    I'd have thought your probably better off getting a couple of extra inches for a little more. The $198 price is at a few places - dse, officeworks, jb hifi and likely more - so if your getting it you might want to try for a bit more of a discount.

    It's a good price for a monitor - heck I remember paying well over five times that amount for a 14inch NEC Multisyc CRT job. Thing is, as Donkey says, it's amazing but that's not a special price in the market now. Heck, for less than half the price of what I paid way back when, I can get a ]23inch monitor with HDMI, full HD 1080p support, 2ms response, and capacitive touchscreen with multitouch support. Scarey.

What do you think?
