    Student loan on monday..YAY :D

    2 * monitors here I come :thumb:

    But can someone please enlighten me as to the difference between the

    BenQ G2220 HD - £138.20
    BenQ G2220 HDA - £116.25
    BenQ E2220 HD - £125.21

    As you can see the difference multiplied by 2 I could end up saving £44, and I don't see what spending that extra money gets me.

    http://www.benq.com/products/LCD/?product=1458&page=specifications - Identical spec except one has vista basic certification and the other has premium...why pray tell?

    I'll be honest I can see the difference to the E series, it doesn't have "sense eye + photo".

    Can one of the resident monitor buff's clear up the difference between the two G's

    Absolutely none. Vista cert is a rip off.. it does nothing except extract more cash from ignorant PC World customers. Go ahead and save £44 :)

    The HDA doesn't have DVI though.

    Aha!... missed that. I wonder if "vista Certification" just means you have HDMI. Pretty stupid if that's the case, as many screens have HDMI but are not "certified".
