting next to it, so I decided to get another 22" lcd. I was just about to order another 22" Acer, when it hit me, I have a friend who works at Best Buy and gets employe discount, so I called him. Turns out I could get the Samsung for cheaper. So I had to make a decision; Have matching 22" Acer's, or have one Sammy and one Acer. So being the smart guy that I amI got the Sammy. They look really nice next to each other, and the sammy deff. has a sharper and more glossy picture, but the Acer seems warmer and brighter. Both have bleed thru at top and bottom of screen, not a problem for me barely noticeable. I can say for sure if I was to buy from scratch, I would only get the sammy if It was the same price or within $10.00. While it is a better screen, I don't think it is $50.00+ better.
