I've been using one of the Novatech branded 15" TFTs for 2 years now. There were no dead pixels on receipt and none have since developed. DVD playback is good but as I'm not a gamer I don't know what it would be like with fast action.
Although their email support is non-existent phone support is excellent.
Yes, but If I was you I would hold back for a while, I have heard that there is a new type of monitor due for release. This is rumoured to have the best of both TFT, and CRT without the drawbacks of either.
I can't seem to find any more info on this yet, and so have no Idea of the quality, specs. or prices. Maybe someone could help with this? j.
just had a tour round retail outlets, several have broken down monitors. dixons had one displayed as "latest technology" when i asked the sales boy why it had such a poor display and could he adjust it the reply was no its old stock you can't improve the picture.
after finding the above a bit worried what i my get mail order over the net, the dabs site looked good but the bad reports in the forum have put me off.
some web sites offer good prices but they do not display any real address or phone number just email and web cotact which worries me a little saw a nice dell ultrasharp 19" only £419 from "cosuk" anyone heard of this outfit?
The Iiyama 19inch offers 1600 x 1200 res., my monitor is the 20.1 model; gives 600:1 contrast, high brightness, etc. The 19inch came out later and seems a better buy, ...but still seems high compared with some 18inch monitors. I started out trying to buy the PCA top of review Fuji/Siemans 20.1inch, but didn't like the bad pixel pre-conditions by Dabs and others. The Iiyama 20.1 inch I bought had mostly the same specs (but £200 more) so I wonder if it is by the same maker? I was influenced by a comment/opinion in PCA mag that you need to go to this size to really enjoy TV/DVD.
