From reviews and comments, the 226BW is an outstanding monitor.

However... 24 inches is better than 22. Depending on the stats, the Acer could easily be a better choice.

good point. id go with the acer just for the 1920x1200.
if your going to compare it with the samsung 245b id pick that.

i'm madly in love w/ my acer monitor.... 3000:1 dynamic contrast ratio is amazing.. colors are very vibrant and what can you oppose at 24 inches!!!

but again.. depends on the model of acer.. there is a 24 inch that is only something like 700:1 ratio

and not to mention my monitor has several color option profiles.. and even customizable profiles

I have my acer set to 0 brightness because its so freaking bright. One thing to remember is that 1920x1200 requires a lot more graphics power than 1680x1050.
