or this one:

if link doesnt work, here's one that should work

http://www.techbargains.com/news_displayItem.cfm/224613

I just cant decide between the two! The Asus has 20000:1 (ASCR) but I heard it's an overbloated number. The Planar seems to show a more honest spec: 1200:1 vs the 1000:1 for Asus

Both monitors have a VESA mount, which is an absolute must for me. The planar is much bigger, which is nice, but if the Asus is better overall, I will off course go for that.

Please help.

Your links are broken. I'm a fan of ASUS monitors though, but working links might sway that opinion.

Well, the Dell one still doesn't work. But I would definitely recommend that ASUS one, especially since it's on a pretty damn cheap sale. I'd grab it now if I were you.

Even if it did work, I'm almost certain that I would recommend the ASUS over it strictly because the ASUS is a pretty good monitor at an awesome price.

Class is about to start for me. Maybe I can check it out later on. But don't blink on that ASUS!

I vote for the Asus too, more connection options and higher resolution, and 25.5 is big enough unless you going to be sitting 6 feet from it.
