anybody know if this dvi cable will work with it? http://www.amazon.co.uk/Belkin-DVI-Digital-Single-Link-Cable/dp/B000067RLQ/ref=cm_cr_pr_product_top .
its £2 on ebay, Item number: 160509831946

thanks mate, was just worried that a single link DVI cable wouldn't work in the dual link DVI port. will i still get 1080p aswell?

The cable is not compatible. The monitor is specified as having DVI-D input. A DVI-I cable contains an extra 4 pins for analogue VGA whereas the DVI-D input does not possess the extra 4 pins so the cable cannot be inserted even though the DVI signals are compatible. You need a DVI-I to DVI-D cable or a DVI-D to DVI-D cable. Single link DVI supports 1080P by the way.

EDIT: If you want to buy that cable, it may actually be a DVI-D cable. Looking at the pin layouts it does not appear to be DVI-I and the seller may be falsely selling it as a DVI-I cable unless the picture is incorrect. To summarise, a genuine DVI-I to DVI-I cable will NOT fit. A DVI-D cable at one end and DVI-D/DVI-I at the other end (depending on your graphics card) will be suitable.

Speaking to you all from the other side of this monitor, good price :)
I'm kicking myself for not getting the 24" model though.

Had my eye on this for awhile now, waiting to see price reductions pre-Christmas; not going to get much lower than this.


Planning on getting 2 and one of these:

I think you are confusing LED backlit monitors with OLED display panels which won't be found in computer monitors for years.

Cable is good. I'm not sure if the monitor comes with it though. I recently bough a iiyama prolite which had both a DVI and VGA cable. These guys should be able to confirm:

i ordered the cable from ebay. it is item number 160509831946 was £2 delivered. it has 4 pins in the middle missing but doesn't have the 4 pins by that flat slot thing in the cable. my graphics card is a radeon 4870, should it work? if not, what is a cheap cable that will?

my monitor arrived from aria today so anybody who needs info, just PM me.
BTW, it does NOT come with a DVI cable, just VGA

Hence, DVI-I plug will NOT fit into a DVI-D socket. The retailer's specifiy the monitor as having DVI-D input and the OP has bought a DVI-I cable (although it looks like DVI-D in the picture). It isn't just dependent on the GPU but also on the monitor's input and the extra 4 analogue pins of of DVI-I will NOT fit a DVI-D socket.

Similarly dual link DVI plug will not fit a single link socket.

Of course, retailers' specifications may well be incorrect and I the OP should really ask the eBay trader to confirm the specifications of the cable being purchased too.

So can anyone who has already got this monitor say what DVI connection it has? I would expect it to have female DVI-D, but single or dual?

I am surprised the monitor's input is a dual link input, given the maximum resolution of 1920 x 1080. A single link DVI-D is sufficient so I don't understand the rationale behind this. Are you sure it is a dual link input? If it isn't and you've bought a dual link cable, then that cable will not fit although it would be signal compatible.

If you buy a single link DVI-D cable, then that is all that's required. A dual link cable will offer no advantage because the maximum resolution of the monitor is specified as 1920x1080. Furthermore, I suspect the monitor has a single link DVI-D input so a dual link DVI-D cable will not be pin compatible. However, it has been mentioned earlier than the monitor has a dual link DVI-D input but I am not entirely sure of that. Whether it is dual link or single link, you are best served using a single link cable since it is pin compatible with both types and as I mentioned, a dual link cable offers no advantage for this particular monitor.

I only have a free hdmi output port on my card - can I get an hdmi to DVI-D cable that will work this this?

Yes, they are relatively commonplace. They will always be DVI-D and I recommend the more common HDMI to single link DVI-D.

yep, almost certain it was dual link DVI-D. i think they use it just because it is the newer technology maybe?

It isn't newer technology and there's absolutely no reason for it on a 1920x1080 monitor. I am most surprised that it features a dual link DVI input. How did you find out?

I've little doubt that HDCP is supported although BenQ's site does not appear to state this. Once again, if it is mentioned that HDCP is not supported I would be just as surprised as the above statement that dual link DVI sockets are used.

I have used its predecessor (G2220HD) which used a single link DVI socket that fully supported HDCP. This model should not be any different and if I was buying it I would be confident enough to assume HDCP compliancy. I don't know why the user manual makes no mention of this.

PC Pro's review confirms HDCP compliancy (it had to be, being based on the G2220HD model)

Very interesting and it is a dual link connector, indeed. The signal will be a single link signal, I'm sure but I believe they have fitted a dual link connector with some unconnected pins for those with dual link cables.
#36
ye thats probably the case. the dual link connector can take dual link and single link cables, whereas the single connector could only take single link cables. make sense for benq to make it dual link then :)!

very nice

Is this the 24inch model ?
