I just got the new Dell 2209WA that everyone is raving about with its e-IPS 8bit panel.And i must say its a very nice monitor.After much thought i decided i needed a 22 inch LCD rather than the 28"Hanns G that i have and had to rma.Well the Hanns G will be back monday but thats gonna be my Xbox 360 Gaming Monitor from now on and the 2209WA is gonna be my new main monitor.

But anyway back to the 2209WA.Its a great monitor and has a very nice viewing image.There is no black light bleed in the dark with a black screen that i can see and the viewing angles are great.So far its just as nice as my Dell Ultra Sharp 2007FP.It looks awesome in L4D

Im very happy with this purchase and if your thinking about getting a 22 inch LCD dont bother with those other 22" TN screen monitors.Get this monitor.IIts worth the extra $50 to $75.I paid $317 shipped and it only took 2 days from the time i ordered it til it was at my door. Even with the 3-5 day shipping option.
Only problem is you cant order this on DELL's regular website you have to go to the small business website but they will sell it to you no problem at all.I had no problem buying mine .I just entered my info and it was done .I did all the footwork for you and found the link to buy this monitor.So here is the link i used

Here is another link with more info on this monitor

Mot,

Nice monitor.... by the way... where did you see in the spec that it was a 8-bit panel? I didnt see that listed anywhere... but i could have missed it too... and is the screen matte or glossy?

I'm pretty sure when they say 16.7 Million colors it's a 8-bit panel. Also Dell's Ultrasharp line has almost always used very high quality 8-bit LCD panels. I have an older 20" Widescreen model with an excellent LG Phillips 8-bit panel. Apple's $800 20" Cinema Displays from the same time period used the same exact panel (the Dell was about $400 at the time).

G.G the screen is matte and it doesnt say in the specs its an 8bit panel but like Adam said 16.7 Million colors = 8-bit panel.But thats not always true some TN screen claim 16.7 colors but use dithering to achieve this claim but they still have awful viewing angles.But this is a True 8bit panel with 16.7 million colors and 178/178 viewing angles.The only other 8 bit 22" is the HP LP2275w with its samsung S-PVA panel.Which my Dell Ultra Sharp 2007FP also has and believe me these two monitors have awesome picture quality and viewing angle.Unlike my HG281D which has a great pic straight on but viewing it from any major angle distorts the pics colors

Its a very nice panel indeed...a little plain but very nice. Dell are known to make good panels. Where you not tempted to go a little bigger Tom?

I have the Hanns G HG281D also.Which is 27.5" and its just to dang big for my desktop.But its aweome for gaming which is why its going on my Xbox 360.But this monitor is perfect for my needs as a desktop monitor and gaming monitor.Im 110% happy with this purchase.As far as being plain.Yes it is.And thats what i wanted no HDMI which makes nvidia drivers see it as a HD TV and then it wont go to sleep without a reg hack.Another reason the HG281D is going to my Xbox.And i dont need all the other hookups either.Im happy with the 2 extra USB 2.0 ports

I forgot to get batteries when i went shopping this morning >:o for my dam digital camera

Tom,

I did not mean plain spec wise just to look at...does the Xbox power the 27" monitor without issue Tom. TBH the hassle of getting games to run super smooth at 1920x1200 I would not bother going any bigger now.....I see why you had dual 260's now...hehe.

Congrats super panel.
