What 24" 120Hz monitor to get

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
Hello

I'm looking for a 24" 120Hz monitor for my 3D setup. My budget is ~£300, although it can go a tad higher if needed.

The BenQ XL2410T is the one that I'm thinking about getting, however, there's something holding me back: The maximum brightness is exactly the same as my old Asus VH242H, which was hideous. However, I don't know if it's even comparable, since it's an LED display.

What do you think? Is there a monitor this size and within this price range that offers better color, brightness, or overall quality, or is this one the way to go?

Cheers
Normandy

Yes the BenQ looks a good monitor and at a reasonable price. The DELL Alienware Monitor looks fantastic. I also like the ASUS for around the same price as the Benq I think it is better as well ASUS are a solid manufacturer I have had loads of stuff from them and they never skip a beat.

Hope this helps I think if you want to stick under £300 I would go for the ASUS.

Good Luck Chris

The ASUS one looks good, it's also considerably brighter than the BenQ one. It's not like 0.6" is going to make that much of a difference either.

Anyone else?
