Major chain kingpin Best Buy
has teamed up with Envision
, makers of illustrious, cheapo displays, to bring you the next step in frugal monitor technology -- the 22-inch G218a1. The widescreen LCD sports a 700:1 contrast ratio, 5ms response time, resolutions up to 1680 x 1050, VGA, D-sub and DVI-D inputs, and a set of built-in stereo speakers. Best Buy is selling the monitor exclusively for the "bargain-basement" price of $279.99, which will undoubtedly have you scratching your head, since you can get monitors of comparable quality for considerably less.
