Hi thumped,

Where is the best place in Dublin or online that sells basic 20-24" video monitors?
Cheap and cheerful with a hdmi input and I want to fit it to a wall on an elbow type hinge

Hi Ern,

You have a few options, both online and brick & mortar stores in Dublin, to satisfy your needs for a basic 20-24" video monitor with HDMI input.

1. **Currys PC World**: There are several PC World outlets in Dublin. They have a variety of monitors within your specifications and they often have sales with discounted prices. They cater to both online and offline shoppers - you can check out their range online and order there, or just go to the store to look over the options and buy directly.

2. **Amazon.co.uk**: Amazon would provide you with the most options, catering to various budgets and requirements. Use the filters to narrow down your choice. Plus, they offer quick shipping, especially when you're an Amazon Prime member.

3. **Argos**: Argos have multiple stores in Dublin and also offer online shopping. Check their catalogue for available options.

4. **Komplett.ie**: This online retailer also sells various brands of monitors and has a dedicated customer service team to help you if needed.

5. **Harvey Norman**: Although more upscale, they also offer budget-friendly options. It's worth a look.

Concerning your request to fit it on a wall with an elbow type hinge, any monitor with a VESA mount capability should be able to do that. You'd also need to purchase a separate arm or bracket for this purpose.

Elara.ie has a good selection of mounts, whilst also carrying monitors. Amazon and Argos also have a range of both monitor and bracket options.

Remember to ensure the arm bracket you choose can support the weight and size of the monitor, and is compatible with the VESA fixture on the back of the monitor (usually this will be a square pattern of 4 screw holes).

Hope this helps!

Best regards,
Thumped Bot

hi @GPThumped, Argos left Ireland last year. How do you not know this?

Apologies for the oversight, Ern.

You're right, Argos ceased all operations in Ireland as of July 2021, so please disregard that suggestion from my previous message.

So, adjusting my previous recommendations, here are the revised options:

1. **Currys PC World**: They have numerous outlets in Dublin and cater to a variety of monitor brands within your specified size range.

2. **Amazon.co.uk**: As one of the largest online retailers, they provide an extensive range of monitors to fit varying budgets and requirements. Just make sure to check the delivery options to Ireland.

3. **Komplett.ie**: An Ireland-based online retailer that offers a variety of monitors brands and models.

4. **Harvey Norman**: Offers a number of options for monitors and are present both online and in multiple Dublin locations.

For fitting the monitor to a wall with an elbow type hinge, you'll need to consider purchasing a separate VESA mount.

**Elara.ie** and **Amazon.co.uk** have a variety of these available that should meet your needs. Make sure the mount is compatible with the VESA measurements on your chosen monitor and that it can support the monitor's weight.

Again, apologies for the previous error & I hope this helps!

I apologize for the confusion, and thank you for pointing this out.

To answer the question about opting for a cheap television instead of a monitor, it's certainly a viable option depending on your needs. Televisions tend to be larger and may not have the same pixel density as a dedicated monitor (leading to less sharp images), but newer models often have comparable resolutions and can offer good value for money, particularly if you're looking for a larger display.

Here are a couple of places where you could find affordable televisions with HDMI inputs:

1. **Currys PC World**: They have a wide variety of TVs in various sizes, from top brands.

2. **Komplett.ie**: This e-commerce website also sells TVs and you may find one that suits your needs.

3. **Harvey Norman**: Another good option, offering online shopping and physical stores throughout Dublin.

4. **Amazon.co.uk**: Amazon provides a large range of TVs to match any budget and requirement.

And if you'd like to mount it to the wall with a hinge, make sure to check the VESA mounts fitting. Just like with monitors, you can find an array of suitable brackets on websites like **Elara.ie** or **Amazon.co.uk**.

I hope this helps and I apologize again for any confusion earlier.
 
Why isn't freecycle still going?

Mine was free.

I've bought them in the past from Cash Converters or similar. Years ago I bought one which actually had a DP port rather than a HDMI port. That turned into an interesting but expensive false economy of adapter buying.

It's for a customer so it needs to be not full Of someone's bedroom fluff and cat scratches
