    .25 is more expensive and is flater so it has less glare. .28 is slightly more round and has more glare but are pretty inexpensive moniters.

    I don’t think dot pitch has anything to do with whether it is flat screen. The lower the dot pitch the better your resolution will be.

    That is correct; the lower the number or dot pitch the better. The refresh rate is also an issue; a higher refresh rate results in less eyestrain.

    IMHO, it's always worth spending the extra money on a better monitor.
