Dell P2214H 21.5 inch Widescreen LCD Monitor by Dell
Excellent monitor, that I'm using as an extended display for my Dell Latitude E6320 laptop. I couldn't get it to display at full resolution (1920x1080) using a DVI cable, but the included Display Port cable (which I've never made use of before) did enable it to run at full native resolution.
