I am in the market for a moniter, actually two, because one of my Apple Studio Display monitors died. I will give my brother the other ASD monitor and get myself two 19" LCD monitors for my PowerMac G4. Besides CNET, which web site is the best to go to for reviews of monitors?

Would you happen to have a direct link? I do not see this monitor on the Dell web site.

It's there, I just checked. Enter a customer type, then it's under Electronics and Accessories. You should be able to dig through the carefully-organized sections to arrive at it.

Looks to be 750 to me. Where's the 550 price at?

The non widescreen 20" monitor is on sale, but not the widescreen one.

The monitor mentioned looks very good to me. Would any of you happen to know who makes the monitors for Dell?

I have a PowerMac G4 (Sawtooth). I see that to optimize the Dell monitor's performance, your system must be able to support WSXGA+ resolution (1680 x 1050). Will my ATI Radeon 7000 be able to drive the Dell monitor?
