Please note that I HATE monitors with that shiny screen coating where when the screen is black you can see your own reflection. I also want a thin frame and no speakers. Acer X221W Acer AL2216WBD. Acer [SIZE=-1]AL2223WD (wtf they make three?)[/SIZE] Samsung 225BW Samsung 226BW (altho I saw this one and it's kinda fugly altho supposedly it performs much better than the 225BW that it replaced) The Dell one that is $297 right now (I've heard some not-so-good thinigs about this one) I already have two 17" LCDs and I'm getting this one for two main purposes: watching movies/tv (tv card) and making bigger stock charts. Right now I only have two video outputs so I'll use it with one 17" LCD but eventually I want another vid card so I can have three monitors. I assume that movies I've downloaded that are in widescreen format that I play in WMPlayer will pretty much fill up a 22" widescreen monitor, right? Ideally I would like to keep the price as close to $300 as I can. I've seen most of these in person in the store, but I haven't seen some of them at their native resolutions because they were hooked up to computers in parallel where the main monitor was 4:3 so the image was stretched and you couldn't adjust it in display properties. So please post your experience with any of the above monitors, or suggest alternatives. I trust OT more than circuitcity.com's reviews or whatever.
