Great deal. I wouldn't use this for my own personal computer, but this would be fine in an office, where top specs are not required.

It would also make a decent back-up monitor.

Big warning to anyone thinking of buying this, it only states that it has a standard VGA connection (no DVI, or HDMI).

great deal for just another monitor. it don't matter if it's just VGA!

Really don't see why people has such issues with a VGA connector - use a VGA to DVI converter and the difference is almost imperceptible. Fair enough on HDMI but for £67 this is an excellent buy.

Theres a big difference in quality between a DSUB and DVI on the same monitor A VGA to DVI converter as you refer to, is still just an anologue connection not a digital one like DVI.

There is a difference, but it's not as big as people make out.

£67, for a 18.5" monitor, is a bargain. Demanding a DVI input for a £67 monitor is asking too much, I think.

I've seen monitors priced around £100 without an DVI input.

This monitor would be great as a back-up.

I was only warning people about the VGA only input, not suggesting that makes it hot/cold or otherwise! Some people may well have bought this monitor to receive it and then discover they can't actually connect it without then also buying (very cheaply) a DVI->VGA adapter.

Why would anyone want a 'back up' monitor? Back up hard drive...yeah, I get that. But a monitor?

This will be more than good enough for 90% of PC users, it's definitely a hot deal.

Example: someone has a home computer. By spending £67, they can attach their computer to a 2nd monitor for dual view. This gives them extra desktop space (if they need it). In the even that their main monitor fails, this "back-up" monitor becomes their main monitor while they replace their broken monitor.

Hence, rather than having a computer which is totally out of commission, for £67, they can have a back up monitor as well as an extra monitor to run in dual view.

For people who cannot distinguish between different types of screens, this will do them fine. However, for enthusiasts like myself, I would not run this (TN) monitor as my main monitor. Most people, of course, will not be able to tell the difference.

Far too inadequate for me, but a fantastic price for what it is. Voted hot.

That's a low resolution for a screen of that size, everything will look Really Big

You can change the DPI, in the display settings, so can decrease the size of the text when displayed on-screen.

"Average specs, but GOOD brand name."

Is that meant to be a recommendation?

No, it is just my personal opinion. My current 22" LG TV/monitor has a 3 year replacement policy, which is reassuring and not something you would get with a cheaper budget brands you see on here.

As to the specs they are OK, not cutting edge but will be adequate for most users.
