    Hey .Im thinking of upgrading from my shuttle lcd lite monitor to this one
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.asp?Item=N82E16824001081
    Is this monitor worth it or should i just keep this one.Nothing wrong with the 17 inch but i wanted a widescreen like this for a while but for this price the monitor seems too good to be true.

    I've heard good reviews from newegg, though I never bought anything from them.
    But hey, if you want the widescreen monitor, then you have the answer for yourself ;)
    If you have the cash and you will to have such screen (well, when I moved from a 15 inch to a 17 inch monitor I noticed an ENOURMOUS difference. should be the same with your 17-20 trade. maybe even better, we're talking about 3 inches now, not only 2 :) ) , why not buy it?
    Just make sure it's the best deal/price around and go for it, in my opinion.
    Hope it helps
    VG :eek:

    That price is definately true.

    I was at Sam's Club this past weekend, and I saw this exact monitor for that same price there. Nice monitor, swivel stand and everything. I'd say go for it.

    well personally, after using a WUXGA (1920x1200) on a 15.4" LCD, so I could never use anything less after it, which sucks cause that means I need a 23" or 24" LCD to get the same res, so like $800+ but I think its worth it if you can afford it, but obviously thats way mroe then you are looking to spend
