Hi Everyone

Please be gentle as it's my first deal ;)

I've been looking for cheap, good quality 24 inch LCD monitor and found this one on eBuyer. Please note this is V2420H model, which has HDMI input compared to V2420.

I found the price on eBuyer to be excellent. Couldn't find anywhere cheaper and I found most shops sell V2420, without the HDMI port, at similar price.

I've received this monitor today and for me it's great. Mind I do understand there are better options, especially non TN based. But we're talking 24inch for 168 quid here so IPS and other are out of this price range.

Some spec from the website:
Screen Size 24" Wide LED-backlight
Resolution (max.) 1920 x 1080
Pixel Pitch 0.276 mm
Brightness 250 cd/m2
Contrast Ratio 1000:1
Dynamic Contrast Ratio: 10,000,000:1
Response Time (tr/tf) 5 ms
Display Area 531.36 x 298.89 mm
Display Color 16.7 million
Viewing Angle (L/R;U/D) (CR>=10) 170 / 160
Terminals D-sub / DVI-D / HDMI1.3 / Headphone Jack
Horizontal Frequency (Max) KHz 30 ~ 83
Vertical Frequency (Max)Hz 50 ~ 76
Video Bandwidth (MHz) 205
Colour Temperature Reddish / Normal / Bluish / Usermode
Power Consumption 30W (max) / 17W (Eco mode)
Auto Switching Power Supply Adapter
Adjustments Tilt (down / up) -5 / 15
Dimensions (HxWxD) 429.4 x 580.36 x 188.5 mm
Weight 3.85 kg
Accessories (Standard) VGA cable / Power cable
Product Colour Glossy Black

For the price I couldn't find anything better and I'm really pleased with it. Game and movie preset look horrible for me but standard/sRGB and ECO seem to be perfect combination for all types of work/play I'm doing (just dropped brightness a bit so it doesn't hurt my eyes).

Not many left in stock (19 atm) so order quick if you're decided to buy one.

I've saved so much money thanks to hotdeals I thought I will share my findings with you guys.

Good spot. The non -HDMI is around this price so good first post.
Nice find. £163.01 at
cold voters are out in force today - heat added
Have had one of these excellent monitors for some time now. Get a get picture and never had any problems with it. Great find at this price. Heat added.
what panel does it use, anyone knows?
TN, I believe
Are these worth the upgrade from a 24" non-LED panel?
Honestly I wouldn't upgrade if your current LCD is no more than 2-3 years old. Otherwise it's not worth it imo.
I have the LCD version - Nothing bad to say about it.
nice find, heat added
How is this for playing video games? Is there any blurring?
Does anyone know of any good tv/monitor dual purpose which has an inbuilt Freeview tuner and a ability to record which is a min or 23inches at a reasonable price. I cant find any which are a good standard tv (as in same picture quality as a standard lcd tv).
Looks good; is it wall-mountable, though?

Cheaper here. I got two of these from Aria for around £130 each not too long ago
This is a different screen and doesn't have HDMI. And that one is also cheaper at Oyyy... £149.99 delivered. The Aria one comes to ~£162 with shipping. one at eBuyer looks a lot nicer aesthetically, and seems to be a better build. However HDMI seems a fairly pointless addition what with the lack of speakers... good for people planning on connecting 2/3 devices thoughCheaper at Crescent Electronics, by the way. £159.18 delivered...

The Cresentelectronics one appears not to have HDMI in the description. I called the hotline to clarify but no answer...

I was looking on the Benq website about this as I want an LED screen to mount to my VR3. Looking at the pics in the gallery I don't think it is wall mountable though (The tech specs don't mention anything about it)

Well it would appear they messed up my order in that case.... Both of mine have HDMI..... I have looked through my order history and can confirm that is a link to what i ordered at £130.... Just got lucky i guess
Anyone considering this monitor should seriously look at this before making a decision:

24" LED backlit, full HD, VA screen (i.e. much better image than TN), HDMI, DVI, VGA inputs, only £160.34 pre-order (1-2 weeks claimed) from at least one retailer.

The BL2400PT should also be out soon, looking around the £180 mark, with the same panel but much better stand (height adjustable, portrait mode, VESA, etc), built-in speakers but DisplayPort instead of HDMI.
I dont have this model but i have a benq 24". Didnt know a lot about them when i bought it but for the money it a great monitor.
Review. This guy likes to check monitor stability :)
I think i'll hold off buying any new monitors until the price of DisplayPort comes down.
Displayport is not really an issue with HDMI monitors. Simple Displayport-> HDMI cable will do the job.
Just make sure your device has Dual-mode DisplayPort.
Dual-mode DisplayPort is marked with ++ symbol next to DisplayPort suymbol, like the one below:

Not in every case.

The standard Radeon HD 5870 for example has 2xDVI, 1xHDMI & 1xDisplayPort. It can drive upto 3 monitors.
However the card has only 2 signal generators with which to generate a DVI/HDMI digital signal.

To drive a 3rd monitor you need either:

- A native DisplayPort monitor (as this avoids the need for the 3rd signal generator)
- An active DisplayPort->HDMI/DVI adapter (typically USB powered & VERY expensive! ~£50-£100)
- A DisplayPort->VGA adapter (very odd that the cheapest way of getting 3 monitor support on a top-of-the-range graphics card is to relegate yourself to a now obsolete analogue video connection!)
Guys will the VW2420H be better than this given that its going to be the same price?
