I could be wrong, but the website would lead me to believe that one is 2 inches bigger than the other, haha, they don't look any bigger because the image sizes are the same, doesn't mean the scale is the same.

If you want to get the feel of 20-22", just measure it out with a tape measure....diagonally. As for choosing between the two, it's a matter if you're willing to spend more, for a bigger screen.

This is a better 22" 2ms screen, IMO:

22" is the perfect size IMO. I love my Sceptre 22". Compatible with all TV resolutions and even has a HDMI input. Plug in a Xbox 360 or PS3.

Yea...22" is perfect for gaming and movies. I would prefer 24", but I don't have the green for that.

Huge price jump after 22". Not worth it IMO, but any bigger then 22" is too big for a desk I think.

You would notice a 1 inch difference, 2 inches you would definitly notice. (think about those old 15inch monitors compared to a 17 inch)

I went from an old 15" 25ms Emachine monitor. To my current Sceptre 22" monitor. It was a huge difference.
