Hi guys, i've currently got an http://uk.asus.com/Graphics_Cards/AMD_Series/EAH6850_DC... graphics card, and i've currently got it hooked up to an old VGA 1680x1050 iiyama prolite monitor using a DVI to VGA adapter in the DVI-I port, I'm looking to upgrade to a dual monitor setup, preferably both 1080p screens, refresh rate and response time mean very little to me. My budget is £180 for both monitors (poor student is poor) could someone recommend me a couple that would be compatible with my card? Thanks Alot.
I worked with all 3 of them (because they were cheap as dirt) at a former job, and each time a monitor went out I wanted to beat my head against a brick wall. They are cheaply made, picture is not as clear, Acer has customer service that is ungodly crappy, though verizon still takes the cake, Hanns/Viewsonic customer service was OK but there were just crappy built products.
Cant say about Phillips. Truthfully didn't know they made monitors....
BenQ? Have never heard of it, probably a new company/brand and I would definately not trust it. Phillips...maybe?
But I also like to spend a bit more to get something that will be a bit nicer and last a bit longer. Especially with something like a monitor. Monitors will never go out of style until we have holodecks or some such. My 20's are still kickin strong, but I just want something bigger to game on since I am moving away from the PS3. I will be giving them to my girl and letting her use them for her laptop though.
Yeah, They're fairly common brands, maybe more so here in the UK than the US? BenQ have been around for quite a while. And yeah, the monitor I have at the moment an iiyama prolite 20" 1680x1050 running for about 8 years every day, and the image is still as solid as I can remember it, but I think its about time for a change. Have you really experienced much with Monitors that have deteriorated / broken? because i've never had such an issue, lucky I suppose.
The office I work in is full of Acer and ViewSonic monitors. The Acers colors are awful and they are constantly breaking. The ViewSonics are so blurry I don't know how anyone can stand to look at them all day. I would definitely avoid both brands.
