Looks good, and great hearing about the PS3 / 360 compatability, but how exactly?

Connectivity
VGA (D-Sub) ports quantity 1
Speaker/ headphone/ line-out jack 1
PC Audio in Y

Sure the xbox can use VGA (However as far as i know, won't accept 1080p through VGA...could be wrong)

But the PS3? Have they just failed to add it has HDMI connectivity? I even checked on the site and it doesn't list it. Also it says it's compatible with bluray players etc? If anyone knows and can clear that up it would be great... Thanks!

Slightly cheaper on LambdaTek inc. P&P

Of course it is at this price. This is a 16:9 format instead of the usual larger 16:10 so manufacturers are only releasing cheapy screens to start with to see whether or not it'll take off.

whats the difference between E2200HD / E2200HDA ?


The BenQ models ending in A are analogue (vga) only.

The 360 can output at 1080p on HDMI/Component, as well as 1920 x 1080 via VGA .... :thumbsup:

Has anyone else noticed [url]www.shdtechnology.com[/url] 's website seems to have been only partially setup? It appears to be a convincing front, but nothing else. Try getting an item not linked to directly on the front page. I'm somewhat concerned that it's a fake site with a good deal that's been setup to get credit card details, has anyone else dealt with them recently? Is it the same guys as http://www.shdonline.com/ ? They've got the same number at least... I'm not saying it's a scam but I'm advocating caution... (woo, first post)
#11
This is a very good deal, though EVERYONE should opt for the slightly more expensive HD not the HDA verison.

Great piece of kit, I just went for the Veiwsonic one for 162 delivered, it has the same specs just a bit dearer, both got good reviews, if i had seen this i'm sure i would have opted to save a few quid and get one of these, but the viewsonic is amazing. This one shouldnt be any different..

Ah, must have been my TV. It wouldn't display 1080p through component or vga, but it did through hdmi. Thought it was a bit strange, although my pc would run at 1080p through the same TV via VGA! Thanks for clearing that up.

Also i presumed it did have HDMI as it did list it in the description but the connectivity segment only listed the audio and vga connections.

Thanks might be ordering one for the price!

very misleading but after reading through these posts is appears the models ending in A doesn't support HDMI. And this description covers both it seems, misleading!

Endlesswaves, just saved me from ordering the analgue version there, Thanks!!

How much did it cost you?

Been looking for a HDTV or monitor for ages. Wanna run my 360 and PC through the same one and monitors are a lot cheaper than TV's. This looks good plus it has built in speakers though most monitors don't have good speakers.

I've got a premium 360. How would I be able to get HD gaming with this BenQ monitor? No component, right?
#18
according to lambda-tek the E2200HD only supports up to 1680X1050 whereas acccording to shdtechnology the same model supports up to 1920 x 1080 pixels. Who's telling the truth!?

The Benq website says they both support 1080, but looking at the specs the HD has a DVi socket where the HDA only has vga

Yeah looking at the official site it says max res is 1680 x 1050, which is to be expected for a 22'' i think.

Yup, just plug in a freeview/cable/sat box that does HDMI out. (obviously you'd need the HDMI version of the monitor).

Built in speakers on monitors are apparently rubbish without exception so I'd just plug it into your PC speakers.

It also says it's full HD which is 1920x1080 and that it's 16:9 (which 1680x1050 isn't). I think it's just a mistake in the specs.

I can understand not liking black bars, but what puzzles me is why replace it with something like this? If the matt black bars are annoying surely that glossy black bezel is going to be even worse?
#22
Thinkin of buying this now...not sure about two things though: whether the power lead is separate and standard UK 3 pin one so I won't need a PC to run this. And also warranty.
#23
To clear up,

The viewsonic is 160 ish plus delivery at micro direct, dabs etc.

BOTH the viewsonic and the BenQ HD (NOT THE HDA) have a HDMI, DVI and D-SUB connections.

BOTH are 16:9 and support FULL HD @ 1920 x 1080, unlike the usual 16:10 monitors that are only 1680x1050.

These 16:9 versions are what you need if you do not want stretching and want full HD on your 360 or ps3 (game dependant on ps3)

As they are only 22" with full 1920x1080 the picture is immensly crisp when you compare it to say a 37" or above.

As they have speakers you can get sound from only using the HDMI cable if yo like, but the speakers are not very powerful but are very clear and great if you dont want a surround sound etc. But most will just use an audio dongle on their 360 plugged into their pc speakers/surround sound kit.

The viewsonic actually has an AUDIO OUT as well as an AUDIO in, so you can get the sound from the HDMI CABLE Then hook it off to your pc speakers etc without the need for the 360 audio dongle or a modified av cable (modified so it fits in with a HDMI cable plugged in at the same time)

Viewsonic VX2260wm is the model number of the viewsonic, but most may not like the extra price, I prefer the look of mine, and the features. but thats preference.

Yes - just plug your source (Freeview, Sky, Whatever) into it's HDMI port.

There's no difference between a "TV" and a "Monitor" - as long as your display and source support the same resolutions and connections (HDMI at both ends is the easiest way to verify this for the none-technical...), then you can interchange at will :thumbsup:
#25
excellent, thanks for clarifying

There's plenty of differences, for a start you won't find a TV with this resolution under 32". You are correct that they're interchangable but neither will do both jobs anywhere near as well as two dedicated screens.

Absolutely - those who have tried component and VGA at 1080p with their 360s have had mixed results. For Component, it's only if your TV supports 1080p over component. It's not a gimme that every 1080p will do this however.

The VGA thing is a little weird - I understand the 360's VGA is not anywhere as near as comprehensive as a PC graphics card. Even if your TV Manufacturer states 1920 x 1080 (or in my case, 1360 x 768) as a valid VGA resolution, the 360 may not necessarily output at the right frequencies. It's a 'suck it and see' scenario...

That's the E2200HDA.

Says due in 3-4 weeks. Can't find it anywhere either.

3-4 weeks...Pretty long time. I read a review somewhere about this monitor though. Said to maybe avoid if you're a gamer. And that's main reason I wanna get this, for gaming. Although elsewhere I didn't hear anything bad about the monitor. Anyone come across anything similar?

Edit: Thinking of getting this one now: LG W2252TQ. Looks good for gaming, although it won't have the high res the Benq would have.

I opted to wait for the benq...but the one you got seems pretty similar, slightly more expensive though.

The BENQ looks fantastic hooked up to my 360......:w00t:

What do you mean by game dependant, will all the ps3 games work ok with this moniter?

Also, would the Benq HD connect to an Xrocker gaming chair ok? (Basically a chair with speakers).

Oh, and could someone please confirm for me that both lamba-tek.com and shdtechnology.com are both safe and reliable?

Thank's... (First post :D)

Your 360 connected to this monitor with VGA? You using it for your PC too?

What's the sound like?

KVM switch connected to E2200HDA.
PC and 360 share connection.
Both get excellent pictures. The 360 looks great.
Using a cheap 2.1 set of external speakers......sounds fine.
For just over £120 I'm really happy with it. My 360 doesnt have an HDMI output anyway, so I'm not missing much there.
