Image Contrast Ratio 1000:1 would put me off

But for £135 for a 23' with 3ys warranty, its still not bad, shame it's only VGA though

That is the non dynamic ratio, i.e, the real number. Your used to seeing the false numbers. The dynamic ratio for this monitor is 20000:1.

It's good for the price but lack of connectivity options kills it for me.

Though I am a fan of digital connections, there is very little wrong with VGA, and with a properly adjusted picture you'll soon forget about the nature of the connection round the back. More to the point is that DVI carries extra taxes, which is why these big VGA screens can be sold so cheap in comparison.
#6
The version with DVI and VGA is only £150 shipped from more computers
#7
I guess this deal is hot, but over £100 you really want to be looking for a DVI interface...

Go for the cdiscount Sw 23" for £150 craking monitor!!!! Saying that not impressed with there customer care... I ordered it at £159 few hours after they reduced it to £149 but refused to refund me the extra £10 and they told me to cancel order!!! then reorder at reduced price the ***** cracking monitor though but ***** company!!!

Hot deal, I'm not after DVI or HDMI because my netbook only uses VGA which would make this perfect.

Just need money :(.

You can get "interference" problems caused by earth loops with VGA and laptops/netbooks if the laptop power supply has an earth connection (i.e. a three pin socket going into it, rather than two-pin figure of eight).

Difference between VGA and DVI is huge, unless you have crappy eyesight.

I just ordered (and received yesterday) a Samsung 2443 24" monitor for around £200. Now that is a cracking deal - an extra inch and DVI. Looks almost as good as my Dell I-PVA panel.

Nope - the difference can be completely invisible, regardless of how good your eyesight is. :roll: But VGA is more susceptible to problems such as the one I mentioned above. I suggest you had a poor VGA connection and you are assuming your experience is the same as everyone else's.

VGA has always been as good as DVI or component for me.

Sorry but I have used a VGA for years, then changed to DVI, and the difference is huge, period.

Sharpness is the biggest difference, and if you don't believe me, go get a DVI to VGA and plug it in, then take that off and put it in the DVI, you'll be suprised.

Or, put a decent DVI and a decent VGA next to each other and see the difference.

My opinion is based using many VGA monitors and many DVI monitors, I used to work in a PC shop and have looked at many different monitors. I used to own a top of the range CRT and Flatscreen VGA (Who didn't?) and when I changed to DVI for my recent Samsung monitors I couldn't believe the difference.

Some people don't see a difference in 720p vs 1080p, it depends on your eyes + how geeky you are. For me, 720p + 1080p is also huge, yet many people I know will say "They are exactly the same".

It wouldn't make any difference how long you'd used it for. :) If you've got a dud VGA setup you've got a dud VGA setup.
Sharpness is the biggest difference, and if you don't believe me, go get a DVI to VGA and plug it in, then take that off and put it in the DVI, you'll be suprised.
And, in some cases, there is no difference.

If your near sight is good enough to see the pixel boundaries then take a look at a vertical transition on the screen. If it isn't good enough, use a magnifying glass. If the transition occurs completely between adjacent pixels, and there is no overshoot, then the "sharpness" is as good as DVI. And it is on the monitor I am using right now.

And there's no need for a pi5sing contest about how big your monitor is compared with mine.

I am going to be losing sleep now.

And your point is? :?

I just picked one of these up this afternoon. Very impressed so far.

Got it cheaper on [url]www.morecomputers.com[/url] though for £136.47 inc P&P.

AH, another cheap LCD deal, another VGA-vs-DVI debate :) Its a decent price for a large screen, end of!
#21
I have the DVI equivalent of this monitor at work, which replaced by 20" 1600x1200 Dell Ultrasharp, and I own a 24" Dell 2407WFP 1920x1600 Ultrasharp at home.

I was rather surprised at how good the image quality is. It's not quite up to my 24" 2407, but that cost me around £450 when I bought it. All in all would certainly recommend this deal, or if you want a DVI connection then the SM2343BW from EBuyer:

http://www.ebuyer.com/product/152744

Fantastic resolution (I really need something around 1200 pixels high), good image quality and a great price.

I have a monitor with VGA and DVI inputs. (an LG 19")
If i switch from one input to the other I cannot tell them apart.
The only time i can tell is that if the VGA cable runs over the power cable a slight interference pattern is visible.
With a properly shielded cable, there is zero difference to my eyes.

Have other people compared DVI and VGA on the same monitor? I think a 3 year old VGA monitor will look worse than a new DVI monitor because monitors now are better than they were 3 years ago, not because of the interface.
#24
I bought this from ebuyer recently for the same price but with free P&P.

Its a nice monitor but the lack of DVI does kill it. The quality over VGA is passable if you're not too fussy, but there's a definite ghosting around on screen text. I tried replacing the VGA cable with a top quality one, which helped quite a bit, but didn't solve the problem completely.

Its just not possible to push 2.3 million pixels down a VGA cable with no quality loss. I've returned the monitor and am replacing it with a 1920x1200 one with DVI. (Ebuyer were very good about the return, even though the screen isnt technically 'faulty')

I didn't, I'm just stating a fact.

Google it, and my opinion is backed up a lot, I've just had a quick search.
#26
A good price if you don't mind TN panels, although I'm spoiled by PVA panels so I can't go back. Its worth noting that E-IPS panels should be coming a bit more widespread, if spending this amount on a monitor is a "big" upgrade to some folks it might be worth waiting.
