I didn't get meine at newegg, mine was just over $200.00.
My only con wrt this monitor is the lack of height adjustment. It sits very close to where I would have it anyway though.

So far this thing is amazing.
Where did you get it for just over $200? From a store or was someone selling theirs?

I've always liked how that display looks aesthetically.

One of my favorite features so far is the dynamic contrast. I fire up anything dark and the shadows and blacks actually look like they're supposed to. Just the slightest, tiniest hint of banding with drastic color changes, like a sunset with shadows in the foreground.

Tis a keeper til I can get a larger monitor that matches or exceeds the specs.

And yes, it purty too.

You do, that's teh suck for sure. I only posted this because I was in the market for another 24", as I really liked the 2405FPW I had before. Saw this deal and am finding myself very content with the 22, for the time being at least.

Either way kudos to you for just being able to manhandle that thing into place!

I actually shopped around for one a while back, I understand the IQ is second to none, but between shipping costs, no offered warranty etc, I gave up.
