Dell P2414H or BenQ BL2411PT?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
These two models are one of the best for their price and while there are very recommended everywhere there is no comparison between them. It is really difficult for me to decide which one to buy. I will appreciate every advice. Thank you!

You should find this thread helpful. The initial comparison is made between the ASUS VS24AH (uses the same panel as the BL2411PT) and P2414H. Further down that thread the VS24AH is then compared to the BL2411PT, which will complete the picture for you.

The BenQ has a slightly more generous colour gamut (complete sRGB coverage), very slightly lighter matte screen surface and doesn't dim quite as far as the Dell. Really the main difference for most people is the 1920 x 1200 resolution (16:10 aspect ratio) and 24.1" screen of the BenQ vs. 1920 x 1080 resolution (16:9 aspect ratio) and 23.8" screen of the Dell.

PCM2, thank you for your answer. I really don't understand anything about displays. Are these

positives for BenQ or not? And is a good idea to pay $70 more for that? I will start to read the suggested thread. Thank for pointing me to that.

It depends what you intend to do with the monitor. For general use and the sake of simplicity it's really the resolution and aspect ratio that I'd focus on. The thread linked to mentions why you should consider this when gaming and why gamers generally prefer the 16:9 ratio. smile.gif

I don't play games. I am reading the thread you suggested and I am surprise that you said that P2414H has less backlight bleeding. People having BL2411PT don't complain from bleeding:

The BenQ overshoots less (ghosting which appears in the form of colored or transparent halos/glow around moving objects) than the Dell P2414. The Dells seem to have more light bleeding issues. Use the thread search function, there are large threads dedicated to both the P & U 24" Dell monitors. All of these monitors use the same coating which is grainy compared to the semi-glossy coating the Eizo EV2336 uses.

and I hardly find any negative comments about it. Of course there are more people having the Dell's model and it is normal to have more negatives. Also people tend to post something when they aren't satisfied than when there are. On your site there are many positive feedback about P2414H.

That's quite correct about the P2414H, it's seen a surge of popularity and people are more likely to write to complain than give positive impressions. I actually said that the VS24AH generally has more backlight bleeding than the P2414H, which it does. The BL2411PT tends to have few if any issues with backlight bleed - much better than the ASUS in that regard and generally a bit better than the Dell too. Make sure you read the comparison between betwen the ASUS and the BenQ further down that thread.

Sorry, It's my mistake.

PCM2, I found that HP Z24i is also a good choice comparing to these two. I can't find review on your website about this model. Do you have any impressions?
I read It has matte coating cross-hatching issues. Is it true?

HP are very difficult to work with as an independent monitor reviewer in the UK so we don't review their monitors or test them too often. The Z24i isn't a model I've used myself nor one I've received user feedback from, but from the reading I've done it doesn't seem to offer any advantages over the BenQ really. It does seem like a decent monitor though and if you can find it at a much better price than the BenQ (and from somewhere with a good returns policy) then it might be worth considering.

=DEAD='s HP Z24i had light cross-hatching, which can only be seen at an angle. It has a true semi-glossy coating, which is an advantage over the BenQ and Dell.
The BenQ has faster pixel response times than the HP according to PRAD.
The HP and BenQ both have 99% sRGB coverage as compared to the Dell's <90% according to =DEAD=.
The Dell P2414H has been known to be able to OC to 80Hz w/o skipping frames.

You can't really go wrong with either monitor although I'd pick either the HP or BenQ for their taller aspect ratio and better sRGB coverage.
