Right. Here goes with another non techy technical review.

My hubby hasnt got the most perfect of eyesight so he wanted a really good monitor, and it had to be a big one.

We happened to be in a local PC repair place and he noticed a CRT 19inch on the side that they used to test other PC's on. He like the picture so investigated further and found it was a Iiyama.

I had a Iiyama 17" normal monitor and was always very happy with it, so was already impressed with the name. So we scoured the internet to look for the best deal.

Bearing in mind the 19 inch size hadnt been widely available for long so we were looking at the 400 quid mark at the time and that was very comparable to some of the cheaper makes , so we had a bit of a bargain and we were happy.
You can now get one for around £250.00 to £300.00.

So heres some non techy details.

Even though it says 19inch you actually get a viewable area of 18 inches, surrounded by the run of the mill slighty off white plastic surround (which I can never get clean!)

Underneath is a good solid base where the speakers are, and the buttons for sorting out the size and position of screen and various other monitor operations (most of which I have never used) This menu system is one of the easiest I have come across which is just fine by me...saves a lot of confusion and you know how I HATE to be confused.

On the right hand side of the stand towards the back are 4 USB ports so a handy spot to plug in your mouse, printer and other gizmo's and doohickies, (but they are not USB2) And the ON/OFF switch is on the same side towards the front.

Now we get into more techy stuff. Dont panic. Its the techy bit you really aught to know when buying a monitor.

Maximum resolution is 2048 x 1536 @ 80Hz and 1600 x 1200 @ 100Hz (dont ask me what the Hz business is but I know I set mine to 1280 x 1024 and that suits me fine )
Thats the main techy bit I look for anyway.

For all leaning towards geekdom (I mean that in the nicest way coz I'm jealous that you know about these things and I dont!) You would be better off going to the website and drooling over all those bandwidth and synk numbers and such.. Here it is....

As you may have guessed, the monitor has now passed to me, hubby changed to a laptop.
Its over two years old and still going strong.

thanks for reading
