Its a good deal and was tempted by the first post on this but Quidco is not garunteed
#2
I can see this working well as a TV/media centre screen, but it seems a less good choice for a monitor as it takes up a lot of space on your desk but does not have that many pixels. I use a 24" one that shows significantly more pixels.

True but even without the Quidco its still £50 less than their normal selling price and Currys. I've been debating with myself whether to go for this or wait till the new year to see if there will be better offers on...

I found this a few days ago and recommended it to my brother who wants a TV for his 360 and double up as a monitor. This is perfect for a small room if a little big.

Bought one straight away, just kicking myself that I didn't think to post it as this may get some heat :(

What is the 24" monitor you have? I was going to purchase this primarily for use as a monitor and also for 360 gaming. I liked the look of this because it has a good range of connectivity options with it.

I assume he is talking about a 16:10 monitor, with a native res. of 1920x1200 (120 * 1920 more pixels). The 'problem' with a 16:10 monitor is that pretty much all HD media will have black bars at the top and bottom, in order to account for the taller aspect ratio of the monitor (compared to the 16:9 aspect ratio of the content). This includes 360 games. Also, I'm not sure if the stability of the 360 output suffers when you ask it to add the black bars to the 16:9 image (by setting the res. to 1920x1200 in the 360's video settings). I read somewhere about more tearing or something when doing this, but that might not be true.

Basically, it's best to work out what aspect ratio you will use the majority of the time. If the screen will mostly be used for PC work, you could argue that 16:10 is better suited. If it will mostly be use for media, then surely a 16:9 screen is the best bet.

Good luck.

You'd have to be mad to go for this if your primary use was as a monitor or viewing HD content (such as console games) when you can get an entry level IPS monitor like the NEC EA231WMi for not much more. It might be good deal if you need to watch lots of SD content such as freeview TV on it though.

Yeah, but most decent monitors will apply their own black bars to a 1920x1080 signal so even if the xbox is incompetent with that it only matters if you're going for a cheap screen that might not.

I think "you'd have to be mad" is a little strong.. The monitor you mentioned is over £300 but only 23", if you want the extra screen size (and have some external speakers to add as I'm sure this one has ones that make you want to cringe) then you could definitely do worse. The SM2333HD 1080p Samsung "DTV" has been a good compromise for a while between TV and monitor and suits my gf very well. That is a 23" and now you can have 4 more glorious inches for only another £60 ;) It's been discussed here: http://www.avforums.com/forums/lcd-tv-should-i-buy/1127682-anyone-got-tv-lg-m2762d.html

Normally I think the bars are added to 1080p being viewed on a 1200p monitor.

For monitor use the resolution is much more important than size and they're both 1920x1080. For non-monitor use you do get a slightly larger screen with this but from the given viewing angle this looks like a TN screen so the picture off-centre will be a lot more distorted (dimmed and/or tinted) than on a VA or IPS screen like the NEC I mentioned which may make the slightly smaller size a worthwhile trade-off.

1080 is a bit low for it.


What!? 1080P is like the highest HD resolution for a TV. You can't get higher unless you go for a monitor. 1080P is used for 50" TVs I think it's plenty for a 27" ;-)

Yeah I know what you're saying about the resolution and screen type. I use a 2 year old DGM 24" PVA screen and it's worlds apart from the TNs around at the time. I'm trying to find one for a mate who needs one for a mixture of PC use AND TV/HD. Trouble is I know he's going to be using it as a PC the majority of the time (mainly using Word) but there will be a fair bit of TV/HD too. My gf and parents both use a Samsung SM2333HD which looks like a 23" version of this screen as far as I can tell. I'm writing on this Samsung now and the text does look a little non-defined (but strangely when connecting via VGA as opposed to HDMI/DVI it looks better?!) So basically yes I'm trying to find a monitor for my mate, he wants as big as he can go, about £300 budget which he can watch TV on too if possible. Would you say this or is there a better alternative for the budget?

Can anyone who's invested in one of these tell me if it has a real off button, or is it a standby only off?

He only fixes LG television or does he fix all makes? If he fixes all makes it's his opinion that LG are the worst of all makes in terms of reliability? If he only fixes LG televisions then he has no comparison since he's only fixing LG televisions, and since he's solely an LG television repair man it should not come as a surprise he gets to fix LG.

I'm not being pedantic/sarcastic. I'm just trying to get some more detail.

I disagree, if you get LG, Samsung or Panasonic you're on to a winnner. Anything else and your making a sacrifice in quality.

Sorry I was not clear, he fixes all types/makes of TV's, He finds LG's after a couple of years develop faults, they can be anything from just stopping working, picture deterioration, etc, etc and he gets them in for repairs often. The leasts often he sees for repairs are panasonic and of course the very dear pioneer. PM for more details I do not want to upset any LG/Samsung/Sony flat screen owners! I am only trying to help people!

Can anyone give a very brief breakdown on

VA
IPS
TN

what are these types of monitors and how do you identify them in shops/websites?

There's plenty of guides to panel types around the web but in quick summary:

TN - is the cheapest and most common type of LCD. It can only show 262,000 colours out of the 16.7 million that a computer/DVD/STB, etc, can put out. The missing colours are simulated by dithering or 'frame rate control', ie flashing between two colours very quickly hoping your eyes will see a shade somewhere in the middle. As you'd guess these shenanigans are not good for picture quality.

The second big problem with TNs is viewing angles. They're so bad that even sitting directly in front of the screen colours will distort toward the edges and corners of the screen. Put up a solid blue image, for example, and a TN will show it as a whole bunch of shades of blue and purple. You can identify a TN very easily by looking at the screen from below, the picture will invert and turn black. On the web TNs are usually listed as 2ms or 5ms response time and 160/160 or 170/170 viewing angles.

VA - fixes most of TN's viewing angle problems, although it has the issue that the image may seem a little darker from straight ahead than to the sides, which can irritate some people. VA panels are very popular in better TVs because they have outstanding contrast and very deep blacks. Put a VA TV next to a TN and it looks like the TN is broken. VA screens will usually be specced as 6ms or 8ms response and 178/178 viewing angles.

IPS - has the best viewing angles and colour stability of all the panel types, but doesn't quite have the high contrast 'punch' of VA so IPS screens tend to look a little more muted than VA. IPS panels are getting increasingly popular in better quality monitors because the image is so stable. Specs on the web are similar to VA so it's not always possible to tell the panel type at a glance.

Might be due to the fact that LG screens probably out sell Panasonic and Pioneer numerous times over.
Go into any electrical store in UK and they are littered with LG and Samsung, limited Panasonic's and Pioneer (if they are still making Plasmas etc....)
At a guess I would say more Fords breakdown than Saabs lol

would you guys recommend this or the samsung b450

I know the b450 is only 720p but what do you guys think is better

Sony and LG are about the same.

Samsung and Panasonic are way better though.

Simple answer: Tat is much easier and cheaper to sell and buy than something that is quality. Pioneer make the best TV's you cannot buy a half decent one for less than £2k. And yes Saab is a much better motor than Ford LOL! When you buy something that is cheap in electronics you also buy the uncertainty to how long it will last.

What are you using it for? I have the LG M2394D, which is basically the 23" version and it is absolutely fantastic, I use it as a TV, Computer Monitor and with my Xbox (original). I'd definately buy it, nice 3 year warranty aswell.


Just for standard def sky, its for my mum,

Any chance you have hooked this up to a 360 (via vga/rgb) or have used it as a monitor? If so could you give some details about picture quality? Cheers :thumbsup:

Mine arrived today and I'll be testing it with Mac/PC and 360 Later, but all HDMI.

The warranty on this is one year I believe and Ebuyer are offering an almost identical TV (the brightness is higher on ebuyer's but the contrast is lower) with a 3 year warranty for 40 squid more so that's worth your while thinking about.

I should bloody hope so at that sort of price and extra £100 and you can get a plasma.

Of course that's your opinion the Samsung's look just as good as the Sony's but the prices put them over imo.

Either way get 1 of the 4 brands and you've got a decent TV. Anything else is generally speaking, rubbish.
