Just collected one of these HP S2031a monitors from the Doncaster store. They had two on display but i picked up a new boxed one from the shelf. It said Not to be sold seperately on the box but the nice lady put it through at that price anyway. Bargain for a brand monitor with decent reviews. Has DVI and VGA inputs and cables are in the box.

Might be worth trying PC World as well but it is no longer listed on either site.

VGA Cable? X)

My guess is this monitor comes with a desktop package, hence the warning not to sell seperately. Bottom line is, there are display models at this price but if you can find a sealed one they will sell it at the same price. Win, win.
Product details here;

I bought it to connect to a 17" HP laptop workstation as an extended desktop. It has the same matte screen so should look good even though the laptop is 1920x1200 and this is 1600x900.

Apparently there are VGA, DVI and headphone cables in the box. Haven't opened it yet to check.

LED?

No, LCD at this price.

Strangely, the cables were all there as expected but no power lead. Best check instore if you buy one but they are just 13amp kettle leads.

Would be great if I could get this but no Currys near here.

This is supposed to be part of a package with PC etc. The power leads are in the PC box and thats why it says 'not to be sold separately. Good if you manage to get one.

This might sound daft but can I use this as a TV? I want to connect this to my virgin media box for cable viewing. thanks

You can't.

The monitor is clearly labelled up as a clearance item on the shelf. There were two left on the shelf and were in excellent condition; you would still get a full warranty. I just used my noggin, spotted a box and took it to the till rather than asking an assistant. I spotted two more boxes under the display so these were for the display items. If it wasn't meant to be sold seperately it shouldn't really have been there with the monitors. I think the sales assistant just wanted to keep the queues moving.

Can't you use an HDMI to DVI adaptor like this?

The monitor is HDCP compliant. If you had a Virgin+ box with HDMI out it might work.

Don't plug in to mains cos I have a feeling it might go bang! check what volts it needs, monitors usually need adapters ;)

No they don't. If the power lead is a kettle type, it is for 220-240 volts, in this country.

Doesn't the computer PSU just pass through the mains voltage without doing anything to it to save loading the psu any more? At least they used to.
