Thanks for the replies.
slikdigit - I was considering the p225fb, but it uses aperture grille, and I am concerned about the visibility of the shadow lines. Does it get a little fuzzy at resolutions higher than 1600x1200? Do you know anything about the G220fb? It’s not aperture grille and cost a little less.
RipSting - Your Sony sounds like something I’d buy. I was going to ask you guys to post a screen shot of a white background so I can see how prominent the shadow lines are, but then realized that shadows wouldn’t show up on a screen shot to begin with! You’d actually have to take a picture of your screen with a camera to see the lines. So forget about that idea.
Anyway, spending another $600 for a 21-22" just to get a little more resolution (from 1280x1024 to 1600x1200) and to get a totally flat screen, doesn’t really seem worth it.
A 21" can go higher than the optimal resolution of 1600x1200, but it won’t be as good, as far as I know. Maybe when high-definition, gas-plasma monitors come out things will be better and the upgrade will be noticeable. What do you guys think.
