700:1 contrast ratio.

5ms response time

Reasonable price.


Any other ones I should look at?

The Samsung 205BW seems better than the BenQ FP202W, if you check the contrast ratio and response time for just $5 more.

I'm also in the market looking for a wide screen LCD, preferably a 19" but most of them are only 1440x900, so I'm thinking about getting a 20" with a higher resolution (1680x1050) now that I see how good they look.

I have my eye on that Samsung 205BW.

ya, thats a very nice monitor, i don't like the benq because of its crappy stand.. the samsung stand is telescope like.. which i love, so it can sit at eye level and i can place my center speaker there as well

Acer 22"

If you're not gonna spend more than $300, I say the Samsung 205BW is perfect.
