Worth exhanging an Asus VG248QE for a BenQ XL2420T if I want better image quality?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Forgetting the advantages that the Asus VG248QE has that I will be losing (from the reviews I've read VG248QE has slightly better response time and less ghosting ), is getting a BenQ XL2420T for $50 more worth it? The reason I want to exhange my VG248QE is due to it's image quality. The gradient banding, color reproduction, and washed out blacks are not up to my liking. I've read that the general consensus is that the BenQ XL2420T is superior in image quality. I guess what I'm asking is if that image quality is signifcantly better, or are they basically the same with the BenQ just barely getting the edge over the Asus in these quantified testing metrics.

Much of "image quality" is subjective, so I personally wouldn't switch based on that alone. Seems more like a side-grade than an upgrade. I personally prefer IPS panels over TFTs because of better color accuracy (some don't like IPS for gaming though).

Just putting this on the table:

Another route is to go to the 27" size, as the 27" 120Hz monitors have apparently tended to have generally better color than the newer 24" 120Hz monitors.

Also, if you use LightBoost, then it is worth noting that LightBoost is twice as contrasty / twice as colorful on the VG278H than it is on the VG248QE. So the LightBoost compromise is less on the more expensive VG278H.
