    Have: Dell 2208WFP Ultrasharp

    Need: 22" or 24" of higher quality that won't break the bank.

    No need to recommend the Samsung 245BW or 226BW, had them and wasn't impressed.
    I know the Dell is already one of the better 22 inchers but I have the opportunity to upgrade right now.

    Thanks guys, I know there's at least a couple of you here that really know your monitors ;)

    thanks for the input guys but I'm pretty sure any of those would be a downgrade from the Dell :(

    I have to tell you, you have very good taste! The Dell Ultra sharp is quite impressive and has a decent price tag for what you get. See HERE. Also, don't know if you're a student or not, but Dell typically gives a 12-15% discount to students.

    thanks, and yep that's the one I have, and I believe I got 15% off when I purchased, if not 20% because I have a business account with them

    :banghead: I knew that! :banghead: I just re-read your post lol! IMO, you've got a beauty! What do you consider "breaking the bank". (What range?) Have you considered simply moving up to the 24" Dell Ultra? <Here> Hard to beat that product line dollar for dollar for what you get, and it's proven. Now, if you've got a couple of grand, the Digital tiger is sweet!:)

    LG L227WT much better than the Acer for gaming only a couple stores in America sell this model and you haven't tried the Samsung 245B (not in America)
