Default Looking for a 19" widescreen monitor

Hello,

I am looking for 19" widescreen monitor for my computer.

Has anybody got any recommendations, and if so please could they send me a link to a UK website.

Also, can someone explain what HDMI, and DVI mean, apparently they are good things to have in a computer screen.

Thanks

tim

Samsung are good but expensive...you could get a 20.1 or so for that price.

That's what Im saying..they are very good monitors no doubt but I would rather have a 20.1 inch or actually even a good 22inch Acer with say 800:1 contrast and 5ms than that.

Not a 20inch as those are expensive, you want a 20.1 screen as they are widescreen.

Yes i think thats VERY good.

read the customer reviews, 29 people gave it a 100% rating so it must be good


Next day delivery it comes to £140

Saver delivery (within 5 days) comes to £129

Plus a 3 year warranty.


I'll definately be getting one
