    Something is weird about the resolution...1900 x 1200 is the same as my 20" IBMs.

    The contrast ratio is terrible and the response time isn't particularly great either. Your a gamer Detale, and you like to push the frame rate on your hardware, this will be a huge disappointment.

    I suspect the actual pixel count is 1920 x 1200, giving the standard 16:10 ratio for computer monitors.
    In fact I've only seen 1920 x 1080 and 1920 x 1200 for 24" monitors, I can't believe someone has built a production line which makes this strange size.

    One point to note - "THIS ITEM IS CURRENTLY UNAVAILABLE".
    My local supplier hasn't got any either, and I bet they can beat that price.

    Are you sure? I used to have a CRT monitor but the res was 1600x1200 =/

    1900x1200 seems to be normal for a wide monitor I guess.

    The contrast and delay are pretty miserable, but it could serve as a secondary display if you're low on cash. I wouldn't buy anything cheap as my primary gear though.

    What would be a good choice of 24 monitor for around about £200?
