I just bought a 22 inch Samsung LCD for the girl. It's amazing! it's 700:1 contrast ratio, 5 ms rate. (not as good as my plasma with 10,000:1 :) )
I'm sure it's not the best but it was only $400 samsung is a good brand. http://www.bestbuy.com/site/olspage.jsp?skuId=7954886&type=product&productCategoryId=cat01012&id=1152837304703 If you are into gaming I'd get a better contrast ratio one if possible..
LOL I just realized the one you posted is the same one I bought :) The Viewsonic has 800:1 compared to 700:1 on the samsung. I wonder if that would make any difference in gaming? Anyone? 22 inch Samsung with 700:1 or a 20.1 inch vewsonic with 800:1 I think I'd go for the Samsung.
It would make a difference, but 700:1 is still plenty bright enough. I'd go Samsung as well.
