No problem man ! As soon as it gets here, I'll be updating this post... may take a couple of days though---> UPS ground shipping from Richmond, B.C. to Montreal, Qc...... Just a littlle more patience.

Meanwhile, you can take a look at this : BenQ V2400W In Depth Review - [H]ard|Forum which I think gives a pretty good idea of what the thing is made of...

Yay !!! It's here, and it's a beauty !!!

I was a bit worried cause I had a stuck pixel... which I finally managed to "unstuck" by doing the "finger push" trick...Happily, no dead pixels

So mattlef , I have to say that I love it. I mostly use it for gaming where I think it performs really well : I haven't noticed any ghosting, and I'm really happy with the colors right out of the box... what can I add...Did I say I love it ??? I ain't no professional, but I think I did a great deal @ 401$.... Hope this can help make up your mind...

That is indeed a great price for a decent monitor. Speaking of which....I need to steal back my old 20" from my friend..... Coming on a year now that I let him borrow it.
