I'm going to wait until the end of this year. Prices on LCDs are supposed to drop like rocks due to new NED and SED technology.

LCD prices have been supposedly dropping for the last 6 years. Dont hold your breath even with replacement technology.

I agree. I wouldn't buy a dull anyway.

Here is a 20.1" with speaker, better responce time and contrast ratio, cheaper.

Yeah, they've dropped, but they haven't dropped enough for me. I gotta get rid of this shitass 17" CRT though. It doesn't work well with XP and fucking turns off constantly with username changes and such. Plus the driver/support for it is lost without hope.

They've got the 19" ultrasharp on sale for like ~$250-270. I'd love to get that if I had the money

AbecX, i'm not really worried if LCD's drop or not, if they do then i'll have a merry christmas, if not well considering 6 years ago LCD's cost what...a couple grand.

I got a question. When playing games on a widescreen monitor will It look stretched out and stupid?

It shouldn't. Most games have the aspect ratio changing as part of their options. And if they don't, the monitor itself, should be able to change ratio. You'll just have the black bars on the sides... sort of like how you have them on the top and bottom of widescreen movies on a 4:3 screen.

Yeah I was hoping that the black bars would be on the side. I think the main worry would be older games.

Damn you Cruz for posting that deal.

Couldn't pass up the Dell at the discounted price.. Can't wait for it to arrive. Googled it and found a head to head with the Apple cinema of the same size. Dell scored very well (they both use the same LCD) and the Dell advertises a 12ms respone.. Response was my only concern, and I think that will do quite well, thank you very much...

It arrived yesterday.. and i love it. compared it to a friend who has widescreen and it affirmed my decision to do the normal monitor. I really dont like the way the wide screen makes 90% of apps and games look.

Mine arrived today.. Amazing difference over the Samsung 17" CRT I had before.. Crisper, brighter, and hell, the gaming experience just took a huge leap forward.. COD and F1C are entirely new games for me..

Thanks, Cruz.

yea, but in the next few years or so i bet 90% of the games and apps have a wide screen feature..in cs:s you can actually see more side to side, dunno if you play it or not but its pretty neat. i bet with the next windows they have a widescreen option.

Maybe no tho, im wrong alot.

1987 Nissan pick up-wrecked
1984 Ponitiac grand am-sold
1988 Buick lasabre-sold
1987 Nissan 300zx-sold intake/exhaust
2001 Yamaha r6-sold slip on
2004 Yamaha r1-sold full exhaust
1991 Nissan 240sx-torn down,almost built up.
1994 toyota celica-blown up. exhaust
2005 Honda accord-daily.

bottom line is i looked at both and didnt like the widescreen. if someone gave me the widescreen .. i would use it, but since i forked out the cash, i bought the one i liked better.
