This is an excellent monitor and was a replacement for my 20" Samsung T200 (terrible bouncy stand). Picture and build quality is superb and would highly recommend .

Exactly! Seems to be more about the resolution than the actual size at the moment, which is fair enough.

Seems a good price for the size and especially the resolution.

just checked the specs. does not seem to have a HDMI connection, is their a way to connect a

PS3 to the monitor, also does anyone know if the aspect ratio is 16.9


thanks in advance

aye, looks like a good buy...

TV Tuner u mount on the back of the moniter (Wall Mount Sockets) then that should have AV in, use standard AV for gaming..?

dont you get a longer warranty direct from dell instead of a ****** 1 year warranty with pc world?

The way to do that would be with a HDMI -> DVI cable which you can pic up for around £5. The cables themselves are identical apart from a HDMI -> HDMI cable would carry Video & Audio where as a HDMI -> DVI wouldn't so you'd have to connect the sound up separately.

great deal, thanks

Low contrast ratio though.

Wouldn't that high a res on a 22" make text really small?

1680x1050 is the correct res for a 22" monitor



No and no. Unless you are Mr Magoo.

If you don't have a great deal of room on your desk and do not need to sit too far away from your screen, then I cannot see what the problem is. After all, 17" laptops have sported this resolution for ages (and some 15" Dells). I have a decent 24" Dell monitor with this resolution and it has always struck me as a little too pixelated for my liking.

Can someone suggest whether to get this or the 23" samsung with 2048*1152 at more computers for £170?

This matches 1080p resolution exactly.

I guess the pixel density will be the same - dense enough to be smooth and not pixelly.

I like Samsung stuff. If it had HDMI input as well it would be a no brainer (PC via DVI, console via HDMI). Indeed if this Dell had HDMI input it would be a no brainer. I guess it would need integrated speakers then. Might as well install a Freeview tuner in that case, and a DVD drive. Then you have something else entirely!

I was fairly shocked how small and long this screen looks and others like it. The ads make these monitors look almost as chunky as tvs. 22" sounds big but in this format it certainly does not look it to me. I advise seeing it before buying.

Text on this monitor is about the same size as on a 20" monitor with 1680 x 1050 resolution. The picture quality is excellent, it is a bit wider (16:9 than standard 16:10) monitor but the extra width is actually better for having two documents opened side by side.

I much prefer it to the Samsung Rose T200 which I returned because the stand was so bad that if you typed the monitor wobbled from side to side in the stand! Picture quality of the Dell is excellent and the contrast is good, a lot of monitors state 20,000:1 contrats like the Samsung Rose but in reality it is 1000:1 and is just a marketing ploy! Plus I am sure it comes with a manufacturers 3 year warranty.

I'd advise looking at the 22in mark of a tape tape measure. That might be some kind of indication....

LOL

If it is full HD but has no HD connections how does one watch anything in HD on it?

It has a DVI input which is a digital input allowing HD quality output through the monitor, it is not a tv!

Any particular reason why someone may want a HD monitor for a PC? HD is a format that is used to broadcast 'some' TV programmes etc. and also some gaming platforms support it. But a PC monitor?

Does the DVI input carry HD information? And from where would it be carrying it - a PS3 for example? Thanks.

Can anyone see where it actually says it is 'Full HD'?

Dvi is mainly for connecting a pc. You could get a hdmi to dvi adaptor to connect ur ps3.

You can adjust text size with your PC surely?

The ad had the reverse effect on me - it looks to me like a one and a half inch screen for some reason! :roll:

Would it still carry the same quality of info though?

Robbieeee2k;4162075

It will carry exactly the same quality because DVI=HDMI. The only difference is HDMI transmits audio and has HD Copyright Protection. DVI does not transmit sound.

I'm just going to be using this monitor just with my computer. I found this samsung 22" for cheaper

ebuyer.com/pro…ews

which one is best to go for? The samsung one has a slightly lower res, but would it really effect it? Is the dell one worth the extra £20?

Went into my local PC World at lunch and had a look at the monitor. Earlier comments about how small it looks I have to agree with! I also thought it looked cheaply built.

Whilst I was there I saw a E228WFP in the clearance section (as posted earlier by someone!!) so despite my comments of good luck finding one in stock they do have them at £119!! Sitting typing on it at work now lol. The stock search online will show them out of stock if they have less than 3 as I asked a guy in the shop. He said the shop didnt have any though but I saw the last one as I was leaving...

Check out the direct link to the ]Dell website
States the monitor is HD 1080P. It will give you an excellent picture quality and the picture ratio (16:9) is more suitable for the PS3 and watching movies, just need to connect your ps3 to a hifi for sound. I have heard of some people having issues connecting their ps3 to monitors with ratios (16:10) but I think it is more brand specific.

DVI is more important once you start getting over a screen size of 19" and resolutions of 1640*1080.

no hdmi what about build-in speakers?

Now appears to have gone back up to £149.99 :-( on their website. Still going for £141.99 on Currys though.

If you really want a 22" monitor it would be better to buy one with a DVI input. The samsung monitor you are thinking about only has VGA and this is an analogue input and not digital. For future proofing and better picture quality you would be best buying a 22" monitor with DVI.
