    Well I have an Acer 23" 2048x1152, which I loved, especially for the pixel pitch, size and resolution, as well as the stand. My work needs my monitor now so this is the perfect opportunity to "upgrade" or sidegrade. I find 21.5" ~ 24" much more than enough. My budget is 350$, hoping more in the 250$ range.

    I've seen the IPS226V-PN at 160$ at Microcenter, it interests me a lot and seems a very good buy. Is it OK to go with staying with 6 bit + AFRC? Are there any sub 350$ 8 bit monitors out there? Anything else I should consider?

    you guys think it would be better for me to keep the high res or switch to e-IPS? Viewing angles aren't very important for me, and I don't mind the power cost of CCFL

    I'm thinking IPS is the way to go

    If so, any alternatives to the ips226v-pn or it's 23" bigger brother?
