I am going to be building a new gaming pc this summer (mid to upder range running at least a 8800gts) and I found a great deal on the Acer AL2223Wd. I just wanna know if any one has experience with it

Newegg has it for $270ish, but Best Buy has it for $190 and I can get another 10% off with rewards making it around $170.

Any info, the faster the better, its on sale and I need to know if I should run and get it real quick.

Thanks!

Best Buy doesn't carry the 222wbd - that's exclusive to Newegg, and Newegg only. You can't buy that monitor ANYWHERE else - I've checked everywhere. You can't even find it on Acer's website. The specs are listed on Newegg - and as opposed to what another reviewer said, it has 1000:1 contrast ratio. And one review said it has Crystalbrite technology - the glossy finish screen (like the HP w2207).

In my mind, with free shipping, this is the best 22" monitor money can buy. I'm two seconds away from buying it right now.

Best Buy sell the Acer AL2223Wd monitor; at least on their website.

Acer AL2223Wd @ Best Buy - $190

The AL2223Wbd apparently supports HDCP while the AL2223Wd does not.

It's as good as it gets for the price you want to pay.
