Incredible Deal on the Dell 2005FPW 20.1" Widescreen LCD
After extensive research and comparison shopping, I recently ordered the Dell 20.1" WSXGA+ LCD monitor. It sports an impressive array of features including:

  • DVI, VGA, S-Video, and Composite inputs
  • Height-adjustable, pivoting, rotateable base
  • 4 USB 2.0 ports
  • 300 nits brightness
  • 600:1 contrast ratio
  • 3 year warranty

I had been considering getting one of these for a while after getting used to the 1680 x 1050 resolution on my laptop. Widescreens make multitasking a breeze and look great for multimedia too. But the decisive factor was the price. By combining a number of promotions (which Dell is famous for-- but I'm glad I'm not a stockholder) I was able to achieve the following order:

Current list price: $699.00
LCD monitor sale: - $120.00
Holiday sale: - $144.75
Small Biz coupon - $100.00 (use Dell SB coupon code 63C1JBV4XV1VMD)
FatWallet rebate - $ 8.36
PayPal cash back - $ 5.01
Shipping FREE
TOTAL $320.88

Not bad! But, hurry if you're interested, since the deal expires around 4:00 AM PST Nov. 30. (UPDATE: It seems that Dell pulled the plug on this too-good-to-be-true deal earlier than expected. It'a good thing I had already done my research and was ready to buy...)

I'll post a review after I receive mine and use it for awhile.
