hi people, i am thinking of upgrading my monitor i have a 19" viewsonic vx922 i think it was.

click here for a Samsung 2232BW, at £160 if you click here

I have owned this one for a while now and its brilliant. I use it mostly for gaming.

Don't ask me why, but I'd probably choose the LG. They all appear very similar in specs, with the Samsung not having a dedicated HDMI port, unlike the other two which do. You'll need to visit the individual manufacturer's website to look for/compare the minor differences.

The LG is cheaper at Dabs (£156 delivered) click here & eBuyer (£157 delivered) click here - if you choose their free delivery options.

If you go for the Asus, it's cheaper at Dabs (£158 delivered) click here. Likewise with the Samsung at Dixons (£157 delivered) click here. G

mr simon, I think you'll find your Samsung's res is 1680x1050, while project 90 appears to be looking for a 'Full HD' 1920x1080 res screen. G

You are correct Crossbow7, please ignore my suggestion.

Whatever you purchase and where from, make sure of your warranty entitlements. I do not know if the same rule applies, but one well known retailer had an agreement with monitor manufacturers of only providing a one year warranty, in the off chance that the customer would purchase an additional 2 year extended warranty. Other retailers provided a free 3 year warranty supported by the retailer and manufacturer.

I notice that there are a number of Viewsonic 22" around at present, with a price tag of just over £100.00.

I've just bought a Benq G2420HD 24" widescreen from Dabs for £145 + delivery

(Reviewed in this month's PC Pro magazine)

3 years on site warranty

I am blown away by the screen quality

At least read the review before you buy

I was thinking LG or Samsung both £50 dearer but glad I went for this
