Before you order, check out PriceGrabber. Here's a link to monitors that are 19" w/ 8ms response time.
http://www.pricegrabber.com/search_a...=priceA/qlty=n

Click on the "Compare Prices -->" button beside any that looks interesting. Input your ZIP code to get shipping quotes added as well for the lowest total price.

thanx for replying everone

thanx Trotter, price grabber is very helpful

and could someone explain to me what some of the specs mean?

8ms = faster refresh, (no ghosting, etc..) is that right?

what about the xxx:1 (ex: 500:1) contrast ratio?

and anything else I didn't mention

here's what I've sumed it down to:


The specs look good (except It doesn't support DVI), also, I've never heard of this site - $245

So far, Still my favorite for the price and the reviews - $233 ($172 after rebait (I think it expired today though))

Good specs, but the reviews aren't that great - $255

Directron has been around awhile. And the difference between DVI and VGA is not enough to really see a major difference.

Yeah, the rebate expires today (4/16). Has the lowest contrast ratio.

Highest contrast ratio. Best pixel pitch.

I'd say the Tyris first, the Sceptre second.

yay!

I'll go with the tyris... would it be wise to wait a week or so and see if a new rebait comes up?


Edit:

weather a rebait comes up or not, it's down to this:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824224008

and does anyone know where I can get a cheap dvi cable? (all the ones at newegg were around $10-$15 with $5 shipping)
