after the MIR its a pretty good deal, and its a samsung so you dont have to worry to much.

You might be able to find the same thing cheaper if you look around, newegg isnt the only site

edit:

I hate MIR's, idk about you...

ClubIT Product - SAMSUNG BW Series 22" 5ms 280 cd/m2 700:1 DVI Black Widescreen LCD Monitor with Height Adjustments Retail 225BW

Here you can get it cheaper then off of newegg with no MIR and better yet... clubit has no tax so it will probably end up cheaper...

The 226BW is supposed to be the best 22" monitor around.

Not sure about that 225BW that Drizzt5 linked at ClubIT... but the stats are worse... so I'd make sure I got the 226BW.
