Default Who can tell the difference?

Ok So i come home today on my birthday to find that my Dad's gift is a $200 IOU Dad gift card on Newegg basically. So i looked on newegg for my favorite Hanns G 19inch Wide that's only 179.99 to find a "New Arrivals" Hanns G 19inch Wide for the exact same price.

From What I can tell the specs are the same but I like the look of the newer one better anyway.

So who can tell me the difference?

I Don't want recommended any other monitors for more becuase my budget it 20 bucks left, i need it for something.

I would compare and review a lot but it's my birthday haha I can be lazy for a day.

The one with 20$ savings.
has a DVI Connection.
Speakers are slightly Bigger.
And has 3 years parts and Labor.

Btw, Newegg does have a Compare feature which is how I easily found these slight differences.

Second link is DVI. Get that one. DVI is much better, IMO.

Edit: Since Ste wants to be such a showoff with his fancy-dancy Newegg comparison; i'll tell you now i noticed the difference just by looking at the title of the item. :P

No, it's the second one, the one with DVI. The new arrival is the better one.

Edit: Whoops, my bad. I thought the second link was the new arrival. Never mind.

What? The new arrival DOES NOT have DVI!!!!

The second one (the one with DVI) has those stupid ugly built-in speakers.... but I know they make one WITH DVI and WITHOUT speakers... I have it.

If it was me, I would get the one without the speakers but with DVI...

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16824254005

but that's just me. Maybe you want the speakers....

p.s. I think it is hilarious that they have to sell the one with the speakers at a lower price... probably because it is so hideously ugly!!!
