I guess my dreams of a huge LCD is out until I get a new rig.

So figured I'd go with what everyone says it one of the best brands - LG.

Anyone know whats the difference between the identically appearing 22" models from BestBuy (L226WTQ-BF) or the internet (L226WTY-BF)?

i can't find any info on LG's website about the L226WTY-BF so it's probably slightly newer but the BB price on the ...Q-BF is great. both have HDCP (required for Vista certification) so you'll be able to play hi-def copy-protected material on both.

if you plan on only using the monitor with your PC (and never plan on connecting it to a cable/set-top box), go with price and get the Q-BF. if you want/need 720p/1080i/1080p (hi-def TV) input, then check to see if the ...Y-BF can handle those signals via DVI/component input and decide if the extra functionality is worth the extra $50.

also, take a look at the westinghouse LCM-22W3 which is 22" and has DIV and component inputs and can handle hi-def TV signals (often on sale at BB for less than $300; i'm very happy with mine).

Bestbuy regularly orders custom units from manufacturers and lists them with a slightly different model number. I'm not sure but the cynic in me believes it gives them an out for that famous low price guarantee. These units are often missing a feature or two. So unless you're into immediate gratification, go with the unit from Newegg.

The Samsung RF23M8090SG

One of the best French door fridges we've tested

A good-looking fridge with useful features like an auto-filling water pitcher and a temperature-adjustable "FlexZone" drawer. It was a near-flawless performer in our cooling tests.
