Hey Celticsfan,
Welcome to Tech-Forums!!!


The pricegrabber links do not work.

That Samsung 216BW is cheaper at newegg. And if you're located in the US, newegg is one of the best places to buy computer components.
Newegg.com - SAMSUNG 216BW Black-Silver 21.6" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 DC 3000:1(1000:1) - Retail

For the same price as that first Samsung at keenzo.com, you can get this Samsung with a slightly bigger screen at newegg.com:
Newegg.com - SAMSUNG 2220WM Black 22" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 1000:1 Built in Speakers - Retail

Here is another suggestion:
Newegg.com - Hanns·G HW-223DPB Black 22" 5ms DVI Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 1000:1 Built in Speakers - Retail

Ok, the first 3 links are dead but samsung always makes a good monitor. Personally I would go with that one.

Out of those, the Sceptre has the better specs. That's actually my same exact monitor. But I don't think it matches the quality of brands, such as Samsung or LG.

So I would suggest going Samsung. Like:
Newegg.com - SAMSUNG 2220WM Black 22" 5ms Widescreen LCD Monitor 300 cd/m2 1000:1 Built in Speakers - Retail
