    If you have one of these, is there any backlight bleed? Do they connect play alright with our Macs?

    I'm amazed that you asked this question, I'm looking at the exact same two monitors and trying to decide between them. Thanks for asking!

    I bought a 21.5 inch Acer that is nice but it has a fair amount of backlight bleed. I thought I could live with it but now I am thinking not so much. Time for a new monitor.

    The Dell has a slightly higher Dot Pitch .276 vs .249, not sure if its even a noticeable difference, both are 1080P

    I just bought the Samsung one and am using it on my Powerbook this very second!

    I've only been using it for one full day so far but I'm impressed with it's build quality.



    Now that I'm checking for it, there does seem to be a little bit of bleeding on the right side of the monitor but I couldn't noticed it until I put a pure black .png full screen on the display and even then it wasn't that bad.
