Anyone ever used one of these?
My CRT is starting to have some strange issues so I guess I'm finally going to make the change to an LCD.
I've been waiting to find a good screen for a very good price and after reading a lot of reviews I think I may have found the screen for me. This Asus 24" was praised as a good $550 screen just last year... and now its around $250.

But before I buy anything I'd like to hear what you guys think.
Other reviews of this monitor...
My only concern is overall image quality. I don't really know what bad LCDs look like, and I'd rather not find out the hard way if this one isn't up to snuff.
