    If you can wait till friday check out the black friday ads if they have them in your area. 22" Acer for $169 at Circuit City, and there are other sales for simular monitors.

    Hmm.... Thanks I guess... I just wanted to know if westinghouse was any good, since it was such a huge price cut.

    It wasn't a huge price cut, Newegg has the same monitor for 420$, it has always been like that. Best Buy is tricking people into making it seem like they are getting discounts.

    Unless you're a very hardcore gamer, the ViewSonic VX2255wmb is a better choice for the same price.

    If it's the Same Price how would an inferior monitor be better? Also they aren't the same, the Samsung is better and cheaper.

    Oye. Do you ever get tired of backing up your factless claims? The VX2255wmb has noticeably better color than the 226BW, and an integrated web cam (not a deciding factor, but nice to have anyways). The only reason you would consider getting the 226BW is if you're a tourney-level hardcore gamer because of its slightly faster response time, and in that case, you'd want a smaller 19" displays with even less.

    It's not factless newegg's specs clearly shows the Samsung is superior, The Samsung is brighter, though it has the same res, it also has a faster response rate and for cheaper, spending extra money for a webcam? Why bother? I doubt there are any 19'' with 1ms response rate. Face it, the Samsung is the better buy. If he needs a Webcam he gets the Viewsonic, if he doesn't the Samsung is obviously better.

    I recommend starting with that thread I linked earlier. It'll fill you in on the basics of what you should look for.

    I'm done, there's no point in arguing with you. I know the Samsung is better. But since your in Denial, I won't bother to keep this conversation going.

    Urza, this isn't the testing forum. And Ze, he's trying to be silly, he's no longer talking about the topic at hand.

    I'm sorry but my last post was not spam. I just hate how he always tries to argue and have the last word. Like an immature baby.

    Your post wasn't spam, but it was a reply to an off-topic discussion that no longer exists. Anywho continue with the topic. Monitor deals and such.
