I did some of my own fiddling while I was there, basically running several monitors that I was considering through whatever automatic configurations they had. Even still, the NEC was best when I was done. Can't argue the age issue, though. Don't know how much that affects picture quality, save for giving people more time to mess with settings, meaning I might have missed some. I'm rather tempted to go pick one up and compare it to my CRT (since my video card has dual-monitor support).
