    Just ask a few resellers for some prices on the Neovo ones. They cost about £160 for the 17" ones.

    There is also the Xerox XA7 range but they really seem to have shot up in price recently

    I have had quotes for them as well and they fell just under the Neovo ones, but I stuck with Neovo as I know they are good kit.

    Re: Can anyone recommend suppliers and £ of Hard Glass TFT Monit

    I just put in an order with CCL for 33 of these at something like £147 ex vat each but they seem to be having trouble sourcing stock at the moment as my order is delayed.

    I bought them from RM before and got free delivery but even with the £100 delivery from CCL they are still cheaper than RM this time. I think the RM price has gone up from before.

    Really good monitors, solid and well built they have some bulk to them too so that makes them better than just a normal type of tft with a hard glass front.

    Re: Can anyone recommend suppliers and £ of Hard Glass TFT M

    TFT monitor + kids fingers = expensive paperweight, especialy when they realise they can make pretty patterns by pressing the screen :x
    We've only had one damaged so far, but it's one more than I wanted.

    Exactly I'm sorry but I wouldn't trust our kids with a normal soft fronted tft. RM have even produced a laptop with a hard glass tft on it which I think is an excellent idea.

    We have the glass fronted ones in an adult learning room, covered in finger marks I have also visited another school where they had standard TFT's (without glass) they had none broken and thought these were better than glass front. Personally I think the non-glass are better, to break a tft you have to whack it hard and a glass front will only slow down the inevitable.

    Re: Can anyone recommend suppliers and £ of Hard Glass TFT Monit

    But a hard glass tft still has the tft panel behind it so to break it you have to break a sheet of glass and then the tft panel as well.

    Plus you can clean them with normal glass/monitor cleaner.

    Re: Can anyone recommend suppliers and £ of Hard Glass TFT Monit

    I use AG Neovo E-17 monitors and they are great... excellent picture quality IMHO and you get the benefit of them not being prone to 'punctures'. Before I started my job, my predecessor had to replace a secretary's TFT after she 'popped' it!!!

    Considering the number of blunt objects in her office and the number of pointy objects in a kid's pencil case it is a no brainer. They are only £160 which isn't a massive expense more.

    BTW - The Xerox monitors look a lot nicer but I believe that the mounts are a little flimsy... unlike the Neovo cast iron-looking affair!
