Isn't 4ms (grey to grey) a little misleading? I thought the response time was for switching from white to black?

1280x1024 on a 19" might look a little blocky, have only used an 18" as highest diagonal size.

If money is "no object" (or little object) consider 2 x 17" Same maximum resolution on each one than a 19", greater overall desktop space (2560 x 1024), have a browser and spreadsheet open while you play WoW in non-windowed mode and still see the contents (great for checking out maps and such). I picked up 2 for $220 each, great deal, especially at 8ms response.

LoC loves the two screens also, when she works on her book, column and websites, it means less context switching between applications. It's a productivity increaser! Microsoft says so, too, so it's gotta be true. Just ask Asher.

Neat :) Though any solution that puts multiple screen output through single videocard will stress it out a bit more, reducing performance. But that's what multiple videocards are for (not necessarily SLI - here at work, I scavenged 2 old PCI graphics cards to run m auxilliary monitors on: not quite the same performance as AGP, but better than overloading the AGP card).

Still, nice budget solution, provided it's cheaper than buying a second video card :D

I'm now running a 20.1" widescreen TFT with a 15" 4:3 TFT. Looks fantastic!
