and of course the Samsung 226BW, but that tacks on an extra $100 that I can't necesarily justify in my search for a new monitor.
The 2ms sounds nice and all, but it's quite insignificant in the grand scheme of things when you really compare 5ms to 2ms and how the human eye sees things. Just looking, you'd never be able to tell. Color clarity, etc?
I dunno, if you guys have any other thoughts/ideas let me know. the $100 price diff. is what's the killer for me here more than anything for monitors that would do the job quite well and not be so expensive.
i had two of them acers before i got this dell, i really think you should go for it, it is cheap and effective, also, lcds are more like human eyes, they "blurr" frames together, instead of flahsing heaps of them really relly fast, so personally, anything faster then 5ms is overkill. only reasoni gotthe dell over the two of them is ebcause you can't use 2 monitors in 1 game in crossfire wiht the game spanned over the monitors
LoL, montitor is a hard decision to make. At work, we have about 5 of the Acer monitor you are looking at, they are really solid. The only viewsonic we have is for our CFO (like this one: http://images.techtree.com/ttimages/story/3596_rw_viewsonicvx912_full.jpg) and I don't like it honestly. The picture on it is good, but the stand is kinda shabby. When put together, the screen sits crooked slightly in comparison to the stand. It isn't bad, it just bugs me. LoL... Don't know if that helps or not.
P.S.- I am sure both would be fine, so, based on that assumption, I would go Acer.
I have this viewsonic. It works well for normal work and is decent for gaming. Have had zero issues with it to date. I did however switch to the HP 2207w for my newest build(under construction) Far superior IMO
After a ton of research on both monitors/reviews (omg my eyes are bleeding from reading about the same couple of monitors..) The Viewsonic seems like the best bet for me. I've used Viewsonic monitors in the past and trust them as a good brand for screens. The stats were a tad bit better than the Acer as well. I did hear about the cheap stand, but I actually might get an arm for it anyway, we shall see.
Thanks for the help, in the end I guess going with my gut was the best thing. Always seems to work out for me there
Well, I'm using it right now to type this message!
It's pretty amazing! Great quality and definately was well worth the investment thus far. No Dead Pixels either! Which is absolutely perfect!
The only lame thing was having to order the DVI cable seperately, but not really a big deal. It came a day later. The VGA had a little ghosting issues for gaming, but the DVI is just pure silk! Bright and Vibrant!
