Get real. Most smaller, 22" and below use TN 6 bit panels. It's what my 226BW has and the image is excellent, no tearing in games etc.

If you need perfectly exact color reproduction then this wont do it, but for the average enthusiast and gamer they are just fine.

breathemetal, if I were you I would lookup what Best Buy has (or competitor) and find out what panels they use. Go in store and see if the image quality of a TN is acceptable to you. If the color, black level, and viewing angle are acceptable to you, then go ahead and buy a cheap monitor. I'm very, very picky, and some others aren't picky at all. You should really evaluate it yourself. I've been searching for the "perfect" LCD for years and still haven't found it. I guess that's why I'm still running 2 19" Samsung CRTS.

I agree. At the very worst you have 30 days to get your cash back. Buy it and let us know how you like it!

Yeah that is true. I guess i could buy the Dell, compare it with the Viewsonic, and if i like it, i'll keep it. If not, I can send it back and try another.

Exactly, in fact I went from an 8bit 19" dell monitor to a 6bit 22" dell monitor and the 6bit 22incher looks just as good as the 8bit panel did imo.

Also no noticeable back light bleeding and I even have the brightness turned up a pretty fair amount.
