    Is a diference in 100cd/m2 realy noticible.
    Is a 3 ms differnce in responce time that noticable as well
    only other major difference is the dot pitch .264 vs .294

    Or would you purchase some other LCD for this price range.
    mostly used for CAD/CAM, internet/bt , 1% chance or being used for games.

    help me decide

    The most noticeable thing is gonna be the pixel pitch. I don't remember if lower is better, but I'd get the better one based on the difference in pixel pitch.

    Not necessarily. The optimum pixel pitch is around .25mm Majority of the CAD CRT monitors like the Lacie Blue Electron are all .25mm

    Dude, if your just doing internet stuff and normal computing, either one is fine....it basically comes down to what you think looks cooler, and whats cheaper.

    :withstupid: :werd:
    I ordered the Fuji.

    and all of our CAD monitors here at work are .20mm pitch. and if you put a .25mm next to it you can really tell teh difference.
