Not sure if you'll notice a huge difference with a 20" against your 17" though, cos i think the actual screen size is only a little taller but much wider, and the res of most of these screens is 1650x1080 compared to your 17" res of 1280x1024 so you can see it'll not be a huge jump for some games that don't support widescreen. The most difference you'll notice is widescreen movies though which'll be around 2x larger!

Your best bet is to go for a 22" imo for the most difference.

i'd prolly go for the 2007 then mrapoc, almost all of the 22" models all use crappy TN panels

I voted for 2007wfp as if you'r going to spend £280 u might aswell get a 20" S-IPS panel rather than get a 22" TN panel. Also the 2007wfp has loads of ports for connectivity

If you go for a Belnea 20", go for the "10 20 35 W" as it has DVI and is a MVA panel

If you want the size but don't mind TN panels, the belnea 22" looks ok (altho it has no DVI, v7 22" does).

I deffinately wouldn't look at the Dell 22" as it's overpriced for TN.

i agree with TN for the viewing angles @ around 10-15ft, i believe mine is a TN 22"Westinghouse, and i dont sit 10-20 ft away playing games.. at a 35 or 45 degree angle. TN monitors are fine, if u want "the movie" experience with ur family or friends TN is not the way to go, but for gaming and viewing a movie for ur ownself is fine.

I'm literally sat less than a metre away from my screen



just behind my saitek there ^^

my cautiousness is due to the fact im spending a lot of money here, expecting a high quality for my money (minus the tack i wont use much) and trying to get the biggest screen for my money without sacrificing precious precious image quality. My 17" tn screen is just fine (viewing angle etc.) but it lacks vibrance and size. I wont be lying on the floor watching my screen, im pretty much in line with it. So what you think now, and thanks guys

If you're sat in front of it and don't really care that much about colours (photoshop work etc) then the 22" TN panels would probably do as they are the same price as the 20" TN's you gain some extra size for the same price at least. Not sure if you're bothered about futureproofing by buying a DVI one or not tho

The video7 22" is quite good for the price as it has both DVI+VGA. Not sure if the Mirai one does or not as I've never heard of the company, but I know the Belnea one is VGA only.

i'd still have to say the 2007wfp if you want a great image together with hdcp over dvi

or the belinea 102035w for again, really good image quality with bright colours and good contrast but minus hdcp

I will need it to last as long as possible (im one of them folk). Will i see a difference while gaming if i did go for a tn panel? Me no like my current one while playing games such as fear, the contrast is so crap ive gotta have it high brightness to see anything...which defeats the point of having a dark scene.

So yea basically im a gaming mofo, might start using photoshop etc. once im at college
