Ok - no HDMI but ...........

This is £90 + delivery (£4.80 ish) - possible 1.5% Quico as well
This has a 3 year warranty
This has full 1920x1080
This has USB Display so you don't even need a graphics card !!! - this uses DisplayLink

Not really for you gamers (although the VGA will do at a push) but for a low power office monitor - the displaylink means no interference and a digital picture.

Also has built in soundcard/ethernet/thingies via the USB - you can connect this up to a netbook/laptop with a single USB cable - no monitor cable required.

I bought a couple of these when they were £80 at Play - worth buying for connecting a laptop via USB.

Yeah - gutted that I missed them at that price but by the time I'd done my research and then the school run they had gone back up in price.

They seem a pretty reasonable monitor for a reasonable price - I only need something for the office as I do a lot of programming and screen "real estate" is more important than the speed of the graphics updates generally.

After I saw your note on the other Play deal I decided to keep an eye open for these - I missed the bit where they were LED backlit on the other deal otherwise I'd have bought them without hesitation (and saved £20 on a pair !).

if I connect this to my laptop via USB, will it give me high def resolution? Actually I am looking for cheap Display Port input 24" monitor for my W510.

I also purchased this monitor, and i run it on a high quality Lindy VGA cable it is fine at 1920x1080,
At first i was not very impressed with the colour reproduction having come from my HP monitor, but i think now the screen has burnt over a couple of weeks its very nice and especially for the £80 i paid.
Dont use the docking station bit as i have a Mac.

As long as you're using one of the supported operating systems then it should do (I've not used one of these yet - mine are on their way !).

Don't expect to be watching hidef video or playing demanding games on as the USB video isn't fast enough for that.

If this is only VGA personally I'd spend the extra few quid and grab this Benq for the added DVI.

Benq monitor £99.99 @ Play

actually scrap that, the LED backlight version is now the same price at Amazon, I have it myself, excellent monitor with vga and dvi (21.5" Full HD)

I did consider the Benq but the closest one (at the time) was non LED. I saw the other one with the LED backlighting but the 3 year warranty on the Lenovo swung it for me - if I get 3 years of HD for £30 a year then I'm happy lol

Its a tricky one - its VGA and USB Digital (no DVI)

The advantage of USB digital (DisplayLink) is that if you don't have a powerful graphics card and don't need the monitor for stuff like video and animation then you can get away with running it on USB. You can also daisychain monitors together to extend your desktop - its fascinating stuff.

As I mainly use mine for PCB design / CAD / Programming etc these are a good option for me.

Have a look at the demo video - interesting stuff youtube.com/wat…ZF8

Got mine this morning and running them as a dual monitor setup on an Ubuntu/Win7 dual boot machine. Work brilliantly although there is a slight hint of ghosting on full 1080p via VGA - the cables supplied aren't the best in the world.

Will have to have a play with the USB side of things when I get some time.

And IT247 have now gone :-(

I had a few things from them and never had any problems.
