Is the BenQ VW2430H my best choice?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I am looking to purchase a new monitor and came across the BenQ VW2430H on sale for $180 shipped at Newegg. I am wondering if it is the best bang for the buck for my budget of $200. My requirements are as follows:

1. Sub-$200 BNIB
2. No TN panels
3. 23"-24" with 1080p resolution
4. Must have DVI, HDMI, and VGA
5. Would prefer to purchase from Newegg or Amazon

I will not be using this monitor for gaming, so image quality, black levels, and color accuracy is most important to me. Any other recommendations or comments on the BenQ linked below would be much appreciated. Thanks in advance! smile.gif

I ended up purchasing the BenQ VW2430H from Newegg. Their spec sheet is wrong, as this monitor has a 5,000:1 contrast ratio and is indeed an LED VA panel. Just wanted to post that info in case anyone else was interested. smile.gif
