Riddle me this: What gets bigger while simultaneously getting smaller? Why, monitor sizes and monitor prices, of course. (Wow, what a terrible riddle. Now you know why I'm a blogger and not one of Batman's arch-enemies.)
Witness the 25-inch I-Inc iF251HPB LCD, on sale at TigerDirect for $199.99. It's a new monitor, not a refurb, and it requires zero rebate forms. Alas, shipping will run you about $22.
I-Inc may not be a household name (indeed, it sounds like some Apple spin-off), but the monitor has some seriously good specs.
For starters, it delivers 1,920x1,… Read more
I know many of you were bummed about missing the dirt-cheap 24-inch LCD from the other day, which sold out soon after I posted it. Well, like I always say, there's usually a better deal just around the corner.
Case in point: ZipZoomfly has an Asus VH242H 24-inch LCD monitor for $169.99 shipped. That's after a mail-in rebate [PDF], but it's for only $10.
In other words, you can skip the rebate altogether and still get a 24-inch LCD for the same price as the ViewSonic posted Monday.
What's more, the Asus is new, not … Read more
Still squinting at a 17- or 19-inch monitor? Heck, if you're using a laptop as your primary PC, you might be looking at a mere 15-incher. The horror!
Fortunately, loads of extra screen estate await you: PC Connection has a refurbished ViewSonic VX2433WM 24-inch LCD monitor for $179.95 shipped. (You may have to pay sales tax, which in my neck of the woods comes to about $11.)
It wasn't too long ago that a 22-inch LCD for under $200 was something to crow about, so a 24-incher for even less is mighty impressive. Based on my calculations, … Read more
The monitor deals are coming fast and furious these days. Witness PC Connection's latest: a 21.6-inch Vison V221WD LCD for $119.95 shipped. (You may have to pony up sales tax.) These are new units, not refurbs, and you don't have to mess around with rebates. Woo!
Granted, that's 10 bucks higher than the 21.6-incher from a couple months ago, but that sucker required two rebates. Here you're getting out the door on the cheap.
I'm not familiar with the Vison brand, but, hey, most of these LCDs come from the same handful … Read more
Much as I hate to post back-to-back deals from the same vendor, I couldn't let this go by: Dell has a 22-inch LCD monitor for $139 shipped (plus sales tax in some states). That's already a stellar bargain, but this monitor has something I've never seen at this price point: 1080p resolution.
See, a 22-inch LCD in the $140-150 range is nothing new (heck, I found one for $129 a few weeks back), but I've never seen one with a resolution higher than 1,680x1,050.
The Dell S2209W tops out at 1,920x1,080 (that'… Read more
