Nice, but for a 24-26" monitor I would expect at least 1920x1200 or 2560x1600.

For a PC, when you are sitting up close to the screen, 1920x1080 is best experienced on a smaller monitor such as 21.5-23". Then you have really detailed images. Increasing the screen size but not the resolution only reduces the detail levels when you are up close to the screen.

So if I was to use this for gaming & SD DVDs on my Xbox 360 would there be a decrease in 1080p image quality compared to a 22 inch display? I'd be sitting about 6 ft away.

I have the monitor. It does 1080p. And has HDMI, but no speakers. I believe there's an audio out port however so any HDMI you plug in will just end up putting audio out through that port.

isn't 1920*1080 more of a TV resolution. ?

both my monitors are 1920*1200

there are 23 independent reviews on ebuyer and appear very good indeed . definately worth reading

i have one of these, nice monitor. I use mne for my laptop and 360

I've seen much cheaper good-brand new 24" 1080 monitors recently, what makes this one worth £175? Seems a bit high to me if its just a standard TN 24". Not voted.

In that case its an awful review and complete bull. It is 1080p.

Been using this since xmas as a monitor for gaming etc, and its awesome. Was okay for console gaming too, but anyone serious about console gaming will already have a huge flatscreen anyway.

Got it for the same price as this too off ebuyer :thumbsup:

Yes and no

TFT screens used to be made at 16:10 (i.e. 1920 x 1200). However, 16:9 is the new hip format - it lets people say 1080p and it also saves them a bit of money when making the screen!

Laptops are now pretty much all 16:9 - and most new monitors are going that way as well. Some think it's good, some think it's bad.

Manual is available here

Decided to vote cold, I really don't see why this is even on the front page.

Got this for £190, bump. Great monitor though.

Any examples?

For games or as a spare - hot price

I've been looking at getting this; amazon.co.uk/Sam…1-1,

however i'd prefer a 24" monitor, is it possible to hook this up to a freeview box?

It has HDMI, so theoretically, yes.

TN for this price? I would rather get a 22' IPS

Do a search mate, there have been countless cheap 24" deals on this site.

:xOk, I might regret this, but I am just sick of reading nonsense about TVs & Monitors on here, so have some facts....

Anyone who thinks that the fact that this monitor is 24" and 1920x1080 makes it unsuitable for a PC has never used it with a PC.

Anyone who thinks that because this monitor does not have integrated speakers means that you cannot output PS3 audio without an expensive audio system is wrong too.

This Monitor IS capable of 1080p (and IS capable of 1080p with PS3).

This Monitor is simply brilliant.

I have it linked to a PS3 (With PlayTV) & a PC and it is perfectly capable of producing quality images for both, (and you can switch between the two inputs just by touching the frame of the monitor).

I have £5 worth of 2.0 standard PC speakers in the back of the Monitor and these reproduce the PS3 sound that comes down the HDMI connectiion. The PC is connected through DVI simultaneously and I have the PC sound output via headphones plugged directly into the PC... Simples

Oh, for those people who only buy products based on fancy specification figures which they have read about, fear not....Its specifications are immense 70000:1 Dynamic Contrast, 2ms refresh, 1080p... now get a room. - seriously have you never laughed at the guy that goes to a TV shop and walks round reading all the spec sheets instead of looking at the picture on the screen???

For those (intelligent) people who would rather buy products based on side by side viewed performance, rest assured because I have been to local retailers, looked at ALL the screens.... for me this screen is equal to or perhaps even better than any 1920x1200 screens or other "higher resolution" screens I have seen.

Finally, for those who think "maybe I should buy a big 1080p telly instead", sure, go part with your money, but you will be spending one heck of a lot more than £175 though.

Also, whether you buy this or anything else, maybe ask yourself how much do you actually use that is 1080p resolution anyway???, for example FIFA 10 on PS3 is not even 1080p, so look at the back of your games boxes to see how many display in 1080p... and what else do you use that is even HD at all? Freeview is NOT HD (I know Freeview HD is due out soon, but dont expect to be watching HD programmes... BBCHD has only a handful of programmes daily and ITVHD only seems to have 2 programmes daily.... so you will be watching SD TV on an expensive HD TV... now thats just daft!

SD looks best on an SD screen...FACT. I have an old 25" Thomson SD TV the size of a washing machine and its picture quality (for SD signals) is far superior to any HD screen I have viewed SD signals on anywhere....FACT.

But if you choose to disagree, fine... go back to your SD freeview picture thats displayed badly on your 1080p HD telly from your 1080p HD Freeview box thats connected to your 1080p HD Digital aerial installation. Sucker.

Aaaah, feel better know...I will shut up

That's funny. I've been looking at this and the ]BenQ G2420HD monitors all day trying to figure out which is better. I need to use for an external display as well as to hook up a blu-ray player.

The Samsung has a dot pitch of 0.265 and so the screen size is actually 23" and not 24 as they state. The BenQ has a dot pitch of 0.2765 and so is a true 24" monitor for £155 at oyyy.co.uk.

Oh FFS *bangs head on wall*

Do you never come on this site?

Anyone who comes on here regularly, will know brand name monitors of the same specs are regularaly available for much less money

it might be a good deal on this model but it's a poor deal on the 24 inch TN screen. the dell one which was on here couple of weeks ago is much hotter.

Cold deal! £174.99 for a 24" Monitor!! Just because its samsung doesnt warrant the extra cash, i would rather go for the benQ LED monitor posted here a while back, seems to be getting rave reviews on the overclockers forum and its £20 less, also has built in speakers for use with the PS3 or XBOX. If i could go back in time though i would snap up the dell monitor.

I think you'll find its got a DVI-D input but no hdmi but its still HDCP compliant and you can get a HDCP hdmi to Dvi-D cable from ebay for around £3. Unless you've got a spare graphics card hdmi adapter lying around. In which case you wont need to fork out for the cable.

I am having a bit of difficulty deciding on which monitor to buy (24")

There are quite a few and they all come in various qualities. The best I believe is this one: ]http//ww…i/1
but its £300.

Here are few websites that help:
]http//ww…h=1
]http//ww…uk/

In regards to 1920x1080 vs 1920x1200, 1200 is better and the screen is just as wide but also taller, which is better for a pc, both my current monitors are 1080 and i can live with it but would prefer the extra height in a new monitor.

If you have any recommendations please list them:thumbsup:

Yep, sorry. My problem is that I'd want to connect a Mac, via DVI and a Blu-Ray player via HDMI (but obviously with a HDMI-DVI adapter). Unfortunately there's not two of those on the monitor. No idea why they decide to have a D-Sub instead of maybe a DVI and HDMI or maybe even all 3

shame hasn't got hdmi connection but still good deal
