In the market for a new 24" screen.

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I've decided that after four years with my Viewsonic VX2335WM 22" with a max digital res of 1680X1050, that I would finally get myself a new 24" screen. A max res of 1920x1080 would be ideal though I'm not sure if 1920x1200 shows much difference.

I don't have much experience with buying monitors so all suggestions are welcome. My max budget is $300AU and I've already had a monitor suggested, a Samsung BX2450 24". Feel free to offer any insight about this monitor.

I appreciate any and all help!

From what I can tell people are really keen on the Dell u2410 which is an IPS Monitor that is 24" and is 1920x1200. I've never seen anyone complain about having a larger resolution except in the fact that movies may have larger black lines, but the extra real estate is really nice for daily computer use. If I had 500 dollars to spend, I would definitely get the u2410.

Here is a link to a good 24 ips. From amazon US so I don't know that kind of prices you will find where you are. If you can't afford one of the IPS I would look into a good 120hz monitor




Five dollars says hydros is on this thread solely talking about ratio in the next day or so.

here is a dell 23 ips. I know a little smaller but probably in your price range

Not only is it out of my price range, I can't find anywhere to buy it within Australia, lol.

The Australian dollar is basically at parody with the US dollar so $300 US should be affordable.

I have 3x the Asus VW266H and it is a great 24" 1920x1080monitor. It has really great colors and it is only $199.99 US dollars. It has this feature called "Splendid", and it makes the colors much more vivid than they were at first. I highly recommend this monitor and it fits in your price range.

You should be able to get it from....Dell.com

And it often goes on sale for $450.

I assumed you were American since you posted the BX2450 with the American dollar price (500 dollars).

But a lot has changed if you're Australian and can only spend 300.

I would try to score a u2311 if you can or a u2312HM. ...this of course assumes that Australia isn't cut from the rest of the world and can find a Dell?

If not get the HP ZR24w. Also a nice monitor.

And if you don't have that then idk what to tell you. I know Australia may have ~ the same value as an American dollar but an American dollar ALWAYS get you more technology wise.

That was it's original price. The Samsung BX2450 can go as cheap as $200 from the store where I built my PC from.

The only 24" Dell monitor that fits my budget from dell.com.au is the Dell ST2420L, though the BX2450 appears much better.
