+ Quidco too

Nice - anyone got any experience of this one?

VGA connector only by the looks of it.

vga only. not bad but I have seen 20" HDMI full HD monitors go for little more than this (though not LED back light)

This seems to be the best I can find at present for the size/price - 20", LED, DVI......Any one got any better ones or is this the best option for a 20" at present???

resolution too low in my opinion. spend the extra & get this 1080p
its got DVI-D & VGA, 1920x1080 resolution, 24" screen, only 28w power consumption

Resolution is a tad low, probably worth paying the extra for a 1920 x 1080 panel.

resolution isnt a MAJOR factor, when its only 19-22" TV/Monitors.

1600x900 is an odd resolution...

If you're looking at spending less than £100 for a monitor, I doubt you're going to care about the resolution, especially at this screen size. Great price for low-end users, heat added.

1600x900 HD resolution



No native 1080p

a common misconception

You want to output at the same resolution as your screen supports

It's unusual - it's a computer monitor with a TV aspect ratio of 16:9, but doesn't conform to 720p or 1080p resolutions.

Then again it's ludicrously cheap, and as long as the graphics card supports 1600x900 then I'm sure it'll be excellent value for money.

Erm yes it is.... I wouldn't dream of buying a monitor that's not 1080p, although I personally prefer 1920x1200....

How can they class this as high def and then only stick VGA on it, what a waste...


dc2447

No native 1080p



Wrong, its 720p HD Ready at best. For 1080p Full HD it would need to be 1920 x 1080.

VGA connector has nothing to do with the resolution. I've got an old Sony CRT monitor that does 1880x1440 @ 85Hz via VGA and it's crystal clear. Digital isn't always better, and most PCs still come with a VGA port as standard.

VGA-only reduces the price. Any display larger than 19" with a DVI or HDMI connector attracts an additional tax from the EU as it's deemed to be a TV.

I'd say it is. I mean not for a TV, but for a monitor it is, since the higher resolution you have, the more room on your screen you'll have.

Despite that for £90 I wouldn't care too much about the resolution on this monitor.

I funlly understand about the connections on a PC and UK import duties applied. It's only classed as a TV if it has HDMI, DVI doesn't count which is why display port was introduced as a way of getting high res video and sound over a single cable without it being classed as a TV.

HD is High Fidelity which a VGA connection is not. It has no HD inputs and so am consufed as to why is called HD?

Looks to me like it's pure marketing....

This monitor IMO is a cold deal

Why is VGA not high fidelity? It can do limitless colours and far higher resolutions and refresh rates than HDMI at the current specification.The fact that a cheap computer monitor might have a crappy input board to decode it is down to the manufacturer.

DVI does count for import taxes if it's DVI-D with HDCP. DVI-D and HDMI are electrically compatible, the main difference is that DVI can't transmit audio.

seems a bit fat for led

If you dont want hi res buy a tv. They are generally cheaper and bigger - the main benefit of a monitor is it's higher res....by for £90 this is still a bargain.

VGA supports 1080p, so how is VGA a waste?


Humss

A digital image (HDMI, DVI) is cleaner, crisper, and has no noticable noise. VGA is analogue. It's being phased out on motherboards already, and the picture is less than you'd expect from a digital experience. VGA is not future friendly.

Not really a valid argument since the monitor you're suggesting is almost twice as expensive as this one, I'd argue anyone considering this is looking at cost as the primary factor and everything else is secondary....

And also, while I agree with the technical arguments VGA being able to out-perform HDMI in terms of resolution, my personal experience (on a samsung 193P) with VGA and DVI from the same grpahics card was that DVI gave a noticibly cripser and more stable looking image, however I do concede that the decoder boards used in the monitor and encoding by the gfx card may have a part to play rather than the inherent workings of the transmission technology...

I bought three of those bad boys for Nvidia Surround/multi-tasking and haven't been disappointed. 21.5" for a nice pixel density, full HD 1920x1080, 2ms, 50,000:1

Yes it is, if you're using it for a pc monitor you want decent desktop real estate. No idea what you're going on about, you're probably one of those consumers sucked into the OMG 720P HD ready!!!! logos and generally missing the point as to why we are saying the resolution is poor.

What are you on about? HD is 'High Definition', not 'Hi Fidelity', they are standards set for screen resolutions.
HD can be 1080p or 720p, both of which can be achieved via VGA connection.

His point is, not everyone cares about the amount of desktop real estate they have. Many people (kids, oldies) wouldn't care much about it (in fact oldies may appreciate the larger icons/text :D).
My laptop is 1600x900, and I have no probems viewing websites or viewing documents, so this monitor would be fine for a lot of people.

Anyway, how many people who really want a lot of desktop real estate would go for a 20" monitor anyway?

What kind of people would go for a 20"/22" monitor for desktop screen estate?

Hmm... I'm guessing the same people that buy 24" monitors with the same 1920*1080 resolution, just who want it at a much cheaper price.

Desktop real estate, fyi, is on the computer. I said desktop real estate (estate on the desktop) at no point did you see me write Desktop Monitor Size which you were referring to by including the 20" screen measurement.

so anyway, yeah it's not too bad a deal.

I know exactly what you meant by desktop real estate, and my point was people wouldn't go for a 20" monitor if they wanted more 'real estate' because they'd be squinting to see the little text and icons.
My resolution is 1920x1200, but I certainly wouldn't want it on anything less than a 26" screen as I'm not fond of eye strain.

Sorry if you couldn't grasp that, seemed pretty simple to me.
