That's a great price, I got the 23" version (IPS234V) for just under £100. Assuming they're very similar, you can't do much better for the money!

Just reserved one, interesting, will ave a look over the other thread,

Thanks lover,

Errr,

Thanks OP

Using mine now, have had it for 18 months and it is fantastic

Cracking price. Hot

I bought one of these, but ended up returning it. I found the text on websites to be too small for my poor old eyes. I had a mess about with changing font sizes, the Firefox add-on NoSquint, and tried lowering the screen resolution, but decided I didn't want to keep using it like that. I got a refund and bought a 24 inch 1080p monitor, instead.

Still a good price, though! It's £10 cheaper than when I bought mine.

EDIT Btw, these monitors only went on sale 13 months ago.

Be careful, I've had argost substitute monitors for a different model of "similar" specification on collection without making me aware.

In my case, the similar spec model they gave me wasn't an IPS panel, and didn't even have HDMI output (unlike the one I reserved).

I use this, it's absolute quality.

I do heavy gaming and have no problem with the response time, even with fps games and Starcraft.

Did you not just use your mouse scroll + ctrl to zoom in lol? Was the resolution actually at 1920x1080p?

ordered. thanks

Well it's always good to make sure what you're collecting is what you ordered...

Never trust Argos specs.

The correct ms is 5 not 15 lol.

wibble wobble?

Excellent deal, doubt anyone can find anything with better spec at this price.

My monitor recently bit the dust. My kid who I bought a 24 inch Samsung for his birthday, kindly gave me his "old one" a 19 inch Acer with scratches and a line of stuck pixels and told me "It will do you."

Where did you get the 23'' version for that price?



The 224V and 234V are definitely 5ms.

Long story, but when Amazon had it for £109.99 it was a combination of a mysterious checkout discount and partial refund after advantageous price fluctuations. I also had £11 in credit so was only £89 out of pocket! Win.

Awesome monitor, fabulous colour reproduction and flexible connectivity (HDMI, D-sub, DVI) but beware the slight flicker if you use it for an extended period of time (6 hours). I think it must get a bit hot or something, maybe it's just mine.

Soon becomes tiresome having to change the size of the text on every site, whichever method you use. It also causes quite a few sites to display incorrectly when you zoom in or change the font size. This monitor will (hopefully) be in use for years, and I wanted things right from the outset. Much better not to have to alter anything, and leave the monitor at it's native resolution (1920 x 1080), which is what I've been able to do with this 24 inch model.

My eyesight isn't that good, though, and I imagine most people won't have the same problems I had.

I take it if u bought one for my spare Xbox I'd have to buy external speakers?

Some monitors do that, I think it is a combination of the fast response rate, dithering (6 bit channels?) and maybe a not quite constant back or room light. You could live with it for a while, but it is much nicer to have a smooth monitor...

Anyway, the offer is good, but I would really aim for 23 or 24" - the difference is worth the marginal extra cost.

I've got three of these in eyefinity, they're absolutely fantastic

I'm not buying you one, you'll have to buy your own!

Worth a try!

I've had one of these for 6 weeks now (posted a deal when it was £109.99 but came with a £10 Argos voucher) and have mine on pretty much 24/7. The screen does get a little hot over to the right hand side of the screen but nothing overly hot. I don't suffer from any screen flicker, maybe a faulty unit?

In any case I think you've a 1 year Argos warranty but a 3 year manufacturers warranty.

This doesn't come with sound and isn't great for switching devices. I've had a PS3 and my PC hooked up to this but there is no switch between the 2. One has to be on while the other off for it to work.

Still I'm using it mainly for my PC and I'm thinking at some stage of adding another 1 or 2 monitors to spread out my workspace.

There is a switch, it's the 'INPUT/EXIT' button. I have my PS3 (HDMI) and PC (DVI) hooked up too and I don't have any trouble switching using that whilst they're both on.

That said mine is the 234V, but I can't see why there'd be any difference in that regard.

Excellent monitor, a steal at £89.99.

I bought one at £99.99 last week - have reserved another one at this price, will go in tomorrow and see if they will do an on the spot refund/ repurchase so I can get at this price.

Tempted to get a second one anyway, but not enough desk space....

The solution to the PC/PS3 switching problem is to connect PC and PS3 to a HDMI switch then plug that into the monitor. I'm doing this with a cheap 3 port switch I bought from Aldi and works great.

No audio input on this monitor, which is why I hooked up PC via HDMI rather than DVI - using audio output to external speakers.

There's no button to switch between devices? How do you switch between 2 connected and powered on displays?

It's a great monitor, have one.

Okay geekheads, how much would one have to fork out for a decent set of speakers for this ?

Them old computer ones won't be any good will they ?

Great price, although I suspect for many it's a bit small.

I've just picked one of these up, but I was given the LG 22EA53VQ-P instead of this. Can anybody tell me if it's worth keeping?
