Default 19" lcd monitor ?

http://www.geeks.com/details.asp?invtid=LM19T-B&cat=MON

Is that a good monitor for gaming?

I know its not as good as my other 2 19" lcd's. because the contrast and other stuff is lower than the 2 i have now.

Just wondering if its a good monitor?

Sounds like a "pig in a poke" to me. If you don't know what that means... you're buying blind, taking their word for it.

For that price I'd look elsewhere. Too many maybes.

i just bought a 19' dell monitor for 200 and am pleasantly surprised with it. I would def recommend it for a high quality inexpensive monitor , i also own a mag inivsion 19" lcd and the dell is much better(payed about 300 for the mag)

I've not heard of Blueksy before, but regardless the monitor's specs aren't soo good. 550:1 contrast ratio is about average, 8ms is the minimum for a smooth gaming experience (so that's okay at least), and 270 nits for brightness is a little dark for my tastes. Besides, you can't see it yourself to judge the color quality and only a little bit more will get you a much nicer monitor.

I got a samsung 19" lcd at staples for $250 but it was like $260 something with tax.

This monitor is sick but it didn't come with the dvi cable but it is dvi.

It has 8ms and 700;00 contrast or whatever.

I like this monitor better than my other 2 19" lcd's.

I just had to get some speakers hooked up to it.

there is the link. It says 3 year warranty so does that mean that i got a 3 year warranty when i got it in the store?
