Looks like a pretty solid 20.1 inch LCD, good specs on it, anyone ever use one or have one?

no, but I have been using the 1860NX for a few months now and couldn't imagine life without it. I also have it next to a cheapy pixo AT700S and the NEC looks much much better.

Ya the 2080UX+ looks pretty nice, just came out a few weeks ago so haven't seen any reviews. I was considering buying the Dell (forget the model #) one that used to be only packaged with their XPS game system but is now available. The NEC one just seems to be a bit nicer. Just trying to find a decent set of 20-21" LCD's to allocate to my secondary workstation, hopefully these will turn out to be good.

yes, the NEC's seem to be very popular among people who will pay the price for a really good monitor. Also, the Viewsonic LCD's are excellent. There are three tiers of LCD pannels and ViewSonic is the only company that I know of that uses the top tier ones.

Yes, I was looking at the Viewsonics as well, I've always used their CRT's and have been hapily pleased with their quality, reliability and overall performance. I'm pretty picky however when it comes to my hardware and Viewsonic didn't (at least that I could find) offer a 20-21" LCD with a 16ms response time.

comparing Viewsonics and NEC's, I personally like NEC's better. The one thing I like about NEC's is generally the black color that the screens almost always come in, and a thin bezel. Viewsonic is great too, but I don't know. Something about branding maybe? Or too often in beige or something non black? Something about it just pushes me away. Though head to head in just the visual output itself, they both are top notch quality. But I'd just personally like NEC. I dunno, I think "NEC" sounds better than "Viewsonic" too... hahaha. Strange, aren't I? :)

call me silly, but the main reason i decided to go for the NEC was because of the black colour and the thin bezel :p . And, in a way, I guess NEC does sound better than ViewSonic :shrug:

Sage: I did read that and contacted Viewsonics tech support, they stated that the 16ms was a misprint and they do not manufacturer any LCD monitors above 17" with a response time of 16ms. So looks like I'm going with the NEC's, as soon as they start shipping at least :)
