have one of these, great responce time (2ms) great price

looks so good!
especially with a dell 530 in silver/white
is it a new model?

Shame it doesn't have DVI.

Cue people voting cold because it's sold by Pixmania...

This would look lovely on my hackintosh :):)

HOT HOT HOT

does anyone know of a version with DVI?

i really would like to buy this but the lack of DVI in my opinion is a big turn off

Resolution - great.

Price - great.

No DVI - not so great

Cold from me, sadly.

A good find for what it is - but for me no DVI is a killer nowadays.

So in 2 years, the price of a 19" wide has gone down by £35....Is it really worth it when you can pick up VGA 20"s that have much higher resoultions for like £10 more?

Voted hot, and looks amazing. But if you really want a bigger monitor, look ]here

Also 19" monitor can be bought for £79.97 (store pickup) from PC World, ]link here. You might have to try every store near you, but both 22" and 19" can be found in London, atleast when I checked last time they were.

whats so good about dvi? whats it for?

Digital cable. Not really needed for 1440x900 though IMHO, just get a properly shielded analog cable and you'll be fine. I've got a cheapy Acer 24" @ 1920x1200 that displays fine with a £10 analog cable.

You could play PS3 on it with HDMI-> DVI cable.

If you want this as your main monitor, better to pay a little extra for a 20" 1680x1050 panel IMO. The extra pixels make a big difference.

Really? I thought you'd have a problem unless the monitor was HDCP compatible?

imo, it looks great and for most low end users who want their pc to look good but not neccesarily be a top spec one (e.g. lack of DVI) then then is good imo..........

The mains reasons are that there's no conversion needed so picture quality won't be held back by a cheap analogue to digital converter, it's free of the alignment and focusing issues of VGA (which was designed for CRTs) and it's also future proof. While the current DVI standard ports on computers can output both DVI and VGA others that may replace it like HDMI and DisplayPort will only output an extended DVI signal so your VGA-input monitor will be useless.

I would think practically all PCs come with DVI these days, maybe a few older onboard graphics chips don't.

That's not strictly true. DVI is not compatible with displayport

I also don't think you'll see DVI ports (which are compatible with VGA) disappearing totally as a graphics card connector too soon. There are plenty of people out there with VGA monitors so DVI will live on for a long long long time

Oh? Given the low cost of the cables I just assumed the two were compatible.

That's why I said may.

Agreed about the practicallity of it as i said its not really going to be any use for people with gamging pc's or graphic or web design people (should really use a mac anyway) but for someone who has it in a spare room and just uses their pc for their kids homework etc i think it would be fine.........

Pixmania have reduced this to £90 now!

thanks updated to lower price

I'd assume this has an audio in port?
Would it be a 3.5mm one?

Why would you make that assumption?

A lot of the monitors I've been looking at do
Did I jump the gun then?

Oh and the whole speaker bundle thing

Yep. It doesn't have speakers itself so it doesn't have an audio in.
