Price Watch: Soyo 22-inch LCD monitor down to $169.99 shipped

This brand-new widescreen was selling for 10 bucks more just a few weeks ago.

This is the lowest price yet on a 22-inch LCD.

A few weeks back I wrote about the Soyo 22-inch widescreen LCD, a pretty sweet deal at $179.99 shipped. It was a new unit, not a refurb, and you didn't have to deal with any heinous rebates.

Now, has the same monitor for $169.99 shipped, and it's new and rebate-free as well. Hey, 10 bucks is 10 bucks.

In case you missed it, the Soyo DYLM2284 has VGA and DVI inputs (though only a VGA cable in the box), built-in speakers, a 5ms response time (plenty low for games and movies), and a native resolution of 1680x1050. It's not HDCP-compliant, however, so you can't use it to watch Blu-ray movies if your PC has a drive.

A couple dozen customers collectively rated this monitor 4.5 stars out of 5, so you can rest assured it's a winner. Definitely worth a look if you're looking to expand your screen estate on the cheap.
