I need to get a LCD monitor for my dad today. It seems that my brother has managed to kill his old one.

I don't know much about them, so I'll receommend whatever you guys suggest.

He'll be looking for a 17" (currently has 15") with DVI. I also think he'll want to spend < £200.

Any suggestions?

I'll probably bu from http://www.komplett.co.uk/

PS You can get a 19" Neovo for ~£185 that has DVI and ~16ms. I've bought about 20 and they seem fine for office work. Haven't tried moving fast images but should be good.

Got an AG Neovo 19" with DVI here too. It's pretty good but not quite the same standard as my Dell 20". It seems to be the cheapest known-brand DVI monitor about.
Mine was from EBuyer, but they're out of stock.

I sell a lot of LG 17" LCD screens. I like them. Not sure how price competitive they are or how easy they are to get in the UK.

Schmosef, I just got a couple of LG L1713P's, can't say I'm impressed with the clarity or variations in brightness! Haven't tried on DVI yet though. Both appear identical on analogue.

hmm. Try LG L1780U. Its LG's new high-end screens. A bit on the expensive side but I've heard good things about it. I have a 1720B (the pervious generation high-end of LG) and the 1780u is supposed to be better in almost every aspect. And its not too expensive either... there is a 1780Q with 8ms that is a lot more expensive, but the physical features are the same...

My 1720B's brightness is crazy. I have to actually turn it down the brightness to "night: text" for normal usage... lol...

I have a (relatively old) L1810B, which is great for office work apart from having had it replaced twice due to a gradually failing backlight!

I don't remember which model we're selling and I'm not at the office so I can't look it up right now.

We always use dvi by the way. I'm fully aware than not all LCD screens handle analog very well.

Thanks
