This seems an oustanding value based on the spec incl DVI - any comments please ?

I would recommend this Hanns.G 19" TFT click here, for £110 with DVI, better contrast ratio & 5ms response (from the official specs click here).

I've had mine for ~7 months & am very pleased. G

Crossbow7 - I think this has a response time of 8 ms but that does not matter - does this come with cables ? jarani

I would certainly consider either of the monitors but I do have concerns with getting a widescreen one as I play a lot of games.
Am I correct it saying that unless the game supports widescreen that the picture is just stretched making the game characters look rather weird?
And how does a normal web page as an example look on widescreen, I presume its stretched too?

'I think this has a response time of 8 ms but that does not matter' - you're right, a few ms here & there isn't going to make much difference!

'does this come with cables' - It comes with a VGA cable. I bought a DVI cable off eBay for under £5 delivered.

Remember that Amazon offers free standard delivery. G

Crossbow7 and others - many thanks for the advice - I do not play games so the games stretch, if any, would not bother me - I assume that the web pages would just accommodate greater width of the display without streching the text etc - if anybody knows I would appreciate advice on this - jarani

No, I've played games that don't support widescreen & there's no noticeable stretching/squashing. At times there can be black bands on either side (I haven't experienced it yet) which can be annoying I'd imagine, but there may be ways around all of these (see below).

All the games you play may have widescreen support. Have a look at the Widescreen Gaming Forum click here for games that do/don't & help/tips to solve/alleviate any problems.

No they're no stretched. Sometimes there are 'white' (or coloured) lines down either side, or the right side only, or none at all depending on the website - see fullsize screenshots (1440x900 res) PC Advisor forums click here, BBC homepage click here, MSE forums click here (all at reduced image quality as they weren't getting uploaded at their original size).

Crossbow7 - thanks

I started my computer life on 14" screen and moved to my present 17" screen about 2 years ago - the difference in the amount of display and ease of reading text was phenomenal - I assumed the 19" screen would improve it further

but, I have no experience of the wide screen display and you got me a little worried about the possible stretch - should I move to normal ratio 19" screen which may give a better display ? - jarani
