Hey guys. I am looking to buy a new (cheap) monitor very soon (like 2morrow). I came across this 22" Envision G22LWk on sale at CompUsa for only 210$ after rebates. I know the color quality isnt perfect and the built in sound sucks (but i wont be using it). My friend has this monitor and it looks quite good to me. Is there any reason I shouldnt buy this?

Envision? Never heard of that brand. But if your friend doesnt have any problems with it and it looks nice then go for it. Otherwise I would reccomend Viewsonic

I got my 20.1" for $180 from Newegg.

SCEPTRE X20-WG 1080P 20.1" Widescreen DVI LCD. (Click Link)

It has a 5ms refresh time, 1680x1050 res, 300cd/m2 brighness, and a 1000:1 contrast ratio. I wasn't sure about the brand, but it was the cheapest 20.1, and i'm happy to say its a great screen.

I got it. A 22" Envision monitor. I have to say its REALLY nice. I do have one issue tho. Windows XP only recognizes a 1600x900 resolution. Its native is supposedly 1680x1050. Is there any way I could fix this?

Just make sure the refresh rate is decent.
