DVI/Analogue LCD Monitor (and the best?)

  Smudge 10:37 03 Jul 2003

I'm looking at LCD monitors at the moment (17 inch). Is it worth getting DVI over Analogue?. Anyone got any views on which are the best LCD monitors-I've been looking at CTX or LG.

The best, of course, are EIZO but they are pricey which is why I haven't got that make. Halifax Bank have equipped all their offices with them. The more expensive models are equipped with both analogue and DVI connections.

An LG1710B which comes with both DVI and analogue connectors. It is a great monitor and the USB hub is very useful as well.

A DVI connection to a digital output card produces great results, but even the analogue connection is pretty good, it just, IMHO, lacks a little sharpness.

I'm sure others will have different views though.

I've just bought an LG 1710B for £360 from anyweb PC's which is loacal to me, but I think they'll deliver too. (Cheaper than anywhere I've found online, the online shop doesn't give the choice thay can get hold of for you.)

I've just plugged it in, easy to set up, comes with software to help set up colours. DVI and analogue. All cables supplied.

The main differences between the B &S are that the 1710B includes USB ports on the stand and is thinner than the 1710S.

Looks great on Apps, Games and DVD's. Highly recommended :-D click here

I've just purchased an iiyamma 18.1" AS4612UTBK with DVI output from Scan.co.uk and simply cannot fault it. I doubt you will find a nicer looking monitor and it's a dream to use Cad with this screen. I recomend you have a look. The iiyama site list price is, £633.00 inclusive of VAT, my purchase £492.33 total! and that includes carriage.

I would definitely go with DVI .It gives considerably better picture wit much more vibrant colours. Only thing is that DVI cable can cost anything up to £20.

think the Amazon deal also includes the dvi cable ( by the way i don't work for amazon) ...
