Apparently if you get the correct VA panel then its a good buy, however there were problems with people receiving TN panels instead. OC said they'd looked into this and had located a batch that were sent out incorrectly. However it seems after this poeple were still either getting sent TN panels as a replacement, or having their orders cancelled.

So as I say, the VA panel seems to be really good, if OC have managed to sort themselves out... saying that I've ordered from OC numerous times and found them to be a really pleasant company

/i'm waiting for my pva panel to turn up tomorrow. The TN was collected from me F.O.C today, it still looked very good
#3
OCUK are an awful company - with appropriate messages all over the web - sure you can't please everyone, but the majority of reviews for a company should be positive, not the other way round.
#4
What do you need from a screen? Does it need to have connections for a games console? Does it need to have HDCP to play blu-ray disks? Do you need a VA screen or will TN do?

Personally, If you've got a disabled son I would avoid this and go for something with good support, something like BenQ's G2400W or NEC's 24" TN.

Also, have you considered a pair of smaller (maybe 22") monitors? They are slightly over budget but they might be more usable, depending on the circumstances.
#5
I have one of these monitors and am totaly chuffed to bits with it. I have delt with this company for over six years here n there and have experienced no problems with them at all. If your looking for using it to connect an xbox 360 or PS3 its perfect. Its also darn good for hd or upscaled dvd viewing . I could continue but my advice is to read up on the ocuk forum and do as I did and just go for it.

Cold at the moment as there stocks entirely contaminated with TN panels.....
Hot if you can get a VA but even replacement TN panels are being sent out.

Yeah read on the OCUK forum, where all the bad comments are deleted by the mods :whistling:

Avoid OCUK if possible is my advice.... their price is ok comparing to other retailer but CS is very very poor.... i had my motherboard replaced around 6 months ago.... it took them 1 month to replace it and only returned me a wrong motherboard.....

Y[COLOR="Red"]ou CANT connect a PS3 directly to this[/COLOR]. the DVI port is NOT HDCP enabled.

The only only way to get a ps3 to work is by buying a HDfury (£63ish for the DVI>VGA hdcp enabler or £49 for the PS3 specific cable http://www.thegametrain.com/hdfury-gamer-edition-hd-fury-ps3-vga-cable-p-487.html?currency=GBP )

that effectively emulates a HDMI/HDCP enabled port . ( this is what i intend to do, both turn up tomorrow)

Even PS3 games as well as Blu ray films now need HDCP enabled DVI/HDMI ports since the later firmware updates.

As for their CS. Yes they have had a problem with these but i believe that is down to their supplier trying it on. They are collecting the monitor with the wrong panel the day after i called for free and the replacement is coming the day after that ( it's already despatched) .
Can't really complain about that.

When you're getting a panel that is usually in monitors that cost £1000 then i see no reason to vote this cold

Could you prove that please? This has an P-MVA panel and the £1000 24" monitors I know of (Samsung XL24, A couple of Eizos) both use S-PVA panels. Even slightly cheaper monitors like the LaCie 324 and the NEC 2490 still don't use it (S-PVA and H-IPS respectively).

Without doing detailed searching the only monitors I can see that have a 24" P-MVA panel are the BenQ FP241W and the LG L245WP. The LG has an 8ms G2G response time compared to the 6ms on this so that can probably be ruled out, which leaves the BenQ which is also 6ms.

Still, it's the panel from a £430 monitor in a £230 monitor. So what do you loose?

-No HDCP: You can't hook up a blu-ray player to the OCUK display and have it play in high resolution.
-No adjustment: The BenQ comes with tilt, sivel, pivot and height adjustment. The OCUK display only comes with tilt.
-No onsite warrenty. The BenQ has it, the OCUK is collect and return.

And that's just what's listed in the specs. I would expect that £200 to also go towards better quality control (so there's less chance of a flaw in the display), better build quality, better calibration and better support.

Not that I'm saying that the OCUK display is a bad one, if it matches you needs than go for it. There's apparently quite a few people that are happy with it. Just be aware of what you're not getting.

Note: I don't have any experience of either company's support. These are just the conclusions of someone who's been looking to buy a 24" display himself.
