    Hey,

    Far stretch but does anyone know where I can pick up a high res TV/PC monitor for around £100? Obviously it'll be second hand, but I don't care. I've heard of a few forums where tech heads get rid of there older hardware (or what they consider old, lol) for cheap so they could pick up new bits.

    Any ideas where I should start looking?

    You can pick up a new full HD panel for around £100-120 in most of the online stores now, worth looking into if you have free shipping in any stores or it's ebuyer, play, etc.

    Hey, thanks! I just checked ebuyer, and found this:

    It's good, but around £30 out of budget. Thats why I was hunting for some second hand on a few enthusiast forums.

    Could you suggest a decent one, new or used 24" within the £100?

    I don't know of any going at that price. Only a few Dell IPS monitors going for double your budget...

    Its new. But probably no good to you.

    Just a heads up.
    look on freecycle, or local 'for sale in ....' groups around where you live on facebook.
    I live in north wales and there are 5 within 20 miles of eachother, so living somewhere civilised will surley have some!

    freecycle? Heh... Thanks, but erm... Unless you want me to pick up an old 14" CRT monitor, then that'd be the last place I'd suggest someone to look

    I'll check out the aira link though, looks promising.
