    Using the Viewsonic w/o any problems...

    FYI, IIRC, Viewsonic's VX series comes w 0 dead pixel for 1st year n 3 for the 2nd & 3rd. Everythin's on-site 1 to 1 xchange.

    By the way, can games adapt to the wide format? Or will everything appear stretched (yucks).
    There's the LG Flatron L2000C which you can tilt and rotate (180 degrees). I am using that at work btw.

Height adjustable. 3 yr warranty on site. 1st year >2 pixels (dead or bright). 2nd and 3rd year >3 pixels. Display made in Korea sumore. Viewsonic using Taiwan made displays.

    Ah bummer... I think I got the last one then. I think you gotta wait for the new stock to come. Hopefully the price will drop even further by then. Cheers!

    Please help. Thanks.

    PS: Right now, I am torn between the ViewSonic VX2025vm and the LG Flatron L2000C. Both meet my specs (except for price) but the Viewsonic sort of have a green cast (maybe the set on display at Sim Lim is a faulty one) and the LG isn't a wide display.
    Get a Dell. I had used 3 of their LCDs over the past 3 years. The only one that is better is the Apple Cinema display. $$$. Dell is running a promo now. check them out. the 22" is within your budget.

    Viewsonic discontinued the monitor already, means we won't be seeing any new ones.

    Traditional wide screen has never been good for editing anyway, stick to the normal one - a graphic person's 2c's worth anyway... Personally, I recommend the LG one. Think almost all the brand sold in SL has 3 yrs on site warranty.

    It's probably just his personal opinion. I've been using my WS for photo editing and all that space has given me a lot of flexibility to view my photos in WS, plus cutting down all that scrolling.

    You want me to go back to normal sized screens? Not in a million chances!

    if you're editing portrait pics, normal size screens gives u more veritical screen space than similar size wide screens. Wide screens typiclaly cut the top of your normlal screen and put it at the side for your wideness.
