Need new lcd monitor

  the Rascal 13:04 03 Jan 2010

I wander if someone of the forum can help,I'm lookin for a wide screen monitor to replace my old tft.I'm not a a gamer, and am lookin for something either 20 or 22 inch for around £100-£130.I would just like to go in a store and bye it, rather than order on line as i live in a flat.
So,i have looked through the mainstraem stores online but couldn't decide which one was best for the money,
If anyone could recommend something i would be very gratefull

At PC world there's a fair range; look at their web site. HP, LG and Samsung would be on my list if i were buying. There seem to be three resolutions 1680x1050, 1600x900 and 1920x1080. The latter, by HP is £140 which, to me seems a bargain. However it has only a 1 year warranty whereas others might have three year warranties. There's also an Acer 22.5" which might have a 2-year warranty

you can use the PC World web site to reserve stock so as to make sure what you want is available when you get to the store

Perhaps better to buy online and collect in-store if you must. As well as PC World/Currys (same company) John Lewis, Carphone Warehouse and Argos have this facility. Check their websites to see if anything suits.

I've just bought an LG 20 inch from PC World (W2043S), looks fine, £110. They also have the 22 inch for £130. I would have got one from John Lewis, but they only had a couple. I wanted it as a secondary monitor, my other one is a 22 inch Samsung.

As sunnystaines The Samsung are very nice. I bought one a few months ago after my LG flat screen caught fire. I'm really pleased with it, & others have commented on the image quality.

Whatever you get if your graphics card gives you the option use the Digital output it does make a difference esp with small text, & high quality images.

I recenly bought a very nice one from MISCO, for under £100, . If you do not want it delivered to your flat, they will deliver it to your local post office ( I believe there is a small fee), where you can collect it when you are ready.

Other companies may do the same Ask!.

Carrying from Terry Brown, MISCO send a nice catalogue full of temptation. It's worth signing up for.
