My 2 and-a-bit year old 17" Sharp died recently, and so I need to replace it when I get paid at the end of the month. Been using a 7 year old 17" CRT from HP, and I'm sick of the damn thing. I wanted a shiny 20" ASUS one with a load of inputs for PC and other video sources; but I need to re-do my wireless network, so...can't afford both on my minimum wage (-rent) paycheck.

But I found a (standard 4:3) 19" monitor from a brand called HannsG for a mere £120. Sooo, does anyone have any experience with these? I looked them up and the reviews I found basically said the casing and stand are cheap, plasticky and fugly and the speakers are cheap and tinny - but the screen itself is of a decent standard (especially given the price).

I used to have a HannsG 19". They're not necessarily the best looking thing out there, but it does work.

ATM, I'm using a Medion 19" CRT which I bought around a year ago, If you'd like to try that. It only cost around 75 of my grubby little quid.

Can you remember where you got it from? 75 quid is a good price. :p

Get a 17 inch monitor. The 4:3 19 inchers can't display any higher resolutions than a 17 inch monitor, and therefore you can't phyiscally see anything more on a 19 inch than you would see with a 17 inch.

Aye I know that mate, but I watch a lot of movies and stuff (and I don't sit with my nose against the screen normally) so the extra screen size is more important so me. But someone elsewhere pointed out that they do a widescreen one, which is a bit more expensive obviously, but still cheap as chips and so within my budget. So I'll most likely be getting that one anyway. :)

Sorry Chris, ignore me, I just re-read your post and you're talking about a CRT which I don't want. :p

I think there was a flat-screen monitor for around the same.

Look at http://www.medion.co.uk/

Yeah, £70 but it's a 15 incher and I watch a lot of movies and the like, so 15" isn't a good thing.
