A budget monitor ~$150

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi guys, I am looking for a budget monitor for my acquaintance.

~24", 1080P.

(e)IPS would be nice, and I see there are some options in that price range, but how bad is ghosting? How bad IPS panels are on them in general?

If it's pretty bad, TN is fine, but I would like to avoid low end ones that shift colors even at 10 degrees smile.gif. Also it's more of general use monitor, and maybe some casual gaming.

3 years ago I got a 24" 1080p BenQ LCD for $205 all inc.

It served me well, worked better than my Samsung Sync master P23____

Back to using it now, my 30" IPS fried or its lamp fried

I am using BenQ GW2450, bought from TD around 2 years ago. $148 total.
It works perfectly, I am not a dedicated gamer, so I use my monitor to watch movie with my girlfriend, play battlefield and diablo, and writing papers...
out of box the settings were bad... I just followed the calibration on tftcentral and then the color and brightness became great! no worse than any IPS I've actually seen in Bestbuy..
quality is solid, view angle and black is much better than TN, 4ms is good...
nothing I can complaint about...
for $150, 24' 1080p, this is the bang for the buck


PS. just checked AMAZON, $120 now, awesome deal to me...
