This is an unbelievable bargain for the price.

and we missed the introductory offer of 226!!

I'm almost tempted to get one and sell the 22" Sammy.....

The fact that it looks a little cheap compared to the classy look 2232BW i have, imo puts me off a little, but the reviews its getting are very good.

Anyone heard of TFTCentral? On of the mods at the OcUK forums is the guy that runs that website and writes the reviews. He had this to say about the 22" Samsung V's the 24" DGM

Thats a very very good price and spec . A lot cheaper than my Dell , which I would not part with but I might not have bought it if I'd seen that first .

Indeed some are having problems, dead pixels etc, but most are happy, some on there have bought one to sit next to their DELL 24" and ended up selling the DELL and getting another one of these!

If you dont want to read through the whole thread, (and its about 1000 posts now!)

The biggest bad point it the stand and an overly bright power LED it seems, other than that its all good.

This guys posted all the useful stuff here, so feel free to ave a read.

I dont think i'll be getting one, possibly the beer talking last night!

However if i still had my 19" viewsonic, it would be a different story.

Well I went and bought one of these from OcUK for 239-63 (Delivered) and installed it today..................and I have to say its really rather nice

No dead pixels and the display is very good at 1920 x 1200 even using my little MSI ATi Radeon RX1050 GPU - when I swap it for a X1950 Pro I have in one of my crunchers I should imagine it will be even better.

If I'm going to moan, I would agree with others that the blue 'power on' LED is too bright, but I will just put a little bit of black tape over it, and the base is a bit plasticky and only tilt adjustable.

I've attached a couple of pics, hopefully you can see what I mean about the bright power LED in the second one.

Overall for the price I think its very good

Very neat setup(s) you have there, I've got the same case (the ones on the right) but in Black.

I'm pleased it's a good monitor, it might tempt people in to one now that it has a thumbs up I'm amazed they can sell it for that price
