Well, I have had a 19" Sony E400 Trinitron Monitor and it was one of the best CRT's that I have ever seen, but I hooked up my Acer AL2223W 22" widescreen and HOLY SHIT!!! This is a very nice quality monitor, I am still freaking out about how big it is. Games are like nothing I have ever played before, the widescreen gives so much more room. Absolutely impressive, plus no ghosting due to the low ms response time. Just WOW.
