    I have a 26" monitor, I find that when playing games it's too big for how close I sit to it. All the time I'll be focusing on the center of the screen and miss whatever is happening on the edges.

    Yeah, I think 24" for gaming is the sweet spot. Bigger is good for movie watching.

    Thank you gentlemen for your advice. I shall take said advice and completely ignore it for now. Worse comes to worst, I'll simply switch monitors in their function. Here's a creepy image.

    Did a bit of spring cleaning and cleared everything off the desk. Everything is nifty thrifty at this point (made room for the Epson V90 scanner). However, now my speakers are freakishly loud and for the life of me I can't figure out why.

    Had to return the item specifically for the reason that the item was ordered new and had already been opened and resealed.

    Fucking Hell, I liked Newegg even with the retarded restocking fees they had in place.

    Hmmm....

    Yea... newegg has been my go-to forever... I've spent countless $$$$$ there. Recently I ordered a Gigabyte Radeon 7970 ($399) and it was broken out of the box... immediate artifacts, etc. The static bag that it came in was closed by a simple piece of scotch tape (possible that's new, although would have expected manufacturer seal?) but the card itself appeared to be used! WTF! They even gave me a small hassle about returning it... starting by saying they would do exchange for same card only, and then no refund just a $400 store credit... but then in the end gave me a full refund with no re-stock fee and even paid return shipping.

    I was quite surprised to not only spend $400 on a card to have it show up broken, but also the possibility that it wasn't quite new?

    Status update.

    After a week of not having a u2412m standing on end so I can read the latest pettanko hentai on Fakku.net without having to scroll, Newegg has informed me (after insisting upon replacing the monitor rather than refunding the money) that the monitor cannot be replaced because there are no new monitors and will be refunding the money I spent.

    In other news, Newegg is still offering "brand new" u2412m monitors.
