This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

Great reviews for the monitor, internal speakers, HDMI, DVI, 2MS response time, 12M:1 DCR.
Had this in my basket for a while and was ordering on ebuyer but got an email amazon had lowered the price and bought two, lowest price ever as shown on camelcamel.
First deal submitted, not sure what else to write.

You need an HDMI cable, I don't think there's an audio out on the monitor so it would only use the 2 2W speakers.

Like WW said, you'd need to connect using HDMI (this will pass through audio as well as video)
However if you do not want to use the speakers in the monitor you can use an optical cable from PS3 to another audio device (hifi, etc) and configure this through the PS3.

Hope that helps
Lowest price ever

Or the original RCA cable with just red and white plugs, the PS3 can set that for audio and HDMI for video. I do that on my monitor.

Fair point but at the risk of it going out of stock before the other person changes it I would still have done the same.
I bought this monitor a few weeks ago and I have to say it is an amazing monitor for the price, the picture quality is great but if you are going to be playing games on it I would advise to have the sharpness setting to 4 or below as it can cause some irritating jagged edges on objects. Also the audio isn't great as the speakers are behind the monitor so it sounds rather distant but for such a low price this would be expected. In addition the monitor is very simple to put together, just clip the stand on and there are a decent amount of settings. Overall I have had no problems with the monitor and definitely recommend this if you want a cheap monitor.
I almost bought this in preparation for the PS4 coming out. At £111 is seems pretty cheap, I'm after a decent 24" monitor to use for gaming and watching videos etc. on the PC. I was expecting to have to spend around £200 for that but this monitor seems highly recommend so I think I might just get it now unless anyone has any other suggestions?
Would be cheaper through laptopsdirect using which? trick but these days you need £200 order, you could always order 2 I guess
It's not the lowest ever. I bought it 2 weeks ago from Amazon for £104, advertised here.
Great deal, but cold vote for poor information

Quick FYI, you can get a slightly improved version of this monitor that has more ports (2x HDMI plus headphone/line-in ports) and better response time (just 1ms) and built in RTS mode for just £22.99 extra. But no one was interested in it.

Just a shame about the 3 - 6 week wait, that's no good for me unfortunately.

Grr, bought this for my brother in law last week at the other price. He said it's a great monitor, used for PS3.

Fine by me. Cheers for finding it! I was thinking about the one in the posted deal but I'm having that.
I posted it after seeing a deal similar to this, I thought that maybe some people would prefer a model with more features and extra ports, your only paying like £22.99 extra which is not a huge amount. Even then the price at £133.99 is still £20 cheaper than the next cheapest retailer. still boggled and slightly irked as to how it got voted so cold when its the cheapest of its kind.

I was tempted by it but I want a new monitor for the PS4 release and up to a 6 week wait is no good, hmm.
Has anyone used this monitor with a MacBook?

Assuming your MacBook has a Mini DisplayPort or Thunderbolt port...

Buy yourself a mini displayport adapter (£4.93 delivered) and a HDMI cable (£1 delivered). Hey presto, £5.93 and you've made this monitor work with your MacBook!

prefer the GW va true 8bit version than the 6bit tn one above



I have a GW model and agree it's great!

My only disappointment has been HDMI. There's audible hiss and hum when speakers are plugged into the HDMI port on the monitor. Possibly BENQ cheaped out with their HDMI implementation? Has anyone else noticed this?
