I'm after a new monitor but on a tight budget of no more than £200.

Primarily used for Windows/Internet stuff but also needs to be reasonable for gaming as have ergular LAN sessions:thumbsup: Not too fussed about Video performance but always nice I suppose.

Have had a look around and like the look of this Samsung on EBuyer, has a nice high resolution of 2048x1152 with good reviews but open to all suggestions!

Samsung SM2343NW 23" TFT Monitor 2048x1152 300cd/m2 20000:1 5ms VGA Black 3 Years Warranty - Ebuyer

Thanks for any advice:)

IIRC Richer Sounds are doing a 22" 1080p Samsung Monitor/TV including freeview for about 190 ...

If you step down to a 22" monitor, you can get a great deal more for your money. A good example of this is as gagaga mentions.

Dell also do a nice 22" widescreen that is fairly minimal in design, but does a good job.

I personally have two ViewSonic VX2260WM monitors that I find great to use.

23" = 16:9 format

24" = 16:10

Similar with:

21" = 16:9

22" = 16:10

Playing video on a 16:10 display you will have a black line top and btm

For gaming and general use I'd recommend 16:10 either 24" or 22" (without speakers) !

That's not true.

The standard 16:10 and TV shaped 16:9 monitors are both availible in all sizesfrom 21" to 24", although some are rarer at certain sizes than others.

Playing video intended for TV on a 16:10 display will have a black line top and bottom, but playing video recorded from the computer (e.g. games) will display perfectly on a 16:10 display and have black bars to the side on a 16:9 display. Movies will often have black bars top and bottom on both as they can use even wider formats.
