Looking for a good cheap monitor

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys,

With black friday tomorrow, a couple of retailers have listed some monitors I was interested in. Looking for a 24" Monitor, under $200. The Dell 24" 2412 has me interested, but it's pretty frigging expensive.

Anyways, the candidates:

BenQ EW2420 - http://www.ncix.ca/products/index.php?sku=55964&vpn=EW2420&manufacture=BenQ&promoid=1115

BenQ BL2400PU - http://www.ncix.ca/products/index.php?sku=55963&vpn=BL2400PU&manufacture=BenQ&promoid=1115

BenQ V2410 - http://www.ncix.ca/products/index.php?sku=49657&vpn=V2410&manufacture=BenQ&promoid=1115

Asus VE248H - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824236102&Tpk=Asus%20VE248H

Acer S243HLbmii Black 24 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16824009206&Tpk=Acer%20S243HL

Feel free to recommend any other monitors.

Thanks!

Most videophiles will say its silly getting a 24'' monitor at a 23'' resolution....is that what you prefer? Also is this mainly used for gaming or anything else?

I personally prefer something that is mountable (VESA compliant) because I can't stand looking down at my monitor. I also hate the glossy look that most new monitors have, its impractical and impossible to keep clean. Also there is the great debate between TN and IPS. If you are gaming then a $200 budget should be fine for a TN pannel.

If I was looking for a 24'' 1080p monitor in that budget I'd purchase this.
Here's why: 2ms, LED back-lit, then bezel, VESA compliant, and great reviews.

If you decided to someday step into the 1200p world, I'd recommend this as a good starter for a gamer. I've had mine for little for a year. Only downside (other than TN) are the viewing angles. When turned portrait its painfully obvious it doesn't belong there. tongue.gif
