Fantastic spec. Nominal price of £227.95 (though as it's new it can't have been sold at that?). Good reviews on dell's website, but it is a TN panel so not going to be spectacular.
#10
TN Panel?....sorry ...another question...but looks good...hot
#11
It's the type of liquid crystal used, TN stands for Twisted Nematic (It's to do with the conformation of the liquid crystal molecules), it's cheaper to produce and is used in cheaper displays. There are some concerns about how well they reproduce colour, etc., but are fine for general use for a lot of people.

I think this has a Truelife display, so it's brighter.

would this be suitable for using with an xbox via vga, or any other method for that matter

Yes.... I have used an XBOX through VGA but the quality is not that good.

wow...this offer looks hot.....+ webcam and etc features....amazing... thanks
#16
Only 1 HDMI not 3 according to the PDF broucher :x (easily confused with USB ports!!):thinking:
#17
Just to clear up the OP's post so it doesn't misleed anyone the panel only has ONE hdmi input along with the dvi and vga inputs

Must have used a ****** monitor then? It depends on the monitor, as quality wise, VGA and HDMI are pretty much neck and neck in visual quality for the Xbox.

I think the xbox is only capable of outputting 1280x720 (or 1920x1080 but thats higher than this monitor). Since the res of this monitor is 1680x1050 you are going to see scalling up and it'll probably be a bit blurry. I would suggest a 24" at 1920x1080 if you are going to be using an xbox on a monitor instead of a TV. Here is one for £270 and meant to be good.

If i was to spend £270 on a monitor i would want it to be better than GOOD.
#21
Thanks, ordered one. Is it likely that this will come with a DVI cable?
#22
Unfortunately, you don't really have any other choice 1080p wise in the £270 bracket.

This has Truecolour which I dont think is the same as TrueLife.

nice resolution there but quite a chunk more expensive and not as many connectivity options!
#25
Can anyone confirm the amount of each connection type it has. I'll change my title and description so it doesn't mislead anyone if I was wrong. I thought it had 3 hdmi's and 4 usb. I got the info for my post from here:

I've changed my title and description to reflect the fact that it has 1 hdmi port, not 3. I hope I haven't spoiled it for anyone. I got my original info from here:

Does anybody know if these monitors are any good, ie. is it worth buying? i remember a samsung 22" a couple of weeks back for about £160.

Thanks.

Don't balme yer! Not your fault:-D

By the way 2 ms response (grey 2 grey) seems a con you think? Probably 6 ms in colour????? unless I'm wrong.:thinking:

Are you talking about the 360 or the original XBOX? I doubt the resolution the XBOX outputs is anywhere near the resolution of this screen and if that's the case it will likely look quite bad. Ironically, the smaller the screen (and the closer to the native resolution of the XBOX) the better the image will look.

id rather have the cheaper 20" at the same resolution but no USB or HDMI on that one *sigh*

I was on about the XBOX

I have played both the XBOX and the 360 via DVI and both are poor!.
A 360 through a composite connection is almost as good as HDMI

has any body any thought on the 24" llyama i posted yesterday yes its £70 more but its full hd and widescreen and its a llyama

Pretty decent considering the features.

I personally don't like TN panels as colour and viewing angles are poor compared to other screen types generally. They are perfectly acceptable for general use. If you put a TN panel display next to say an S-IPS display, the difference is noticeable however.

I'm having to run my PS3 through my monitor via the AV connector block on my PC graphics card (ATI All-in-Wonder) and that does all the scaling for me onto a 1280x1024 monitor. It's not as clear as if the PS3 was actually outputting 1280x1024 obviously but no worse than if it was running on the tv.

By the way if what you actually mean is not whether a console in general can be attached to this monitor but whether it will display an xbox 360 through VGA, yes it will but it will be blurry as the 360 has never supported 1680x1050. You got 1366x768 which is the resolution of a 23-32" HD LCD TV, 1920x1080 for 37" HD LCDs upwards and 1024x768 and 1280x1024 for 15-19" computer monitors.

Edit: read further down and how you meant the original xbox. Not really sure about the original, my guess would be a CRT would be best, unless you can use a similar approach to me with my PS3 above then it would look ok on a LCD as the graphics card will do all the scaling from your PC.

ARRRRGGHHH!!!

I bought one of these the other day for 205 delivered :(, and it was only delivered yesterday!

Great monitor though, and I'm quite happy with it.

Yes it DOES come with a DVI cable, and it has 1 HDMI, 1 DVI and 1VGA input.
Webcam works just plug and play in XP, which is nice :)

OK it's a TN panel but then 99% of 22" screens are.
Its nice, its bright, its punchy, its sharp, and colour reproduction is quite good out of the box, although I've since calibrated mine with the Eye One.
Being a photographer, I was wary about colour reproduction but Im really quite pleased.

Any more questions, feel free to ask :)

Anyway, Dell don't do the same as Amazon do they? (Lower price within 30 days and we'll refund the difference!...I wish)

Just to clarify a few things!

Digital Visual Interface (DVI) is a digital standard introduced in 1999 by the Digital Display Working Group (DDWG). It is designed primarily for carrying uncompressed digital video data to a display. Originally the display was a computer monitor but DVI is now commonly used for television as well. One of the main areas of confusion with DVI is the number of different connectors available, which represent different functionality. There are three main connection types for DVI, DVI-D (digital only), DVI-A (analog only) and DVI-I (digital & analog).

High-Definition Multimedia Interface (HDMI), released late in 2002, is an all-digital audio/video interface capable of transmitting uncompressed streams of data similar to DVI. However HDMI also provides the ability to carry audio signals, in addition to video, as well as incorporating HDCP, which is a Digital Rights Management technology.

So what is the difference? When looking at the differences between HDMI and DVI we find they actually have more in common then differences. They both support digital transmission; they also are based on similar specifications since HDMI was derived from the DVI specification. There are two big differences: HDMI incorporates content protection called High Definition Content Protection (HDCP). HDMI supports audio in addition to digital video. (DVI only supports digital video)

Are DVI and HDMI compatible? Is HDMI compatible with DVI? Since DVI is the predecessor to HDMI, HDMI and DVI are identical as far as video is concerned. Therefore, video backward compatibility exists. However, DVI will not support digital audio. For example, if you have an older DVI connection on your source and a HDMI connector on your display, a HDMI to DVI cable is all that is needed in order to view the video. A separate audio cable (TOSLINK or SPDIF) will be needed to carry the digital audio.

Got this monitor earlier this month with my Dell Inspiron 530s. I would say it is excellent value for the money. The colour is bright and vibrant IMHO. It is almost like a LCD TV sitting on your desktop. Wish I had opted for the TV tuner as well. Love the built in webcam and mic which is also of an excellent quality and very useful for voice chats. Voted HOT.
Regards, Saabu.

I'll ask if the USB ports get turned off when the monitor is turned off, I have a 2407 that does that and its pants...

Bought this with a dell 530 with ati 2600xt card, and wont show an image on the DVI cable, but will via vga, Dell suggest I have the wrong DVI cable, but as the graphics card and the monitor are both digital or analogue in/out capable, a DVI -D cable should work (which it comes with). IF I used a DVI - I cable the only advantage would be the analogue signal being carried next to digital. Otherwise even on analogue connection its a nice screen. Why didnt they colour code the plugs on different types of DVI cable?
