Tesco wll replace or refund?

Good monitor and great price.

We've got 5 Acer monitors in the office and they are excellent.
They're on practically all the time and never had a problem with them at all.

Great build quality and image quality is pretty good.

Okay - so this does not have DVI but it's £119.00p for a good brand of monitor.

My housemate has this monitor, it is horrible. My eyes hurt when you try to read the text, it sort of moves a bit almost. Get one an inch smaller or a bit more expensive.

they are refunding it yea just not sure to get a replacement or find something else

I'm assuming that he has configured it properly. There are different settings suited for text, pictures, video etc..

I've got the P223W version and it's great.

sound like he doesnt have the graphics card set-up properly - probably hasn't installed the drivers...
same thing happened to my ATI 4870 before i installed the Catalyst drivers - i normally see it after a fresh OS install

Sounds about right. The ghosting on my VGA Belinea 22" 1680*1050 monitor makes text slightly unpleasant. This screen, hm, 4.5% larger with a 14% greater resolution, it'd turn your text to the equivelent of [SIZE="1"]about this size, with all the added ghosting effects suffered from pushing even more data down the wire. It wouldn't be pretty.[/SIZE]

spelling mistakes can be quite confusing.

Looks great to me - Hot!

I have the P223W and its great. Its left on most of the time and ive never had any trouble with it. Just wish it had other outputs.

Na I tried it on my laptop and it looked the same. To be fair it might be faulty, sometimes jaggedy lines appear down it. I think they may be some kind of signal processing problem in it.

But besides you can just see it isn't as crisp as my Neovo or my samsung upstairs. yes partly because they are both DVI and I hate VGA but honestly this is not a good monitor. As I said you can get a slightly smaller one for the same price or getter a slightly more expensive one that is the same size. You will not regret it.

Well there shouldn't be, it should have an ON mode which is at least ok for everything.

Thanks, good spot.

even the BEST LCD one still has some motion blur.

lcd = garbage.

Been looking for a 22/23" monitor with DVI, anyone know anything about these possible options that seem a good buy.

Well you can't very well go buying a plasma monitor now can you, unless you want a 42" monitor. Anyway I know I have lots of monitors and this one is terrible.

That's the problem with high resolution VGA monitors.

No DVI or HDMI or DisplayPort = No Way.

Or just get a shielded VGA cable and it'll be fine. My 24" Acer @ 1920x1200 doesn't suffer.

Could be because that's a different & better model.

Nah, it's a 2416w I think, i.e. v cheap and cheerful - about 18 months old and only cost £200 back then.
It's just that people tend to forget that the VGA cables you get with most monitors are ****, get a bit of shielding and you don't lose anywhere near as much of the signal so there's no problem putting a 1080p resolution down.

Well, it looks like you have a S-PVA panel there. It might have been 'cheap and cheerful' but these are superior to TN panels, which this 23" one is.

Reviews praise your monitor for the excellent viewing angles (not surprisingly being a S-PVA), but bemoan it for the lack of a DVI connection.

It could have been the cable I guess, i did not try changing it. I doubt it though.

Does this monitor work on any PC?

duhprest;4405803

Does this monitor work on any PC?

Yes, should do with any PC that has a VGA connection & who's graphics will support this monitor's native resolution of 1920x1080 - you'd ideally want to run it at this res anyway for the best picture.

Don't forget that all LCD screens are built to run best at a certain resolution called it's native resolution. If you run them at any other res, u will have all sorts of problems with ghosting, lines, text moving etc etc

Edit:sorry just read above post who basically said same thing

Given that an LCD monitor is best at its native resolution how do you get around the problem that if you use a very high resolution much of what appears on the screen - in office type applications - is so small that you can't easily read it?

I know that you can resize icons but this is only part of the answer.

Can this be used for Hi-Def gaming and using a Blu-Ray/HD-DVD Rom Drive for viewing in Hi Def?

My 15.4" dell xps has a res of 1920x1200 and the screen is very pretty - you can adjust size of text to slightly bigger if required.
Also, ghosting is not caused by pushing data down the cable... ghosting is the shadow that is left when you have a moving object, e.g. scrolling text or a moving person.

I think you need a dvi cable (or hdmi) as generally software won't let you send unencrypted blu-ray/hd-dvd content for fear of high quality copies made by reencoding the vga signal...
