I was thinking about getting a new monitor and was originally thinking of getting an Acer, only because I have had a few friends say they are good for the price but I saw the 2009w and was swayed a bit. I know they use TN panels now instead of the S-IPS they used to but really, its just for text, games and the web so I don't forsee it as a problem. The reviews on Dell are 3.9/5 with the majority of people complaining about viewing angles, which can;t be much worse than the monitor I am using now! I have a bit hesitant to buy from Dell as if it sucks, i will have to pay 10% (15%?) restock PLUS return shipping. But I have liked the Dell's I have seen previously and the adjustable stand rocks! Any thoughts?
