Life is complicated enough without getting into hotwater with federal agencies so: TAKE NOTE Many things I review I got at no charge in exchange for an honest review. Consider this as informing you that ALL things I review may have been gotten at no charge. Realistically about 60% but in order to keep things above board just assume that I got the stuff free. Words like, “sponsored,” “promotion,” “paid ad” or even just “ad” are clear ways to disclose that you’re being paid to share information and links so BE AWARE that some of what I write can be described as an AD by the government. BTW I will NEVER say a product is great, super or even acceptable if it isn't whether I got it free or NOT!

Nice 20” LCD Monitor/Nice Price $206.00 with free shipping.
Envision Professional Series G2016wa2 20" Widescreen LCD Monitor - 1000:1, 5ms, 1680x1050, HDCP Supported DVI-D - Black - G2016WA2
A buddy’s monitor died last week. He called for some troubleshooting ideas and after I had him connect it to his laptop and still no picture he decided a 5 year old monitor was due for replacement. I found this one at buy.com and recommended it to him. The three year warranty is pretty standard these days but I still like to insure it is included. It is. He did not pay for expedited shipping and got it next day anyway. He hooked it up and so far he loves it. He loves it even more now that the $30 rebate he got last week is off in June. Regardless, the price is pretty darn good for a nice monitor. However since the rebate disappeared you may also want to look at the BenQ G2000W 20.1" Widescreen LCD Monitor - 1680 x 1050, 1000:1, 5ms, DVI for $194.00 with free shipping. It too has a 36 month warranty but it does not have built in speakers. Both of the monitors seem to their lowest price at buy.com.
