Uses the same panel as the Acer though this has HDMI/DVI which will be a bonus to many.

I just noticed the price doesn't include shipping so if you have a free shipping account with scan it will work out a few quid cheaper there (link).

Also, just a heads up. Overclockers are doing the Samsung SM-245B 24" on offer this week which is pretty similar to the Iiyama but looks a lot nicer, for £311 + shipping.

thanks for that cheers,

I think the Acer one uses the older TN panel technology. Iiyama uses the newer same TN panel as Samsung SM-245B. Nah, Samsung looks better. Iiyama one looks cheap. Waiting for price to drop on the better spec model of 24 TFT. Altho this Iiyama and Samsung SM-245B is a really good bang for buck right now.

Voted cold, purely because now you can get HD TVs at 32" for around £330 which can be used as monitors. Maybe a good price for the item , buit on a larger scale, its not a good buy!

A much much better screen from a better manufacturer. Shame about the supplier?:whistling:

But these cheap 32" LCD TV's at best can only do 1368x768 PC resolution, All these 24" LCD Monitors are designed for use with a PC and can do high resolutions up-to 1920x1080. You simply cannot compare a cheap 32" LCD TV against a 24" LCD PC Monitor both are designed for different purposes.

Would you really want to use a cheap (£330) 32” TV that has a resolution of 1280x720 or 1366x768 as a PC monitor? I think you’ll find that even if it works at the native screen resolution when hooked up to a PC, which is not a given, that the font size is rather large.
As a comparison a typical 30” TFT monitor has a resolution of 2560x1600 which equates to nearly 4.5 times the number of pixels whilst using a smaller screen. In other words the fonts on the TV would be about 5 times the size of those on the monitor. Useful if you are viewing from a long distance but otherwise not helpful.

That's impossibly stupid. Please, unless you've got a clue about what monitors and TVs are, and the difference between the two, don't comment.

For the price, this is a bargain.

Iiyama are superior when comparing monitors, but yeah, shame about the supplier.
#13
I've been looking at 24" TFT's for a while now, waiting for some significant price drops.

This is a hot deal as Iiyama is a quality company.


btw 24" panels are already £160-180 in the US so a price drop here is iminent incase anyone is hanging on.
#14
On reading the reviews it seems clear that these cheaper 24” screens (Acer, Samsung & Iiyama) are fine for general PC usage and games but below par for Video playback and graphics work. The Benq and Dell got very good reviews at TrustedReviews especially the Benq which costs over £100 more though. It does have DVI & HDMI both with HDCP as well as D-Sub and component input. Sounds like a great monitor for use with both a PC and for watching HD videos, whether from a PC or stand alone HD video player.

Well your stupid, thats a TV and this is a monitor, that runs at 1920 resolutions, plus it has a 3second response time. You know what they are?

Voted Cold, What is it about this place of late, people are getting worse or is it a case of a load of n00bs voted cold willy nilly.

How about doing something constructive and posting GOOD DEALS instead of merely voting ones cold when they are clearly not and for reasons that you obviously do not understand.

Just because tthey disagree with you it is a hot deal they're stupid? All they were saying was you can get a TV (probably with 5ms) for a similar amount. Lighten up.
#18
Because a TV is not a monitor. The TV will have a poor resolution in comparison to this smaller screen, not to mention TVs aren't designed for reading text and generally using as computer screens. The guy has no idea what he's on about and recommended some cheap LCD which will be overly bright and way too big to use as a monitor, it's a pointless suggestion by him.

Try using anything about 26" as a monitor and you'll see how stupid the guy's suggestion was.
#19
Having built computers for over 20 years I know the difference between a monitor's including refresh rates, resolution compared to an LCD television with VGA input. The fact that televisions now have VGA inputs acknowledges their use as monitors, the quality between this and a dedicated monitor will be noticeable but to call someone stupid for suggesting it is idiotic..... lol. Maybe you should contact LCD television manufacturers and tell them they are stupid to include a VGA input.

The PC inputs on TVs are usually used to hook up a HTPC in a lounge. In that context the large font size is actually helpful. Suggesting that you use a 32” TV as a replacement for a 24” monitor on the desktop is a completely different ball game and not one that many people would find to be satisfactory I suggest.

Try reading the comparative reviews of all the 24" screens at trustedreviews.
#22
That's not the most helpful reply. To save somebody else half an hour's research, the answer is that the manufacturers have started using a new type of TFT screen for these low-end 24" monitors. It's not as good as the old type, but it's ok, and it brings the price down by £100. Even so, £250 for the Acer is cheap.

I'm typing this on the Dell 24" screen, by the way, and I can thoroughly recommend it. I do a lot of work on very large spreadsheets, and this lets me see much more at one time.
#23
Don't want to scare anyone off unduely - As iiyama monitors are pretty good. BUT !!! - We used to buy iiyamas at work - until they went bust a few years back (and were taken over). We started having major returns issues and as i type we have a iiyama H430 sitting behind us that is broken and under the 3 year onsite warranty - it was logged with them about 2/3 months ago and no news on a replacement - the last time this happened with them no amounts of complaints helped and we used to buy hundreds (so you'd have thought it might) - as such if you get an issue remember the contracts with supplier not the manufacturer and take it up with them (not that they will be happy with that).
#24
Thanks for that, Chelsea. I had it in mind that iiyama were a premium firm. I bought several of their truly excellent CRTs about 10 - 15 years ago, at about £500 each for my office, and they worked extremely well for many years.

Then you'd know that someone recommending a 32" cheap LCD over this 24" monitor is an absolute buffoon.

How does building computers help your knowledge of monitors? You haven't built monitors have you?

The quality between a cheap LCD HDTV and a dedicated monitor would be miles, the difference between using a TV for working on and this monitor isn't even worth arguing. PC-VGA inputs are put into TVs for HTPCs, gaming from your lap and component to VGA when there's no component on the television

They simply aren't suitable for use as monitors, not least because of the resolution in comparison to this one.
#26
Stupid and Stupider.

This site is used as a recommendation to people. Now recommending that someone uses a TV as a monitor that they will be sitting 40cm from, is not the correct thing to do. I was recommending a monitor to people, that is both quality and cheap.

To recommend a Cheap LCD TV with a resolution of 1024 x 768 that is 32" wide, with a refresh rate of over 8ms is a disasater for anyone that would buy it.

Now for you to agree, is even worse than his/her recommendation.

Ive built computers for 20 years, What you still building them? You should move on. What has that got to do with monitors.

I just hope no one has listened to you and bought a cheap no-mark make, poor quality TV as a monitor on your recommendation.
#27
The point I was making and you obviously have not the capacity to understand is that you can use an LCD television as a monitor, the quality will not be as good or as close as a dedicated monitor. But for you to be so arrogant as to flame someone and call them stupid for suggesting it reflects more on your intelligence. As I have said before why is the VGA port there? If you feel so strongly about it and you obviously do tell the manufacturers they are wrong, but don't call posters who are only trying to voice an opinion stupid. I am typing this slowly so you can understand it ..... lol. I don't recollect ever having suggesting anyone buys a TV as a monitor, perhaps you can show me any post I have done this.

Brilliant deal, if someone wants an alternative.
Samsung 204b, it costs a little more though.

In the same post "you can use an LCD television as a monitor".

The quality, the type of panel used and the resolution would be bad for doing this. Not to mention how they're designed for totally different things. And again, VGA inputs are for HTPCs for watching media on the TV, for consoles with those outputs and component > VGA if another component port is needed.

You can get severe eye strain from using an LCD TV as a monitor.

The Gateway 24” recently posted here sounds a better deal to me. According to the Anandtech review it supports 1:1 pixel mapping which is useful for hooking up an Xbox360 or a HD Video player over DVI; it supports HDCP of course.

It did seem unnecessarily harsh to call someone stupid for not understanding the significant differences between a 32” TV and 24” monitor. I’m sure that many people don’t understand the difference but it doesn’t make them stupid.
However I think you are barking up the wrong tree with your rebuttal in the sense that no one suggested that PCs shouldn’t be connected to TVs, just that TVs don’t usually make good monitors. The two things are very different so if you continue to push this theme people are going to do what you yourself are doing to others and question your intelligence.
#32
Okay.. you also seemed to think I was thinking he was stupid for the suggestion, and you are more or less more upset with this issue, I said he/she/they where stupid for VOTING COLD for that very reason. To vote cold, because he thinks you can get a TV cheaper, is STUPID. This whole site is based on the HOT / COLD voting system. Anyhow there you have it.

Carry on if you wish and ignore everyone elses commenst towards you. I'll just keep looking for bargains for everyone to share in, which is where this all started and my recommendations shows.
