Why is ebuyer not allowed?

Because they used to post there own deals to get people to buy from them ;-)

Sometimes it is.sometimes it is not, they change the rules all the time.

I brought that monitor the other day and it is worth every penny colour is amazing, size is overly impressive, it cheap in cost and its superb. 1080p is amazing beyond believe, I rate this monitor over a samsung and I have seen many samsungs.

The only disappointment is the usb is pointless as you need to connect it to another usb cable which is not provided


Oh yeah, the response time they have posted is the basic response time. It can be adjusted to 2ms which is perfect for gaming

nowadays monitors and tvs seem to do each others jobs, so is there a reason why i should use a monitor to connect to my computer rather than a tv? would it be better quality?

It never said anything when i posted just mentioned some other ebuyer deals that may match this one but none did. I already have a hd 23" lcd but it only has vga input & i want to run a hdmi splitter from my ps3 to the big tv & a monitor (so i can play while the wife watches the soaps zzzz) was hoping to use the one i have (acer v233h (without dvi)) but apparently it needs to be hdcp compliant?? so gonna sell acer & buy this unless anyone knows of a way to achieve what i want to do with my current setup?

what is this like compared to the dell.

i nearly ordered the dell but didnt like the white back . this one looks a nice monitor too.

well it has 39 5 star reviews so it must be good...also recomended by computer shopper

loads of 5 star reviews & i can hook up my ps3 & pc at the same time...very tempted, just wish i'd bought this in the 1st place & not my acer v233h although its a good monitor i need the dual input now :-(

Banned

This is so tempting!

Had this montior for about 2 motnhs now, been using it for PC at full HD settings and for my brothers PS3 when he visits... best monitor I have ever had and that includes the dell montior that I use with my PS3 all the time, there's nothing wrong with the dell just to be clear, but the colours on the phillips seems better and of course having speakers built in are a plus. My surround system went wrong once and so for 10 days I had to try and figure out another way to get sound as the dell doesn't have speakers... that was a right pain in the (_!_)

As the other guy said, the downside is a useless USB port (unless you have a webcam or something) but can't see the point personally as you have to run a USB devide cable to within 6-10 inches of where the USB port is anyway, so why wouldn't you just run an extension cable anyway?? - and the only downside I can see as such is the monitor not having the ability to be wall mounted at all... but not a problem for me as this is my PC monitor and backup just in case anything happens to the dell (which is wall mounted)

hope that helps someone anyway, this is a great monitor especially for the price too.

They're just specialised for different jobs - a monitor for displaying whatever it's given and a TV for trying to make the best out of low resolution video signals. Given the different pricing it's a little hard to compare directly, the average monitor is generally only £150 or less while I'd imagine a lot of people spend £500 or more on their TV.

They are both LCD monitors. LED just refers to the backlighting.

I was going to buy this monitor from Ebuyer just after Xmas (due to good reviews and the variety of input connection types), but they ramped the price up to £179 for a few days (as they often do) so ended up getting the equivalent LG which I'm very happy with.

george__johnson;7714610

Gloss finish, but doesn't reflect too badly IMO... the dell is far worse.

Assuming your TV is also 23" or similar than the main improvement you're likely to see on this is less delay before the picture is shown. But if you haven't noticed any problems there on your TV it's probably not worth going for this.

Are you sure? I have this monitor and the screen is matt

have to say it is a very very good monitor indeed

Yep I'm sure, I'm typing this whilst looking at it, also the description on ebuyer also says gloss too

[edit] Duh, got confused sorry... the screen is just like any other TFT screen, the bezel is glossy. I assumed that's what the guy was asking about the bezel... I've never actually seen a glossy screen on a TFT monitor personally... that's another reason I prefer monitors to actual TVs

how much??:w00t:

Is this better than the Dell ST2410 which I ordered a couple of weeks ago for £160. Im not sure if I sure cancel the Dell for this. The advantage of the Dell is that i's 24" (1" bigger). Also what about the other BenQ monitors. I'm confused to what to do.

either
1. Do not cancel the Dell ST2410
2. cancel and buy this monitor
3. cancel and buy one of the BenQ monitors

someone who knows this stuff, HELP ME

I've got this monitor recently and it is quality.
Colours are vivid.
Motion is handled well enough.
Aesthetically looks good.
Built-in speakers - though they are tinny when at full volume.
There is a headphone jack out - so you can connect better thumping speakers.
No dead-pixels...though I guess that's hit or miss with any LCD.
VGA and DVI and HDMI.

I was hesitating which to buy...Dell...LG...other brands...but the Computer Shopper and peoples reviews help me make a good choice with the Philips :-)

I guess its for plugging in flash drives and the like.

Seems a great price for the specifications and inputs.

I bought one recently and it's very a very impressive monitor though I'm still not sure what the USB socket is for. Manual says nothing. What do I connect it to?

Hmmmmm Sounds like a nice monitor...very tempting

H+R

i have this monitor bought back in dec 09 for 149.99

great monitor, not had any problems.

very good review on this monitor heat added

Been looking for a decent monitor and decided to take the plunge - also going to be useful so my son can play with the 360 or PS3 in his room with HDMI (and sound from the monitor!) when I'm not using the monitor.

Heat added.

hey guys, does anyone know how his would compare to ]http//ww…tml. primarily want it for the xbox but am not sure whether the picture would look as good as it might on this philips screen.

cheers

has anyone connected it with macbook pro? hows the picture quality like? does the screen crops out or does the picture fills the screen edge to edge? PLEASE HELP SOMEONE!!

You connect it to the USB port on the back of your pc, it saves you from having to have an extension on the desk or bending down to plug it straight into the pc.

I've just bought this monitor, for £154.99 with free next day delivery.

The HDMI, better than most speakers, and the 3 Years warranty sung it for me.
Was looking at the £110 digi one.
