    Anybody know of any good and cheap monitors? I need a new one for my mac pro that I will be getting soon. I'll just be using it for basic use, nothing too bad. I don't care if it's glossy or anti-glare or whatever. Something 22"-24" and between $200-$300. Also, I've looked at Dells and HPs. Any good suggestions on those?

    I'm fond of Dell LCDs after buying hundreds of them for my department. I use a Gateway at home but it has every input under the sun and it's almost two years old now.

    We usually purchased the 1707FP in lots of 20-30 every few months.

    The 22" monitors have DVI (w/HDCP) and VGA inputs for around US$220. I don't know if you want USB ports or features beyond tilting.

    I can't find any 22" 1707FPs. What monitor are you talking about? The Gateway?

    The 1707FP was a 17" from a year or two ago. I was just saying that I've order plenty of those without any problems.

    If you want a 22" monitor take a look at the new S2209W are in with 1920 x 1200 support for ~US$240 before taxes.
