Default Prices for LCD Monitors

Here my dilemma... currently I have a 19" flat panel, but I want a 22" for dual displays. Should I wait till Blackfriday to get one, or do you think the prices will go down in a couple of months ?

Prices don't really change much for LCD monitors, but Black Friday might have some awesome deals. Then it would depend if you have the patience to wait. Dual screen isn't a need, so I suggest you wait.

Well i got a 22 widescreen that i just cant get enough of, its the samsung 226bw. I got it for 300, and it has 2ms response (best for gaming, to stop ghosting) 1000:1 contrast (amazing) the only bad thing is if you have a totally black screen there is a tiny bit of bleedthrough, but unless your watching movies all the time in the dark and hate it, youll probally not mind (i dont)
good luck on prices and chooseing

i had the same problem as you. I was looking at the same monitor that taintedplay has (226bw) for a while. i was all set to buy it, then samsung decided to come out with the 216BW. It's a 21.6" widescreen monitor, same design as the 226BW, but about $60 cheaper. And let me tell you, it's an awesome monitor.
