Saw this deal in the Yeading store today. LG W2234S 22-inch widescreen computer monitor reduced to £84.00.

Can't see it on-line so must be in-store only. Don't know if it's local or national, just throwing it out there for you.

15-pin D-sub VGA only (no DVI) but for the price you can't go wrong. Just wish I needed one.

Megamart.

Resolution: 1680x1050

Great price, even if it is a low budget monitor. Shame it is not full HD so.

Thanks for sharing!

well, with the world on the move, I dont think this is a good value monitor. Who ever buys it is gonna be stuck with it for atleast a few years, and HD is everywhere nowadays, you cant miss it. You'll be missing out on alot if you bought this monitor, even if it was for free, would you wanna watch crap on this? or would you prefer HD?? just throw in a few extra quid and you can get HD ready or even full HD monitors nowadays.....needless to say, I voted cold....

Eh? Some people might not actually need HD. What if you need a low cost monitor for a PC for the office? You don't just use these things for watching telly!!!

LG brand. 22". 84 quid. Really can't argue with that. :thumbsup:

True, you might only need it for work, but common lets be honest, who doesnt watch stuff on their computers??? Personally I think buying a monitor or telly thats not HD is a crime. Think about it guys 3D is even out!!!! HD is old school, anything thats not HD or HD ready is antique....

I agree although a Full HD monitor with DVI and HDMI will set you back at least £130-£150, which is a bit more than a "few extra quid"...

This is a 22" FULL HD LG

This is a 23" FULL HD Samsung

This is a 23" FULL HD LED Backlit LG


Unless your budget really can't stretch and you need a monitor right now I would recommend paying the extra for one of those. Decent deals do pop up every now and again.

Then again If you just need it for doing work like bigsky suggests, then this is a perfectly acceptable and capable monitor. Although even If you do go for this.... Good Luck finding stock :thumbsup:

I dont watch stuff on my computer - I have tv's for that. I wouldn't want to watch tv/movie on a 22" when we've got two 32", a 42" and a 47" HDTV for that. Unless of course someone wants to watch things on their own :whistling:

Can you get a quality name HD/3D 22" monitor for £84?

You have to factor in price when comparing things. To vote it cold because it isnt HD is a bit narrow minded. It is a cheap 22" monitor - don't expect it do everything one twice the price does.

Yeah people I know watch stuff, like youtube and streamed catchup TV, but that is not in HD?

All depends what you need it for, seems like a good price for a branded monitor.

Well, some of us arent as fortunate as you, putting aside the price for so much tv's I dont even think I, and many would agree with me, would have the room to accommodate so much and such big tv's. Just out of intrest, what the hell are you doing with so much tv's anyway?

So 'many' tvs

The biggest in one living room, the medium in the other, the two smaller ones in the kids rooms. Theres a dvd/combo in the nursery and a small one in the kitchen. I forgot about the other 32" tv in my bedroom, the projector with seven foot screen.

The kids can play their games without disturbing us, I can watch football whilst the other half watches her soaps. The one in the nursery keeps the littlest happy whilst housework is done upstairs or at bedtime. The one in the kitchen is hardly used as I'm too busy cooking to watch tv. The one in our room is rarely watched.

At least once a week we all sit together and watch a film as a family unit.

There's a lot of houses with 4 or 5 tvs nowadays. With prices so low now it's not extravagant to buy one as a Christmas present - especially when it keeps the kids quiet for so long.

Uh, me. I'm using a basic Packard Bell monitor that's 5 years old right now, but seeing as the computer is connected to a 40" 1080p TV via HDMI about a metre to my left, why would I watch anything on this monitor? Or any monitor?
#13
i got this monitor since last year and i didn't like it until i started using it for gaming.

I cant play MW2 online on TV (40") but using this monitor am on top of the table most of the time.

i don't know why but i play better on small screen.

btw this screen is really good if you not looking for Full HD.

Ah! The modern family! You all get together for one movie a week. Probably one more than most. Good luck!

this is better than HD ready.. its 1050p as opposed to 1080p or 720p. It marginally downscales 1080p stuff to fit the screen. you my friend are a bit thick.

We regularly get an 80% turnout - 100% is a concerted effort though - hence only attempted once a week. It probably isn't the image of solidarity that it conjures up. It usually takes an hour to decide which film we're going to watch unless it's a new one. Then there's the fighting over who sits next to who, who's got one extra sweet/better mix of sweets/more chocolate chips in their ice cream - and that's just the adults!

One thing hasn't been mentioned in all of this. I know my eyes aren't as good as they used to be but I find the that 1080P is too large a resolution for a 22" monitor. So I would say those monitors are not really suitable for general computer use.

I know that Windows does have a DPI scalling setting but there are always some programs which don't work too well with that so I'm forced to run at 96DPI.

A pity that 4:3 monitors are so rare these days. In fact I'd be serious tempted to get one of those monitor stands with two VESA arms and hang two of these 1680 x 1050 monitor sideways for 2100 x 1680 for a 5:4 aspect ratio.

Its technically "high definition" but it cannot be called "HD Ready" without HDMI.

Either way 1680x1050 is an excellent resolution - 1080P is useful for playing blu-rays (which you won't be doing here anyway with no HDMI) or for playing 1080p games by hooking up your xbox 360 or playstation 3.

So are you. There's nothing 'marginal' about downsizing any image. As soon as you throw away native resolution you get interpolation, and that is a bad thing.
#21
This is a great deal. 22" LG 1366 x 768 monitors are still over a ton

I'd personally want 1920x1080 and a digital connection and I'd be prepared to pay for it. But this is as near as damn it HD and cheap-as-chips.

Better than using a 720p LCD TV or 1366 x 768 monitor, slightly worse than a full HD monitor, but realistically nobody would be able to tell the difference anyway :thumbsup:
#22
It's a 1680x1050 which is 16:10 rather than 16:9

I've got an LG 22" with this resolution and it's not bad for PC use but I agree that for some people these higher resolutions mean icons graphics are so tiny it's hard to see what's on the screen.

Voted cold because it doesn't have 4 HDMI ports, Dolby Surround, 2 scarts, HD Freeview, HD Freesat and not 3d ready. :whistling:

Great price for a budget monitor. Most monitors are HD ready, and have been for years - this one is. HD ready is just a fancy word for normal TVs that have only just caught up with the times.

Wow. That's quite a depressing scenario. Television should not dominate lives like that, especially with young children. A 32" for the kids?!

Oh I wish people would just stop jabbering about "hurr durr HD y0". It's a resolution, don't be so excitable about it. It means more in terms of being a TV standard and video quality standard than it does in a PC monitor. CRT monitors were available years ago with higher resolutions than "hurr durr durr durr durr durr HD y0"

And even so, this monitor is 1680x1050 which is a perfectly adequate resolution and not far off the whole "HD y0 hurr durr" resolution.

Do people like you even know what HD actually means? It's a marketing term for a resolution that is not far different from the one this monitor operates at natively. Stop jabbering about "HD" and go learn something.

Try changing HD Ready to High Resolution.

This is NOT HD Ready. A HD Ready monitor or television requires a HDMI port.
#32
All this talk of HD ready is rediculous. That term is only used for receivers. That is a television with a tuner ( not necessarily a HD tuner).

From wikpedia
The EICTA HD ready specifications and the concept of the in-store label are based on agreements made between over 60 broadcasters and manufacturers of the European HDTV Forum at its second session in June 2004, held at the Betzdorf, Luxembourg headquarters of founding member SES Astra.
#33
I've been using two of these monitors (two-screen solution) for a year and a half. They're very nice indeed. They were £125 when I got them, in-store at Tesco.

There's a hell of a lot of mis-information flying around this thread about the necessity of full HD on computer screens (which, as has been pointed out, is just a resolution and not some sort of magic formula)...

Don't be put off by it, though, at this price these are definitely worth it (I'm even tempted and I'm staring at one (two ;) ) now)

1680x1050 resolution is 309,600 less pixels than 1920x1080 (1080p). learn the difference between pixels and resolution. MINIMAL, My A** MINIMAL!!

If you attempt to display a 1920x1080 image on a 1680x1050 screen, either one of three things will happen:

1 - the screen gets cropped (the outside borders of the image gets chopped off). Or..

2 - the 1920x1080 image is scaled down (squished) to fit a 1680x1050 screen, with loss of detail. And in some instances where the image scaling algorithm in the monitor is crappy, you see jaggies. Or.

3 - Some 1680x1050 monitors will simply refuse to display the higher resolution signal and give you a "signal out of range" error.

Therefore, this is not worth buying, NOT just because its not HD, but because these will be worth £40 within this year, before Christmas. Not voted

1920 x 1080 = 2,073,600
