liyama visionmaster 1451,excellent monitor
Well where to begin, I originally started out with a 17inch
TFT monitor as they are very space saving, but i found
after a time that the response time for most TFT monitors
is very poor for gaming,also I found myself getting very
regular eye strain,which in all fairness was the last thing
I expected to get with a TFT.
The problem was that my TFT had a refresh rate of only 75hz, (this is not good for your eyesif your playing games
and surfing the net for a protracted amount of time).
So I saved up and ordered myself the Iiyama Vision Master 1451 it cost me at the time £132 inc P+P.
Now when it arrived naturally I was taken back at the
size of it with its elongated rear ,after being so use to TFT
Anyway after much lumbering about with it to my room
I finally connected it up put it on 1024x768 and a refesh rate of 100hz. What can I say? Never have i before had such a smooth gaming experience with rich vibrant colours and great response times with no blurring when I needed to turn fast in online games
like quake 3 and unreal 2004.
After 4 months heavy useage I realised,my eyes no longer itched or felt sore or got as tired as they had
done with my original TFT monitor .
Let me just emphasise how bad my TFT made my eyes,now maybe I dont have the strongest eyes going
I dont know but my eyes got so badly strained with my
TFT that I had swelling on outer skin of my eyes,
terrible headaches and stinging runny eyes.
I now no longer have this using this crt monitor and yet
I still use my computer as intensely,I think this says

I personally can not recommend this monitor enough
wether you are a hardcore game or a net surfer, for
