I just found a sweet deal on a 19" LCD monitor. It's not a brand you've ever heard of but it's $110 after $100 rebate and $20 instant savings at Office Depot. I think I'm gonna order a pair of 'em. It was recently featured on Woot and for the most part the reviews the Woot users posted were very good. I didn't order it through Woot because the rebate was limited to only one unit and I want two.

Here's a link to the method of getting the instant savings as well as the download of the rebate form:

Note that there are other vendors with a nominally lower price but the rebate is only valid through Office Depot (see the "What's the Secret" section).

Subject: LCD monitors

If this has been discussed recently, I apologize. I've been AWOL for
a couple of months. I did a quick subject scan of the archives, and
didn't come up with anything recent. Feel free to point me to a
particular thread in the archives, if the topic was discussed under
some other, not-obviously-relevant subject header.

I'm going to do it. Finally. I'm giving up my beloved 21" hi-rez
(at the time) monitor because:
(a) the image is beginning to go wobbly at the edges
(b) occasionally there are loud clicks and then the colors go weird
(c) it's just too danged BIG now that it has to share the desk with
my laptop, laser printer, fax, two external hard drives, external
floppy/zip drives, scanner, Epson R1800 photo printer, phone, and a
cat (whichever one lost the race for the top of the CRT).

Unfortunately, there are hundreds of them to choose from them. I
took a look at a few review sites, but they seem to concentrate on
the reallyreally expensive models that are out of my price range. My
budget may stretch to cover a 19" or 20" LCD monitor, but not the
23"+ models that ZDNet, CNET, and MacWorld seem to concentrate on.

Any suggestions? Horror stories, about either models or vendors?
