Looking around over the weekend, prices on the low end seem to be
comparable these days. Things labelled "TV" may be a little more
expensive (say $10), but as was pointed out, this is potentially
compensated by them having speakers. They also tend to have a wider
variety of inputs, even at the $99-109 price range (VGA, component,
multiple HDMI, composite and antenna. No DVI, though).
Yes, I know the difference between DVI and HDMI are a matter of
wiring, but the adaptor I picked up last minute for the Raspberry Jam
was $15, which wipes out the price difference between TVs and monitors
Cheaper monitors are available from refurb sites, admittedly.
