Is it this one. click here

What price are they selling it at.?

Looks good with a decent response time, which will be good for video and gaming, all just depends on the price.

Yes, that the one. £199.
does it have any (up and Down) adjustment?

Can't find any other info regarding the monitor, but all seems to be ok, with a 3 year onsite warranty.

There are another couple of ideas for you below, with more well known brand names, though they will cost a few £ more once you add delivery.

I myself have the LG model, and can thoroughly recommend it.

just noticed from BH34's posting, that the Lidl one has a 16Ms response, and not the 13Ms on the Targa website. With this in mind, I would go for one of the links I posted previously.

Thanks, for the advice. I saw this advert and wondered if it was any good as lidl do (sometimes) have bargains. BY the way i am a bit relectant to buy as my old 17" crt is still working !!!

If you have a come nearby, they have an LG 19 inch and an Acer 19 inch both with 12ms responses for £199.
