I'm surprised this hasn't been posted yet... This seems pretty hot considering the price was a lot higher a month or so ago. I'm looking to take the conversion to LCD and now that they support higher response times, gaming won't suffer. All the reviews I've read seem to be supportive of the fp202w. The stats are as follows:

Model - FP202W
Screen Size - 20.1"
Widescreen - Yes
Display Type - WSXGA+
Maximum Resolution - 1680x1050
Recommended Resolution - 1680x1050
Pixel Pitch - 0.258mm
Display Colors - 16.7 Million
Brightness - 300 cd/m2
Contrast Ratio - 600:1
Response Time - 8ms
Horizontal Refresh Rate - 31-81KHz
Vertical Refresh Rate - 56-76Hz
Connectors - D-Sub (1x), DVI-D (1x)
Dimensions (W×H×D) - 18.9" x 15.6" x 6.7"

Does anyone have one of these and can vouch for the quality?

I picked up a Princeton Graphics 20" with these exact same specs Sunday for $249 at Costco. Since there's only a few screen manufacturers, I'd guess the base glass is the same. I'm hopeful anyways.

looks like a good deal, one thing to take into consideration for potential buyers is the contrast ratio tho, id rather have it a bit higher personally

I got one when it was a few $ more. I can say that I like this monitor very much. I use it for gaming so I can't comment on video. With DVI it's very sharp and I like the small foot print and light weight for LAN parties. Excellent deal.
