    This is an unbelievable bargain for the price. [​IMG]

    and we missed the introductory offer of £226!!

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

    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. :thumb:

    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! :eek:

    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.

    'You know what' came early..........

    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 [​IMG]

    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 :thumb:

    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 :thumb:

    I presume by 'bleeding' it means not being uniform in colour all over - ie lighter in places?


    If thats the case then it seems fine - black is nice and evenly dark all over :thumb:

    Nice setup Adywebb now is that some sort of mirror effect there or are they full towers?

    They look very impressive, neat work too.

    I have been thinking about that 22 inch Samsung Pebble for a while but seeing your setup and that sleek screen has somewhat changed my mind.

    Looks nice and £200 cheaper than the Dell 24" and about the same price as a Samsung 22" . Who says there isn't a Father Christmas .

    :D

    Nope - they are all mine used for crunching :D


    I only use the one monitor - if you look at the first pic you will see the KVM switch on the shelf below the keyboard ;)

    ooh lovely that's nice.

    There must be LOADS of plugs there too.

    Does that switch allow you to use all 10 servers then?
    Is it any good?

    (sorry for the 101 questions pal)
