Quality 22" Ultrasharp monitors from Dell have been on Sale recently for as low as $200. I doubt these would be any better than the Ultrasharp monitor, probably just paying a premium for the name.
And I agree with the above posts in regards to not having a monitor capable of 1900x1200. People that buy AW desktops are buying systems that should more than handle 1900x1200 and have spent more than enough money on their desktop to be able to afford the slightly larger monitor.
Looks exactly like the Dell monitors I bought for my company, except it is all black. I can't imagine anyone dishing out the money for an Alienware system, then getting a 21" monitor. I currently have two 26" NEC monitors and I can't imagine going to anything smaller.
This one is slightly better than my 2ms Asus with the swivel stand and 2x HDMI. I only have tilt and 1x HDMI. The rest is pretty much the same. I got mine for $180 months ago...still chuggin' without a hiccup.
i just picked up a Sony GDM-FW900 24" CRT widescreen Monitor for 200$. These are the real gaming monitors imo, 2304 x 1440 @ 80 Hz in a 22.5" view area with no ghosties and amazing colour is somthing to behold. They retailed for 2300$+ when new. Can this alienware monitor even run 120hz refresh rates? whats the big deal?
Looks just like a Dell monitor to me. Shouldn't cost more than $175ish though. Those specs aren't impressive at all... who cares if you can view full HD on a little 21.5" monitor??? It ain't worth $150+ more than a std one to me. I could get a 23.6" 1080p for about $200.
Anything I'd expect form Alienware would have been several times the price. $290 isn't horrid for a screen of said resolution, though not great. The contrast is nice though.
What am I using?
ViewSonic VX724. Awesome screen if you can get around the 1280x1024 resolution thing.
If I were to finally upgrade from my VX724, it'd have to be a 2560x1600 screen. I know that colour quality and refresh rates drop at higher resolutions, regardless, I see no need to upgrade until then.

I hope it doesn't die like mine did cause they had some of the worst customer service I've ever dealt with
