Default BenQ E2200HD: Good Monitor?

Hey guys, Anitec's having a sale right pricing these at $199.95 and it seems to have great reviews. I just wanted your advice on whether to spring for this or if there's any other monitors you all would recommend in the ~$200 range?

im asking myself the exact same questions. All the reviews seem to say this is a good monitor for gaming and movies, but I'd love some actual opinions on it from anybody here that has one.

I think it depends on how good a monitor you are looking for. If you are looking for a cheap monitor but are not expecting super high quality for everything then it is a decent monitor. I bought one in november and since I don't have particularly high standards for my monitor (I don't do anything like image editing and video editing) I am very happy with mine.

yup, all i would want from it is gaming (mianly PC) I dont do any image editing so im more worried about response times and unput lag and it seems to be very good for that.

Ditto with ragenrok, the only image editing I do is for quick gags

From what ive read these are decent monitors for the price, I would perfer to go with samsung or LG though as im not a big fan of Benq.
LG W2242TQ-BF 22IN Widescreen LCD Black 2MS 1680X1050 8000:1 300CD/M2 VGA DVI Tilt Monitor - DirectCanada this ones nice but it doesnt come with the higher res. but I dont have much problems with playing
anything at 1650x1080, just personal preference. Im sure the benq would be just fine for a $200 monitor.

For 22" TN panels these are probably the highest rated currently.

BenQ X2200W
Viewsonic VX2262WM
HP W2207
Samsung T220

Ended up getting an Acer X223H when I was at Anitec looking at the ones on display. Nice sharp picture and even HDMI and hi-def if I ever want to start using it for an HTPC. It's about $20 more but worth it in the long run, I think.
