cool, people say that the vertical veiwing angle is horrible, but i dont see why, i'm looking at it straight on (or at least i will be when i gets here...) so what is the problem...btw i know people with this monitor and i find nothing wrong with it...But to clear it up is there a problem when watching videos of backlighting on the top...i've never seen any.
