    Nice one guys, didn't realise you could get em so cheap, I've got a square one I've had for 5 years but the switch is dead on it, pity really.

    What do you call cheap? You can get a top-notch 24" dell for £400. Too much?

    Switches going in monitors are common mate, if you are slightly techy you can open it up and resolder it to the board as usually the contacts burn out due to voltage spikes.

    If you are set on a new monitor there were some very cheap, very good LG 22" ones here for about £180: www.scan.co.uk
