I believe the better models: Samsung, Viewsonic, Dell - then second/third tier Acer, BenQ, Sceptor, SBD/OD/TD House brands...

Cheapest Samsung 22" goes for $199 + TAX @ CC. Great product & warranty and you don't have to line up. There may be cheaper deals on Boxing Day but it will be limited quantity or you may wait for shipping (ie. NCIX).

You can find Acer & similar quality brands for $180 or less. Office Depot is clearing out their house brand 22" for $170 + TAX.

Your best bet is buying on RFD or forums. Many sellers will discount their last year LCDs since we're upgrading to 24" Monitors or 42"-50" LCD TVs. A good range is $150-$175 for a 22" with balance of warranty. Always check your seller's reference and confirm warranty status - Good Luck.

for $150 u will find one but it will be from a crappy quality company.

Spend the little bit of more and get a LG or Samsung. I highly recommend it. Also 22" are same as 20" except that the pixels are bigger which means its less quality. Your blowing up an image slightly.

I got a 20" LG LCD 2 years ago from futureshop for $300. Best buy ever. Amazing quality. Plays 720P amazingly.

I am trying to decide which is a better deal? The Acer one (probably Acer2216) at the source for $150 or the samsung 21.6inch 2253LW? at futureshop at $180 or T220 for $200?

To add, there is the Hanns-G HG-216DPB for $180 at TD, which also has an HDMI port (Don't know how important/good that is). Out of the few already mentioned, including this one, what would be the best 22" in terms of quality and cost therein? Anyone good with LCD's wanna give us a hand here? :confused:

i do not have an opinion about the acer, as i currently own one and, do not like it due to the immense background bleeding :S...

as for the sammy 21.6 (2253LW) or 22 (T220) inch

well the main diff is that ones 22 inch and the other is 21.6 (yes .4 matters)
other then that t220 is the newer model

t220 has 20 000: 1 dynamic contrast (so basically how black the black colours will look, the higher the ratio the better)
and 2253lw has 8 000:1 dynamic contrast.

the t220 is the new (dash of colour) with a hint of red at the bottom and looks sort of like an lcd tv (more stylish)
the 2253LW got that classic "monitor look"

i say get the newest t220 its only $20 more on boxing (the look and the 20 000:1 ratio are worth it, the only thing i will be lining up for :D )

Oh, man, Guess I should have got the T220HD at $255 instead, it is not much more expensive than the T220, now that deal is over.

Thanks very much for your opionion, that helps.
