Good price but No HDMI

Why should no HDMI be a deal-breaker? The video signal and quality over DVI is basically the same.

Seeing that rainbow seems you're on lsd :-)

Do you have a point or no?

I think also that dvi and hdmi are really the same quality.

No difference what so ever. HDMI is essentially just single link DVI with audio. That is why you can get a DVI to HDMI cable so cheap, it is a pin to pin cable.

Dude get off those drugs. They've ruined half your brain.

dvi will show nore that 60fps

AFAIK they are the same. Provide some evidence please.

Thankfully HDMI does too.

No problems as such, but 1080p on a 27" seems a waste. It's cheap and useful for grandma since everything is bigger but I would invest in a 2560x1440 IPS monitor instead.

I'm typing this reply on one now. Very nice monitor. But a lot more expensive than this one obviously. They've come up on here a few times recently at around the £250 mark so slightly cheaper than the current Amazon price if you hunt about or wait.

Agree, pixel density of 1080p stretched over a 27" screen is not pleasant, bought one and sent it back. Might be OK if you have cataracts.

I agree, but even then I'd rather buy a 1440p monitor and crank up the text size than try and use 1080p on 27".

For anyone wanting a recommendation, I'm in love with my new Dell U2515H (there's a good Youtube review here). It's £250 for 1440p at 25" - I was sceptical that 25" would be too small for 1440p, but it's perfect.

Hi. My son has a small fst TV in his room which is just linked to his xbox. This has now got a green vertical line through the screen so looking to replace. Would a monitor be a better choice...if he is not linked to aerial or sky etc?
Thanks

You can get a HDMI-TO-DVI adapter for a quid or two but it won't carry audio...
If he uses a headset or an amp, it will do but otherwise, you'll need to consider how to get audio from the 360.
I use an HDMI switch with an audio splitter... I send the video to a DVI monitor and the audio to some PC speakers but switches with audio splitters are not very common or very cheap.

Guys, do your homework - as far as video quality is concerned, DVI and HDMI are exactly the same. They use the same encoding scheme for digital video signals and offer the same image quality. The only advantage of HDMI is that it also carries audio - which is irrelevant in this case as this monitor has no speakers. If you've got a HDMI device that you would want to connect to this monitor, just use a DVI-HDMI adapter.

How does this compare with the IIlyama 27" posted yesterday?...HDMI aside...

If you want a 1080p display I'd recommend going no higher than 22 inch.

They look poo otherwise.

I'd go for the Iilyama. Great brand and cheaper. Amazon too. The fact this doesn't have HDMI could hint at an older model.
Edited by: "kalico" 8th Mar 2015

1080p at 27" looks just fine, just like the 55" 1080p TVs you can buy.

It depends what you want it for. The Dell has a 6ms response time, whereas the Iilyama is 1ms. If you're gaming then the TN monitor is a better buy imo, especially if you play FPS. If you're doing a lot of photo work then go for the IPS Dell.
