Im about to build a computer and i was considering the samsung 226bw 22" monitor but then i came accross the Acer P241W 24" monitor that looked very nice. Both of the monitors have 3000:1 contrast and 2ms response so the only difference is size and brand (that i can see from specs). Has anyone heard anything about that Acer monitor? I like the size of the acer 24" with the 1920 x 1200 res and the price tag is only $400 which is probably the most i am willing to spend becuase I am on a tight budget. Is there any monitor that you guys like? Thanks for the help.

I just picked up the Samsugn 206BW from circiut city, for $279, and love it, only 20 inch and resolution is 1680x1050, but i am extremely happy, in games it looks awseome, movies are great too and reading text very easy on the eyes

i did not go with samusng 22 inch because the dot pitch is higher plus it same resolution

I really like bigger monitors so I will probably be going with a 22" or bigger. But thanks for the input.

I have that exact Acer model LCD screen. There are people out there that say that there are better LCD screens, but at that price point for 24" and 1920x1200, I'd like to see you find a better monitor for less than $400. This thing is awesome. If you play games, you will love this monitor. ;)

I have the Acer X241W 24in ... not sure what the real difference is between the P241W, all I know is mine is 5ms instead of 2ms as you say... but it works great. I got mine for $300 after rebate so I guess you are paying more for the faster response time. All in all though I love this monitor. Looks great in games and has great quality IMO. For the price you are not going to find a better 24in monitor. Also worth noting is I think Acer has a 3 year warrenty on thier LCD's... most I know of only have a year. :)

Thanks guys for the Acer recommendations. I will highly consider that monitor. Do you know any place that sells it for less than $400?
