Dell 2209WA 22" e-IPS LCD Display Monitor - ~$212 + Tax + Free Ship - *UPDATED MAR 19* - STILL ALIVE
This new display is getting rave reviews on HardForum.com (Link Here to 25 page+ thread on it! ). It came out in January 2009 and is significantly better than TN type monitors (which is the vast majority of 22" screens at the moment).
1. Enter Dell Live Chat
2. Say you are interested in The UltraSharp 2209WA Display (Dell Part Number 320-7825).
3. Say you were previously offered the same monitor for $200 but couldn't purchase it right then and there. You should get an offer of around $210 or $215. (Thx SniperSheep and Brodyhill!)
4. If the site is getting hammered, don't be afraid of the error message. Just keep trying, you'll get in eventually (thx SniperSheep!)
5. If one sales rep doesn't give you the deal, KEEP TRYING. Different sales reps will give you different prices. Read the latest comments to see which reps are giving good prices.
NOTE - i'm not sure but it may help to mention that it is for your small business.

Method 3 - updated to use "FOR BUSINESS" as reason for purchase
1. Call Dell Small Business @ 1-877-279-7897
2. Get on the phone with a customer rep and say you're interested in UltraSharp 2209WA (Dell Part Number 320-7825)
3. Say it is for your small business (NOT PERSONAL USE) and your friend purchased the display for $200.
3. Be prepared with your business name and what industry your business is in (I highly doubt that they will double check this...). Some people confirmed a price of roughly $215 while others are getting quoted at $250~260.
Method 4 - NEW as of March 13, 2009 - $223 + Free Shipping + Tax (Thanks to Ron21 for mentioning this deal!)

More info on display
- THIS IS NOT A TN Display. It is an e-IPS display, which has higher quality for colors and viewing angles. You can find lower priced TN displays but this eIPS monitor is visibly better to the typical user.
- This is a 16x10 screen, NOT a 16x9.
- The stand is a highly versatile stand. 2209WA Stand Demonstration Video on YouTube
- There are 2 USB slots on the bottom left side of the display and an additional 2 underneath.
- THIS IS NOT to be confused with the S2209W, which has been around for some time and is a lower quality TN model.
- THIS MONITOR DOES NOT HAVE 1:1 SCALING. 1:1 scaling is for people who want to play old games, but i'm not sure HOW old. All games I play are from the last few years and have no problems. Its also apparently for people who want to play old console systems on their displays. I am playing TF2 and there is no problem with scaling. I don't understand this completely so plz google for more info.
- With my order I received "3YR Limited Warranty Monitor, Advanced Exchange". Someone on HardForum stated that they got a monitor that was damaged and Dell sent them a replacement for free. All he had to do was put the damaged monitor in the received replacement box and send it back (with free prepack shipping label). So no costs for returns.

P.S. - sorry if i over hyped the product, but I spent a lot of time researching this and am really excited about getting it! Yes i know there was a thread on this already but it didn't describe "how to get the deal" and just said "to call". The OP never responded to people so I had to do all the research myself. : (
