Anything better than a Dell 2001FP for $430?

The fact that all (AFAIK) 19" LCDs have a non-4:3 aspect ratio (at 1280x1024) has put me off from buying one.

However, the Dell 2001FP has a perfect 4:3 ratio at 1600x1200. The specs (contrast ratio/brightness), however, don't look all that great.

Here's a link to the sale

Can I do better for the same money?

Thanks guys. I'll check out the specs on those NECs.

The 20" NEC has nice specs; too bad it only comes in beige. Yuck! Does anyone actually buy anything beige anymore?

The 19" specs look really, really good. The "squishing" effect of 1280x1024 vs. 1280x960 still puts me off a little, though.

Then again, the 19" NEC IS $100 less than the Dell. Hmm.
