Lightbulb Monitor Advice

Is this a good monitor to get? I thought it was a **** good price for a 19" monitor with an 8ms response time and 700:1 contrast ratio. Am I right or wrong?

Acer AL1916Ab Black 19" LCD Monitor - $216.31 with shipping

price here:

Seems like it should be a pretty good monitor to get. Google some reviews for it and see what other people who have bought it say about it. Based on their reviews decided if you think it's good enough or not.

And see if it will work with the graphics card, it might not handle something that big.

Compatibility shouldn't be a problem as my graphics card can handle 2048x1536 resolution
