NEW YORK -- Causing an online frenzy among shoppers, an apparent glitch on Walmart's website early this morning led to $8.85 listings for items from computer monitors and projectors normally worth hundreds of dollars.

The country's largest retailer was selling a 24-inch high definition Viewsonic computer monitor, an InFocus IN2124 Projector digital projectors and other products, many for $8.85. The projector is listed for $578.89 on Walmart.com and $579.99 on Newegg.com.

As customers shared about the deals on social media sites like Instagram, wondering if the site was hacked, products sold out online in just hours.

A spokesman for Walmart said the company is still scanning the millions of items on its site to see if there are still any technical errors causing price discrepancies.

Walmart assured the media that the site was not hacked.
