    I was looking at this monitor online but can't find one anywhere locally (Denver, CO). I want bigger than 24" but don't want the 30". I've seen this one for around $600 so that fits my budget.

    Any insight would be helpful. Thanks!:)

    I did find this monitor at Microcenter. I watched a regular dvd on it from a gateway machine. It looked pretty good. It definitely has all the connections you could want: HDMI for my Mac via DVI adaptor, component input for xbox 360, S video and a few more

    I think the dot size means you get a larger screen than the 24" viewsonic but no more desktop space since they are the same. Maybe someone knows more...

    Its on rebate at Microcenter for $629 but I know how much people love rebates!

    Not sure if my PM 2.0 dual (2003) w/ATI radeon 9600 w/64MB ddr ram will run it.

    I read the reviews at newegg and there appears to be a problem with sleep mode when your computer is hooked up with the hdmi. Viewsonic supposedly knows about this but I'm not sure if they have a firmware fix yet....anyone else know about this?
