No VESA mount :frowning:


#5

Since there’s no DVI-D jack, will I lose anything with a DVI-to-HDMI cable?


#6

A little bit of Google-fu says that video signal is the same but you won’t get the audio that is sent on an HDMI port. Since these have no speakers, that shouldn’t be a problem.

But please do Google-fu yourself before making a decision.

“Full HD” is just marketing speak for “downgraded monitor”. Years ago, it was normal for a nice monitor to have 1200 vertical lines (or more). Now they’re hard to find as monitor makers are trying to downgrade the resolution and then sugar-coat it by touting it as “full HD!” because people associate “1080P” as “top of the line” due to TVs. Which is BS because a 1200 line monitor looks SO much nicer.

These days, if you get a 1080P computer monitor you’re getting a LOW END monitor. Do yourself a favor and don’t buy into this marketing gimmick.


#8

Full HD is a standard definition for 1920 x 1080 resolution. What you are describing (1200 lines) is not Full HD.

More info on the standard resolutions for computer monitors

Not really. You were never going to find a 1600x1200 monitor in this price range. Anything in a 4:3 aspect ratio would likely be 1280x1024, and anything in a 16:10 would likely be 1680x1050. Are there 1600x1200 monitors available? Sure, but they cost considerably more – you could probably score a 2560x1440 monitor in the same price range.

And don’t discount the usefulness of that extra horizontal space either. It makes it much easier to multitask.

Is it a low end monitor? Of course. It’s $100. What were you expecting?


#10

I think that was a copy-paste error.

1080p or “Full HD” = 1920x1080

720p or “HD” = 1280x720 for television

There are two common LCD sizes for computer monitors that are close to the HD standard and labeled as ~“HD” for that purpose in the Wikipedia link: 1366×768 and 1360x768.
