    Yeah but what do I do when my wife is watching TV? I have my cave where my computers are. I moved my 19" Acer from my Windows machine over to this one.
    I guess I shouldn't complain, I bought the 4 month old $400 Chimei for $110 shipped (Ebay) about two years ago and I've been considering an upgrade to a 30+" wall mounted monitor.

    In the meantime I have to deal with a smaller screen and a greatly reduced video quality.
    (I'm spoiled!)

    I was doing my online search for a new/used monitor on Ebay. They had a bunch of Asus 24" wide screens, factory refurbished, for $170 to $180 each. Did my usual review search of a couple and in the process found the one I was interested in at Newegg, on sale for $180 brand new with an extra $10 mail in rebate which is about 30% of the regular price.

    ASUS VH242H Black 23.6" 5ms HDMI Full 1080P Widescreen LCD Monitor

    Should have it by Monday at the latest.

    This is the second.

    I don't think I will ever buy Chimei.

    At first I thought he was talking about beer. (Chimay - the only beer I ever consume.)
