Actually the P1110 is better than the 1100. I could have had the P1100 for like $150, but the P1110 is .24mm or .25mm dot pitch instead of .26mm, and it is flat!

There is a place in Troy, MI called Second Wind PCs that sells refurbished stuff at super cheap prices. Even though it is refurbished, and comes with a 30-day warranty, it is still really awesome stuff. The NEC P1150 that I bought from them 8 months ago still works perfectly, and has almost no cosmetic flaws. Normally I am not all for buying refurbished, but this place is on the up and up.

Yeah if you are ever looking for a monitor check them out.

I think is is just www.secondwindpcs.com but it's not working right now. There site might be down.

My favorite thing about them is that I don't have to pay the $60 shipping, I can go pick it up.

I use an HP P1110 21" Trinitron at work and a Compaq P900 19" Trinitron at home. The HP looks better than the Compaq, but it is not a fair comparison since my work computer has an ATI Fire GL 8800, and my home PC has a GF4. The HP doesn't support very high refresh rates though.

Resolution Refresh rate/Hz
640 x 400 70
640 x 480 60, 85
800 x 600 85
1024 x 768 75, 85
1280 x 1024 75, 85
1600 x 1200 75, 85, GTF
1800 x 1440 80

Those refresh rates look pretty good, but I'm suprised it can't go higher than 1800x1440 (not a 4:3 resolution). 1920x1440 at 80Hz would be pretty decent.

You sure about those? The vertical scanning frequency is supposed to go up to 180hz. I remember reading somewhere that 1024x768 was like 144hz. I will see if I can find it.

EDIT: Here on the third page lists all of the resolutions and refresh rates. It has some high refresh rates that are non-VESA. Can I still use those? Or can I only use VESA modes?
