get the dell....they are great monitors, with no artifacts or bad shading and hardly ever get dead pixels, they have great refresh rate too.

I think im going to get it the price is too good and free shipping. I use dell lcds at school and they look amasing to me and there analog only! The 20% off deal ends wednsday so im going to go for it.

I have the non-ultrasharp version of that screen and its fabulous, one of the nicest I've ever used. Enjoy it, it is simply superb, (as I believe that version just has DVI interface and height adjustment over mine!
