So I got a monitor for Christmas that I put on my list, sadly in my haste to make a list of things I didn't think I'd get, I didn't notice that this monitor doesn't even have a DVI input :S (Samsung 923NW for anyone interested) That and its native res is only 1440x900, quite a bit smaller real estate than I'm used to (1360x1024, yes 1360), so I'd really be sacrificing desktop space unless I felt like going well beyond it's native. That's where you all come in, should I return it and take a few bucks out of my pocket to get one that has a DVI and a higher res, or is the VGA going to look just as good as the DVI and the jump above it's native res not hurt the IQ all that much? I'm looking for either your knowledge in the matter, your opinion on it or both. As well as if you feel I should stay away from any of the following, and preferably why. From what I've been able to gather, Acer makes a darn decent LCD now, the Hanns line is quite a good buy and I've owned a Viewsonic CRT (traded it for this CRT actually) which was REALLY nice looking, and my parent's Viewsonic HDTV isn't too shabby either. The upgrade candidates are: Acer X203Wbd Black 20" 5ms (2500:1ACM, what's ACM mean?) ViewSonic VA2026W Black-Silver 20" 5ms Hanns·G Hi-221DPB Black 22" 5ms Acer X223Wbd Black 22" 5ms ASUS VW224U Black 22" 2ms(GTG) And the only 2 19" Candidates Acer X193W+BD Black 19" 5ms (Helluva price) ViewSonic X Series VX1962wm Black 19" 5ms, 2ms (GTG) (Not quite sure on what GTG means yet...) I'm currently using a Gateway VX1100 with a Mitsubishi Trinitron tube that was Remaned way back in 99 (had it since probably 2000) and is FINALLY starting to die. And still only then when it gets really warm, and only is unusably when it gets REALLY warm, so this thing is a damn trooper, I salute you Thanks all.
