A cheapish flat screen monitor

  herc182 12:26 26 Mar 2008

Hey all.

been a while since i have been on this forum...

Just looking into a cheap flat screen (LCD i guess) for my monitor. 15 or 17 inch, no bigger.

Ideally under £150.

Anyone recommend one?

I bought a 17" one from Argos recently as an upgrade to a 15" CRT for an old PC, it cost £100 and is a great little performer. Hre's a 19", a bit larger than you want but it'll give you an idea. click here

I have been very pleased with the Acer AL1716 I bought some time ago, and this one is under £100 click here

what are the things to look for?

From what i can gather, brightness, viewing angle, response time and resolution are key.

There are so many out there that I cant make heads or tales of them.

What about dead pixels? are they prevalent on some models over others?

also, is there a big difference with VGA or DVI input? If i remember right, the colours are "truer" with the latter...

You will not see no difference, your eye will not detect it
