Yeah, I blew some of my bill money on a new monitor. I'm very tired of looking at mine, which I cracked last year. It's been functioning okay, except for the large unviewable portion where some of the liquid seeped out and ran down between the glass and the scratch coating.
So, having dealt with that for long enough, I got myself a 22" wide :)
I have one of these on my desk at work and it's awesome :). Can't wait to go from this broken 17" to a 22 wide. Oh, and I originally paid $300 for this 17" Sony. It's served me very well for 4 years. I'd still be happy with it if I hadn't cracked it.
