    I own the Gateway FHD2400, and it's great. Has VGA, DVI, Component, composite, and HDMI inputs. Are you in the US? If so, you can get it for $450.

    27.5" for $499 at COSTCO


    If you wanna SuperSize that, get the Hanns.G 27.5" from Costco.com for $499 this week (before 1/31)! Cheapest price, 1920x1200 rez, HUGE screen with HDMI, and with Costco's return policy you can always take it back WITHOUT A RESTOCK FEE.

    Or, Buy it from BestBuy this week for $550 - at least go to BB and take a look... :)

    It may be huge size wise, but it still has the same resolution as a 24 inch. Plus, I'd personally want a name brand over "Hanns G"

    Just ordered the Dell UltraSharp 2407FP 2407FPW-HC. They have $100 off until 1/31 ($599) . A couple of guys at work have ones a year or so old and love them, great reviews, have a number of hookups. They don't have HDMI though - probably wait a few months for that.

    I was lucky to snag a 24" Acer X24WSD for $230 at Best Buy. I don't think they carry it anymore.

    Thats precisely what I am going to use it for. I am a frequent user of tunes and I hope to be getting my mac pro set up in September. I can wait.

    I've been looking for another 24inch, preferably much cheaper than my current Dell was (@ $630).

    There is one problem people are omitting. All these sub $550 monitors are cheapo TN panels. Those might be fine in a 19 inch, but things get pretty fugly around 24inches where the larger size really shows the angle limitations. Being that I already own an S-PVA, its not something I can ignore like someone who only has worked on TNs.

    When you say angle limitations. generally I sit in front of the monitor. I want something bigger than 24" this time around.. I have a 19 " now but I want one that I can really really enjoy.

    I got the FHD2400 and am loving it! After turning the brightness all the way down and using shades to dim the screen some more, it is fantastic. I use the Alu iMac 24" at work all day and this Gateway at home and, while the Gateway is not quite an equal (it does use a TN panel after all), it is still very nice for home use. I love the myriad of inputs too, and the case design is very classy, almost like Apple designed it. I ran pixel tests and cannot find any stuck or bad pixels at all. I would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone.
