    an "ergonomic" monitor. Maybe a keyboard or mouse...but a monitor?? I understand the tilt and height adjustment...but ergonomic?? Marketing at its finest. LMAO :roll:

    “With this line, government, education and corporate customers now have an affordable solution for displaying media.”

    "...and $319 for the VG2027wm."

    A 20" for $319??? Really affordable.

    Lowers brightness to 60%, wohoo :p Maybe it has some more clever stuff, but I bet that's part of it.

    Oh, my bad :p I read that wrong.

    The 20" and 22" are only differentiated by the model number. The 24" is slightly different.

    They look goon n all, but where is pivot??

    I refuse to exchange my 22" hp with pivot and i can even set the screen horizontally, for something with a plain fixed stand...

    Seems my only choice would be an 24" HP of the same model, but im really interested on a 16/9 screen instead of 16/10

    Woo, awesome. $300+ for cheap-ass TN panels in 16:9 instead of 16:10.

    First one has a matte base. Other two have a sort of low gloss sheen and this sort of "space" at the bottom of the support "beam" itself.
