  1. I'm about to get a new monitor to replace my 15 inch piece of junk, and i'm looking at these two.

    I will be buying from tiger direct, because i have 50 bucks off my next purchase there. I am leaning toward the viewsonic, because of the higher resolution, and also it has a 30 dollar rebate, but the acer is a little bigger, and my friend has one, so i know the picture is pretty good. Any suggestions would be great, and thanks in advanced.

    The Viewsonic is the way to go... I just love my Samsung SyncMaster 245bw ;)

    I personally favor Samsung monitors. If I need a cheap-ish LCD that will perform very nicely, I trust Samsung to deliver on that. If you can find one for around the price of those screens, you won't be disappointed (unless you get one of those new-ish ones with the wobbly base :().

    One thing about the ViewSonic... you will absolutely HATE the blur caused by their "dynamic contrast ratio" feature. In games, in movies... it's just ugly.

    I got rid of my VS monitor because of it and went with an AOC 2230FA (22").

    Good luck on your purchase. :)
