    Question Which TFT

    For getting into Uni, my parents have agreed to buy be a TFT monitor (cos I don't fancy carrying my 21" CRT up and down stairs and stuff!)

    I don't really know much about TFT's, I've never owned one. I don't do any graphics designing or stuff like that, so I'm not looking for an uber expensive one. I just need one that's good for gaming And work... of course

    I'm wondering if getting a 19" TFT defeats the object of an easy to carry monitor? If not, this seems like a pretty good deal:

    Otherwise, these look nice:

    http://www.ebuyer.com/customer/produ...duct_uid=46596

    £350 is about my limit, I think. Will have to nag my parents for anything more

    For gaming you'll be wanting the fastest response time possible.
    Try the NEC MultiSync® LCD1760NX - Damn fine and 16ms response time.

    Retails around £380...

    I got myself a CML174SXWB (Just try remembering that name!) 17" TFT in Black from Dabs.com. At £338, its within your budget too. Damn nice screen, bit bright (but you can turn that down), great contrast ratio (Very important) DVI or D-Sub connector and 16ms response time.

    Blacks can occaisonally all merge into one, but a bit of tuning soon sorts it all out! In fact the only problem was that I didn't buy it sooner!

    So from a forum newbie (Can you trust those?) its a strongly recommended screen! Well done on your Uni place too. Where you going?
    If the Earth is a sphere how do you travel to the ends of it?

    I'm running a dual display system with two of those black NEC 1760NXs (the front edge around the screen is actual a dark silver which you can't see on many pics).
    The bezel is really slim so they go real well side by side.

    They're totally the biz. Used to run a 22" Mitsusushi @ 1600x1200 -which is why I got 2 @ 1280x1024, but hey, I've got a job ;-) - but the CRT fried - never looked back.

    Plus think of all the extra desk space you'll gain for your books'n'student stuff!

    Thumbs up

    Found out that I can buy a TFT worth upto £350, so I'll probably get that NEC 1760NXs or LG 1710b.
