Pointless having HDMI without built in speakers anyway.

Not true, most monitors that have HDMI and no speakers have a 3.5mm port (the same kind as your PC uses for external speakers). So you can just plug some PC speakers into it (which will probably sound a LOT better than the tinny built in ones monitors usually have).

No HDMI is a deal breaker for me, but then I wasn't looking for a monitor to begin with lol.

Still - very good price for a 1080p PC monitor. Can't fault it for what it is at all!

you can use a converter from ebay

hdmi = dvi without sound

Bought one of these a few months back, excellent monitor, would definitely recommend at this price.

I think it's an excellent deal. As it doesn't have built in speakers then DVI is sufficient. A 3 year warranty is the icing on the cake. Hot.

Agreed.

People seem to just jump on the bandwagon and insist anything without HDMI is redundant, but I don't think they truly understand the difference between HDMI and DVI, with the latter still capable of supplying you with high definition video. Motherboards have a line-out jack for connecting speakers so it beats me what all the fuss is about. Granted, it's nice to have audio and video sent through one cable for tidyness, but it's not a necessity.

How does this compare to this one I found at Currys? Same price/sized Samsung

Samsung 21.5"

I think maybe the 3 year warranty tips it for the Acer but any experience would be appreciated

As someone else already said, what's the deal with people complaining about HDMI? It's not a TV!
DVI is pretty much HDMI without sound, and a larger connector.

Glad for the lack of internal speakers, they are always terrible.

Hot :)

I have a 4x2 hdmi matrix in my setup and it doesn't recognise my monitor when it is connected to one of the outputs when connected via hdmi to dvi so it does matter in some circumstances but for virtually everybody else it shouldn't matter at all

I'm not sure this is a better model, the picture doesn't even show a DVI input! (Could be the wrong picture?)

lol I like how everyone thinks, no hdmi pointless monitor. Seriously what planet are you lot from? its under £90 if you want HDMI go spend more money.

The Samsung only has a VGA input!
#22
Have got one too, cracking screen and much better that my 720p laptop.

However I'm tempted to say 1080 on anything sub 27" is probably a waste tbh.

How so?

I have this monitor, it's clear and feels well made. The stand can be wobbly at times when cleaning the screen but other than that it was a good buy. Acer are a stellar company to go with.

I was looking at replacing my old 19" 4:3 with a 23/24" LED monitor (was looking at the 23" LG IPS http://www.ebuyer.com/284103-lg-ips235v-ips-lcd-led-23-hdmi-monitor-ips235v-bn and this 24" Acer one http://www.ebuyer.com/276423-acer-s240hlbid-lcd-led-24-hdmi-monitor-et-fs0he-005), but I've got to say it's tempting to pick up a couple of these and go dual-display instead.

I do barely any PC gaming; mostly web browsing, few non-HD videos, PhotoShop and some music production. Any thoughts (both on the single/dual displays and the models i'm considering) from anyone?
#26
Was considering a monitor and this seemed like a good one for me. bit more than this one but it has a good response time and the cheapest of this quality personally.

I have a 22" ViewSonic monitor running full HD and there is nothing wrong with the resolution at that screen size to my eyes. And it is running with analog input rather than digital, so digital should be even clearer.

I say to my eyes. Agreed that some people may find the text a little small - I say that due to the number of people I see using monitors well below their native resolution.

I must admit, initially I thought my monitor was a bit lacking in sharpness but when I switched to a new PC I found that it wasn't the monitor at fault but the graphics card in the old PC!

Tell that to every iphone 4/4s owner out there (myself included)... Much higher DPI than 1080p at 21".

To people who can't see the point of HDMI. PS3, 360, Sky don't have DVI. If you have a monitor with HDMI, there's no real need to have a TV as well, you can get converters, but if you're wall mounting it, these often don't fit.
My monitor has DVI (which I use for my PC), HDMI (which I use a splitter in for my freeview HD box and PS3) and a VGA (for my laptop).
None of these inputs use the built in speakers on my monitor (cos they're crappy) - they all use my PC speakers.
#29
Can I plug a freeview box into it and use it as a tv?
#30
Why are people complaining about no HDMI. VGA will still go up to 1080 but doesn't carry audio & the signal is analogue. Compare them side by side & tell me you see the difference!

Personally, DVI is far better than HDMI and offers a much higher resolution too!
banned#31
OK people, on a 22 inch monitor VGA = 720p = 1080p. You won't see any difference, I promise! And I speak as someone who has a projector and tested the difference between different resolutions and inputs on a 2.5 meter by 2.5 meter screen - even at that size the difference is negligible, and when you shrink it down a bit in size you can see *absolutely* no difference...and no, I'm not blind or stupid... :-)

I couldn't get my Sky+HD box to work on this monitor. Seems to be a HDCP thing.

This BenQ has better reviews, http://benq.co.uk/products/LCD/index.cfm/page/specifications/product/1156

However the acer seems to be better spec (higher dynamic contrast ratio & less power consumption)
http://support.acer.com/acerpanam/MONITOR/2011/Acer/S220HQL/S220HQLsp2.shtml

Think the Acer is the choice for me any more opinions?
#35
Taken the plunge and ordered a couple of these; I'll let people know what I think when they arrive.

Also same price on the CCL eBay store at http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/200721405094, but with the advantage of getting free 24 hour delivery (but less/no cashback).
#36
Voted Hot and ordered, thanks :)

No HDMI port doesn't mean no HD. The reason why this doesn't have a HDMI port is because it has no speakers on the monitor. A HDMI cable transfers sound aswell as video. Since you don't need sound, why use a cable that transfers sound? A HDMI to DVI cable does the exact same thing as a HDMI cable for this monitor. Can't believe some people say no HDMI so no point. LOL.

It is a big difference in screen real-estate.

Some projectors downscale 1080p signals down to the 720p signal native resolution, so you may see no difference on your projector because there is no difference.

But... 720p = 1280 pixels by 720 pixels, this means 921,600 individual dots which make up the picture.

1080p = 1920 pixels by 1080 pixels, this means 2,073,600 individual dots which make up the picture.

Less than a million compared to over 2 million. There is a diiference, and that is much more significant for a PC monitor where you might be sitting 2 foot from the screen, than with a TV in the living room where 10 - 15 foot is a more likley viewing distance.

And as this is a 1080p monitor, trying to view a 720p signal at a non native resolution would look really horrible, with every other pixel having to do an approximate of the pixels either side of it. Not good.

If you have a 1080p native resolution, then have it set to 1080p. If text or icons are too small, make them bigger, don't mess about with resolution.

Picked mine up from their counter the other day.
A while ago i vowed never to use CCL because they employed arrogant geeks who sneer at you from the comfort of the back of a trade desk. Some of their wares arent fit for purpose either.

Anyway i thought id give them another go only to find im served by some absolute tit who reminded me of comic book store guy from the Simpsons (in his actions not looks).

They act like they are doing you a favour by letting you in their premises and allowing you to spend your money with them.

Someone seriously needs to have a word because its either a **** place to work or theyre employing **** people.
