Hows those viewing angles for you. I'm with pwnography on the S-PVA panels, superior color at all angles. Hope the view angles are good enough for you.

They are great, the reason I was concerned is because on my computer desk the monitor is above me, like around a foot plus or minus some inches.

It really looks beautiful, I'm very happy with the display and the features of the monitor and the color is nice a rich and very VERY crisp.

Good choice. Would have been my third suggestion. However, the blues in the MK241 are a bit off and are not consistently off so you can't really adjust. Though if you don't notice it then no worries.

What would have been your first suggestion? For all sizes, and/or just out of 24" monitors.

Honestly I don't, I do photo and video work so rarely it wouldn't matter to me that much anyway. One thing I did notice is that the reds seem super vibrant compared to other colors, but its not really bad to me because the reds look really good.

I'd get the 24 inch Dell Ultrasharp, but thats just me. But it'd be precisely 600 bucks.

The reds and greens tested out pretty level according to ExtremeTech, so perhaps it is low blue that is showing up. Anyway, very good choice for your monitor! You should be proud that you didn't listen to the neverending plethora of Samsung "BW" fans.

There are 3 monitors that I would be happy with owning at the 24" size category.

Category 1: you will mainly play games:
1) Samsung 2493HM
2) ASUS MK241
3) Dell 2408WFP

Category 2: you focus mainly on image work:
1) Dell 2408WFP
2) ASUS MK241
3) Samsung 2493HM

Category 3: you do a lot of both:
1) Samsung 2493HM
2) Dell 2408WFP
3) ASUS MK241

Both the ASUS and Samsung monitors have negligible input lag, which means they are good for gaming. If the Dell did not have 2-3 frames of input lag, it would be my first choice in all 3 categories because of its superb gamut coverage and very good color accuracy (it is a slight bit better than that of the Samsung 2493HM). The color accuracy of the ASUS MK241 is lower than the other two because it has issues with displaying blues, and it does this inconsistently which means even calibration can't entirely fix the issue. The only weakness of the Samsung 2493HM in my eyes is the 75% NTSC color gamut coverage, which is only slightly above average. The ASUS MK241 has 99% coverage and the Dell 2408WFP has 105% coverage making them good for image editing.

For category 1 I feel that low input lag is the most important, followed by color accuracy are then gamut coverage. In a game you generally won't be freezing each frame to analyze the slight color variations, so you probably will notice color accuracy issues more than a lack of intermediate colors, thus I put the Samsung ahead of the ASUS here.

For category 2, I would think that color gamut coverage is more important than color accuracy (assuming the color accuracy difference isn't too high) since one can calibrate the monitor (though as mentioned above, the ASUS monitor is not consistently off in its blues so calibration will only go so far), so I put the ASUS in front of the Samsung, but this is a preference and so you could make a case for switching the 2nd and 3rd ranked monitors. Since Dell has really good color accuracy out of the box, superb color gamut reproduction, and input lag is not important, it is ranked first.

The same goes for category 3 as category 1 in terms of input lag, but the importance of color accuracy or color gamut coverage is a toss up. You could probably make a case to have the entire category 3 rankings restructured, but I figure since the Dell has better color accuracy and better color gamut coverage than the ASUS, it should be put ahead of the ASUS, and only falls behind the Samsung because of the input lag inherent in the Dell and because the Samsung 2493HM color accuracy is unmatched.

Granted, although I have numbers to back up what I've said, the rankings are still my opinion so take them as you will.

Edit: The Gateway FHD2400 also appears to be a decent choice. It has excellent color coverage (slighty above 90%) and input lag that is slighly less than a frame, but also has lower color accuracy than all 3 of the other monitors listed above. I have been asked about the BenQ FP241W, but I can't seem to find any actual numbers on it like I have the other monitors here, so I cannot rightfully say anything positive or negative about it with any certainty; one can only go off of the manufacturer specifications and those should generally only be consulted as a last resort.

Nice bit of information dude!

I'm glad I made a smart decision hahahaa.


I'm super happy with the monitor thats for sure, I've hooked up my acer 19" and my sony HDTV to compare the blues out of my curiosity and I cant see a significant difference in the actually hue of the colors ? Maybe I got a good one ? The blues seem very true! I also downloaded a Blue planet 1080p clip that has a lot of blues in it and it looks quite amazing and the colors look very great!
