You definitely want an Acer. Best monitors for the price.

The other day, I went to best buy and got 22" widescreen LCD monitor for $180.

Just go to the store, find a monitor you like, ask them if they can sell you the floor model, or if they have a open box (both have a 10% discount).
Shipping is a lot, and you can have you monitor after you pay.

Oh, I also got a 9800GTX+ for $100 (open box).

Best Buy will not sell you a display model unless they will not be receiving any more shipment of the item because it's discontinued. So don't waste your time walking in and expecting to get the display because you asked.

Seraskier, any reason you quoted what you said earlier? I simply stated what I know, given that I've worked for Best Buy for a few years.

But if you want to be pedantic, I suppose I can go ahead and also mention that if they have any open box items, they're going to be on the floor like other regular product but will have a big obvious open item sticker on it.
