no it doesn't........no tv tuner, no web cam, what you talking about.

Not as hot as some of the other recent deals.

Plus remember contrast ratio is hard to judge going by spec these days, with most going for dyynamic ratings, and others going for that new way of doing it with what seems to be ultra dybamic ratings or something!

Anyway this one is a good monitor

It’s only £141.45 if you go through the Today Only page.

It's copied right of the "go to deal" link... but it uses pictures for ticks and crosses which didn't copy so well! You're right about TV Tuner and Web cam. It does have ticks for HDCP, Speakers, VESA, Widescreen.

Anyway, why's it cold? "Not as hot" I understand, but what's a better current deal?

Very good monitor. I bought this model a couple of weeks ago at amazon when their price was similar to this offer. The Asus doesn't have the flexibility of the IIyama monitors, but for the price this is not a bad monitor at all. Excellent resolution and good colour reproduction.

PCAdvisor.co.uk:

You shouldn't be expecting too much for £145, but the Asus VH222H delivers more than you have a right to expect. The viewing angles could be a problem, but the varied colour palette, high resolution support and excellent connectivity make this a notable screen for the money.

They do seem to be rarer these days but there aren't any manufacturers who guarantee no dead pixels, dell seem to be spreading their zero bright pixel guarantee (i.e. the only dead pixels are black ones) to a lot of their range though.

Well 'dynamic contrast' has nothing to do with contrast at all, it varies the brightness while the contrast stays the same. Anything about 1000:1-1500:1 is 'dynamic contrast' and thus means absolutely nothing. Most desktop monitors are around 600:1-1000:1 these days - there doesn't seem to have been much improvement in that area recently.

It's bigger, cheaper, and if you want different conectors buy converter cables.

This asus one is actually £156 delivered, but the link above is free delivery as it's amazon £119 delivered.

I would never purchase a monitor that just had VGA. you may not see the difference but running 1080p using a vga cable will be dire.

the acer is cheap because its just got vga.

no DVI / HDMI input alas

The Acer monitor doesn't have stereo speakers built in. The speakers on the Asus aren't the greatest, but nevertheless it still has the option.

The Asus monitor also comes with a 3 year limited warranty, whereas the Acer monitor comes with a 2 year limited warranty.

Overall, the Acer has inferior audio, connectivity and warranty options.

I fail to see how the Acer is a better deal??

Plus you'll need to spend more money on a VGA to HDMI connector cable.



Can't be done in a simple cable, would need a very elaborate converter (don't think they even make them), the signals are completely different.

DVI to VGA you can usually do on most graphics cards if it's a DVI-I connector and not DVI-D, and they usually come with the adapter, assuming you ONLY want to use it with a computer.

For a similar price, anything with DVI/HDMI/HDCP beats one with just VGA for me by a longshot. Yeah the other one is bigger and cheaper, so that's also a hot deal if that's all you need, but this definitely has advantages so is a hot deal.

It'll be dire but you can't see any difference :?

VGA quality depends on how good the converter in the monitor is, VGA can be bang up there with DVI in quality. When DVI is usually only a few pounds extra it's worth paying it because DVI is more tolerant and will look at it's best in more circumstances. However, on bargain basement monitors like this where the price difference is considerable it's definitely worth considering the VGA option.

The dell 2209wa is a far superior monitor and for a extra £45 you get the following warranty.

^ It is HDMI and DVI !!!

What's the point of posting completley different spec screens and saying they are cheaper?

An ASUS screen (and warranty) is far superior to an ACER!

Good deal for a very good screen.

^ and another - the Dell doesn't do the same 'HD' resolution as the ASUS, again you can't compare!

alright sounds like we are having a party to recommend a different screen

so how about this one compared to the above dell one?

The LG is 1080p, with speakers, 2 X hdmi, TV [freeview tuner built in], etc... For about £190.....

Yeah, that'd be my sub-£200 screen of choice for anyone looking for a screen for general PC use. It's software isn't as good as it could have been, but the combination of e-IPS panel, fully adjustable stand and zero bright pixel guarantee is a winner.

Only for those people who are specifically looking for a 1920x1080 resolution (e.g. those with an irrational dislike of bars), there will be people looking at this and wondering whether to buy it who don't care what the aspect ratio is.

You can get them. Check out the HDFURY (and now to replace it) HDFURY2. Their cost however make them only viable for elderly high end non HD plasmas that can be converted to upscaled HD.
