I was thinking of upgrading to an lcd...when my CRT, dies. If they have led backlit ones that are affordable. If not I still have another enormous 20" CRT, in the box.

DELL sucks, they overcharge on everything they sell. I bet this monitor isn't even worth $500 let alone 1,200.

hehe
sure I know what I'm missing out on, I have a good ability to hold off when I have hardware that still works

i normally don't replace things to go faster like almost all of you guys...only when they die

Is that really Dell or have they bought it from someone and stamped DELL on it?

This would be a sick dual display for my rig. I'll have to ask santa. Heck, don't think he could afford it.

wait so they took a normal monitor, slapped on a piece of plexiglass with some speakers in it, and marked it up 250%? No thanks...
