    19" TFT widescreen

    I've just got one of these 19" acer widescreen, and they are fantastic value, only £154 for a 19" would be a bargin, but widescreen to boot!

    I have this monitor at home, and I'm really impressed. Obviously it's massive, but the image quality is very good, and the pixel response time is 8ms!

    I bought one of these last week to go with my new rig...

    Really nice and excellent value.

    Yup, you need a DVI/VGA adaptor but for the price I really like it. Good response time and resolution good enough.

    dunno, I already had one from my Sony 15" TFT. I'll check at home later.
    It's just a normal VGA lead!

    Re: 19" TFT widescreen

    Or the other catch being that the supplier is Misco but I won't go there presume other suppliers have it too>

    Re: 19" TFT widescreen

    Plenty! Dabs, Amazon, all the usual suspects. I just mentioned Misco because thats where I got mine from. Called them Tuesday, it arrived on Wednesday. I must admit I was pleasently suprised!

    I'd ordered lots of stuff (built a new rig), and they said that the 19"was out of stock and I had to wait till Jan, which I was happy to do,as it's such a bargin, but it turned up all the same.

    Wonder if I'll get one in Jan as well by mistake!!??!!

    Re: 19" TFT widescreen

    I suppose it's a bit of a catch: a 19" widescreen has less screen area than a 19" 'narrow' screen (because it's less square and they're measuring the diagonal). I suspect it'll be less tall than a 17" judging by the piccy.

    This is probably why so many laptops are widescreen now (aside from the portable DVD-player angle).
