Do you mean 1680 x 1050? If so, then yes...

i heard that sceptre isn't that good. i read that it gets alot of dead pixels. i was looking at that one, but read other forums about how bad it is.

I'm not a big Sceptre fan either, I've heard to many bad things about them. I can't help but wonder why the Sceptre uses over twice the amount of power that the Viewsonic does and weighs almost twice as much... The monitor I posted is on neweggs best selling list right now.

I have a Sceptre 22", and it's awesome. No problems what so ever. I guess I got lucky.

On a side note, neither of those monitors are cheaper since the Viewsonic has free shipping.

Edit: NVM the Sceptre is still like 6 bucks cheaper... poop
