This looks like a storming price for a 24" monitor. Huge contrast ratio and 3 yrs warranty. Looks very nice with the rose red. £210 on Amazon

I was looking at this - ebuyer.com/pro…970 which is £20 more and only has 20,000 CR.

EDIT 20/11/09 - This has just been dropped another £5, only £179.99 now

Yeah i noticed the resolution was slightly lower., does it make much of a difference? 1080 should be fine as its full hd surely? What do you think of the SM2433BW? Would you reccomend it for £20 more?

I'd rather have a 1080p monitor than a WUXGA (which is 16:10 rather than 16:9), Heat from me

nice gaming monitor but i dont like the stand looks cheap with 23" model as much better stand

Why now all these monitors 1920x1080, i mean these are not TV i would rather have the extra 120 pixels. 16:10 works perfect for me, i got 2 sammy 245b on dual display, and they are excellent

Depends really what you want it for, films or work-type applications and browsing, the latter benefitting by the 16:10 format.

Can you hook up cable box to it?

16:9 and a TN panel type are negatives but nonetheless great price if spec is sufficient.
16:10 is ideal if you use your pc for browsing/gaming. most games support 1920x1200 and the extra res is handy. I think they are focusing on 1080p these days to cut manu costs or for marketing.
Your not going to get an IPS panel this cheap but this TN panel looks pretty good.

I was going to get the SM2433BW but ended up getting a HP LP2475W.

How much did you pay for the HP LP2475W?

What are the viewing angles like on this LCD?

I purchased this one last week: hotukdeals.com/ite…h-h

It has noticeable colour shift on the sides of the screen even if you tilt your head slightly to the side when looking dead centre.

Is this common with all TN panel LCDs?

Full HD is a TV thing, for most computing uses it's actually a bad thing since things like webpages are largest vertically and Full HD has less height than the normal 24" resolution of 1920x1200. Of course, being smaller they are also cheaper.

I guess it's their cheaper price and not enough education leaving people thinking HD is always a good thing.

On the sides? There is some on TNs but it's usually fairly weak, the vertical colour shift is generally far more noticeable on a TN. Of course, if you're using it in portrait mode then it will be at the sides.


p.s. Nothing had 20,000 more CR. Even the best monitors only hit around 1500:1 CR. You're probably looking at the so-called dynamic contrast ratio which actually had nothing to do with the contrast measurement and is better called dynamic brightness. As far as I know the numbers for that have no defined measurement and so don't mean much.

@ ^... so in conclusion, what is this monitor "good" for, and what isn't it?

Nice price :thumbsup:

Could anyone please summarise the differences between this monitor, ]this monitor and ]this monitor?

I can afford all of them, but I have just got a new PC and am ordering a new graphics card - I want a setup that will hopefully last me a good few years! Using for watching movies, playing (fairly low-end and low-demand) games, and general browsing.

Many thanks, rep left for anyone who can help

I think the Dell has now expired, there aren't many reviews of the other two (although the little brother of the G2420HD the G2220HD gets a good review in Issue 072 of my Custom PC magazine.)

Main differences I can see are as follows.

3 year warranty on this compared to Benq's 1 year

70,000:1 Dynamic contrast ratio on the Samsung compared 40,000:1 on the Benq (Although most reviews I have read say the dynamic contrast ratio figures are nothing more than a sales gimmick).

Lastly the response time is 2ms on the Samsung compared to 5ms on the Benq (although on the Benq website it states 5ms / 2ms (GTG) so may be the same as the Samsung as Ebuyer state the 2ms as GTG)

Hope this helps:thumbsup:

does this monitor have a height adjustable stand?

Doesn't look like it, user manual can be found here.:thumbsup:

]http//do…pdf

That stand does not look at all safe/stable.

Anyone have any experience of it???

i'm also considering exactly the same list as you! The Dell IS still available, until 25/11. It is very tempting in that it has higher than HD resolution, but, from reading lots of reviews, this is perhaps more of a gimmick than anything else. That is, for movies you don't need more than HD resolution and, with the screen being only 23", the extra resolution will make text smaller.

A 16:9 one is good for is plugging in a console or blu-ray player without worrying if the picture will be stretched. Although a lot of monitors will show the picture properly anyway.

It makes little difference for a lot of Films, the top and bottom black bars will be slightly smaller on this.

For TV content and DVDs this won't have much in the way of circuitry to compensate for the low quality/low resolution signals so the picture won't look as good as a decent TV - although of course the TV will cost you a bit more.

It's not as good as a normal widescreen for documents, webpages, strategy gaming and most other PC uses compared to a normal 24" Widescreen, but 1080 vertical pixels is still decent - more than a 17" 1280x1024 monitor - so it's still going to be perfectly usable.

The main reason to go for this is that it's simply cheap.

Yeah, the dynamic contrast is meaningless, as is the response time difference.

The main difference is the Dell's Adjustable stand and built in USB webcam, as well as the extra resolution.

Only by 5%, and well within the limits caused by rounding stuff to the nearest inch anyway. You may find the monitor needs to be a couple of centimetres closer than a 23" 1920x1080 screen, but it won't have much effect.
