Monitors - help please

  dnjl 15:25 01 Nov 07

Can anyone tell me if the following is a good monitor at £39 (with a package computer).

LG L196WTQ 19" wide HDCP/DVI/2MS/1440x900

I don't want to have to have speakers on my desk I haven't room - I'm happy with the ones that are embedded in my old monitor - Do all monitors have speakers inside them please?

What does 2MS stand for?

Also I have seen "D-sub" on other monitors offered with the package what does this stand for please anyone?

What does 2MS stand for?
The refresh rate at 2 miliseconds?
LG do make some good monitors.

D-sub is the normal blue analogue monitor type connector, as opposed to the newer, white, digital connector referred to as DVI.

DVI is supposedly better if your graphics card has a DVI output

This monitor retails for c£140. It does not have any speakers built in and you would need to buy additional speakers assuming you are replacing your old monitor with this one. Some monitors do have in-built speakers but sound quality is not usually of the best standard, but you are maybe used to that.
