Found 15th Sep 2008
Just spotted this 'un in my endless hunt for a LCD for the bedroom.

Specs:
Screen Size : 20"
Hd Ready : Yes
Analogue Tuner : Yes
Pc Input : Yes
Scart Sockets : 1
Component : Yes
S-Video : Yes
Hdmi : 1
Dvi : 1

Dimensions (W x H x D) in mm 493 x 368 x 70
Contrast Ratio : 1000:1

To me this looks an absolute steal (even if lack of freeview is slightly annoying)

Next cheapest is 209.99 at PLAY

I'd be grateful if anyone who thinks it's a poor deal could tell me why as I may well be purchasing this after work

Yeah, I mentioned that.
Not a problem for me as it's gonna hooked to a DVD recorder with freeview. May put some off though

I've had this TV for getting on a year and I'm very happy with it.
One thing though, since most of the time its in 4:3 mode a box has now been burned into the middle of the screen.
It's only really noticeable when the screen is completely black (I noticed it when I was using it as a monitor with a black background) and isn't really noticeable when watching a DVD or playing xbox, but still I didn't expect that to happen on a modern TV!

I bought it.

Its been this price for ages, and this is a repost, so voting cold for me.

However, in answer to your question: It seems great to me. I have PC + SKY + X360 plugged into it via VGA and it looks awesome.

I rate it

Cheers for the input guys.

Just found the old thread was a couple of months back so apologies for that

BTW, It's this price in the stores too, and they are really nice people. Give them a ring and they will save you one, and pay your parking costs!

Oh, I'm more than familiar with RS. I've bought nearly all my kit there over the years, saving a few quid on price-matches over time as well

honest question: does HD really matter on a 20" screen?

not really but no one said it did.

it supports 1920 through HDMI apparently as well, but rescales it.

Well... I went to get this last night, and went home empty handed despite it being in stock.

thanks for the info :thumbsup:

How the hell do you put it the screen on its stand? Its meant to be easier if you "push it down while swinging it left and right a little" wtf?

I'm actually going to get the lube out in a minute, its harder to squeeze the monitor in its stand than it is a "twix" in a "moist muffin"

it is stupidly hard to do, and very annoying. luckily i eventually managed to do it, because i was seriously considering returning it.
