Weird. I think this is the first S-PVA I've seen in a 22". Every other 22" I've seen is Tn-Film. But, for that much money, I can grab a 24" with a panel every bit as good. Needs to come down about $100, I'd say.

16ms response time- ouch. not good for gaming then. I do like it's color accuracy, but that is about the only thing this has got going for it and it's definitely not worth $600+
