That Acer deal is very nice. Or this Samsung 216BW. Has a better contrast ratio, than the Acer.

motoxer4533 beat me to it...

It so happens that I am looking at these same LCDs and trying to decide on one.

The Acer AL 2223w has 800/1 contrast ratio, 5ms response time at $249.

The Samsung 216BW is 1000/1 and 5ms at $259.

the Viewsonic Q22wb is 900/1, 5ms at $239. (with no DVI cord)


Does one manufacturer or LCD have a better reputation?
With the higher contrast ratio should the Samsung give a better picture?

Thanks

Samsung is the one to go for. Better contrast, and better quality overall. Samsung has a higher reputation too.

See, here at TF we work as a team... Let me explain.

I offered a monitor suggestion (see my above post)

then, b1apl will go more in depth as to why that monitor is the best choice.

See, its simple, and fun!

Lol... but the Samsung is the best of the three choices... Like the saying goes, "you get what you pay for"

I have not heard of them but I see that the Hanns-G has a 79% excellent rating. It also has 5ms and 1000/1 for the same price.

Are they a well known company?
