1440x 900 on a 22 inch wide screen. I guess I am just used to this size.

1440x900 on 22"? Are you running on the monitor's native resolution? Because most (if not all) 22" monitors have a native resolution of 1680x1050.

The laptop I'm using now is only a 15.4" but I'm using a resolution of 1650x1050 and everything appears to be displaying just fine. No especially large text, anyway.

You mean the model with the panel lottery

The problem with the 226BW is that its build doesnt seem to be consistent. That its subject to the 'panel lottery' (like certain Dell units) where its initial production run used original Samsung made panels and subsequent units use or may use panels 'alleged' to be of a lower quality subcontracted out to a cheaper panel maker. The original Samsung panels have an "S" in the beginning of its serial number behind the back plate while the 'inferior' panels beign with an "A".

This is a big issue at Hard Forums where a 3000+ post thread deals with the 226BW and the "S" vs "A" panels. Many buyers have been very disappointed with the quality of the A panels and have returned them for refunds or replacements. I was initially very interested in the 226BW but I will not buy it if this issue is unresolved and the panel origin is unknown. I hope I can find some comparison review of these two types of panels and see how they fare side by side.

Yep, that one. All monitors manufactured after August (or September, I forgot) of 2007 have Samsung "S" panels, confirmed by a Samsung representative.

The "A"/"C" (AU Optronics/ChiMei) panels do show a blue tinge, but this can be fixed to look as good as an "S" panel with a colour profile.

LG L226WTQ 22inch wide screen (bought that instead of the Samsung one because of that panel lottery)
1 dead pixel

I bought it in july, but now I'm a bit disappointed as HDMI is coming up (and I don't have it ) and 24" screens have a reasonable price now
