HannsG HG281D 28-inch LCD Monitor, £238.18

From US review site Extremetech, The HG281D features a native resolution of 1920x1200, and at 28" in size, it seems like quite a steal for under £240 at Lambda-tek

Sure, it's basic - there's only a VGA and HDMI connector, with not even a USB port in sight.

But if all you want is a basic, large PC monitor, you don't want to spend hundreds of dollars more, right?

Well, that all depends on the image quality you expect. The HG281D isn't bad for the price, but it certainly falls short in some key image quality criteria.
