    I am about to purchase a TFT monitor to replace a very good 19" CRT which I've just sold on this forum due to space issues in my new apartment, but I'm having difficulty finding out which is the best option?

    Could anyone out there give me some help with this decision??

    I'd sort of narrowed it down to the either the:
    Hitachi - 174SXWB @£376 17" sub 25ms response
    Iiyama - 4314 @£381 17" sub 25ms response

    But if anyone has any opinions about these or any other similar alternatives I'd love to hear them.

    My only requirements are that the screen be 17" and have a low response time ie sub 25ms as I mainly use my computer for gaming and a bit of work (word, powerpoint etc..)

    Your help will be greatly appreciated, as I need to get one ordered today or tomorrow!!

    Check out www.tomshardware.com, they have just posted a new review of a Samsung, which uses the same screen as the Hitachi but cheaper.

    I favoured the Hitachi over the Illyama in terms of specs, but I would really recommend a personal viewing. I too have TFT on my want to buy list :)

    I've got the AOC LM720A (25ms)

    AOC Datasheet

    Can't tell you how it compares to the 2 you've shortlisted but like you I bought it to replace a 19"crt and mainly use it for games - I didn't test any others just thought "that'll do" and fortunately, I am very happy with it - it looks great too.

    I bought it from here MicroDirect for £320 with a 3 year onsite warranty.

    Cheers

    i have that hitachi and it's quality!!

    using it with the dvi output on my graphics card

    response time is ~15ms if i'm not mistaken (it's always possible of course ;) )

    OSD isn't brilliant...but the actual display is :smashin:

    i haven't played many games (yet) but what I have played i've had no problems with response...
