Thanks ebybrit The postage is free at the moment - a promotion they have for New Year countdown - I should have included this in my OP ... ( I have added it now )

You can get next day delivery for just £1 too

Hot - I've been waiting for one with HDMI but at this price I might just treat myself ...

How much cheaper can they get... need one for my son for February birthday so am taking the plunge now.

Heat and rep added

Dont forget your get Quidco on this item.

What a bargain!!

wow! any1 know if this is the DVI which supports ps3 dhp or somtin?

Hdcp?

thats the 1 :). cant seem to see it listed anywhere - i take that as a no

More info here: p4c.philips.com/fil…pdf

Doesn't seem to mention HDCP anywhere here.

I think I'll hang on until there is a 22" with a free crate of whisky ... :-D

Further research seems to indicate HDCP support

Here's a review: custompc.co.uk/rev…tml

can i plug in freeview with hdmi adapter to turn this into a tv?

can i plug in freeview with hdmi adapter to turn this into a tv?


HDMI=DVI* + Audio

So yes.

*(with HDCP)

Just placed order using the 3x 0% payments.............:santa:

not bad........free bottle of wine, next day delivery and under £30 out of my spends for the month:thumbsup: :-D

i ordered on the 30th and have not heard a dickie bird from them. Emails are bounced. I dont like ringing 0844 numbers # why should you have to pay to complain and there seems to be no landline or address.
Does anyone know a contact name or number for these people?

Hi Old Gold - In fairness, its only the 2nd, there's been a weekend and bank holiday since you ordered - you would probably expect a bit of delay over the New Year.

I ordered a tv on the 26th from Dixons and just received it today ...

Did you email via the online contact us ? Most people would have been off work yesterday due to it being New Years Day - maybe you should try again today - hope you get it soon

I appreciate what they say but there are still people working on the non holiday days and if they are so into customer care as they indicate on their website there is plenty they can do. There was no qualification with the pay extra to receive the item within 24 hours. It would not have taken much to have put someething on their website. Sorry but their service stinks.

Oh thats not so good then, didnt realise you had paid for next day delivery ...

I didn't pay for next day delivery but I got the despatch emailmine turned up this morning at 4:01 this morning and it arrived at 8:30! I've just set it up and can confirm it's fantastic too!

Excellent news, thanks for the feedback eglons

hi, i looked at a hdmi to dvi-d cable to connect a console to this monitor - silly question, but what additional cable do i need to output sound?

anyone know warranty on this screen?

Well got mine today, ordered and got it next day great service

nice monitor indeed, very damn bright though compared to my old monitor!

still bit confused on warranty length, have emailed Philips but no reply yet.

incase anyone was wondering, got a reply fro Philips about the warranty:

Dear Mr. Bigup,Thank you for contacting Philips regarding your … Dear Mr. Bigup,Thank you for contacting Philips regarding your 200BW8ES/05.I understand from your email that you would like to know the warranty for a 200BW8ES/05.The warranty for 200BW8ES/05 is a 3 years onsite swap.I hope I have answered your question satisfactorily. If you have any further enquiries into this matter, please contact us.Sincerely,Patricia MullerPhilips Customer Care Centres



Pretty impressive for an £85 monitor

Bit late coming in on this one, but remembered seeing it and my old CRT just gave up the ghost so just ordered.

Great deal & looking forward to dual screening with my lappy for photoshop / site design :thumbsup:

Thanks again.

Good find! A well spec'd monitor for the price. Looks like it'll be fine for my new Core i7 Dell i just ordered from another thread! and also i can hook up my PS3!

The review from custom PC is dated july 07 so it's probably an old model. But for the price it's still a great buy!!

Dont forget Quidco (4% hopefully) & i got postage for £1.99 (first order i think)

Heat & rep added!

Quick follow up. Took delivery of this yesterday and it's a fantastic monitor - epecially when used as an extended desktop with my 17" laptop :-D

The picture is bright & sharp and having a 20" screen canvas alone in photoshop / illustrator is chuffin amazing :thumbsup:

Thanks yet again!
