    the one from box has best response time, other than that personal needs for inputs could have a difference, but if you're using it in an office response time probably wont matter too much.

    So I would favour the extra inch rather then the better response time. So which of the two 24" monitor deals is better? HP via John Lewis or Acer via eBuyer?

    Neither have speakers and neither appear to be mountable.

    The John Lewis HP has 2 year warranty while the eBuyer Acer has DVI port in addition.

    2 year guarantee is slightly different than a warranty though I cannot remember what the difference is, it's something in small print though.
    Neither do have speakers, though you wont get audio on an ips monitor at that price range, most audio on monitors close to £100 isnt great anyway, you would want closer to £200 if sound is a concern for you, though I don't know the kind of office work you do or if it would require sound. If mounting is a concern for you I would look up mounting systems first then monitors to make sure they are compatible.
    The inputs are entirely down to what you require though, check what your pc has, for example my GPU requires dvi so thats an issue for me, but an office computer will probably still use vga as it would be unlikely to have such high end graphics. you can usually find cable adapters/conversions for such things anyway, it really depends on what you need though.

    in terms of personal needs and use the HP monitor has a higher tilt angle, if technical requirements arent an issue for you that could be a selling point

    Ignore manufacturer stats for monitors, they bear little relation to reality. There's barely more than a 1 in 3 chance that the one with the lowest response time has the least ghosting.

    Bear in mind they're the same resolution so you'll fit exactly the same amount on screen, the effect of the larger diagonal is just to make everything slightly larger.

    £100 monitors are all fairly similar so if you don't have any specific requirements then I'd just pick whichever one you like the look of.
