Put a 22-inch Dell LCD on your desk for $139

And not just any 22-inch Dell LCD: The S2209W features 1080p native resolution, which is unheard of for a monitor at this price. Plus, you get a three-year warranty.

A 1080p LCD for $139? Grab this before Dell fixes the price mistake! Dell

Much as I hate to post back-to-back deals from the same vendor, I couldn't let this go by: Dell has a 22-inch LCD monitor for $139 shipped (plus sales tax in some states). That's already a stellar bargain, but this monitor has something I've never seen at this price point: 1080p resolution.

See, a 22-inch LCD in the $140-150 range is nothing new (heck, I found one for $129 a few weeks back), but I've never seen one with a resolution higher than 1,680x1,050.

The Dell S2209W tops out at 1,920x1,080 (that's 1080p in HD-speak), making it a perfect match for PCs with Blu-ray drives. And to that end, it includes an HDCP-compliant DVI port (as well as standard-issue VGA). Sorry, though: no HDMI.

In most other respects it's a pretty vanilla monitor, albeit one with sleek, rounded corners. Compared with most budget LCDs, this one's a looker. Plus, it comes with a three-year warranty. (What, you thought this was another refurb? Nope, it's new!)

If you're in the market for a new monitor, the S2209W's a slam dunk. (Check the user reviews if you don't believe me.) I don't know how long the sale (or stock) will last, so act fast if you want in.
