This computer screen is great and I am totally pleased with it. The black level is good and once adjusted accordingly, the colours are natural and vivid. The screen is quite responsive and this is very important when I'm playing on-line games. The setting up process is straight-forward and done in minutes. The outstanding price from Argos at the moment makes this a great product at an affordable price.

Wow a Scart socket, that is awesome for retro machines

This is a serious bargain. Thanks, OP.

You are most welcome mate.

So, they market this as a monitor?

A freeview tuner, 2 x HDMI, SCART socket, and a remote control.
Sounds a lot like a TV to me...

Can get better monitors for PC. OK for TV

I'm confused now!
No mention of any of that on the Argos site

This is a bad monitor in disguise. It's disguise is connectivity. Look at all these things you can connect to it! But at its heart its a very old TN panel. It might have fancy LED back lighting but it's still a bad monitor if you've been used to anything better like an MVA panel or even better than that, an IPS display.

So expect very bad viewing angles in the vertical, (don't have your eye level lower than this in a room in other words) and no decent black levels.

I think this is just a clever way of making use of a lot of old TN panel stock. I'd avoid it but it is pretty cheap so maybe you can forgive it its weaknesses.

I was in Westfield Shepherds Bush last weekend and they had a Hannspree shop there, they looked ok to me any opinions on here what their monitors are like?

They've been around a long time, they are a budget Chinese monitor maker but they do fabricate their own screens, they're not just reselling other companies stuff like a lot of never-heard-of-em brands. They sell under lots of names HannsG is another fairly well known one. Ebuyer used to (maybe still do) sell a lot of them without much complaint.

If the monitor has the features you're after and the price looks good, I'd Google for some reviews and if all looks good, go for it. If you don't find reviews (common for some of the monitors) then its a bit of a risk but maybe worth it if the price is right. Just my opinion of course but I think the monitor is the second most important part of a computer as that's what you look at all day. The most important part though is the chair

Remember when LG was lower than bargain basement tat - called Gold Star - b4 a makeover. seems Hannes G n Ben Q are now wearing that mantle.

The chinese brands will be next to come to the forefront. The Japanese manufacturers are all in a mess and can't compete (I know Samsung and LG are South Korean, I'm not referring to them). Once the chinese companies catch up in quality it's game over...

ohh man... if I saw this before buying my new one last week from eBay, i'd be all over it

Hot! Would buy one for my bedroom but already have a 26" panasonic. Bargain though!

Cheers OP!

You mean Lucky Goldstar - Hence LG. Far East stuff used really tacky styling before they learned to tone it down for the Western market.

All TN monitors look washed out and dated now i'm used to IPS.

This Viewsonic 27" IPS from Scan would surely be a better buy at £191

That monitor is so much better, you'd be mad to buy this Samsung over that. I wouldn't even worry about the 7ms unless you're some twitchy pro gamer who wears special lycra gaming underpants to improve your performance. I'd post that as a deal if I were you, if it hasn't been already.

Care to share WHY it's so much better?
It has good reviews - but only two of them.

IPS are generally better than TN panels, colour accuracy and viewing angles are the main benefits. But response times are usually as good, so some gamers still tend to go for good TN panels (My Benq XL2720T is great, but it comes with a hefty price tag...).
You can get decent TN panels, but I doubt this cheap combo device has one.

IPS has a better colour output and much better for all purposes except for gaming. In this case, the Samsung has a 5ms response time vs 7ms for the Viewsonic - the comparison in this case is almost insignificant.

I would personally go for the Viewsonic.

These are monitors and not TV's? Then why the hell are they 1920 x 1080? Has the world gone nuts for HD or something that every object even vaguely TV shaped has to be 1920 x 1080? What's wrong with a decent 1920 x 1200 monitor? You can't find them at almost any price let alone a deal. So cold from me as it's a TV pretending to be a monitor.

How come no ones mentioned the resolution yet?

There are plenty of screens above 1080p available these days, but they always come at a premium (however the Korean imports on ebay can be decent value for money).

Great, thanks bob. I worked out the site for this was scan.co.uk from a previous posting, but hadn't noticed it was a today-only deal. Ordered - and no delivery thanks for avforums, I'm a very happy bunny
