I bought a Viewsonic VX924 with 4ms response time, 500:1 contrast. /camera-salvage-pro-for-mac/. And I love it. I would hardly consider Viewsonic to be lesser than a Dell, personally I don't like the Dell's at all. If you are at all into games then the VX924 is where it is at. But a buddy of mine does pro-graphics and says that nothing beats his Apple 23' Cinema for still graphics and range of colour. It got mine from $500 canadian a few months back so you should be able to find it for a good price back in the Old Country!
The Acer for the price is a great monitor. I bought one from Amazon for my spare mac mini and it's lovely. There's hardly any screen size difference between a 19' & 20' widescreen when you put the two together. Angel sanctuary for mac. Obviously resolution is less, but it's still very good and the quality of the signal htrough VGA surprised me. It was very good, not as good as a Dell 2005FPW through VGA but there's a big price difference there. I don't know whether I'd use it as my main monitor, but as a spare monitor its' perfect.

Click to expand.Hey, well spotted! I am in the same position and was planning to wait until Dell or Apple did a firesale to get rid of old models or wait for them to come down in price (I was particularly gutted to note that the US store has 45% discount on refurbished 20' and 24' monitors). I even considered buying two unbranded 17' but no-one does a USB video card for Mac yet (I have a mini). After some research inspired by your post, I also found the I like the look of this better than the ViewSonic and it has DVI. Anyone had good/bad experiences with the W19-1? I assume that Acer doesn't do a 19' widescreen with DVI.
I couldn't find such a model. Click to expand.man, you know a scary amount about me pretty good memory on you tho, and i apreaciate the help, so thanks I think it'd b silly not to get a screen that supports DVI in, and thanx alot to MDavey for bringing that Fujitsu-Siemens W19-1 to my attention. Not a screen i'd seen before, but at only £220, it now head to head with the ViewSonic. (it looks well nicer tho) All 3 of the monitors mentioned in this thread have the same specs: 8ms video response, 300 cd/m² of brightness, 500:1 contrast ratio. Does anyone else think that cos the prices are so similar, all 3 of them have the same pannel in them?
Click to expand.No, there appears to be at least two different panels. The Acer supports 8bit per channel colour (giving 16,7M colours) but doesn't have a DVI input. I'm guessing this is the Samsung LTM190M2 panel. Fujitsu-Siemens W19-1, Westinghouse LCM-19w4, Hannstar HU191 and Polyview V398 are all 6bit per channel colour (giving 16,2M colours after dithering). I'm guessing that they all use the Chi Mei Optoelectronics M190A1 (Wide). The AG-Neovo CW-19 could be using either panel.
Some sites say that the CW-19 is 6bit, while others say it is 8bit. Either way, the CW-19 does not have DVI.

Most people can't tell the difference between 6bit dithered and 8bit, but some say that near-blacks aren't distinctive (so watching, say, The X-Files isn't so enjoyable as shadows look like a solid block of black) and reds and blues lack definition.
Others say that they notice the dithering and it looks like an analog video signal rather than digital when using DVI.
