Thedy had the Westinghouse 22" widescreen for $199. Also another nice 19" widescreen for about $129. They should have more again this year as current monitors are gettin' larger and utilizing more state-of-the-art technology while the others are gettin' cheaper. Let's hope for a slight drop, or maybe a huge one, in prices.

I don't think it will be any stretch to see a 22" for under $200. They already run around $230, if you watch for them.

True. The way monitor prices have been dropping lately we should see some pretty sweet widescreen LCD monitor deals this BF. Most 21"+ should be on sale around $200, but there might be a few for even within the $100 mark. :D

There is a news article about how the 22 inch monitor panels are in short supply now, but the good news is that the 42 inchers are predicted to be in the $700 price range. the 35/38 inchers are reported to be falling to $299-$399. You can get the headlines over at Toms hardware.:yup: This is supposed to happen just before christmas.:eyepoppin

Those prices might happen. Every year prices drop bit by bit. But it's questionable by how much since old-style (non-LCD) tube TVs are still being produced and sold.

Far as PC monitors, the 21-22" are becoming more popular and dropping in price as bigger monitors are released. 24" are out now and even bigger ones with VGA and digital inputs are arriving. I think the bare minimum people will accept these days is about 19" and those are going down into the $100-200 mark.

27" of a computer monoitor? Maybe an LCD TV to hook your PC up to. But a 24" LCD monitor would hardly even fit on my computer desk much less anything bigger. A setup like a 21-22" monitor sitting across from a 25"+ TV hooked up to the PC would do just nicely for me.

There have already been several 22" wide deals this year for <$200. I'm going to guess that you can get a 22" for $149-$169 on BF. There will be several deals for $189-$199 as well. I think the 22" is where the sweet spot will be this year. The 24" monitors are still a bit pricey, but you may see one for $389 or so. Just my predictions. :)

I am in total bliss with the 22" and my regret is that I didn't buy another one. I would love to dual panel my box with those.

My old set-up was a 17" HP laptop with a 19" standard width Dell LCD as a dual-screen.

I just bought a 14.1" laptop and a 14.1" LCD (for dual-screens). I plan on building a tower and adding a pair of 20" or 22" above the 14.1"s... Quad-screens, baby! The two bigger ones for working, the laptop for Outlook and the other 14.1" for TV or DVDs.

Quad 22"s would be too tall for me. I'd have neck strain when looking at the upper monitors.

If BB does have a deal on 22" monitors I bet they'll be under $179 b/c the second week of august they had 22" Westinghouse for $179, I bought 2! I didn't want to try to get one on BF and the closest BB is an hour away. They specs weren't super great but I fired up Photoshop (I'm a proffesional photographer) and the color depth was wonderful. I ordered one online and when I saw how it looked I drove to the store to buy another one! It's also great for World of Warcraft...I guess I'll never grow up!

I have dual 17inch lcd right now, and looking to go bigger, price is the deciding factor, since I paid nothing for the pair of 17s :)

If I remember last year, there it was both BB and Staples with 20/21/22" WS monitors on sale. I went to staples (almost no line) and got the 21" for $179 If memory serves me. I hate giving away my secrets, but few of you live around me, so check some of the other retailers like OM, OD and Staples if you have only 1-2 items you really want and they may have an equal deal with a lot less line = less waiting + more chance of getting the item you want.

Precisely why I only go to OM, OD and Staples! :razz:

I am going to guess that someone will have 22"'ers for $139. I got my wife's 22" four months ago for $169 AR from Fry's ($239 instore), and they were $179 AR just last week.

I agree the 24" Soyo has a good price for its size, but it's a SOYO! :yuck: :gdpuke: :crash:




(Sorry 'bout the liberal use of the smilies, but Soyo has left a very bad taste in my mouth, as well as lots of others...........)
