3 monitors for £300. Opinons?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
These are the ones...



I'm wanting three new monitors for my new gaming rig as stated in my sig.
Didnt want to spend too much although could go more than the cost of these but I thought that they looked good for the cost.

3 21.5" 1920x1080 res LCD for £300 brand new delivered.

One thing I would have liked is wall mounting options which by the look of these they dont have but I can live without it.

Possibly a higher resoultion screen would have been good also but for the price these look to me to be good value for money.

Any thoughts?

I think that is a good price on 3 monitors. Your dual 6970s should have no problem. I say buy them and enjoy.
Worse than crack.

It's entirely your decision of course, but i certainly wouldn't go cheap on screens as theses are what you spend most of your time looking at when it comes to a computer. I'd prefer a single high quality display before cheap multi screen options, then you could add an extra one now and then as you can afford it.

Yeah I thought they were a good price for 3.. Just had a niggle in the back of my head that maybe I'm missing something. A second or third opinion is never a bad thing

Yeah I know what youre saying but I'm using a 21" 5 year old DELL and a 19" years old BenQ at the momment so it's still an upgrade.

What would you say I would be missing on the quality on these from a more expensive monitor that would be noticeable?

Colour accuracy, backlight bleed (but this is seen on expensive displays too, but likely to be far more notiecable on cheaper panels), high chance of stuck/dead pixals, brightness adjustments. Cheap panels are exactly what they are, if you bought them initially you'd be happy but then you'd start wishing you spent a bit more on them.

Please have a browse through these displays, before making decisions. There's a BenQ in there i think would be much better quality and it's slightly larger.
