GOT A QUESTION, I have a nice 14.1 inch laptop with quite powerful procesor T9300, 8400 graphics VGA connector, and I want to connect an external monitor, will the graphic performance be the same as on internal one? What if I use two monitors? Then performance is worse? Or is no difference playing a game on int. or ext. one? Please answer!

By 'graphics performance' I assume you mean gaming or some other sort of rendering? If so then it's all about the number of pixels. This has 1920 x 1080 pixels (around 2 million) so if your laptop's screen has a similar resolution than just driving this will have the same performance, but if your laptop screen is only 1280x800 or 1366x768 then you've only got around a million pixels to deal with there and this screen with 2 million pixels will give you quite a bit poorer performance. If you want to drive both screens independently then you have to add the number of pixels together - although simply copying the screen doesn't impact performance.

You can of course feed this a lower resolution (less pixels) and get your graphics card to scale it up to the monitor's full resolution but you do lose a little quality doing that and of course anything that depends on resolution (such as the interface and text in many games) will show up bigger than it would at a real 1920x1080 resolution. The monitor will likely also scale it up for you but at this price it's not likely to make a very good job of it which is why it's preferable to tell the graphics card to do it (with desktop graphics cards anyway, I assume laptop ones are capable of it as well).

If you're just talking about normal picture quality and refresh rate or non-graphics processing programs then it won't make any difference, all graphics cards of the last few years are more than powerful enough to display two screens perfectly at whatever settings you want.


As for the deal, well... why is it a deal? It seems somewhat expensive for a 24" 1920x1080 TN with a basic stand. Something like the BenQ G2420HD is similar and cheaper.

Was using one of these saturday down my sisters when I had some time, as my nephew has one bloody great monitor this one and could not get off it :-D

Thanks for reply!

I was thinking about getting this until I read this review: digitalversus.com/art…tml
It doesn't display 1080p? Now I'm not so sure...

It's a monitor, not LCD/LED, if you want 1080p for computing, get a tv

Voting hot - Good find

That seems a bit odd? isnt 1080p 1920x1080 resolution?

infact here it says it will ? avforums.com/for…tml

i have this monitor, bought it for just over 180 a few months ago after reading the reviews. It certainly lives up to them. The none reflective screen is ideal in any light and the picture is definitely 1080 resolution. I've had my ps3 and computer both plugged into it running at that resolution and it looks excellent. The only thing is that there is no built in speakers for the hdmi in lead however it does have a headphone jack that I connected to my surround sound and works well
heat and rep added

any ideas as to whether its better than the 24" BenQ LED one thats cheaper?

looks sik

can you connect your ps3 using a hdmi cable??

yeah had mine on it fine just no sound unless you connect speakers to the monitor too

The fact you said this means you are seperating TVs and PC monitors in your mind, which is just what all the companies want isnt it... Ill buy two things when one could do the same job if they werent ripping us off left right and center by not putting in poxy 1080 support.

Depends, I'm happy with using a LED as a monitor. People are saying it displays at 1080p anyway no?

Get the ]Samsung XL2370 LED Monitor instead... problem solved (if you have the £)! :thumbsup:

I have this monitor paid same price as OP 6 months ago. I have two other 24inch Samsung LCD monitors and this one is easily the best.It definitely displays at 1080p on DVI and HDMI. I have mine connected via DVI to my Macbook pro and also my PS3 via HDMI. The cool thing about this monitor is the 3.5mm jack and optical out port for HDMI. This enables you to connect headphones or external speakers for the PS3. It's really thin and looks top class on my table. The touch sensitive buttons also add a nice feel to the monitor.

Voted Hot.

It'll obviously display 1920x1080 when hooked up to a PC via DVI, it sounds like it might have problems with the HDMI port - I'm surprised they haven't elaborated on it.

Are you mad? I don't want to have to pay an extra £50 on the price of a monitor to have a TV tuner and picture processing for low quality sources built in when I'm just connecting it to a PC.


I wish somebody would explain why this is a hot deal though considering you can get similar screens for at least £20 cheaper.

A lot of very good ebuyer deal on this website seems they have lifted the ban any heat added

I can tell you catagorically that it does display 1080p. I have my xbox 360 plugged into it and in the 360 menu and the menu on the monitor it states the display as 1920x1080p.
I have also run blu-rays through my ps3 on it at 1080p.
Whoever wrote that review is a retard and should be sacked.
This monitor is ace, i've benn using it for about 3 months.
