That is the same monitor isn't it.. Just re-branded?

I went to see the Samsung in PC World today just to take a look and it is very nice... But I would like a 24. Very tempted to buy one of these but want the right panel. Do we think Misco will provide it? Any experience of them?

BUT read the thread in the forums 1st. I got sent 2 wrong panels before I got the right monitor, but to be fair OcUK paid for all the postage.
How is the one from OcUK??

Good, great viewing angles and ur guaranteed VA panel. The panel I got was the same panel used in the BenQ FP241W and LG L245WP which are both over £400. The only compaint is that I have a few dead pixels, but could'nt be bothered sending it back for the 4th time.

The Misco one is not the same monitor as it supports HDCP 1080i iirc, but u will have to read equk's review on it and compare it to the DGM.

Ahh yeah I've just pretty much found all that out on another review of the one you have. He was saying that is there a better one and that he then tracked down the Yuraku which is the original and a few brands are making clones of it. All the same screen though which is in those other Acer and BenQ models which as a few people have said are in the £350 - £500 mark.

I think I'll probably end up going for the Yuraku and if I decide to buy from Aria, the question is do I pay £30 for a dead pixel check.. With the monitor costing so little, I don't think I'd mind.

ta for your info though.

Managed to find 3 decent sellers in Misco, Aria and Advance Tech and also found 1 place that sells it even cheaper than all the others.

Link

I wasn't sure as I can't find any reviews as a seller on them (if anyone else can then that would be appreciated) but I've just looked and they happen to be 7 miles from my house. If anything goes wrong, I can go bang on their door

Supposedly all the Yuraku ones have MVA style panels, not sure if this is true but I haven't seen any reports of anyone having a TN panel in a Yuraku.

It also supports HDCP.

I would go for a shop that you know you can trust in case of the possibility of RMA etc. Also some places have the option for no-dead pixels which means if you don't pay the extra, you'll probably get one with dead pixels (I think Aria are an example of this).

Yeah Aria seem to be doing that quite a bit.

Haven't seen that option on the other sellers though. I'm going to actually go to this shop on Tuesday to buy it. If it looks like a decent place I'll buy from them. Being so close to me RMA for the first year or so shouldn't be an issue as long as they don't go bust.

While hardly any say about the MVA panels, they all say a viewing angle of 180 x 180 degrees and that isn't going to be there on a TN panel.

Let's play a game called "Guess who sucks?"

Answer: Misco!!!

I ordered my 24" monitor yesterday from them and paid the £9.99 for next day delivery. I was at work when they knocked at my house this afternoon, so my mum signed for it for me. When they got it in the front room, my dad noticed it was a Samsung (which I didn't order) and only a 19" so he called me. My delivery note was slapped on the box with all the right details on it but inside was the delivery note for some dude in Wales and his 19" Samsung.

They bloody put my delivery note on the wrong box... I can just see it now.. Mr. Bloody Spencer thinking Christmas has come early and fingering up my shiny new 24" monitor all night

I called them and they will call me back tomorrow and tell me what's going to be done about it. I made sure my delivery charges will be refunded and now it doesn't look like I'm going to get it until Thursday.

I've never used Misco in my life and I aint sure I'll bother again. While I've probably just been unlucky and 99 / 100 are fine, mine bloody wasn't!! First purchase with the company and it went up so sod em!
