It looks like a nice monitor. With HD it must be at least 1680 x 1050...or 950?
I do like the 16:9 ratio, I hate stretched images, for that reason I always watch movies in wide screen if available.
You might check out MicroCenter.com, they have big sales often...not sure about shipping costs.

For 280 AUD (new) it's a good deal, and I wouldn't fret about the TN-ness - sure, with a friend's SPVA next to my TN, the colours aren't quite as good and the image isn't quite as sharp, but it's not worth paying twice the money when the issues aren't noticable during normal use. Unless you're a serious graphic designer or a pedant, TN is fine.

It seems like the one, i'm looking forward to more deskspace.
Hmm, I'd rather go to a BenQ reseller then Ebay. So 350$ it is.
Thanks for your help.

With the risk of also posting something old in internet time this far beats some flautist and had my jaw dropped for the full eight minutes.
