hi,
i am about to buy an lcd and i have narrowed my search down to these two monitors the benq fp767 and the acer AL1721M.
now the benq has a higher contrast 500:1 other the acer which has 450:1, they are both 16ms responce time, they are roughly the same price but the benq only has analog input where as the acer has DVI and analog inputs.

so which lcd do u think i should go for, because i am stuck :p

thanks

I may be mistaken.. but I believe BenQ is the new name that Acer took on. So if I'd choose one of those, I'd go with the BenQ, since it's likely the most current. But if DVI is that important to you, I can see why you'd go for the Acer instead.

Hmm.. this is likely the least helpful post ever. Heh, sorry - I tried. At least I'll bump ya.

They are the same company now. You can still buy a new Acer. Love my BenQ. Could not tell you the difference between analog and digital as I have only had dig.
