In my point of view, $250 is a really low price for a monitor; however, I'm constantly inundated by users asking for recommendations for monitors under $200.

Other than a few exceptions, most monitors under $200 are either not worth their price or are intended for those who don't mind a sub 21-inch screen. In my opinion, the Gateway FHD2303L's $250 price is indeed a low price for a monitor, especially a 23-inch, LED-based monitor.

That, of course, doesn't necessarily mean it's worth your hard-earned moola. To see how moola-worthy the Gateway FHD2303L is, come see the full review.
