Comments: After finally deciding to upgrade from my 17", I spent months looking around for a 20-22" CRT and came to the conclusion that this Monitor was the best choice - even though like others, I had never seen it in person. I ordered from NewEgg at 12:17pm, and had it overnighted - got it in 20 hours. This company is the best period. All their prices may not be as cheap on some items as others out there, but for shipping/ tracking/ support - you can't beat them. Also do what others did and download the NEC software you will need to help in configuration. Initially the display was crooked but was easily able to adjust it back. Also it must be connected directly to your pc to configure it with the software - if you have a switchbox, it won't work so bypass it initially. You can always use the fewer on monitor controls however for configuration. Also note: This monitor is bright! - really, really bright. Sony has perhaps a decent contrast but the same monitor will cost you over 1K with them. I turned down the contrast and brightness to zero and now looks acceptable. Of course it's perfect normally, however a gamer like myselft like's it dark and lesser brightness really helps out. Many choices in configuration and total control over all aspects really make this monitor shine. I went from being a daily user of 800x600 to 1152x864. It's really amazing - dot pitch is perfect. As for the other reviews talking about the lines. This is a non-issue. I can see them only if I strain my eye's- trust me you'll never notice them. As for the other reivew about the edges being fuzzy - mine are perfect so I don't know if he got a defective one or needs to degaus or has unsheilded speakers next to the screen - mine's fine. Great Monitor, Great Company.
