Never heard of digimate, but the specs seem fine.

I nearly went for one of these as the customer reviews on Aria's website were very good but I saw the 17" version in a local shop and it looked very 'plasticy' and cheap. Finally decided on a 17" Iiyama (435S) with a 10ms refresh, cost £184 from www.pcnextday.co.uk and I am well pleased.

Llyama is quality, but at a price. You can get a good 19" for the price of a Llyama 17"...

i was thinking of the ilyama, but aria customers have been saying the picture quality using the dvi connection is brilliant on these.

not to worried about it looking platicy they all look plasricy to me unless there made out of metal.

Having a look is always preferable to shopping by spec but having said that, I'll give you my opinion:

<font color=blue>From Specs:</font color=blue>
Dot Pitch - average
Brightness - average
Contrast - Good
Pixel Respones - Normal use - Very Good, Gaming - Adequate for most games
Viewing angle - good
Resolution - normal for 19"
DVI connection - good to have

<font color=blue>From Picture:</font color=blue>
Bezel - on the thick side - concern in side by side configurations
Controls - seem easily accessable
Speakers - available (Quality unknown)

<font color=blue>Unknowns:</font color=blue>
Menu/Controls - ?
Height adjust - ?
Pivot - ?
Swivel - ?
Integrated Power supply - ?
USB - ?

193 quid is about $400.00. Since it seems you are in the UK then I don't know what other monitors would be available to you. There are several others listed in this forum with equal or better specs for less money but if they have to be shipped overseas then that negates any good deal.

this is one of the cheapest brand new 19inch moniters avalable in the uk. unless i go for a second hand dell which i will not be doing.

so you can say this is the cheapest in the uk.

not having a dvi connecter does this degrade the quality of the image or does it not matter, as the digimite has a dvi but this 8ms tft only has analoge?

I have not been able to tell teh difference, but would go DVI to DVI if had a choice.
