Just picked up the Samsung 226CW at Best Buy yesterday and all I can say is
This is the perfect monitor. Crysis plays so much better. Refresh rate is amazing. Clarity is so crisp. Did not need any colour adjustments out of the box. So much real estate to work with. It's really bright too. So much so that I had to turn the brightness way down when I was watching a DVD last night with the lights off. It's a damn sexy monitor too.
