My first post in HUKD....Not the cheapest 24" out there, but posting it for its rave reviews and stylish looks. Also, this is the cheapest being sold on Amazon since its release.

Although I'm a bit anti that brand, that does look good. I always suggest IPS.

I will mention the NRGIT deal though as it's a Dell screen and a great Spec for a very great price. Sure, you have to make it a home page or you won't catch them in stock (ppl say a phonecall often helps) , sure you need a spare Dell stand lying around, sure it's a bit smaller (but still 1920x1080 & smaller is often better) and it only has 3 USB ports, VGA, DVI and displayport and usually arrives next day for £66. I have a 22" and a 24" from this source.

love my BenQs, but mine are 144hz and 1ms response time, that bevel though... :D

Nice prices for the BenQ EW2440L LED VA 24-inch Monitor

8bit, dual hdmi ports and (vga- yuck)..

The buttom bevel is a pooring rendering a believe as the 2740l doesn't have a huge bottom bevel.

No Vesa mount though..

Is there really any difference between a VA panel (like this one) and an IPS panel?

The VA panels are fine IMO - I have both & to be honest, for general use, the VA looks richer to my eyes.
#9
I got one of these last time they were on here, the viewing angles are pretty disappointing, I wouldn't get another one myself but it doesn't bother me enough to get another monitor.

for £25 more you can get a ben q GL2450hm which is considered by many one of the best 60hz 1080p monitors =)
#11
Nice, love BenQ screens, I have 3x Professional BenQ IPS 24", this is VA so should be great for most people and better than cheap economy IPS panels. Heat.

Thanks. What monitors do you have btw? If you don't me asking.
#13
If you prefer, for £20 more you can get this IPS monitor, it's height adjustable too: :)

Had a couple of 24" BenQ monitors and have been really happy with them.

What makes this a deal though? I'm sure I paid about the same for both.

You still suggest IPS for gaming? I believe IPS is nowhere as fast as a good TN...
#17
It`s an ok monitor, but not really a deal. I got it for the same price a while ago.
#18
Had one. Worst quality screen I have ever looked at. I do not understand the numerous good reviews for them!
#20
Bit of a strange request but could someone compare this BenQ to this Fujitsu Siemens I purchased 6 years ago and seems to be showing its age (washed out) but functions well. I'll be ordering a new graphics card soon (maybe GTX 960) and have done a decent upgrade across the board when ivy-bridge was released. Cheers

It says it has a 2mm bezel, but also it has an additional 5mm because the picture doesn't go right to the edge, the picture ends 5mm before the edge of the screen.
#22
doesn't appear to have mounting points so no arm-mount - shame because it would have potentially done well for a 3-screen config.

I have an ASUS VE278 & an older Dell 2407WP at the moment, but use other monitors from time to time. Highly recommend the ASUS.

For cheaper IPS panels, found on cheaper monitors like this one really are no better than VA. On higher end monitors with better IPS panels the difference between IPS and VA will be greater.

Thanks. And would you personally say the Dell U2414H is better than this one?

I'd say it was better if the additional input lag and gtg response time doesn't bother you. a dell monitor will be good quality, and it has a lot more connectivity. USB 3.0 ports 2 hdmi ports etc

generally you see this monitor for around £200 which I'd say was too expensive for a 24" monitor at 1080p ehn you have cheaper alternatives like this. But at that price it seems like a good deal. alternatively at the £150 price bracket there's a good full HD VA panel monitor by Benq with great reviews but with a larger 27" screen. which I'd choose over the dell. http://www.amazon.co.uk/BenQ-GW2760HM-27-inch-Multimedia-Monitor/dp/B00AQBWNXA/ref=sr_1_2?s=computers&ie=UTF8&qid=1420077177&sr=1-2&keywords=benq+27 but it depends what you're looking for really.

You're a great help, thanks.

The issue with the BenQ one you've posted is, it's 27" which is a bit big I think (for me personally). Also, I think the pixel density would be lower, most comments I've read on the internet say that 24" is the most a 1080p monitor should be. :|

Also people keep going on about how good a 1920 x 1200 monitor is. :D

Happy New Year btw. :)

And a happy new year to you too :D

If you're happy with a 24" screen, I'd stick with it :) the additional PPI is nice, and if you're sitting close to your desk then a massive screen can be more of a nuisance, having to move your head around to see everything.

Also a 16:9 1080p screen vs a 1200p 16:10 screen is also another matter of preference.

The 16:10 will give you a slightly better resolution in vertical height allowing for a slightly better FOV in games. But since now most videos on youtube or netflix are in the standard 16:9 ratio will mean the monitor will have to downscale slightly, meaning they would probably look better on a native 16:9 monitor.

I prefer having the right ratio to watch videos making use of all the pixels in my monitor, but if you never watch any Films or Youtube, then it's arguably better to have a 16:10 screen. Having said that 16:9 seems to be the norm now, so finding a good value 1920x1200 monitor may be slightly harder.

Downscale? I thought extra black bars would just be added for 16:9 videos on a 16:10 monitor? Am I wrong then? :D

Actually I think I might be. I just went to check with my 1680x150 monitor and see black bars on youtube, some people set there youtube videos to stretch to fill in the black bars which looks worse in my opinion.

Bought this monitor 2 weeks ago for 136. I like that it uses pwm free back lighting, but the speakers are not very good. Also have others have said the pictures on Amazon are misleading, even though the bezels are really thin the picture doesn't fill the entire panel, leaving you with a sudo bezel so to speak. It uses capacitive buttons for osd and when you use them the monitor does shake a little, but overall I like this monitor, maybe it's because I've just upgraded from a ten year old screen but the colours seem to really pop for me.
