LCD Monitor/TV Full HD, Around 22 Inch - Budget - £150

Found 27th Dec 2010
Hi all,

Looking for a decent monitor for my computer which will also double up as a freeview TV. Noticed an LED TV on here for £150 but never heard of the make and also it didnt have a DVI connection for my computer....

I've heard that standard VGA connection at high resolutions is not the best way to connect the computer.....

Any suggestions? Thanks in advance

Have a look on BestBuy for a Samsung B2230HD, it cost £169 but comes with the following connections VGA, DVI, 2 HDMI and a Scart. It also has a USB for viewing DivX, etc

22" Full HD TV with built in Freeview.

Thanks for letting me know..that Samsung was around 149 a few days ago from bestbuy but think its gone upto 168 now..!!

Do you know if it will play HD .mkv files? Thanks for you help MIB15

Hi, I don't have any HD .mkv files to test. Looking at the manual it looks like it plays just about everything.

See page 56 of the manual
