Get a 21.6-inch LCD monitor for $110 shipped

You'll have to wait on a pair of rebates to get that price, but PC Connection's is the lowest price ever on this big beauty, the Soyo DYLM2284.

Yes, you read right: PC Connection has a 21.6-inch Soyo DYLM2284 LCD monitor for $109.95 with free shipping. Amazingly, it's a new unit, not a refurbished model. So what's the catch?

Rebates. Two of 'em. Your out-the-door price is $169.95, minus a pair of $30 mail-in rebates. One of them expires today, so if you're interested in the deal, chop-chop. (Make that click-click.)

The Soyo features VGA and DVI inputs (alas, no HDMI), built-in speakers, a 5ms response time (great for games and movies), and a native resolution of 1,680x1,050 pixels. It does not appear to be HDCP-compliant, however, so you won't be able to watch Blu-ray movies from your PC.

I think that's a pretty minor shortcoming for most users. Interestingly, I've featured this monitor a couple times before--first at $199, and then at $169. At $109.95, it is without question one of the best deals of 2009 (so far).

PC Connection is an industry veteran, so swallow your dislike of rebates, and grab one of these monitors before they're sold out!
