This monitor just went into Best Buy's outlet center, and the price has dropped quite a bit over the last week. A few days ago it was marked down to $285 from $309. Now it's $255. Even when you figure in tax, it'll still end up being cheaper than Amazon or even Newegg.

It's available with in-store pickup only, and the number of stores that claim to have it in stock seems to be getting more limited.

I picked one of these up, and I have to say that I didn't like it. For some reason, the monitor would default to the HDMI input (I have my desktop machine on DVI) and wouldn't recognize DVI until Windows was almost completely loaded. Also, Samsung's included calibration software doesn't work on Windows 7, even though they specifically state it does.

I might try one of the 120 Hz 1080p panels, or more likely, I'll just keep using my trusty Dell.
