Thanks for the response--I searched and found the *generic* rebates as you mentioned.
Question--I was also looking at the Viewsonic VP2030b as an option--the specs are very similar to the HP model, but with slightly higher contrast ratio and slightly lower viewing angle--but the panel type for the Viewsonic is P-MVA and the HP is S-IPS--do you know what the major differences in these panels are?
Is there a reference that compares these different panel types--pros/cons?
Be forewarned--this HP LP2065 is now a *lottery panel* model--most are getting a S-IPS panel (LG. Phillips LM 201U05-SLA1), but some (10-20% ? est.) are getting an A-MVA panel (AUO M201UN02-V6). Most suppliers will not check for the panel type sticker on the box, and will not take the monitor back for refund if you loose the *lottery*! So be careful!
