Seeing Wide

Acer 22\Today I bought an Acer 22″ Widescreen LCD display from Office Depot.  It was $300 but hopefully after rebate it will be $220 which seemed like a pretty good price.

I upgraded from my Dell 19″ to the Acer 22″ because I decided to use the Dell 19″ for my kids’ computer.

So far the Acer seems nice.  The reviews on Amazon were quite good and it’s rated about 4.5/5 stars.  There is this strange problem that when I come out of sleep on my ThinkPad T60p it only shows a part of the screen but I am hoping that is particular to the ThinkPad’s video drivers and not an issue with the monitor.

Part of me does wonder if I should get the HP W2408H 24″ Widescreen LCD Monitor.  24″ is not that much bigger than 22″ so but the HP seems so much more glossy and pretty.  What do you think?

Some reviews of this monitor.

These are the specifications of my current monitor, the Dell 1800FP.
