ASUS VE248H
BenQ RL2450HT

ASUS VG248QE


And just because i looks sooo sexy with its thin bezel biggrin.gif
LG 23EA63V-P

Just the other day I learnt to be wary of those "Ultra-thin bezel" screens, the hard way. I bought an AOC i2367FH, which was also advertised on their site as having a tiny border around the image, however only after I had bought it and plugged it in, did I realize that there was actually a black border around the image, almost 1cm thick, see normally the bezel of a screen hides this, but AOC let this be visible so they could claim an ultra-thin bezel. The case could be similar with that LG screen, as seen in this image here (pretty sure its the same model):



You can see the noticeable black border around the edge of the image. So yes, the bezel itself is very thin, but that doesn't mean the image goes right up to it.

I literally just got the BenQ XL2420TE yesterday ( US time ). Love the monitor so far. Dont let the out of the box color disturb you. I have mine sitting next to a 2209wa Dell IPS panel and its hardly noticeable. One thing you will notice is the viewing angle color changes. I love the monitor so far. CSGO looks GREAT and so does BF3. I do run BF3 on medium setting to keep my frames higher. Still tweaking this. I only am running a GTX570. If the 770 ever come sub $300 I will get one of those.

Really impressed with this monitor although I mostly bought it to get away from PWM. Eye strain and all.
