22" LCD Monitor

OK, so After reading the 22" Monitor Round-up. It's inspired me to sell my 19 inch and get another 22. and that way I'll also have matching 22's. probably can't get the same monitor. but another 22 would look better than having a 22 widescreen. and a normal 19.

So, what do you guys recommend for a decent, but cheaper cuz will be my second monitor, for a 22 Inch LCD. preferably a 22 inch Widescreen.

I can get a 1 month old used VIEWSONIC MODEL VA2226W from a guy down the street for $180 USD. how does that sound?

Any suggestions would be appreciated. I want a good monitor with a 5 or 2ms response time also.

Thanks, Cheers!

Well, to late. I got myself a new monitor. :)

I had a 22 and a 19. I sold the 19 and now I have two 22 inch Samsung's

Originally I had the Samsung 226BW. one of the best out. and now I have that, and the Samsung 2253BW. it's big brother. they are both 22's and both have a 2ms response time. So i'm exited. Personally I think the newer 2253BW has a better picture and just plain looks better, Like More realistic. Here's a picture.

Ya so the left side is the new 2253BW it looks smaller but it's cuz it's on an angle. oh and does anyone have some good idea's on how to position these on my desk? I'm not sure if going to leave it this way. as the left side used to have my other speaker there, now there is no room. let me know what you guys think

I'm planning on mounting my monitors like this guy has

Should save plenty of space.

ya thats pretty badass.. I did a little re arranging today. not sure if I'm going to keep it this way, but I moved my Bose Sub off the carpet and on the desk. Here's a picture. I'm still getting used to the second monitor on the right instead of the left. I struggle with change. So we'll see. lol. Hopefully I like it this way cuz it took way to long to change it all. Here's that picture of how i set it up tonight.
Let me know how that mounting goes. as I'm interesting in giving that a try.

I really like the look of your total set up. Colour coordinated and nice and tidy.

now I have display envy :(

Nice setup.

I just bought the kids one of the 22" Samsungs, which gives me 19" & a 17" dual displays. Far from ideal, but good enough for the spreadsheet work I'm doing...

I might finally be thinking of going LCD & this 2253BW looks the goods. I've got;
C2D E6420 @ 2800Mhz
8800GTS 312MB @ 550/810
2GB DDR667 @ 350Mhz

Just got to test out UT3 @ 1680 x 1050 (I usually run it @ ~1280x1200, without overclocking anything) & if it's ok (with above overclocks), i'll pick this baby up....unless there are other 22" LCDs I should be looking at???

I've been looking around & discovered another contender...Asus VW222U.

So it's down to the 2253BW (or 2253LW, if the BW isn't in stock at my local MSY/Centercom) or the Asus VW222U.

Can anyone vouch for the Asus?
