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 of factories. Like other models in this category (read: budget), the V221WD features a native resolution of 1,680x1,050, a 5ms response time, and DVI and VGA inputs. The warranty covers parts and labor for one year.
In other words, it's a pretty basic wide-screen LCD that's perfect for anyone looking to expand his or her screen estate. Pair it with your existing monitor or use it as an external display for your notebook/Netbook.
Now for the question of the day: How long will it be until we see a 22-inch LCD dip below $100? Probably a while yet, but I'm fairly confident it'll happen. Agree? Disagree? I'm all ears.
