    i need to get some ideas on monitors, see im going to be getting one in November for myself but i just wanted to know any good ones just now

    i want to get a LCD 22inch for around £150

    just want to know what the market for monitors is like



    anything is better than this POS 17 inch CRT

    oh and it must also have a VGA port for the xbox 360 VGA adapter

    yeah its not like i only want a Samsung i have been looking at other monitors but it seems they are the best monitors for image quality and style

    i seen a few monitors on www.cclononline.com but the samsungs only have DVI i need 2 inputs one DVI for the pc and one VGA for the xbox 360

    I am using the Acer Al2223W and it's great. Should be pretty cheap these days and has the VGA port. I like it better than my friends LG 22".

    Samsung LCDs come with adaptors so your VGA XBOX360 would be fine. I'm using 2 monitors myself with 2232BW+. One DVI and VGA.

    I use an Asus vw222u

    http://www.chip.de/preisvergleich/88936/Asus-VW222U.html

    I'm pretty satisfied, really good monitor, just the default brightness was too high. But eh, you can adjust that... bought it some time ago for 350 CHF wich is roughly around 160 pounds

    Edit: Damn, forgot it does not have a VGA port... no adapter lying around?

    the BenQ seems to be the best budget monitor

    This is what I have:

    http://www.argos.co.uk/webapp/wcs/s...alogId=1500001151&langId=-1&searchTerms=p223w

    F**ckin amazing if you can stretch to it. Defo worth the extra, and its the cheapest you can get it fom anywhere. So If there are dead pixels you can take it back, (seems only computer retailers are aware of the max dead pixel return policy).

    Has DVI and VGA.

    And has a crysalbrite screen. So glossy, cant explain how good it looks. IMO it looks better than my dads S panel Samsung which was £50 more.

    Yeah, its a pretty good monitor, i just got one myself last week (i hadnt planned to either, but my lovely old 21" crt packed up :()

    I have another samsung 19" lcd (931bw) and this thing is very similar quality, not quite as good as a PVA panel, but they're still over £300 usually

    free delivery too!
