I see the difference now. I hope that the DVI problem that many people have on the Gamer version is not indicative of a problem with this model.

Finally the first Newegg review...

Reviewed By: kineticbuddy on 4/16/2007 Tech Level: somewhat high - Ownership: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: very nice, cheap 22' monitor. good response, and even if it had 5ms - its cheaper then most 22' - great picture and overall really great product and it allows you to customize overdrive percentage

Cons: only ships with VGA cable and only allows auto adjust from vga

Other Thoughts: I am running SLi BFG 8800 gtx OC. I also have a 22' asus with same spec and they look the same, expect the sceptre and not quite as wide- more high by little difference

What do you mean by "only allows auto adjust from vga"?

wow...they restocked it fast. A few days ago, I saw it out of stock.

Mine just arrived! Here are some pics:





It's just amazing. Can't wait to pick up another one. Picture is clear, colors are great, no problems here. My eyes feel weird though. Maybe I'm just to CRTs. I'm just happy I don't have 60lb monitors on my desk anymore. I was surprised Oblivion ran pretty good on 1680x1050, with settings maxed........indoors...lol.
