This looks like a nice monitor. Great price too ! It does look to have an external power supply - is this the same for all 24" monitors ?
:oops:

good find , hot.

Good price for this size monitor, but not the fastest at 8ms.

Good for graphics work, not so good for games and films.

just ordered through a mates referral link, so i'll be getting an extra 5% cashback on it from him at some point. if its any good, i may order another one for use with an upscaling dvd player in the bedroom

Anyone know what type of panel this is? Thx.

great specs, good find,, heat added.

other places selling it for not much more - £160

thanks for post, but the response time of 8ms makes this a no go for a gamer.
Heat added though, good price

"Normal operation
owner11: it may be news to you, but you will be likely be driving this at a 60Hz refresh rate - that's one frame every 16ms - so how you think that less than 8ms response time will make things any better I find hard to fathom.

This monitor just received a reasonable review in PC Pro. Not a particularly good monitor, but outstanding VFM.

From personal experience, I urge you to not go for Edge monitors. They are made from cheap plastic, and the back part you're able to push in (that's how thin the plastic is). The actual screen itself is, IMO also very bad, the contrast and brightness are not of equal levels i.e. you want it a higher contrast but it's too bright with brightness at 0. Which resulted in horrible 'spots' running around the screen when looking at photos and videos (no it wasn't a graphics card/or settings problem). This was a 24" Edge monitor I was looking at, until I made them switch to a Dell monitor posted here previously.

With these panels, if you hold off (from buying) few more days/week, then they seem to be reduced to around £99 to £130. Things can only get cheaper.

Unfortunately it's a bit of a myth about response times. if this has a TRUE 8ms response then it'll be cracking for games. Manufacturers however take liberties with the types of measurements they do.

I have an older Dell Monitor 24" 16ms response and it's still absolutely stunning running in Games and HD video. The only way to really tell a good monitor is to see it yourself or go by real world reviews.

8ms is fine for gaming in my experience, unless they are measuring it differently. Ive got an old 16ms LCD which has no problems (albeit lower res than this)

As this is a TN-based panel, I'd say the opposite is actually true. TN-panels are not very good for colour-accurate graphics work.

Most PVA panels suffer from varying levels of input lag, so one could argue they may not be suitable for fast-moving games. But because of their more true-to-life colours & excellent viewing angles, they're much more suited for graphics work. The 'true' response times for these panels can range from 30-70ms (or worse) - compare that with the mere 8ms on this.

Read what the others have said about the 8ms response time & games. This will be fine for films as well.

Yes, this has a VGA port.

Not sure if the laptop graphics will be capable of displaying the full 1920 x 1200 resolution though.

Could be a blessing in disguise.

I'd pay a little more & get a better brand & quality - only £12-20 more for these with HDCP:

I ordered one of these from play.com recently and can vouch for the poor quality of build.

Poor picture quality (washed-out colours) and three dead pixels.

Returned for a refund.

I'm waiting for an offer on a PVA monitor. They never seem to be posted - or perhaps never get hot because people don't realise that they are inherently more expensive so vote cold out of ignorance.

Mate, i'm not sure it works like that. The response time is how long it takes the pixels to change colour upon being instructed. Therefore, you get your first frame, and after 16ms, the pixels are instructed to change colour, such that they represent the second frame (of 60 per second). It takes 8ms for this change to take place. To some people this can cause a blurry effect, because you almost have two frames on the screen at once, rather than an instantaneous change (which is impossible currently, I assume CRT is closest to 0ms) of frames.

I might be talking rubbish, but that's what I assume is happening If you think logically mate, nobody would ever really talk about response rates below 17ms, if your theory is correct. But, as everyoneis always talking about it, we either assume that your theory is not the way it works, or that everyone wants to run their displays at 120Hz plus, which would be pretty pointless unless they were playing old games on a beast GFX (i.e. they were actually getting a new frame each 120th of a second, rather than say 60 frames, each lasting for 2 refreshes of the monitor). I think the latter is less likely, generally speaking.

Also, with your theory, nobody would ever complain of motion blur whilst watching a video, as videos are 30fps max., pretty much.

There's a third explanation: people don't understand the figure and, just like with the lazy "megapixels" on cameras, assume that more (or less in this case) is always better.

As is often pointed out, the figure bears no scrutiny at all because there is no standard by which it is measured.

I suspect that the "motion blur" which people see when watching video is more to do with coding artifacts than screen response time.

And also, a quick response rate can be a bad thing in that it can cause motion artifacts - yet another reason why the figure is pointless.

The response time quoted in the specs is rise/fall time, which is the old way of doing it. Most manufacturers list the Gray-to-Gray (GtG) time now, so I'd guess this is actually a bog standard 5ms GtG panel. It's just they're listing the response time in an unusual way.

lovely bit of kit http://www.avatarjunkie.net/cimg/8f125da0b3432ed853c0b6f7ee5aaa6b.gif

well, the monitor just arrived, and its a BEAST!

didnt really have room on my work desktop (got three monitors already on there), but i plugged it into my laptop and all looks good.

some people have moaned about build quality, but everything seems fine with it so far. my work laptop didnt have enough memory to display it in 1900x1200, but in the 1400x1024 or so res that it *could* display, all looked quite nice.

will report back with results from plugging it in my desktop pc and my upscaling dvd player when i get it home...
