Get a 22-inch LCD monitor for $89.99

Expand your screen real estate with this refurbished Hannspree display, which features built-in speakers and a 90-day warranty.


You know I can't resist a good monitor deal.

While supplies last, Mwave has the refurbished Hannspree Hanns-G HF225DPB 22-inch LCD monitor for $89.99, plus $4.99 for shipping. [Note: At 9:18 a.m. PT, this deal is marked "temporarily unavailable."] That is without question one of the best deals I've seen on a monitor of this size.

Okay, technically it's a 21.5-inch monitor, but apparently manufacturers are allowed to designate that as "22-inch class." In any case, this would work nicely alongside your laptop or existing desktop monitor. (I'm a big fan of dual-display computing.)

The HF225DPB offers most of the specs you'd expect at this price point: 1,920x1,080-pixel native resolution, a 5ms response time, and VGA and DVI inputs. The DVI input supports HDCP, which is important for viewing protected content.

The monitor also has built-in speakers, which would be more of a value-add if it also had an HDMI port, but the feature is there for those who want it.

Because it's a refurb, the warranty expires after 90 days. Not a deal-breaker for me, but something to consider if you're looking for a long-haul monitor. It might be worth spending another $30 to $40 on a screen that's covered for a year, or even three.

By the way, if you're interested in something a little larger, Mwave also has the refurbished Hannspree Hanns-G SL231DPB 23-inch LCD monitor for $114.99 shipped--another impressively low price. In terms of specs, it's pretty similar to the HF225DPB, except for having an LED-backlit screen (which should last longer).

Bonus deal: Curses! If you grabbed yesterday's Nook deal, I won't blame you if you feel like socking me in the mouth. Today only, and while supplies last, Daily Steals has the Barnes & Noble Nook Simple Touch Reader for $69.99 shipped--$15 less than yesterday. It's refurbished, but still comes with a one-year warranty.
