OK, due to a recent move I have to get rid of my old 22" CRT monitor and go with an LCD due to space constraints. Does anyone have the LG in my subject title , or at least know of it?? I've read a couple of things and it seems to be a good monitor, but I want to hear from all of you knowledgeable people. And I'd like to hear fairly quickly, so I can run down to Best Buy and pick one up. Unfortunately I'd rather not wait and get it through NewEgg (which is where I buy all my stuff normally), as I'm kinda of in a hurry. I'm trying to get settled in due to a recent sudden upheaval in my personal life ( read "woman"), and the quicker I can get back to a sense of normalcy the better. In other circumstances I'd probably spend a few days researching on my own, but if you guys can help out that would make at least one thing easier on me.

Thanks in advance!

Instead of LG, I would look into ViewSonic 22" or the Acer 22".

I have that monitor and it is very good. It has a great contrast ratio and 2M which is great for gaming. The picture is great and mien has no dead pixels. It has a VGA and a DVI connection and has HDCP. I am very happy with thsi monitor and I think you will be too. It's on sale now for $379.99 at Best Buy. I bought mine last week when it was $400 and I got my $20 back today. I recommend this monitor.

get a viewsonic, i have a 19 inch widescreen from them (vx1935wm) and it owns. its much better than my 19 inch flatron LG even tho the lg was much more expensive. look into the X series and see if there are any good 22 inchers that interest u.

OK, so now it looks like I'm going to have to order from Newegg after all. Best Buy doesn't seem to have any Veiwsonics or Acers listed, at least not 22" widescreen. So any recomendations off of Newegg? I'd prefer to stay with the 22" widescreen, unless there's a good reason not to go widescreen. But if I remember some of the previous posts on here quite a few people were swearing it was the way to go.

I have a 19 Inch LG and its great I suppose a 22 inch widescreen would be even better.

Never buy a monitor from Bestbuy. Newegg rocks for LCD Monitors, Look up some ViewSonic Monitors off of newegg.
