    I seem to find loads of nice monitors with around 1620x1050 and less than 5ms response time but are there any 1080p's out there other than the overpriced Apple's at 2000x1200ish and cost about £700 for a 22"...

    I look forward to your findings:)

    Thanks for that. Shame about the response time though, although it's still pretty good isnt it:)

    I'm hoping to find a black monitor but the cosmetics are the last thing on my mind. I love the Illayama's casing in black as they are only fractionally bigger than the screen size.

    Anyone else out there got any suggestions?

    Isn't Microsoft releasing a 22" monitor to coincide with the Vista launch? I think it's a Samsung screen but branded MS.

    Looks like I'm asking for something that's not made yet unless most people on here have been enjoying their New Years celebrations and have got a life unlike me;)

    I have the 24" Benq it's a fantastic monitor I dont think you will find a 22"-23" with 1080p res. you need to step upto 24".

    Anyway the Benq has component and hdmi in and the new batc that will be out in feb will have 1:1 pixel mapping fixed in the firmware.

    I have had 2 of these and neither one has had any dead pixels or banding issues like the dell and samsung equivalents.

    I have my PS3 and 360 hooked up and they look fantastic (although the 360 output is only recognised @ 1680x1200 which microsoft are working on a fix for)

    Why the need for less than 5ms response times?

    AFAIK the panels with the ultra low response times are the the 6-bit ones which rely on dithering to produce the full colour range as opposed to the 8-bit panels.

    As some people have already stated I don't think there are any 1200x1920 panels less than 24", but of these the Dell and Samsung models (not sure about the benq or apple) use a slower panel rated around 16ms.

    :)

    so an 8bit panel with a higher response time is preferable? How do I find out that a panel is an 8bit panel? Never noticed that spec before? Cheers

    Not entirely sure how to tell :D

    Some manufactures list the panel colour depth in there specifications. Some reviews also make note of the panel specifications also. From what I read, atleast up until a few months ago the ultra low latency panels are the 6-bit ones. I only started to take note when my CRT monitor started playing up. Tomshardware and Trustedreviews do some quality monitor reviews.

    I was going to buy a 20" or 22" widescreen and had decided on a viewsonic or Dell 2007WFP, howewver when I noticed the Dell 2407WFP with 25% off I decided to buy that :)

    I did have a cheap Dell 17" LCD (which i assume had a 6bit panel) at work and the colours did seem very off and you could see dither paterens in colour gradients, which totally put me off LCD's. I now have a Dell 1905FP which is from the higher range and it's fantastic :) It was only after using this that I decided to consider purchasing and LCD for my home.

    Just to add; the two Viewsonic monitors I was considering were:
    VX2025wm - 20" widescreen 1050x1680
    VX2235wm - 22" widescreen 1050x1680

    The prices are very similar even though they are from the same range (X range) and one is 2" larger.

    Looking at the specs:

    VX2025
    8-bit panel
    respnose off-on-off: 16ms
    response grey to grey: 8ms

    VX2235
    6-bit + 2-bit panel
    response off-on-off: 5ms

    im also on the look out for a 1080p or better computer monitor...

    it is a serious jump in cash from the 20-22 inch range of 1680x1050 panels to 1920x1200 panels...

    so much so that im almost tempted to go the 30" dell route. It was £700 the other day at www.aria.co.uk for a refurb.
