Bestbuy


The powers that be are moving me to a different area of the cube farm.  For years I've been looking at a box that takes up about 4 sq ft of desk space, so I'm going to buy my own damn monitor.  I know I want 19" and widescreen.  The one that I linked has a HDMI input, so I always have the option of bringing it home and using it as a TV in the shitter if I want to.  I didn't see anything on Newegg that I liked better than this one, and my Bestbuy is only a couple of minutes away from here.

So, are there any deals out there that are going to beat this one?

OST and bump for interest.  Looks like a very good deal to me.

HDMI is just DVI with sound.

So if you want to hook HDMI up to a monitor with just DVI inputs, you can get a $10 HDMI -> DVI cable from NewEgg and then use normal audio cables to hook up the audio.

Just saying...

Thats how I hook up my PC to my LCD tv, but in reverse... I use a DVI out on my PC to an HDMI in on the TV, then run audio separately.

Its also an extra cable/adapter.  If I do wallmount this thing later in front of my crapper, I'll just need a power cable and a little tiny HDMI cable.  With the DVI adapter I'd have a thicker cable and then have to run audio somewhere else.  I'm not that concerned with the sound quality of my future bathroom TV, it will be off of my bar/theater area.
