Go for the 18 inch Microtek LCD that's now popping up at Wal-Mart stores everywhere.. but YMMV though - finally saw it today at the local Wally-Mart for 429 bucks with 30 ms response time - I don't trust the KDS models that they're also selling now.

Just curious - what's wrong with the KDS screens they sell? Are they just outdated? it seems like not too long ago that I was hearing good things about the KDS RAD-series LCDs. Almost bought one about a year ago, until I saw a better deal at Dell.

KDS usually uses discontinued LCD panels and puts them in new monitors (thats how they sell for so cheap!). When you buy KDS youre buying a monitor thats 2-3 years old but was never used.
