This one doesn't look too bad....


I have this one and LOVE it... but the first one I got had one dead pixel (I was able to take it back because I bought it at a local store that had a liberal return policy.... the second one was perfect).


I would definately go with widescreen... but that's just my personal preference.

this is my 19 inch monitor and it really is great. i mostly use my system for gaming and other basic things and i couldn't be happier.

the samsung you have picked out looks pretty rockin too, the contrast ration is higher on the samsung. i actually thought about getting that one, but i didn't like the stand (slave to appearence haha)
