Looks good to me, h+
#2
It seems strange that with that resolution it has VGA?
#3
Most people won't notice the difference between VGA and DVI/HDMI. Unless you specifically require HDMI or DVI this looks like a good monitor at a good price. I doubt many monitors in this sort of price range can compete with the Samsung.
#4
hi can you use 3d vision on this?
#5
Nice panel, but I think you would want HDMI or DVI at that resolutuion.
#6
Can D-SUB even do that resolution? I thought it maxed out at 1920x1200.
#7
No it doesn't work with 3D vision, the panel you need is Samsung SyncMaster 2233 or any other monitor with 2ms refresh rate or 120hx.

Personally i wouldn't bother, i never use mine.
#8
Would be wary with it not having a DVI input, but reviews seem positive regardless. Heat.

I have the Samsung 2232BW, it has a 2MS Refresh Rate stickered on it, is it good enough do you think? It's a few years old now :thinking:


No, it has to be 120hz, there are only 3/4 screens at the moment that do this.

I have the 2232BW Pebble too, it was £250.00 at the time I bought it. Now you can get a nice Samsung 22" Full HD 1920/1080P TV/Monitor for less than I paid for this monitor.

Anyway, I have watched My bloody Valentine 3D on it, the 3D works well, but it is a bad film.

EDIT:

Sorry, I thought you were just talking about 3D Video, I just googled and discovered its a new 3D gaming experience you were talking about.

The difference is noticeable between DVI/VGA on my 19" monitor at 1440x900...

I personally would want dvi or hdmi for a monitor of this resolution!

It really depends on the monitor and seeing as this is a Analogue monitor then you can assume that it will be designed with VGA processing in mind, VGA doesnt have a maximum resolution but most graphics cards max out at 2048 x 1536, Another thing that can degrade the image is the cable but the one supplied with this must be designed to work at that res,

Better monitors out there cheaper with DVI/HDMI, voted cold

BTW all
I have 2 of these monitors on my Main PC at home.
I use fairly short VGA leads but the picture is fine, I use this for gaming and 1080p films.

You seem to be under the impression that DVI or HDMI are faster or something. They aren't.

The quality of the picture of a VGA monitor depends on the quality of the analogue to digital converter that the monitor has.....

TBH I don't see the point of this resolution .... it's not native 1080, it's not 16:10......

You need to tell us which monitor. Merely stating this doesn't help anyone without a link to the product you are referring to.

Bare in mind at this price most of the monitors in direct competition will be very similar in colour reproduction and overall quality (they will all be TN panels), so the only specification that really matters is the inches and the resolution.

So if you can find a monitor with the same resolution and viewing area with HDMI or DVI at the same price, please do tell us :thumbsup:

This is a monitor, not a television. The higher the resolution the better.

Eh?

Its a 16:9 resolution, and its greater than 1920 x 1080 so you can display more on the screen.

Not a resolution supported by most games, so if you want the extra desktop real estate (big woop!), then go ahead and buy.

not true, most run off the resolutions supplied by the monitor and thus the windows settings (i forget the broadcast that the monitor does that tells the computer this) and they are selectable from the graphics menu of the game

What games don't support this resolution?

Usually games are limited by support for: Widescreen or Aspect Ratio
Even in these rare cases, the games can usually be fixed to support it via .ini hacks

You need a decent machine to shift this resolution in modern games though, most people would probably be better off with a 1920 x 1080 monitor of the same size

I don't know why people even post electricals on here, one person shoots it down, another bigs it up, and everyone's an expert in their own heads. We should stick to tins of beans, but then someone would just say 'tesco's own are better'.

I think it's called EDID (Extended display identification data)

Just off the top of my head!

Few extra quid, but well worth the extra http://www.ebuyer.com/product/161787

Looks to be a good monitor although apart from the DVI and HDMI it is more expensive than this monitor and has a lower resolution. That is the trade off basically, pay a little more, get a little less resolution but have HDMI and DVI.

Doesn't really matter which you go for, just make the choice based on what you need/want. Rather than based on peoples opinions of VGA vs HDMI/DVI. Like I said before, both panels used here are TN so the actual real world difference will be tiny.

I don't know why people even post electricals on here, one person shoots it down, another bigs it up


The problem is everyone has a monitor, so they all feel they can add something to the discussion, which is fine.With technology though there is always a lot of misinformation floating around. The two can easily be combined, a lot of reviews often state that HDMI or DVI is better than VGA, of course it is, but only in select circumstances, and many of those circumstances average Joe will not find himself in. Those same reviews don't explain why, they just state - blah blah, its better, blah blah.

So yeah, nobody is at fault, nobody is wrong, you just get what you need to fit your circumstances and your wallet.

That has a lower resolution it dosent even compare...
#31
don't know how but i've never even seen a monitor with this particular res before. if hi res is your thing then this is a pretty good deal.

personally though, i wouldn't buy a VGA only monitor. analogue signals have too many annoying problems, and while some seem to think there isn't a visible difference between DVI and VGA i find it very obvious in terms of sharpness and especially colour.

Its no mystery that when it comes to PC monitors, connections are pretty important. For example, with only an analogue connection, instantly the idea of using this for HD movies via bluray goes completely out the window with no HDCP compliance. If you arent going to want to watch HD content on it fine, but for the future chances of DRM being applied to other HD content, its not worth the hassle for saving a few quid on something like this...i would hardly claim to be an expert in my own head, but witholding that sort of information would surely be worse than posting it here and letting people then decide for themselves- which goes for other people's interesting observations too
banned#33
The problem with a lot of the 'DSub=poo, only buy DVI!' muppets is that they once upgraded their old vga only monitor to a new DVI monitor and saw a decent improvement, and somehow assume its only the connection thats caused it.

Well, its not. In the real world, you may all think you're pro's who can spot the difference, but I'd put money on the fact you can't. Get a monitor that has VGA and DVI outputs, plug them both in (to the same graphics card), and switch between them. I'd be surprised if you could honestly put your hand on your heart, and say you can see a noticable difference.

But then being the elite pwnzors that you all think you are, you're just going to say yes you can anyway, no matter what the real outcome.

The HDCP arguement I can agree with. This is a big limitation if thats your thing.

But image quality, I can't let that one pass.

I cannot, I know that for sure heh.

Although a lot of people can't to be honest, I have read numerous threads about people using VGA on their 360 then going to HDMI and seeing no difference whatsoever.

Indeed, it would be the only real argument for DVI/HDMI vs VGA that impacts the average user. The problem is a lot of monitors around this price point have DVI or HDMI but are not HDCP. So you have to be pretty careful. The other argument is, if you plan on watching HD movies via your PC you should really be looking at a very high-end TN panel or PVA/IPS panel.
#36
It's an OK deal. Im not voting hot/cold but I bought this monitor for £130 a year ago. PS its perfect through VGA.

Although if you look REALLY close, you can see the pixels arnt super shard (yes I've auto adjusted) but you do not notice at all when using the monitor.

Samsung make good monitors, its bright, viewing angles are very good, etc etc

Nice view, so then why does anyone upgrade any part of a computer ?

Did you type this on a pentium 2 / 133mhz / 128mb / 14" crt screen ?

Thought not ;-)

I can't see any difference between VGD and DVi on my Dell 24" monitor. Don't let lack of DVI put anyone off from laying down the cash.

I do find this an odd "deal". This is actually the most expensive it's been in some weeks. They were selling them for £132.99 only last week.
