At first I wanted to buy the IBM C220p 22" CRT.. But they no longer sell them where I live.. Well maybe time for a TFT then..
The Apple Cinema Display 20" or 23"? what works best?
Anybody here got this panel? Dose it work on a PC?(PC user) They are very expensive so I was intrested in buying the cheaper 20" but dont know if and how the games will support the 1680x1050 res....(how will Battlefield 2 play on it?)

Well lets say this .. I'm looking for a monitor that I can play games, watch movies and use graphic applications.. (like Photoshop) So "YES" I need that +20" size and 16,7m colors ..

Any info is welcome! -Konrad

Do you not like the Dell 2450 24" widescreen LCD? It is cheaper and specs look better, IMO...

Sounds nice! Yea and its alot cheaper! Thanks for the info..(didin't know.. this may be my next monitor.. But I still wonder how FPS games like Battlefield 2 will play on it? any ghosting? and how will the game look on it? I dont think many games support the widescreen res of 1920x1200..

And a last thing.. whats dell Dead-pixel policy? this screen has so many pixels.. so many things that can go wrong :p  J/K

Not sure of Dells dead pixel policy. Dhuckle has a 20" and 24" widescreen and has zero dead pixels.

Regardless of their policy, someone posted that you can RMA it with even one dead pixel and get them to replace it till it is right. Don't have any proof this is true, tho.

I exchanged a 2005fpw by emailing them and complaining about the backlight and dead/on pixels. No questions asked, I got a new one that was perfect. Gave it to my brother. You have 21 days though.

You must be lucky because over in the United States, Dell's pixel policy (from their website) is replace only if there are more that 6 fixed pixels. Apple's is even worse, since they still go by the ISO 13406-2 standard. This means that their 20" allows up to 3 bright whole pixels, 3 dark whole pixels, and 8 sub-pixel defects, while their 23" allows up to 4 bright whole pixels, 4 dark whole pixels, and 11 sub-pixel defects. Obviously, for both, their customer service takes over long before those limits are reached. But that's what they officially say their policy is in the United States.

So hope you got that 0 dead pixel thing in writing, or know when it expires. Heh. Dell from what I heard does have a pretty good return policy if you do it within a couple of weeks of getting the monitor, though.
