Well, I paid £140 for my 17" LCD almost a year ago. It's a real budget monitor, made by Digimate. But, it plays all of my games fine and has no dead pixels and quality is good enough for me. That monitor would be a luxury!!!

Sounds good from what you've written.

yea I was looking at that one too, can get it for 299€s...

but 20 inch widescreen is really small. Not even as high as a 17 inch from what I know, and as you mentioned the analog input.

Thats why I am saving up for the 24 inch Dell...

anyways yea let us know ;) make a few shots from your PC *G* should look sweet!

cheers

i have had a 17 inch cheap-ish lcd 4 x 3 for about a year praps a bit less.. before that i had a 19 inch crt.. so i went down a bit with the lcd.. the lcd works very nice thow.. better than i expected to be honest..

i have a 15 inch widescreen laptop.. i kinda like the 16 x 10 ratio from that i spose..

the 20 inch widescreen works out at about the same height as the standard 17 inch and about two inches wider each side.. so its like a wider 17 inch..

20 inch widescreen = 10" by 17" a normal 17 is about 10" x 13".. less actual screen area than a normal 19 inch definitely.. i think a 24 wide would be about the same height as a normal 19 only wider.. seems to be how it works out..

they can still be pricey.. anything out of the norm always is.. that one i kinda bought on impulse cos of its price..i never went looking for one.. he he he.. cant find any reviews on em thow..

trog

ps.. its a luxury for me jimmy.. i sometimes "impluse" buy the odd luxury.. if i think about it too much i save my money.. he he

well its arrived.. so far i like it.. running it at 1400 x 900.. everything seems tooo small at its native 1680 c 1050 resolution.. stretched games seem okay.. kinda like shorter stocky guys instead of tall thin ones.. he he

Ew, it stretches it instead of just rendering it as wide screen? That's kind of gay.

some games support 16 x 10 aspect ratios most dont.. fullscreen just kinda stretches things out wider.. it dosnt look quite as noticable as u would think.. one of the things i wasnt sure of..

after useing the new monitor for a few days.. it isnt "toooo budget".. it has a TN type screen matrix.. good responce times but slighly poorer viewing angles than more expensive type screen matrixes.. so they tell me.. but it looks okay to me..

i like the wide screen factor.. same height as a 17 inch 4 x 3 but 4 inches wider.. my viewing distance is about three feet.. any bigger would be too big at this distance..

it seems well enough made and looks nice.. the blacks in dark and shadowy type games like doom 3 dont all merge into one like they tend to on some lcd screens.. but the whites tend to burn out a little.. so its biased on the too bright side if anything..

not quite as colourfull as my previous 17 ich monitor (which was very good) but probably more realistic..

all in all it dosnt seem a bad little toy.. perfectly suitable for general purpose use..

the analog only imput dosnt seem to harm the picture quality at all..
