    Wondering if this is a good monitor for gaming ? I really want a large pc monitor around 26-28 inches for my bedroom that supports windows based gaming at good quality, aswell as as any future hd based entertainment.

    Anyone bought this lcd or seen any decent pc gaming reviews on the web? Seems to be a great price for it on OCUK, done a little searching and ocuk seem to be the lowest.....

    I considered it but it lacks DVI which is a must for me, also the specs only list the "dynamic contrast" which is missleading imo... But I think its 1000:1 also so up to you.. if you wanted to connect it to a PC you would have to use VGA.

    Delivery will now be tomorrow for me Q261... ScaM.co.uk are useless ! :p

    Tek, do a search. There was a large thread on the samsung 26" displays being used as computer monitors.

    I'd highly recommend not to use a TV-based screen for gaming, if you don't mind the general quality of the screen.

    Got the Hyundai today, picture quality is very good.. the built in freeview is pretty awful tho.. It just can't get a good signal..

    Tried DVI with windows works at 1360*768.. Tried a few games, all looked great, a little blurry for my taste but a very good picture all the same... No major ghosting, what you would expect for a quality 8ms panel.. So far I'm very happy with it. . :p

    You'll need to remove that link quickly (OcUK rules)...but that said I ordered that very screen from that very place about 4 hours back... ;)

    I just hope nothing goes wrong the place in question has about the worst approach to customer service I have ever met. I ordered from them once and NEVER again !

    I forgot which forum I was on... Oh well. !! :) Their customer service is quite bad but they got some amazing deals.

    Kinda annoyed that the day I receive my 26" theres a bigger better version available for less but thats just how it works sometimes I guess.. :(

    I haven't come across an internet company yet that has been great with returns. I've RMA'd to them in the past and it generally goes wrong a few times, then you get crazy compensation. My 9700Pro got a full refund several years after I bought it, as did my 3rd return of a V9999GE (essentially a 6800GT) and my Logitech MOMO. My dad has had his widescreen TV from there replaced and fixed a few times. Swings and roundabouts, make a saving...gain some frustration.

    They look very simalar and both look awful, they look like there designed for displays in shops and not something I want in my living room.. They look cheap and tacky to me...

    Did you even look for the LCD I suggested? its 32" and only £599 with very nice specs.
