Recommend me a 24" monitor

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
i'm in the market looking for a 24" 1920x1200 monitor. preferably LED. i have 3 24" monitors but want to replace at least one of them.


i have an hp lp2465 and LA2405wg. my computer use is primarily browsing. my center monitor is a D24W33 TN panel 2ms response time (no info on input lag. i assume it has better lag than most monitors. it won some award for the best gaming monitor a few years back. it plays good but has terrible terrible ghosting in portrait mode. i've permanently switched all my 24" monitors orientation to portrait mode.

since i'm looking to replace my secondary and tertiary monitors (or maybe even all 3), i dont want to spend too much on them. (i still have my zr30w but never use it). i prefer 3 24" monitors over the 30". it'd be nice to replace all my monitors with some nice dell ultrasharps. i havent been looking at monitors for a while so i don't know what's out there.
i like good stuff so i dont mind spending the extra $5 on something nice.


now for some monitors i've come across:

1. Dell 2408wfp ultrasharp: i like dell monitors and think highly of them despite their high price tag. but this monitor's input lag seems unacceptable to me:now i don't know how bad that is compared to my lp2465 which is what i have right now.that's a video of the lp2465 compared to crt.
the 2408wfp "probably" shows better text than the lp2465. i find the lp2465 a little too blurry for browsing. spec sheet of the 2408wfp says it uses 110W which is about the same as the lp2465 so i will not be looking at this 2408wfp. i have quite a few appliances in the house and my bill lately has been high. so i would prefer an LED monitor.

2. HP ZR24w: since i have a zr30w this 24" version would compliment it well. the reviews i've read of this monitor have been so so. this monitor has been compared to the u2410 and an older lp2475w. i want to stay away from old technology as much as possible because they use a lot of power. i decided to pull off the plug of my zr30w because i rarely use it and uses a typical power of 130W (185W max). it's now mostly off. i might just get rid of it after a few months. i'd rather use the 3 24"s in portrait than the 30". I came to the conclusion that the extra real estate of the 3 monitors is much more beneficial to me despite the more power consumption, bad viewing angles, bezels, and color depth.
as so long as my center monitor has lower input lag compared to the zr30w it hass been way better gaming on eyefinity compared to the single 30" 2560x1600. outside gaming the single 30" is no match compared to the 3 guys.


i'm not a fan of the asus, acer, benq, lg monitors but i have an open mind.
for now i'm looking more at the dell and hp lines. u2410, u2412m, zr24, zr2440, l2445w etc. let me know of any other 24" 16:10 monitors

i am absolute not even considering 16:9 monitors. part of the reason i'm looking to upgrade my monitors is because i think ppl are dumping their 16:10's because of the 120Hz monitors. i'm not a gamer like that so i dont really care for 120hz.


i have some high quality lcd arms and all my monitor bases are off. so all a monitor just has to have vesa mounts.


so what are some good 24" 16:10 1920x1200 monitors out there now?

I have been looking at the dell u2412m, but that is because i pretty much have to have an ips panel. I'm also interested in what other people have to say.

i am too looking at the u2412m. it's seemed to be a consumer version of the u2410. that wouldnt be bad for me being that i already have the zr30w which would make up for the color depth the u2412m doesnt have. i'm not a professional photographer so colors arent all that important. i'm sure the u2412m is more than acceptable. and it also looks like it has one of the lowest input lags of the new ips monitor models.
the lack of a card reader isn't important either. i have an external card reader.

it's an LED panel and led's are much cheaper to manufacture.
the hp that's supposed to compete with it.. the zr2440w, fails in input lag even though it has very good power consumption.,

now just to do some research for bugs found on the u2412m..

The U2410 is more needed if you are doing print design. The U2412HM is much better monitor if you intend not to use it for print design. I have 2 U2312 and they're excellent monitors, I like them much more than I like my 2 U2410s. Less heat and no backlight blooding.

I have a dell 2412 and its really great for games. It does however have quite severe backlight bleed. I also have an asus 24" ve248q LED monitor which has backlight bleed but not nearly as bad as my dell. I considered returning the dell but just didn't want to bother with the hassle. I really recommend dell monitors simply because their value is so high. The adjustable stand is really great (most low end 24" dont have anything but tilt) and the extra pixels really do matter. I got my dell on a 1saleaday deal for about $260 shipped to me, but anything under $300 for the 2412 is a steal imho.

the HM is out of question because its rare and impossible to find used.
im looking out for the u2412m and zr2440w. which ever opens up first i'll get. this reminds me when i was looking for a 30" and was watching the u3011 and zr30w and the zr30w opened up first at an unbeatable price ($730 with 3 years warranty) and i dove.

thanks for informing me about that version. i have 4 monitors and i'm upgrading them one by one so there's no need or rush to get new ones.
