I just got a HD2200 monitor in, my old monitor was a MAG '17'" inch.
I went from 1300x768 to 1680x1050.
The reviews for it were good besides color accuracy, but i have to say its quite good, I suspect later models had more accurate color because I have no problem with it (and im quite picky.) Its huge, I love it.
