I seem to think the Dabs Value Monitors are rebranded AOC monitors. The model numbers are the same they just changes it from AOC to Dabs Value. You mention the Dabsvalue LM520A well there's a AOC LM520A if ya get my drift. The 17" are the same. I have the 17" AOC and i'm very happy with it
Its only £298 at Staples. Out of stock when I called but in at end of January. The Medion 17" at same price is in middle of this month, so they said at Cricklewood branch, London. Am advised to ring in before calling. It seems the price is going to keep falling so it may pay to wait a while.
Just to add that they have 5.1 medion speakers at £39 which I think is an amazing deal if I did.nt have one already.This consists of one amp+subwoofer and 5 satelite speakers, one centre, two front and two rear.
If you want a 17 inch TFT with DVI connection PCW are advertising the Philips 170 B2 for £399. ( a bummer for me as I purchased when it was £499!). Significantly more than the others suggested but I don't think any of them have DVI? ?I'm very satisfied with mine. Over to you for the hard part - the decision :>}
