Today we're taking a look at two very different monitors. The first is the Dell ST2310, a very bare-bones and low-priced ($179 right now) monitor with purportedly, low power consumption. Look for a full review of the ST2310 later this week. For now, check out the shots.

Second up is the NEC P221w. Kind of the antithesis of the ST2310. Where the ST2310 sacrifices features for price, the $490 NEC throws in tons of features like pivot, rotation, and screen height adjustment. Not to mention a S-PVA panel that delivers much wider viewing angles than the Dell is capable of. Don't look for a full review of this guy before next week at the earliest, though.
