    New HD Monitor

    Just bought myself one of THESE

    Fantastic picture quality and games look amazing, the stand however is appalling, I'm now looking at a VESA mounting system for it.

    My old monitor was an LG W1942T , 19" 1440x900, a superb little monitor but the inverter went. I was going to stick with LG but the Iiyama came up at a good price. The response time is only 5ms but to be honest the difference between that and 2ms is negligible. All in all, you cant complain at a 24" 1920x1080 monitor for £133 - apart from the stand that is Smile

    Oh, and it's HUGE Smile

    since that time eons ago when the wife broke my first monitor by accidently knocking it off, i had been using my brothers old monitor which served me well until recently when it too achieved goosed status. i'm currently using my wee alba hd telly for both my 360 and pc. it's a tidy setup however i really must get something with a larger screen tho as i'm struggling to read anything on it . need to wait just now tho as the kids are off on hols trying to use all my money up as fast as possible.

    I have an LG Flatron e2351vr-bn.

    http://www.digitalversus.com/lcd-monitor/lg-flatron-e2351-p11664/test.html

    It's pretty good, not as nice as the monitor I bought for my Nephew last year, can't remember what that was but it was soooo shiny and the picture was sweet! The only thing that sucks about my monitor (Other than me getting glue on the screen) is the stand, it's total crap really, the whole thing wobbles if you touch it, it can't be posed and it points slightly downwards! Should be fixing the stand problem soon though ordered one of these the other day:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/MDM04-Single-Monitor-Stand-Swivel/dp/B0036YMAXM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1374177482&sr=8-1&keywords=monitor+arm

    A pretty ugly thing but at least it should be flexible.

    Got a new computer desk coming (Maybe tomorrow) as well, getting rid of the super heavy pine one I'm currently using.

    Yeah, it would match my set up better too, still too late now. I did actually look at that one, no idea why I picked the one I did.

    Oops forgot I accidentally deleted my last message, my desk and monitor arm turned up today, I've spent all morning putting it all together. The arm actually needs some hammer adjustments it leans slightly to the left and the nut is too tight to turn, some of the other nuts in the arm are also too tight so I'm going to loosen them with hammers too.

    This is the desk I got:

    My PC tower doesn't fit under it, but that's fine I don't really want it near me if I can help it.
