    Has anyone got one of these and can give their thoughts. The reviews I've found on the web seem very good.

    Cheers

    Seem to be all gone now :)

    Was a good deal at that price. They may get more in stock.

    Hi Howser,

    Thanks for posting this mate,

    I managed to get one of these before they sold out (they went quick didn't they!!) which should be here in a day or two, the two good reviews I found on the net pushed me into getting it and I'll admit I don't know (just by looking at it) what makes a good monitor as I'm still suffering with a 15" CRT but I'll post back with a quick report (incase they get more stock) when it arrives and is set up.

    Thanks again...

    Regards,
    Iain.

    Hi Iain,I've got two of them sat infront of me right now.Very nice and crisp image.As with all TFT's,make sure you have it set to it's native resolution for best results,which is 1280x1024.And use the DVI cable supplied if your graphics card has DVI output for an even better image.

    Well done on getting one,im sure you wont be dissapointed :)

    Oh well, not good news for anyone who missed the offer...

    Thanks Howser for reporting back on the quality (looks like I don't need to now), mine dosn't look to be arriving today, most likely tomorrow, but I'm really looking forward to getting it... I could certainly do with a bit of quality in the monitor department which it now looks like I'm going to get, thanks again for posting this mate.

    Also, thanks to THFC and the rest at Novatech for the offer :smashin:

    Regards,
    Iain.

    Had one of these, could not get on with it.

    Text was very faint at native resolution and cleartype just seemed to make it blurred ( note that this monitor uses the rare BGR color striping order configuration not RGB)

    I also did not like the anti-glare and special hard coating the LCD has,noticible when reading small text on a white background

    Good points though were superb colour definitions and no dead pixels
