  1. I just got Samsung Syncmaster BX2331 which is 23 inch 1920x1080 monitor only for $200 from newegg. The promotion ends on monday 1/17 so you only got 2 days to save extra $20~!! And it's a really good LED monitor. The only downside is the stand but it's not a big deal to me and price is really good.
