Shopping for a new computer monitor, maybe something for gaming that'll also let you watch the coolest commercials from next week's big game in style? Depending upon what you're looking for, you can spend $80 at the low end all the way up to $1,000 or more. At the budget end of the spectrum, $80 will typically buy you a 1080p LED display that uses a TN (Twisted Nematic) panel. TN displays are cheap, but don't hold that against them, since they can look quite good and have the added advantage of having a fast response time that's good for gaming. Right now, Rakuten is offering a Lenovo D22-10 21.5-inch LED display for just $67. That's down from the list price of $89 and making this a great value even among lower-priced displays.
That's exactly the same price as you'll find on Lenovo's website right now, but if you buy from Rakuten, you also get 1,340 Rakuten points, which is worth $13.40. Of course, to take advantage of the deal, you'll need to create a free Rakuten account, if you don't already have one.
The LED-backlit LCD monitor has a TN panel and a native resolution of 1,920x1,080 pixels. It comes on a tilt stand, though you can also mount the monitor on a wall. Lenovo also claims that it is Low Blue Light certified, for less eyestrain. It features VGA and HDMI ports as well as a headphone jack. Be aware, though, that this monitor ships without a connection cable, so you'll need to supply your own.
