Looks like the Yuraku monitor I have which has a PVA panel. Excellent screen and viewing angles. Not the best looking monitor in the world and no height adjustment. Paid around £200 from Misco in summer.
Don't know if the Scan model uses the same panel or a TN one.
Still great price, heat added.
#2
Brilliant deal! Heat added

How longs this deal going to last for? Just for today?
#3
It is in the "Today Only" section...although I have noticed that quite a few deals in there last a lot longer than 1 day! I guess its pot luck if it lasts more than 1 day!
#4
Its also VESA compatible for anyone that might want to wallmount it

Good deal and voted hot. Scan's today only is exactly what it says BUT it is updated every weekday so friday->monday mid day is going to be the same, its updated around 1pm every day but couple of days ago they had issues with payments so it stayed on later.

Now i just need to get some money :P.
suspended#6
I doubt it as its pretty much half the price of dells but it depends on the model/size etc, if you can afford £250+ then dell is probably better but for less then this wins.

Only £16 difference for dell: http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/255301/dell-s2409w-24-full-hd-monitor-179-

Seems to be a TN panel.

I'm no monitor expert, but this one has a slightly better resolution (1920 x 1200) vs (1920 x 1080). The difference being the Dell has a HDMI socket. I know you can get HDMI - DVI adapters for a couple of quid...but not sure if there is any picture quality difference. Also, is DVI video only, whereas a HDMI connection also includes the sound?

This appears to be a rebranded Yuraku so build quality is going to be quite a way behind the dell.

This is also a repost.

EDIT: HDMI may or may not include the sound (it's optional in the standard so the monitor may not accept it), but monitor speakers are not worth using for anything better than radio.
#11
Oh yes....never saw that when I posted (I did a search for Viewsonic & Scan deals, and couldn't see it!)

Feel free to remove.

Good price but the dell i was refering to was this http://www.scan.co.uk/product.aspx?ProductId=23963 but still, that dell has hdmi which is no better than dvi but is an extra connection :P.

I know lol, im just saying if your going to pay loads then dell is the better but if you are on a lower budget this is good.

TN panels are the normal panels that are more suited for gaming but not so great with films and they tend to have slight blacklight bleed so it affects a viewing experience.

I believe that this is a different shape screen! The Dell is TV format which is 16:9 whilst this is PC format which is 16:10. Thus whilst both are 24" screens this is slightly narrower but has more height.

Why do people keep on doing this? They're different beasts.......
1920*1200 is not the same as 1920*1080 even if both are 24" screens......

LCD technology has different varients and TN is one of those, it's the cheapest and most common, but also lowest quality, one used for monitors, as other varients generally start at £350 on a 24" screen at this price it's not something to worry about.

This isn't narrower than the dell, it's the same 1920 pixel width. As the dell is 24" rather than the 23" you'd expect because of the lost pixels it's probably been enlarged and is physically wider but the difference isn't going to be large and resolution is generally far more important for PC use.

Considering some of the poor reviews the Yuraku PVA version of this screen got (poor black level, banding, dreadful build quality) I would be cautious of this screen, it's possible Viewsonic got the better screens of the batch being a bigger name but the dell is probably a safer bet despite it's reduced size.

Geometry says that it must be narrower. As it is a different shape but with the same diagonal if one dimension is bigger then the other must be smaller. Each pixel on this will be slightly smaller than each pixel on the Dell but there are more of them!

I agree completely that the width difference will be small & that what matters is that the format fits the use.

Does this have a scart socket?

It's a PC monitor, not a TV....

So no, it doesn't have a SCART socket.

I did this because you failed to use my whole quote - which included the fact that someone was comparing this to a dell and said the dell was a lot more expensive.

I pointed out that a dell 24" was not double the price (as implied) but only £18 difference.

I am sorry that I have offended you.
#27
anyone have this and a dell 24" 1080, to compare against, I am wondering which will give better overall image quality???

seems to be some question over 'flickering' and build quality.. also apparently it doesn't support HDCP

And a Direct Link! :) I Hate Trawling for Deals! :x Heat n Rep for him/her :thumbsup:

Sorry but why is this a hot deal? This is a bog standard monitor with yesterdays inputs at a not so god price. I can get a full blown 1366x768 22" panel TV with DVI / HDMI compatability for a similar price?

Sorry but thats a frickin stupid!!!

1366x768 is crapp!

Look this has a massively higher resolution!!!

@ 22" with the resolution you state you'd practically see the pixels if sitting @ pc distance!!!
#33
This is a MONITOR people not a TV! lol...

Its a v.good price for a 24" monitor, I mean damn I just brought a 22" LG for £130 only 4 weeks ago and these monitors are falling like crazy!!! I just saw the Tesco one yesterday - made me cry lol ;)

Pixels have nothing to do with physical size - most screens have a different number of PPI (Pixels per inch) - thus a 24 inch screen with a native resolution of 1920 x 1200 will have a higher PPI to that of a 24 inch screen with a 1920 x 1080 native resolution - their physical (real world) dimensions are however, exactly the same.

Also the difference between the 1920 x 1080 res screen and this one is a height resolution difference not width. With this screen you would see more vertical space on your desktop at it's native resolution than on the Dell screen.

No, the dimensions except diagonal size will be different. The diagonal remains the same due to the lowered DPI on the dell but the horizontal and vertical dimensions are different because of the different shape.

A 3 x 2 rectangle and a 1 x 4.9 rectangle both have a diagonal of 5 but their physical dimensions aren't the same.
#36
I have this and using it as a TV, and its okay. Viewing angles are poor though, which is to be expected from a TN panel, and colours and black levels are very poor compared to my Dell 2407WFP as the brightness needs to be set quite high to see any kind of shadow detail.

So not as good as a PVA panel, but at this price I can't complain.

No, that is a bad example and they are not the same.

The Dell would be 20.917 x 11.766inches and
the Viewsonic 20.351 x 12.719 inches.

Voted hot. Just noticed this is back on today/only at the same price.
