My System Specs

Default Need to find a monitor for $100

Need a new LCD monitor for ~$100, could be a Benq, preferably 21-22".

It's for the kid's rig, so image quality isn't paramount.

Any people got any good deals out there? Preferably something that's available locally in Winnipeg.

Staples is probably the best place to check for that kind of thing.

I actually got this one BenQ GW2250 21.5in - $119.99 at Memory Express and pricematched it to NCIX at $109.99. Picked it up on Saturday, should fit the bill very nicely.

Thanks.

EDIT: Also, apparently there's a $10 enviro fee whenever you buy a new display of any kind. This was news to me, and kind of caught me off guard. I haven't bought a monitor since I bought my 24" four years ago.

I picked up a pair of LG E2040 LED screens. They sit on either side of an LG W2442PA which is an LCD. Side by side I can see the difference LED makes and someday will replace the centre screen with an LG 24" LED. I paid $89 each for the LG at The Source on clearance. I've had good experience buying from Memory Express.com and they will match any on-line Canadian price eg Newegg.ca or NCIX, if they stock it. And they have a flat shipping fee of $4.99 CDN. I have not found prices as favourable at my local Staples, but you could hit a sale. I've stuck with LG because I like their products, served me well. Life is Good eh? I use ShopBot.ca to quickly find the lowest advertised price, works well.
