Pretty top quality LG 22" monitor with HDMI, DVI and VGA input. 5ms response time is decent and LED is an added bonus, especially since its a lot thinner than other monitors.

Alternatively, a Hanns G monitor but for £10 less.

Good price, but does not have a HDMI socket like the LG.

Yep, soz, was meant to put that. For people who don't need an HDMI tbh.

Reviews seem a little thin on the ground, but does look rather nice.

Might bite the bullet tomorow and hope for the best. Heat deservedly awarded. A good £10 more on other sites all in.

Looks like it has an analogue audio output too, handy for the HDMI input. Though it's not mentioned in the spec, for some reason?

I was looking at this for a little while and would warn anyone looking at it that the specification on Amazon is for another 23in model, you'll need to look on other sites for its true dimensions (about 52cm width) and other details.

Looks a great price for LED with HDMI, this size of screen and from a well known brand.

Just grabbed one right here right now couldn't stop myself

Some other sites like novatech, misco and oyyy say it's screen size is actually 21.5"

When you buy it (I have 2 of these already) is also says 21.5" on the box.
Just measured it with a tape measure :-) 21.5 inches

Loads of monitors add another half inch to the model number. A bit naughty really and I thought this practice had supposed to have stopped with the demise of CRTs...

Clearly not.

That said, provided you're aware of it, there's no real problem.

i bought this for 250

BUY IT, ITS FANTASTIC!!!!

Heat from me

Great price! Silly question but does it come with freeview built in?

Can you take the stand off or reduce the height?

I have a boxed shelf attached to my desk which has a height of 37cm. Would I be able to squeeze the monitor in some how?

Complete tech novice so please forgive what might be two very basic questions:

1. Would this be ok for running a Wii for the kids?
2. Can I use this as a computer monitor too?

I'm not really intending to use it as a tv at all.

Thanks
Edited by: "slojo" 1st Dec 2011

It's not a TV, it's a monitor. So no freeview, etc. You could run a wii on it if you got an adapter like a HDMI key, but if you're buying for a wii you might as well get something with the right inputs already (composite, scart or component).

But if you were to buy a standalone freeview box and connect it via HDMI, that should work shouldn't it?

Overall height with stand is 40cm
The stand itself is completely removable; you could then attach it via VESA to a wall mount.

I woud have thought so, but there are no speakers built in, so you'd need those too. And you'd have no remote standby.

There is an m&s 19" LCD TV on the front page for £99, maybe have a look at that instead.

Gah! No speakers

On the verge of buying 2 of these to replace my ageing dual monitor set-up which annoys me slightly as the screens are different.

Thing is I know I'd just end up adding them to the original 2 and having a quad monitor array.... I don't need this....I don't need this....

you can get speakers from £10 upwards and probably anything you buy would be as good if not better than built in speakers

Dabs outlet have an alternative to this if yo uwant one with speakers

Ordered one earlier, will one of these leads from here do? hotukdeals.com/dea…486

Anyone who already has one of these monitors; can you confirm whether the dvi port on the monitor requires male or female, please?

I propose to connect to a tower via dvi and laptop via VGA. No use as yet for HDMI in my office.

The port on the monitor is female, therefore it needs a male connector on the cable.

I guess so - I think all DVI cables were female to female (but I've never really thought about it before.)

shame it wasn't that little bit bigger. Going from a 24in samsung to a 21.5 would make a difference and I don't have the space for 2

My plan was to have this as a main display and keep my current 17" as a secondary for playing about with Photoshop, video editing and the like. I'd been doing a bit of giggling to find out how best to do it and one link came up with the LG site and something they call Dual Package.

Googling that came up with very little other than the same link. Wondered if anyone can expand?!?

Cheers folks!

If your graphics card has a DVI x 2 or HDMI and DVI slot or VGA and DVI etc, basically 2 video outputs, then you can use both monitors. Catalyst and NVIDIA control panel will auto adjust for you

if only it had speakers i would of jumped for 2 of these, they look great monitors for the money

Why not buy a set for £10?

Cheers Chewy.

I will have 2 outlets for monitors soon after Christmas but not just yet. I'm prepping myself for a self build and money is a bit tight at the moment so I've decided to wait until after all the excess spending dies down.

To be honest, it's as much curiosity as anything else. Although if dual package meant I could use 2 displays now with one outlet then that'd be absolutely ace!

Thanks again.

Does anyone have an opinion as to this monitor vs Hanns G? Will be using as a second monitor off a laptop.

Anyone else been stiffed over by amazon? My monitor has gone missing... After several phone calls they have dispatched a replacement. If you buy one of these ensure it does not get sent via HDNL!

where do i plug speakers into this tv?
im looking to use this as ps3 and pc monitor

You don't...this is a monitor....you could use it if you have a separate amp or set of speakers...i use a set of yahama 2.1 usb speakers I have has for ten years now and still great so this is a good buy for me for pc. Maybe you could use optical out from ps3 to optical in on pc if your sound card supports it then sound would go through pc speakers but you would probably need pc on at same time.

The pictures show what looks like a 3.5mm Jack on the back, I don't know if this is amplified (headphones) or not (line out/speakers) though.

This deal is still active?! oO

think it is for headphones output (might have been mentioned earlier) strange as don't think line in but maybe from the HDMI? Also deal is still on...ordered one last night!
