Default Monitor deals...

I found 2 decent deals and I was wondering which one I should go for... I don't know a WHOLE lot about monitors... But i kind of want one fast and cheap but good and no problems

I could very well buy this RIGHT when I get home, if the deals are still there.

Woot : One Day, One Deal (SM)
Woots got a deal today that I could take advantage of, if you think that is a good price.

10,000:1 is good right? I only would need to buy some dvi cables...


And here is the other deal
22" Widescreen LCD Monitor w/Cam - eBay (item 110273074661 end time Jul-29-08 00:36:55 PDT)
I could get it for around $130 including shipping if i take advantage of some of these deals that this guy talks about...
XtremeSystems Forums

OOOO... which one?!?! Or none??

The link to the first monitor says server busy, but i can almost guarantee you the 10,000:1 contrast ratio is dynamic. You want to look at the static contrast ratio. No one uses dynamic, it changes the screen brightness in dark or light backgrounds to get that ratio.

I might go for the 2nd one cause its SO **** cheap... a lot of XS members are going for it. Is there anything wrong with that 2nd one?

Default Re: Monitor deals...

We use viewsonics here at work and the quality of the panel has really gone down lately. I have 2 20's on my desk, and the one i have had for about 4 months is already significantly dimmer than the one i just added last week.

The woot monitor is sold out btw.

Personally, i'm not loyal to any brand or company. I bought my Soyo because it was the best priced MVA panel i could find. Anyone who tells you that a 6ms monitor is going to ghost is smoking the pipe. TN panels = crap after you have stared at a MVA panel. I really wish i could get my hands on a 2nd Soyo.
