LCD Monitor

  brambles 22:08 04 Aug 2004

I am considering purchasing a Dell Ultrasharp 1901FP 19inch monitor.

I am satisfied my graphics card can contend with the native resolution.

What has confused me a little is that the monitor has 4 X USB2 Ports. I am assuming these are for ancillaries?

I only have USB1 on my computer and I connect most things through a USB1 Hub.

I'm just trying to establish that I have no compatibility problems before I purchase.

Any observations appreciated.

As a 17in LCD equates to a 19in CRT (I'm aware you mention a 19in TFT model) you might be interested in the fact that Staples has knocked £50 off a Samsung 17in TFT (£279).

It appears to be the SM172v judging by the illustration and specs (review at click here)

However, it doesn't seem to include USB ports and is analogue input, although the former can be acquired quite cheaply as pointed out by using a card.
