COLD! no hdmi and crappy contrast ratio

OK if you get free delivery, otherwise it costs £115.63 delivered. Only £114.91 delivered from Dabs.

This monitor is always between this price and £110 from various retailers.

Not a fantastic monitor, but very good value. No HDCP or HDMI, and a bit of backlight bleed. Not one for serious graphics use or entertainment, but a very good general purpose monitor. You would have to spend another £30 to £50 to get anything significantly better.

Hot because it is the best price at the moment, if you can avoid delivery cost.

Quoted contrast ratios don't mean anything All LCDs have poor contrast ratios full stop.

DVI has as good picture quality as HDMI so its not a big deal, especially at this price. And you can get adaptors anyway.

This is a 23" 1920x1980 monitor for just over £100. This is HOT.

Unless you have a better deal .........................................................?

Hot deal, and what's this about first deal so be nice to me crap. Wish people wouldn't say that. you are a **** for posting such a good deal :P and making me spend £$

Pointless having full hd on this size though surely?!

Have had digimate LCD for years. Excellent quality - better than my Dell LCD. Heat added

I've got one of these, it's great for the price, big screen etc.
Don't use it VGA as the colors are awful, DVI is fine. In-built speaker is ok for day to day stuff. Had no problems playing games etc. - so definitely hot for hundred quid.

i bought this few months ago when it was similar price,

Looks nice but the picture of anything standard definition is awful from youtube or iplayer. However HD content looks very very nice!

I also got the little key fob with the 1 inch screen , its laughable really i gave it to my 3 yr old

I don't have direct experience of this monitor and obviously those who have can judge it better than me, but Digimate regularly get very poor reviews, which makes me think it may be better to spend around £20 to £25 more to get a 24" Benq.

I've bought two of these and they are perfectly good enough for 95% of people's usage in my opinion.

1920 x 1080 over even VGA is totally clear and very sharp.

But as someone pointed out, they are usually about this price anyway.

At least they are being honest and showing it's real contrast ratio, … At least they are being honest and showing it's real contrast ratio, unlike most manufacturers who show off their 'dynamic ratio', which every company has a different way of measuring. The only way to judge a TV or monitor is see it running for yourself. I used the 22" version of this monitor in a build for a friend and it was just fine. Obviously the more you spend the better it looks, but what's most important is the colour representation - but then you are looking at hundreds more for an IPS panel monitor.But yes, the lack of HDMI is unfortunate, but there's always adapters. However, there's no way on earth this deal is 'cold'.


re: contrast - true (unlike plasma's where there is a standard measure)

as tv yes but as a computer monitor its useful - eg photo editing

Not quite, depends on whether your source video (generated by the PC graphics card) can make use of the 1080p or HD. If tthe source is low resolution, then it is pointless. If it is 1080i or 1080p then it is useful. When HD materials is pushed by the graphics card then the detail on this monitor is very good (especialy for £104). If you use a low res TV tuner then no way the graphics card will upscale the TV signal to HD resolution. But if you have Freesat HD then bingo!

You're not supposed to vote cold just because YOU don't like a product, at best, don't vote in that case. Only vote cold if the product is cheaper elsewhere or a direct equivalent (or better) is cheaper elsewhere :x

Screen: £110.43 + delivery.

You need to go through the page that you are initially linked to. If you try adding from the product page you are hcarged the normal price.

I am writing this on this screen (metaphorically :thumbsup: ) and can tell you it is a brilliant purchase. Makes widescreen movies look good, you can run parralel programs and it is fine (next to each other) because the screen is so large.

Quality finish as well - the base is fine ocne screwed in and the gloss finish shinesss.

I had no dead pixels on mine and I bought it months ago - it is still perfect.

Well said. Too many people vote cold for precisely this reason. Rep added to you.

:thumbsup: repped

Voted hot from me,this has come at an exellent time for me as my monitor in my living room pc gave up the ghost yesterday so well done for the post m8!

Hot to trot, I have it, its a good deal. Simples:)

I have two of these. Both got faults. OSD buttons doesn't work properly on first one. Sometimes it turns volume up by itself. Second one has vertical shadow lines problem. I think they are flimsy and cheap. Well for this price, what do you expect.

you can get HD resolution from your graphics card using a VGA or DVI cable (no need for HDMI)

Bytemaster: this will be fine for gaming/movies. Genuinely high spec'd … Bytemaster: this will be fine for gaming/movies. Genuinely high spec'd monitor (IPS panels) are pretty much only really a requirement for graphic designers, or people in that field. And for anything significantly better you are looking at spending ~£330 more on the Dell Ultrasharp 24": http://www.ebuyer.com/product/172798



I actually have one of these, and I can confirm my original comment that I do not think it is suitable for entertainment/movies due to excessive back-light bleed. I have read reviews which have also referred to the back-light bleed, so I don't think mine is a one-off case. No problem for general office use, but it would be very apparent during dark scenes.

I agree that that for serious graphics use you would need to move to an IPS monitor for a lot more money. What I was suggesting you could get for another £30 - £50 would be things like less bleed, HDMI etc.

I did say it is good value though and I have no complaints about mine.

The point I was addressing is not that you can't get HD, but that there is no HDCP support. You cannot play any HDCP protected content such a Bluray, unless you use something such as AnyDVD HD. Also I am not sure whether the PS3 will work using HDMI->DVI if HDCP is not supported.

I have had a couple of these monitors, they have been around this price for a while, think the ones I got were from ebuyer last time, and they are great value. But I would say the quality aint the greatest and they do tend to get stuck pixels, which you can fix, but it can be a bit annoying
