been living with my rusty trusty viewsonic 17" trinitron crt, but it's finally starting to show it's age (either that or my eyes are starting to show theirs...)

and looking to upgrade. the rest of the sytem's more than up to spec as the HD took a dump last fall finally forcing me to upgrade. The base system's a quad core zeon and I'm using a Nvidia Quadro Fx3700 card.

now - it's time to move out of the CRT technology. I'm getting into the deep pile of LCD panel types (more than I ever wanted to know - whatever happened to the choice between trinitron and everything else???) and am being led to believe that this is a pretty stellar unit especially for the price. talked to dell and I can get it for $200 shipped.

anyone know of/use this panel, or know of a better value? I'm liking the price, but I've got the budget to creep into the mid $300 area, but that's tops.

I've heard of it, but thought it was just another "urban myth"...

Just kidding! ;)

My opinion is... You'd really have to go up to the $400 USD range to find something significantly better than the Dell 2209WA. But-- If you can afford a monitor in the $400 range, it's a very easy psychological step up to $600 for a complete integrated monitor/calibration solution, the NEC P221W with Spectraview II calibration software/hardware.
