I would go with the hanns, 5ms is good enough and you wont see any ghosting.

its just two 60mhz chips side by side to simulate it.. you know like the samsung tv's that give the crazy movements and whatnot
think i learnt that in media, by doubling the hertz, it increases the fields of the signal, which makes it look smoother when really its just duplicated frames played faster.

I just found a similar one with over 1700 reviews and 5 stars. Anyone got anything against this monitor? seems like a better bang for the buck than the hanns, but once again I have never bought a monitor before.

Acer AL2216Wbd Black 22" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor with HDCP support 300 cd/m2 700:1 - Retail

Newegg.com - Acer AL2216Wbd Black 22" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor with HDCP support 300 cd/m2 700:1 - LCD Monitors

If anyone got time, can you explain to me the contrast ratio? (no clue what that is)
And its 1000:1 and 700:1 HUGE difference?

i have a samsung 226BW with 3000:1 contrast ratio and 2ms response time colors are very very good, when i bought this it was side by side with benq HP and acer , and seeing samsung's display just blow me away, it just my thought tho.....

I use a 22" Dell and it's great, No dead pixels, shipping box is great for taking it to lans.

Bought the nicer tilt/rotate/height/angle stand on ebay and the mounting on the back is universal dell so it's awesome for that reason alone. I paid $311 shipped for it about 2 years ago...

Is it worth it buying a used monitor? I can get 30 bucks savings at max, and not sure if its worth the risk.

Also, still looking for the ratio contrast question?

Anyone know if Acer has a no dead pixel policy?

Most companies do not offer a dead pixel policy.

If you are really worried, buy from Brick and Mortar store and if it has any return it. Most online stores will not accept that as a reason for return unless it has something like 7 or more.
