My new BenQ 24" 2420HDB review, overall pretty good so far

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Alright folks, so earlier today I got my new BenQ 24" 2420HDB on sale from CanadaCompters for $159+tax/sh, so thats very good.

It only came with a VGA cord, powered it up, and it seems overall pretty good.

I haven't had to mess with the color yet, the only color complainant I have noticed is that the top ~12% of the screen, greys are too green, its hardly noticeable on the whites, or any colors...

I don't know if the color settings will fix it that much, because the rest of it looks fine for grays, but I'm not concerned enough to try for now.

The only other issue is light bleed on black, along the very top edge, centered it is across about 75% of it, my old Samsung 23" P2350 that I broke, had some light bleed somewhere too, I don't remember where, but anyway, its not that bad.

When I ran passmarks monitortest, it looked good enough to my eyes.

The off center/angle viewing seems very good, much better than I remember on my P2350, and it used to have a bit to much red/purple tint sometimes, so that life...for TN panels I guess.

I'm currently using a P4 640 3.2 GHz (my RAM and MB are in transit), with WinXP, so DX9c

I tried GTA IV @1920x1080, high,high and used 10-detail/10-the video one

To my amazement, the 5670 at 900MHz/4670MHz, pumped at 16.16 FPS, at 1280x1020 on med/high, 5/5 it was only around 17 or 18 or 19???

The BenQ did fine there, I tired Scarface the World is yours @ 1080p maxed, BenQ did fine


I tried FAR CRY 2 completely maxed @1080p with DX9 of course, and again the 5670 surprised me, it was barely different from 1280x1020, and it looks great, I can't wait till late Feb when I get a 69?0 and later CF and WaterCool them and a x6 1090


And so the monitor did great there too, the game looked great, can't wait too play them for real with 69?0

Bottom line on sale for $159 ($195 with tax and plane ride), that was a steal
