Don't see this deal in their online flyer.
This fit my console gaming needs. Specs I was looking for were: sub $200 (by 1 penny!); dual HDMI; 27"; and decent input lag (11ms from displaylag.com). Speakers are a bonus although user reviews were right, not great. For me, sound was good enough to play games but not good enough when I watched a movie. Will be buying external speakers.
Pricewise, newegg was selling refurbished ones with one buyer saying it cost $180 shipped to his/her door. This is brand new and pricewise, it was $229.99 during the last Cyber Monday sale so $30 cheaper.
Assembling was pretty simple, just screw in the stand although I must say, it was barely a few turns and doesn't leave me with much sense of security. Wish the height was adjustable but I'm sure I can find something to prop it on (too bad I recycled all my Yellow Pages last week). People criticized the menu but it's not hard to figure out after a few moments of fidgeting.

Please reply if you have experience with monitor or if I made a mistake in the specs. Hope this helps at least one person.
