FRC 8-bit Panel
VGA

dont forget Topcashback / Quidco
about £103.23 (assuming 3% cashback)

AOC has been around making monitors for sometime.
This is not a bad looking monitor, would be quite nice with the acer Revo r3600 / r3610. it has the vesa mounting holes on the back perfect for the revo.

Just a thought*
(this monitor with the r3600 single core = £245)
(this monitor with the r3610 dual core + extras = £305)


The F22S will appeal to everybody who attaches great importance to an attractive model combined with outstanding technical features. Thanks to its innovative small folding base the display can be easily placed on every desk and save space. The navigation ring integrated in the frame facilitates easy adjustment

The display surface offers enough space for large-area presentations and multi-media demonstrations in 16:9 format. The viewing angle of 170°/160° and a high resolution provide for pin sharp images. Absolute color fidelity is achieved by the Dynamic Color Boost (DCB) method.

true, I would probably also go for something with DVI but does it really make a big difference? I use the spare VGA port on my monitors to connect to my second computer and could not notice a difference (wouldnt be able to pick out which computer is on DVI and which on VGA if I didnt know already)

It looks great, i was looking at this and hoping they did it with HDMI/DVI too. But in the end i got the other AOC 23.6" 1080P monitor cos it had DVI & HDCP.
The only reason you might want DVI/HDMI (with HDCP) is if you want to watch films (Blu-Ray) from your PC or use your PS3 on a monitor.

I got 2 of the 23.6" monitors they are both plugged into my PC by DVI, but also i have a 360 plugged into one of them through VGA and also i plug my PS3 into the 2nd one using the DVI slot, so it does come in handy.
#5
I don't know what their TFT's are like, but i've got just too many bad memories of the CRT failures we used to have with them.

They've been around for years but they're not a premium brand by a long stretch.
#6
Some people say that 1920x1080 using a VGA connection is rubbish and so will cool this deal. I have a Samsung with DVI and VGA with a computer running full HD attached to each. Although the DVI is noticably sharper the VGA is still very usable with only marginal softening of the picture.

We use a lot of AOC LCD monitors at work. Generally they are reliable although do have a tendency towards uneven light spread across the display (noticable on dark backgrounds) and image retention (it's not only plasmas that do this). Since this is a much newer model, I expect these issues have been fixed.

So from experience and bearing in mind the price I'd recommend it. So if this fits your budget go for it!

Don't forget 3% Quidco

Looks great just a shame it dosent have DVI. I think its probably more geared towards been connected up to a laptop as a secondary screen?

a second port + DVI would be great :)

The AOC monitor I have is still being use today after 8 years and not a problem, the ccfl has faded a bit but not gone pink.

I probably was :) looks similar to the Samsung USB monitors, most laptops even netbooks have VGA theres only a few I've seen which only have DVI, ones with HDMI usually also come with VGA aswell.

To be honest, I'd much rather buy another Technika 22" LD HD Ready Freeview TV with HDMI connection for £150..

Given that the protective plastic is obviously visible on the right side, i'd wager that line on the left is just more plastic.

VGA analogue, DVI digital, HDMI digital with audio. digital = sharper image. probably best to wikipedia it for full detail :p

VGA is the connection that used to be used for CRTs, LCDs generally look better with a DVI connection (or HDMI, which is the same signal as DVI).
#23
I bought the 23.6" at christmas, have to say I'm very impressed with build quality and image clarity, especially given it was the cheapest 24 inch on the market.
#24
I was curious to know what the difference was between DVI and VGA in terms of picture quality, as there was a Samsung monitor posted here recently with an insanely high resolution that was VGA only. I hooked my 24" Dell up via both to see how image quality is effected. The difference? None whatsoever.
#25
VGA only, too bad would have been good with DVI instead and HDMI, but obvsiously not at this price.
#26
Just a quick question. Do you need dual DVI monitors to run two 1920x1080 together, or will VGA work ?

Obviously with a graphics card that supports dual DVI with VGA converters
#27
No DVI/HDMI and a 16:9 monitor as opposed to 16:10 which is best for PC's. COLD

This deal is more about value for money... not your opinion on how good it is for a PC...

Go post your opinions on a review site where people may give a damn.

So if I find something that's not as good for its stated purpose than something else but my thing is cheaper that makes it a hotter deal? That's just a silly way of looking at it.

It's about finding the cheapest deal for that product. If you found a better product for a cheaper price then by all means, post a new deal.

It's like posting a deal for a game at a great price. No point in saying it's a cra p game as it's your opinion. What actually count's is that it's the cheapest around. Therefore... a hot deal. :thumbsup:

Wrong!!
How good it is for a pc is critical when considering value for money!

Hypothetical example:
There are just 2 places in the world you can buy a particular 16" crt monitor. Here it is

http://static.techwithoutwires.com/techwithoutwires.com/imgname--what_to_do_with_the_old_crt_monitor---50226711--CRT-Monitor-trash-can.jpg:
The cheapest it has ever been is £21 000.
All of a sudden another retailer sells it for £2 100.
You would say: excellent deal- try and find it cheaper!
Common sense says: Not a deal- there are much better options available.

Things which are uncomparable eg GAMES- they are like art in a way- it is a matter of taste not functionality then and a different ballgame, the cheapest price possible is all that counts.

Thank god someone FINALLY gets it on this site. You're completely right about things like games. A game is a game and the lowest price is the deciding factor but with monitors there's resolution, panel type, connections (DVI/HDMI/VGA), aspect ratio, brightness, contrast etc etc to be considered.

Sadly in this say and age buzz words like 1080p make people think WOW this monitor is HD so it must be better than that 1920*1200 monitor over there. 1920*1200 monitors are the best *mainstream* monitors you can get for your PC unless you're using it a lot for watching video/dvd's

I've got an SM2433BW and although you do get black bars when watching iPlayer content or DVD's it's great as a PC monitor which is what it's used for 99% of the time and what I wanted it to do best.

Haha... that has got to be the best use for a CRT monitor i've ever seen.

Back to the subject in question, I believe I may have got the whole idea of this website wrong then. Thanks to the both of you for setting things straight. :thumbsup:

It's just the way I always thought of it is that the "deal" in question is posted because it is the cheapest place someone has found that particular item or of an item with the same specifications.

To a certain extent it is. But there is a place for people who point out that there are better products for the job even if they are slightly more expensive. The problem is that people run around with the attitude of "If you can't find this particular thing cheaper then eff off" rather than trying to reccomend the best product for the person. I personally feel sorry for all the people who are missing that extra line of 120 pixels on the bottom of their monitor but that's just me! Sadly as soon as people see 1080 they open their wallets :whistling:

Think of it like this, you've got a family and 2 kids. If someone posts a deal for a brand new Twingo for 6k or a brand new Megane Scenic for 8k then which deal is hotter for you? :)

Like non-native resolutions the quality of VGA depends on the quality of the converter and with a good one it's virtually indistinguishable from DVI. On my monitor it's rather poor. A lot of people want DVI because it's one less potential problem, and of course it's more likely to be compatible with your next computer as it's newer.

If the graphics card supports dual DVI-I then VGA will work.

That's a silly attitude, while it is annoying that 1920x1080 monitors have largely displaced 1920x1200 ones at higher prices and we're almost all worse off as a result you'd never have gotton one at this price anyway. This is an improvement over the 1440x900 or 1680x1050 screen you'd have gotton a couple of years ago for £105.

Just picked one up from cclonline as near to me and a few quid cheaper. Its a very good monitor even though vga only. Looks nice too:thumbsup:

AOC monitors are very good and even there tvs are good too as I have a 27 inch one and pic is great with hd channels.

The extra horizontal resolution over a 1680*1050 monitor is largely wasted because most webpages won't display any better anyway.....
All I'm really saying is that people are getting slightly cheated and are not getting the best monitor for a PC that's all. I paid a good 80-90 pounds more for my Samsung SM2433BW but at the end of it all I've got something which is better for a PC, nicer looking IMHO and also made by a much better known manufacturer. It bugs me that everything is going 1920*1080 so I really need to get another 1920*1200 monitor for the wifes PC before it's too late.

If I was to pay 80 or 90 pounds more I would get one of these

http://www.hotukdeals.com/item/605525/dell-black-2209wa-22-ips-panel-euro

its a 16:10 aspect ratio (1680*1050)

but it is an IPS panel :) also has a fully adjustable mount, they are very well built.

I had a 27 inch AOC LCD for a while that played PS3 really well... just sold it to my sister to replace for a smaller one as PS3 has moved to the bedroom... She likes it... I think AOC are pretty good quality in my opinion...
