Fujitsu Lifebook P727 laptop review
i'm not desperate to buy a new monitor but have seen this one at pc world, curry's and dixons all for the same price in a sale:
HEWLETT PACKARD W19 19" WIDESCREEN FLAT PANEL MONITOR
i currently have a 19" crt monitor with a res of up to 1600 x 1200, 80htz refresh rate.
i heard it's quite good but is this new monitor worth the money and will the gaming experience look as good on this tft?
any advice would help
a quick response would be nice as i am eager to buy tomorrow if your advice is positive.
ok i get your point i'll wait.
i'll have a look at your links when i finish work.
thankyou both for your replies.
until i return feel free to give me any pointers about which monitor to choose.
i have a small understanding of tft etc.
response time has to be 4ms these days.
and.......oh i can't remember......have to go to work anyway......lol

ok now i've started looking at all these i am getting more and more confused with there sales tech blarble.....
the one's i am looking at seem to be similar to the pc world monitor in terms of spec and price.
lower res and same response time........
ok now i really have to go to work
post back later
Have one arriving today. A friend has one and is very pleased with it. Deals with games well.
See the Samsung site reference their stance on dead pixels. Good standard compared to others.
ok back from work now. at £189 it seems good.
the pc world monitor was
£149 so i have to have this figure as my budget.
all the monitors i've looked at are either more expensive or simply have similar features.
would i be right in saying that the most important features are:
price,viewable screen size,resolution,response rate,pixel pitch and contrast ratio and connection type(dvi opposed to vga).
are there any other features that should be considered as a higher priority?
all help is welcome. by the time i've figured this out the prices will have come down anyway!!
i've just read up about grey to grey time being more important than response time.
the article also said that most of the time this info isn't stated by the manufacturer or retail seller.
any comments on this would be great and on my previous post.
