Good to hear Cheator, I am trying to decide to go with a new 22" lcd or go H2o, but I think the lcd is going to be the winner. :)

My System Specs

Default

I have the same monitor. Mine came setup with very strong reds. After some tweaking I've got it looking quite nice. I got it during Boxing Day from Dell.

If you want to try my settings they are:
Red: 91
Green: 92
Blue: 93
Brightness: 52
Contrast: 81

Then I drop the Gamma down in the NVIDIA control panel to make the blacks black.

Incase you haven't already come across it, checkout Widescreen Gaming Fourm as they have tutorials and "hacks" to get some games to run in widescreen resolution even if they don't support it.

I've had my Dell E228WFP for a few months now and I just love it. With a little tweaking it looks very nice.

I have also been using the same monitor for a few months. No dead pixels and I used the lcd calibration tool that's located on HWC somewhere. It should be stickied in the Display Units thread.
