    Cool 24' moniter choices

    I'm looking to get a 24" moniter it the next few days. The obvious choices are;

    24" Dell 2407WFP-HC = http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=653472
    24" LG L245WP = http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=644783
    24" HyundaiIT W240D = http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=677404 24" Samsung SM-245B 24" = http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=608174
    24" Iiyama PLB2403WS-B1 = http://www.scan.co.uk/Products/Produ...oductID=647803

    Well which one shall I get then.
    I know the dell is the best but the Samsung and the Iiyame are £100 cheaper and thats the point of this thread.

    Another question; can these moniters receive an analog signal signal through a sky or ntl box.
    Thankyou

    The dell has all the inputs you might want (tv, console etc..) and its fantastic to use. If you can afford the extra go for it!

    Don't think you can get 24' monitors!

    I'm planning on getting the Dell this week as soon as my new credit card arrives. It uses a better panel and is far more flexible for what I want. PCBuyIt are doing it for £410, and that's with 4 years warranty and a no dead pixel guarantee (better than Dell's 4-5 standard).

    Re: 24' moniter choices

    I would go with the Dell, i own the 2007wfp and am very happy with it. Pretty much faultless. More expensive than other manufacturers but as they say, you get what you pay for.

    I have a 24" Samsung 245BW and am quite happy with it. Keep in mind Dell does not make their panels, they buy them from Samsung, Phillips and LG (depending on model) so you may be looking at a few monitors that are quite similar but for different enclosures/subtle features.

    quite happy as in, 'I probably should have got the dell'? with the analog input, will it work like in the dell, so will sky/ntl boxes work?

    Re: 24' moniter choices

    the analog input is just VGA. If you can get a vga to - whatever you need convertor then it will work I guess.

    Re: 24' moniter choices

    I see, so the Dell has DVI for your computer and the composite for your xbox 360 and sky/ntl (SD) tv?

    Re: 24' moniter choices

    On the Dell, there is: -

    1 x Component Video
    1 x Composite
    1 x D-Sub
    1 x DVI-D
    1 x S-Video

    You can have your PC connected to the DVI, Xbox to the VGA or Composite (the 3 coloured one), and your Sky/Ntl connected to the single Composite video (the yellow one).

    There's a good picture of the connections here.

    Re: 24' moniter choices

    The only issue with the dell is the bad ghosting problem that a lot of people are reporting...this only happens on the newer HC model...not the slightly older 2407...dell are apparently working on a fix but it is still existant at the moment...
    this is a good thread to keep an eye on

    Re: 24' moniter choices

    My old man got himself a Samsung SM-245B, and I have to say, I find myself just standing there looking at it sometimes, it's absolutely superb. That's probably going to be my next buy.

    Re: 24' moniter choices

    I have not experienced any ghosting or color blur with my Samsung 245bw but I have on occassion seen some "Banding" on video playback during a few games. I have not seen any banding during actual game play though.

    Re: 24' moniter choices

    spade99: Does that monitor have any "DV modes"? If so, they can sometimes cause banding, but having it set to normal doesn't. That happens on my monitor.

    What monitor are you using currently?

    P.S> I'm due to buy a new monitor soon, but I'm wary of the 24" monitors because of the extra PC power they need over the likes of a 20" - 22".

    I'm surprised the BenQFP241W wasn't included on your list;

    highly recommended (by little ol' me)

    the benQ is very expensive though..you could almost get a 2707wfp for that price.

    Re: 24' moniter choices

    Thanks for all your inputs. I think its just the choice between the dell and the samsung. The dell having all the inputs and a better panel? The samsung being &#163;100 cheaper and having less inputs and a less superior panel?
    The question is; do I really need the extra connections?
    With the dvi on the samsung, It can take a xbox 360.
    If that is correct then I am losing is the ability of having a xbox and a pc connected at the same time and not being able to connect a sky/ntl box?
    I don't mind losing sky/ntl support to much for the &#163;100 save, but is the &#163;100 worth paying for the screen quality?
