Should have asked before ordering, just finished my order. But the reviews are pretty much perfect on it and it has everything I need for an extremely reasonable price.

should have used the promo on this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824005240
or this: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824260062

unless the promo was monitor specific of course.

Yes, it was monitor specific. Only good for that item.

And the one I got is an inch bigger and has faster response time than all the ones you posted.

Just out of curiosity what makes you say those would have been a better choice? Just wondering.

And i should also point out I need HDMI because I use my monitor for everything (PS3 and whatnot) and only one of those has HDMI.

they are better panels and are adjustable. one is an IPS too. the one you got isn't bad at all, but these are all superior.

I don't know much about monitors so could you elaborate? All I know is this seemed like a pretty good deal on a monitor with 100% positive feedback, HDMI, and its LED.

I'm not real sure what IPS panels are.

You don't need HDMI. Just get one of these:

Okay. Still not sure exactly why those other monitors are better than mine. Other than that they are IPS which is meaningless to me.
