UPDATE: We've got the unboxing and initial (disappointed) impressions right here.

The list of products attempting to undercut the premium-priced Wacom Cintiq line of tablet monitors keeps growing.
But those inexpensive products look like luxury items compared to this forthcoming model from Monoprice.com, which lists for only $390.
Thanks to reader Justin Davis who notified me about this new product. Here's what the Monoprice website has to say about its features:
- 1440x900 resolution
- 5080 lines per inch (lpi) resolution
- 2048 levels of pressure sensitivity
- 200 RPS report rate
- 160° horizontal/140° vertical viewing angles
- Rechargeable pen-stylus
- Angle adjustable stand from about 10 ~ 80°
- Compatible with Windows XP and later, Mac OS X 10.4.x and later
Normally I'd be very skeptical of this product, but I've had a lot of success over the years with Monoprice's rock-bottom priced cables and video switchers. Pen tablet expert Ray Frenden has also positively reviewed Monoprice's line of low-cost Huion tablets.
According to Frenden, Huion employs UC Logic digitizer technology, which powers the Yiynova MVP22UHD. I looked on the UC Logic and found this MJP19U model, which offers the same specs as the Monoprice product but features slightly different styling.
We should know how well the tablet monitor performs soon enough. It is scheduled to be available December 9.
Will you be getting one?
