mmmm i just read your review... i would say i think i might go with acer lcd. however i think that monitor are pretty much new so there isn't really any reviews of this but all newegg reviews says its good but not much detail.
Trust me, I would likely give Acer (and the Samsung) a similar review. They are both 3rd tier brand names and both monitors uses similar technologies. Samsung is not a 3rd tier brand name, but that doesn't mean type do not produce crappy monitors.
I'm pretty particular about monitors; visual quality and construction are at the top of the list. Price is secondary to me.
