if it's just for internet / office type stuff then for that price you can't go wrong.

If you're wanting it for gaming, watching DVD's, or for accurate photo work, I'd advise you to see it working first

thanks keef66
yes its for office work mainly. i was wondering if the monitor was a reliable one or do they all seem to last as long as each other because if it's going to go off just out of warrenty or not even last that long then i would rather pay the extra for a better one

How long's the warranty? Most well known makes come with a 3 yrs manufacturers warranty, and you generally get a replacement rather than a repair.

(I just got a samsung 205bw 20" widescreen, and it's brilliant, but it cost just over £200)

it doesn't say. i had assumed it was 1 year like with most things but it may be more

I don't think the price includes VAT.

Have a look here click here=|c:917|&Sort=0

Look under TFT/LCD Monitors click here

It's a reasonable spec but the price of £120 inc VAT & delivery is not good. Look at ebuyer click here. and there are a number that are £90-110 inc everything of equal or better spec. And you can get another £10 off if you use Google checkout

Woolwell - i have checked it out & your right it doesn't include vat. & thanks for the links

lenc - thanks for the link i will look at it later when i finish work
