monitor price difference

  turismo 16:49 08 Oct 2005

why is that 2 different make of monitors have differing prices even though the spec r same

Just becuase the spec is that same does not mean they are both manufactured inthe same way. Different companies have different overhead, manufacturing process, etc.

do they differ in quality of images etc

  sharkfin 19:40 08 Oct 2005

erm it really depends. But I would always try to get some reviews on a particular product if I was thinking of buying something.

How about a Samsung SyncMaster 930BF.

You can read some positive reviews as well: click here

This is just a recommendation on the basis that you seem to want something with a fast response time, but there are plenty of 19" TFT with loads of reviews on that website. Hope it helps.

You could ask the same question about anything e.g. Why do two different makes of cars of the same spec, have different prices.

In the example of monitors, the spec's might be the same, but the quality of materials used in manufacture will differ. Also, one make may have tilt/swivel facilities whereas the other might not. The only way to really find out the difference, is to compare them side by side when they are in operation. Also,it is better to buy from a manufacturer with a well known name and a good after-sales service.

which manufacturere would u recommend for tft moniotrs

I personally buy from Iiyama, they have a very good reputation. But read the reviews in PCA.

It is still doing sterling service.

They say that most faults occur in the first couple of months use.

You should be prepared for a few dead pixels on the less expensive TFTs. This has a couple in one corner. Unless they are right in the middle of your sight line or very prominent, they are a hazard of buying at the cheaper end of the market.

To sum up.

Go and have a look at what's on offer, if you like it and it's in your price range. Buy.

You will get it cheaper on-line, but some-one will have to be at home to accept delivery, about a week or so later.
