I'd say no just because of its looks haha ; ;
NCIX.com - Buy BenQ FP241W 24IN Widescreen LCD Monitor Black 6MS 1920X1200 1080P 1000:1 500CDM VGA DVI-D HDMI Pivot - FP241W In Canada.
is the most recommended BenQ monitor and a couple hundred cheaper. its probably cheaper still on newegg, canadian prices suck.
edit~ id have linked newegg but had this in favorites.
