theres the Viewsonic 1930WM which you can get it for around 11.7k i think. how much you getting the Samsung 940NW for?both these monitors are equally good, the only difference being the Viewsonic 1930WM has also has a DVI-D input while the Samsung 940NW does not.any of these monitors are trully worth buying mate. :thumbsup:personal suggestion is go for the viewsonic. but you may not like the bulge it has at the bottom (have heard this from a few people).DVI-D looks better provided you have graphic card good enough.otherwise i think the samsung is also a good buy.

I use a Viewsonic vg 2021m (_not_wide) and I'm quite happy with it. I have an nvidia 6150 onboard, so I hook up the DVI. On the analog, I've connected an external TV Tuner box;)At work I use a 940 NW. Like viral said, lack of DVI could be a limitation in this day and age but nevertheless it seems to do its job. The other thing worth noting is that the resolution on these wide monitors can never be higher than 1440 x 900, whcih can be a pain depending on your usage... That apart, I think it's worth a buy.:thumb:

Couldn't see what the link points to. It says session has expired. In general I've seen Dell monitors have higher native resolution than the other ones. Whether they are value for money is yet to be seen. Thats an RGB port and s-Video, from top.

Hmmm... Warranty is a purely individual preference(I'm more risk seeking so settle for a lesser warranty) but that apart, this monitor has all the bells and whistles I would say. What's more, it is DVI/HDCP enabled, so go for it:thumbsup::thumbsup:And don't forget to bargain with the Dell guy. I've seen people getting around 10% knocked off the listed price.
