Found 25th Oct
This is BY FAR the cheapest QHD monitor I have ever seen. Not to mention, it's also IPS and is targeted at "designers" so is likely to have very good colour reproduction.

Also, there are also several ridiculously low priced used deals ("very good" and "like new" from £136.41) available in Amazon Warehouse, found here. I honestly have no idea how this monitor dropped in price so much, but it's a STEAL at this price!

EDIT - the "main" price has gone up, but you can still buy one for the lower price with a 2-4 week dispatch (here).

Incredible price for such a spec. I don't imagine it'll last long before Amazon jack up the price once orders are placed.

Cheers for this, bit the bullet and ordered one after almost 7 years of using this BenQ G2420HD I got in 2010. It's seen so many graphics cards in its time...

Oh , I still have that screen knocking about. It's horrendous. My condolences.

Coming from that monitor you're in for a real treat.

Still available - click the other sellers link. Currently with a delivery date of 2-4 weeks

Lacks the 10bit panel of the bigger cousins but honestly, who cares at this price point. You'd be shopping at a completely different price bracket if you were after that.

I'm just deciding whether to go for one or two of these for the home office

Click through to Amazon link they are still the lower price

Misprice, lets hope they deliver

Could someone tell me if this would still work OK at 1080p resolution ? Also is it a IPS ? Also has anyone been able to compare to a ultra wide 25" such as the recent deals on the LG.

The stand is great and I'm glad it has the USB hub but I could tell if it had speakers on first glimpse.
Thanks in advance for any replies.

I'd really of liked this for my dad as an upgrade, but he has an older Dell Optiplex GX620 Ultra Form Factor. Can't find the video specification for the Dell anywhere except a few off comments from people saying video output to DVI isn't compatible at 1440. :-(

What do you want to use it at 1080p for? Consoles?
It should be fine. You'll be dealing with interpolation as 1080p doesn't map to 1440p but it should still look very good.
The added resolution will be great for PC use.

I'd pick just any day over any cheapo 2560x1080 ultrawide panel.

Bought one for the Nephews pc build, cheers op

DVI's capable of 2560x1600 on its own. You could be being limited by the onboard GPU... wait no, just googled the machine, it's over a decade old. You are definitely being limited by the onboard GPU. Still the machine should output 1920x1080 over DVI happily enough and this monitor will accept that.

will this be good for a new pc gaming monitor? i have a GTX 1070, originally saw the deal for the Samsung 4k screen but backed out as I didn't believe my 1070 would be able to effectively run 4k and I don't plan on upgrading my card anytime soon. Will also use this for my PS4 (original version not PRO)

Thanks for getting back to me. Yes the option for consoles.(even though no longer game ATM) However I only have a really old hanging on desktop about 10 years old now. Running a and (can't think of model) which only benchmarks at 1600 ish and with 3gb of ddr2 ram ! Its hanging on for very basic office/net use. The main use I want it for is one of those zoostorm £59.99 notebooks with the dud batteries from a few months or so ago. That is why I was asking as I have no chance of using a 4k ATM but I'm not 100% sure about 1440p.

I've ordered as it is as I'm also hoping there will be enough movement in the stand to save needing to buy a monitor arm (hope to save £35 by not needing to buy one) as getting one and a laptop vesa mount is going to cost more than I paid for the thing I need to rise. The flexibility needs to match the option for a sitting/standing desk setup.

The other option I was considering was the lg 25" ultra wide or the 23" AOC which were £120 or £130 and £90ish respectively.

Thanks for your help

Ive got the RX480 4GB, Bought the HP omen deal that was on here free recently!!

I mean, it'll 'work', but you're gonna get an upscaled image. 1080p content will look better on a native 1080p monitor in most cases.

As for comparing to that ultrawide, this BenQ screen will be a fair bit taller, so will look 'bigger' in that respect. The ultrawide is basically a 19" 16:9 but wider to get an idea of how small it will actually seem in real life. I would not recommend such a small ultrawide at all.

If it's a size comparison you were after, here you go displaywars.com/24-…1x9

I have the 27" version of this BenQ monitor and it has been amazing. IPS screen with brilliant uniformity and colours. Thankfully hardly any glow at all and I have never noticed any bleed.
The build quality is very solid, love the blue light feature as well.

Not too sure how 1440p will look on a 24" screen but at this price it is more than worth a punt.

Would have loved a good deal on the 27", for another

God deal and heat added.

Can someone explain to me why this may be better for a photographer compared to another 1440p monitor? Thanks. I ordered one, in case of the price increase. What makes this good for the price, basically?

Will this work on HDMI

If it has a DVI input then you can use an inexpensive HDMI to DVI cable but it won't support audio.
If it has an audio input you can use that if it has speakers.

I'd look for a screen that can handle higher fps. Your card can run lots of games faster than 60fps, and anything above 100fps looks amazing compared to 60fps. I turn settings down on my games in favour of getting silky smooth gameplay above 120fps. You paid a lot for your graphics card so it is also worth investing in a good monitor that will show off the abilities of your GPU. Your monitor will last you many more years than your GPU if you buy the right one! I'd target/save for 1440p at 27" 120Hz+ as a good long-term investment. At 24", I'm not sure you'll see the difference between 1440p and 1080p in moving images. I'd say this screen is best for working with static images where deskspace is at a premium.

Thank you very much for the advice.. definitely gonna have a look around now. Thanks again

Bought 746 to put on ebay thanks.

In all honesty this would have been a great time for me to need a new monitor, ah well. Heat.

Would you recommend this monitor to go with the hp omen deal from Currys I got on here 2 or 3 weeks ago?

Check my edit. The main stock has now increased in price, but you can still buy it for £146.68 here if you're willing to wait 2-4 weeks for dispatching.

Sorry

Just bought one with a wait, but that's no issue at this price.
Thanks to hanpan999!

Anyone can explain to me why this is better than the other 1440ps for the same price? For photography, cheers
