I've decided that it is time to get myself a 24" IPS Monitor. My budget is ~£220. I preferably want a 5ms response time as I like my games (is 5ms even noticeable over 8ms in games?) and 16:10 aspect ratio. I'm not fussed about having HDMI, speakers/audio pass through or USB ports. I am also not too fussed about having a fancy stand as I will probably end up getting a clamp on dual monitor stand for my desk.
So far I have found these options:
AOC I2460PXQU
iiyama X2485WS-B1
Asus VS24AHL
BenQ BL2411PT
Dell U2412m
I have found very limited information about the first 3 monitors but it seems that the AOC and iiyama monitors are not better than the other options. A problem I found with the Asus monitor is that it doesn't seem to have 1:1 pixel mapping therefore allowing it to run in 16:9 as/when/if you want to. Does anyone know if any of the other monitors have this problem? The BenQ BL2411PT has the same panel as the ASUS monitor above, but it is set up differently. I keep seeing the Dell U2412m popping up as well. Is this still a viable option? It is quite an old model and they are not that widely available. Also, with it being an older model does the dead pixel policy still stand?

Has anyone got any input on which monitor to get or any other options I could look at? I wouldn't mind getting a 16:9 monitor if it was much better than any 16:10 options.
