Samsung 206 or 204BW.


I have the 205bw which they don't sell on newegg any more, and it's by far the greatest monitor I have ever owned.

Samsung make some of the best monitors there are...but at their prices you could get a monitor that's still very good in the next size class such as a 22inch Acer.

it all depends on if he just thought that's all he could get for that much or he doesn't want too high RES. Samsung's monitors are amazing this is true but they are also 100 bucks more than say a still good monitor such as Hanns-G so it all depends on what he's looking for.

Although that's true, your paying for an excellent brand, (not bashing acer) and chances are the 22" will be 1650x1080 meaning everything will seem a little more Pixelated

You are paying for an excellent brand that looks beautiful but at that price it all comes down to the person, and if they want to pay 100 bucks extra for a monitor that wont really look THAT much better.

Ex. Hanns G 19inch $180 vs Samsung 19inch $270
