The only problem is that you can still find those monitors used and at times new with VERY low price tags. I picked up a 1280x1024 for $20 at my local thrift store. They always have 1-3 for sale at any given time (CRT's as well, but I'm talking flatscreens). If they were to offer it at nearly no cost, it might pass the bar a bit more but I highly doubt they'll do that. Other than the auto-adjust and viewing angles, nothing special about it.
