Did you compare the Acer 20 display to the Apple 20 Display? The Apple one just blow the Acer away. There's a good reason the Apple one is a lot more expensive. I saw the Acer one on display and the picture is wash off, texts wasn't crisp and clear, brightness was bad compare to the Apple. And the Apple one is High Difnition, better outside rim, only 1 inch. Not to mention the silver shiny look and overall the design is so much better.Phil9579 said:What makes Apple displays so much more expensive then other ones? I can get an Acer 20" for $279, yet the Apple 20" is $699. What gives?
Wow... I only ever turn brightness down on my notebook (for battery life), but I did not know this. Interesting. Thank you for pointing it out.FwyWarrior said:All of the other monitors I've seen, Dell, Acer, Samsung, don't control brightness in this way. They adjust it by altering the signal itself, leaving the backlight at full brightness
Part of the cost is the type of LCD panel in the display. Apple uses a panel that is more expensive than the acerPhil9579 said:What makes Apple displays so much more expensive then other ones? I can get an Acer 20" for $279, yet the Apple 20" is $699. What gives?
I've been very happy with my viewsonic VX2025vm for photo editingPhil9579 said:I wish I could get the Apple 20" but its simply out of my price range. Do you think buying a used one, like on ebay or amazon could be a good idea?
Also, what other brands of 20" widescreen displays would you reccomend? I'm looking to buy one in the future.

1. If I wanted to, could I use this as a TV in the future?
2. Is the sound bar any good? As anybody had experience with it?
