That's a pretty popular monitor. Good price to performance ratio, normally. The price shown in that link is a bit steep. Wait until they have it on sale which is quite often or search out a price match.

I bought mine for $230 from NCIX not long ago. There is a bit of back light bleeding at the top and bottom but not too extreme. I read somewhere that this is due to them using the same back light as those found in their 24" monitors. I am very happy with mine and would recomend it. If you watch a lot of movies on your monitor (dark images) the light bleed may bother you a bit (I don't find it bad at all).
