I agree, looks like a good bargain, however, I can't find any other reviews apart from http://www.hollowshrine.uni.cc/forum/index.php?topic=1284.msg13689

Average brightness and refresh rate for a modern monitor. Contrast ratio is good. I have used a Hanns-G and it wasn't bad. I have an HP L2045w which is an inch smaller and cost me the same money. The contrast ratio is only 500:1 on mine and it is fine for pretty much all applications.

The big and I mean BIG difference is the build quality. My HP (and I'm not a fan of HP normally) is absolutely fantastic. I can't emphasise that enough. I actually couldn't beleive how good it was when I took it out of the box.

My point here is you get what you pay for and if I were looking for a new monitor at the minute I would definitely be looking for the brand names that we all know. Samsung, LG, HP to name but a few. You may pay a bit more than this and although I haven't had a good look around at monitors lately I know that you can pick up Samsungs at present at less than £200. I appreciate that £50 is a big difference but if you use your PC as much as me then you'll want to spend the extra on the bits that you interface with.

To round up and stop rambling I would suggest that this is a good deal for a cheaper brand monitor and with a 3 year warranty its very good value. So it gets a hot vote. But if you are buying a monitor for long term use and want swivel screen and real quality, go for a better brand!!

This is a good example of the alternatives with 5000:1 contrast ratio and the trusty LG label at £166.04 from ebuyer. I am not sure if they supply this with free delivery?

Yep the glossy HPs do look great, if I didn't have a 24" iMac and I still used a PC tower I'd probably go for an HP W2207.

Same company that make the hannspree TV's, looks like a good deal to me with DVI and HDCP compliance.
#9
darn edi, you personally cost me a small (albeit cracking-value) fortune!

no seriously, nice spot, ordered ;-)
#10
Looks like a decent cheap monitor.
But the resolution isn't any different than most 20" monitors.
I'd go for a smaller screen with the same resolution, it looks better.
#11
...update! just about to checkout and saw another HannsG monitor - same price, slightly different spec, the model is HG216DP and now i dont know which one to get...

can any panel guru give me an insight as to which might be better or the benefits of the differences???

cheers! dan

Here's the main differences from what I can tell:

Inputs
[COLOR="Red"]HI221D: 1x VGA, 1x DVI[/COLOR]
[COLOR="Green"]HG216DP: 1x VGA, 1x HDMI[/COLOR]
(Many cheap DVI < --> HDMI adapters on the market so this doesn't alter much. HDMI possibly coming out on top because it carries HD sound too. DVI carries the image only. Depends if you plan to hook up a dvd player/games console/sky etc.)

Screen size
[COLOR="green"]HI221D: 22" (55,88 cm) Wide[/COLOR]
[COLOR="red"]HG216DP: 21,6" (54,86 cm) Wide[/COLOR]

Speakers
[COLOR="green"]HI221D: 2x 1.5w[/COLOR]
[COLOR="red"]HG216DP: 2x 1w[/COLOR]
#13
cheers magic_monkey, thats what i had scoured, still dont really know which one is better or which would be best for which use???? any thoughts?
#14
are dvi or hdmi both here to stay or is it envisaged that both will stay for the long-term?
#15
Yea HDMI (image & audio) and DVI (image) are going to stick around for a while. They're going to be replacing SCART (image & audio) and VGA (image) connections.

If I were to choose, I'd go for the DVI. Having the HDMI to transmit HD audio signal and outputting it though tiny 1w speakers is going to be pointless. I'd rather use my own speakers though a normal 3.5mm or stereo line-in connection.

Did you swap the colours half way through to throw ppl off? :p
Nah seriously thanks for taking the time to list these. Very helpful. I think they are very similar. Most people using this for gaming would have a separate speaker set up anyway.
#17
Just want to add that its available for £141.89 delivered on tekheads.co.uk
http://www.tekheads.co.uk/s/product?product=608090

This is a good example of the alternatives with 5000:1 contrast ratio ....



No LCDs have that high contrast ratio, it's impossible (good is 1000:1). They're maybe referring to "dynamic contrast ratio", which is a completely meaningless con trick some LCD HDTV sellers use.

Anyway, I have the HG216D, and it's a nice piece of kit, very sharp text compared to my last monitor. Not superb for movie viewing because of the lack of contrast, but then all LCDs are poor there, and 22" is too small to watch movies on anyway. The HDMI/DVI thing is basically irrelevant, because you can buy adaptors for a few quid - however if you want to play Bluray/HDDVD, then it's good to have HDCP (you need it for any digital video connection. although you can bypass it by using VGA).
#21
I'm writing this post using this monitor (had it just over a week) and it's excellent.

Nice colours, good contrast, excellent on games (just finished a bit of s.t.a.l.k.e.r only a few mins ago :-D) no dead pixels so all in all a very happy camper. As for build quality it's just as good as the HP monitor it replaced, very sturdy and nicely put together. The one negative thing I have to say about it is that there's very slight backlight bleed at the top and bottom, but it is very slight and you can only see it on jet black screens and only then just. It's no worse than my Dad's new Samsung TFT and that was about £80 more!

The specs are the same as the Hanns-G monitor? Well apart from that they quote 5000:1 contrast which is total nonsense as they a giving Dynamic contrast which basically means the number is next to useless.

Hey guys

Soz for the first post being a question.

Have been scouting for deals but you guys get there first.

Has anyone tried this with a xbox 360?

I've heard this resolution isn't ideal but it's a big, bargain price monitor
#39
I haven't heard these speakers but you can expect them to be of laptop standard.

you'd be surprised what you can get for under £30 these days
