Price watch: 22-inch LCD monitor for $129.99

No refurbs, no rebates, just a kick-ass deal on a big ol' wide-screen monitor. Admittedly, it's "only" 21.6 inches, but are you really going to quibble at this price?

A 22-inch LCD for $129.99? It sounds almost too good to be true. CompUSA

I've never heard of Synaps, but I am a sucker for low-price monitors, so I can't help but be tempted by this: CompUSA has the Synaps 21.6-inch LCD monitor for $129.99. Shipping? A mere $1.99. Rebates? Nope. And it's not even a refurbished model!

The specifications look good: 1,680x1,050-pixel native resolution, DVI and VGA interfaces, and built-in speakers. It also has a 16:10 aspect ratio, though someone will have to tell me whether that's good or bad.

Perhaps most amazing of all, the monitor includes a 3-year warranty. Want to check out the company to see if it looks like they'll be around for three years? The Synaps Web site awaits you.

The only real downside I can see to this monitor is that it includes only a VGA cable. Guess it's BYO DVI.

At $129.99, this is an unbelievably good deal, meaning CompUSA will probably sell out quickly. If they do, you can try TigerDirect (same company).
