If youre a gamer, definitely do not get a Widescreen. I've heard it distrorts the picture quite a bit.
I'd get if a ViewSonic if I were you. If you buy from an asian company like Rosewill or Hyundai calling for customer service will be ****. I'm not sure where ViewSonic is based out of, but I do know their customer service agents actually speak proper english.
I have the VA912b and I'm super happy with it. It was 280ish. The monitor Talldude suggested, Q9b-2, isnt bad either.
Best advice is to go with any ViewSonic; you cant go wrong!
