Side Monitors Suggestion

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
I am looking for two 24 inch or higher monitors to use on the sides of my gaming monitors. I am looking for the best bang for the buck, best color representation monitor. These aren't for gaming. They are going to be for school, coding, and surfing online. I am not sure what my budget is for this so I would like a few suggestions if possible.

General all-purpose monitor that's decent (is good but don't expect no backlight bleed on every sample, perfect uniformity, etc.) is Dell P2414H. It has a fully adjustable stand. Price is usually say $250 and under. It's 23.8" (if you count that as 24") 1080p IPS.

If you're more of a cheapskate or you just need those deep blacks, BenQ GW2450 (also see GW2450HM, GW2455 and variants, GW2460 and variants) is 24" 1080p VA, a little higher than $150 generally.

If you want 1920x1200, Asus VS24AH is decent and not much over $200. A more upscale model if you have the cash is HP Z24i, which is closer to $300 usually.

It doesn't sound like you'd need something more geared at graphics professionals that's way over that range in price (e.g. NEC P242W). And at this kind of size, you won't find all that much cheaper, especially if not TN.

Hmm. Which would you go with? The extra pixels on the 1200 sounds really nice but IPS has much more realistic colors, right? I'm not sure what to do.

Also, is it to much to ask for on the sides, the bezel, is thinner?

If you want a thin bezel, you could go with the Dell U2414H. 24" 1080p IPS with super-thin bezel. Usually around $300.

Huh? Everything mentioned so far except the VA panels that BenQ's using on the GW monitors listed is IPS including the 1920x1200 monitors named.

For thin bezels, 1920x1200 options are rare enough and there don't seem to be many or any with both. For 1080p, there's the relatively cheap Asus VN248H-P if the Dell U2414H looks spendy. AOC's i2367Fh is only 23".
