Thanks

Think I'm gonna either get the Dell U2413 or HP Z24i, seem to be the best monitors in my price range, unless anyone else has other options?

Bump, what about just standard 1080p monitors?

Considering the Dell U2413, HP Z24i or Asus PA248Q. Leaning toward the Asus atm

So out of the Eizo V2336W & HP Z24i which one would be better?

I can get them for more or less the same price, HP $560 each, Eizo $509 each

The EV2336 is better since it has a clearer coating which makes colors look more and clearer vibrant, suffers from less overshoot ghosting and lacks the "slim/frame-less" casing which is good since monitors like the Dell P/U series have an inner black bezel which makes the blacks look light (grayish/washed out) in comparison.
Ah ok, thanks, I already read the U2414H doesnt play nice with Nvidia cards lol so that put me off

What about out of the Eizo V2336W & HP Z24i (gotta love dem Aus prices), is the Eizo still the way to go?

The Z24i can suffer from cross-hatching and it might use an IPS or PLS (no-cross-hatching) panel. Read through this HP Z24i [H] Thread.. I would pick whichever one can be easily returned or exchanged, a few people from [H] own one. Both are better than the U2413H which suffers from really obvious overshoot ghosting and the PA249Q which has slow pixel response times for an IPS/PLS panel and wide gamut monitors are a waste of money unless calibrated and color managed.

I read through both those links, makes it even harder lol some people seem to love them while others hate them

. It's annoying how Prad seems to be the only site to actually review these monitors and TFT Central doesnt

Either one cant exactly be easily returned lol thats why I'm being so careful about what monitor I choose, dont wanna end up having crap AG like on my U2311H's

I plan on getting a Spyder4Pro to use on all 3 of my screens so calibration isnt an issue, interested to see how my Asus 144Hz goes after calibration

Aotta ask how does 1200p compare to 1080 with movies and stuff? I see a lot of people say with 1200p you get black bars above and below the video but every 1080 screen I've ever seen does that to...

16:9 content will be displayed with black bars on the top and bottom on 1920x1200 monitors which are 16:10. The Z24i & EV2336 have semi-glossy coatings which are much lighter than the AG the U2311H uses. The Spyder 4 is inaccurate and can't read contrast/blacks properly. Get a colormunkie or higher end i1 display pro which can be used with Agryll which is free and one of the best calibration programs.

Ah ok makes sense now. Just as long as they dont have that grainy crappy look to them I'll be happy lol, cant stand reading on my Dells, I'd rather read stuff on my Asus which isnt any where near as sharp. Oh I didnt know that about the Spyder, I can get the Colormunki Smile or i1Display Pro, I was only gonna get the Spyder coz I seen heaps of people use it

I have a BL2411PT that I just bought last week.

In a nutshell:

-Screen is very clear and barely any sign of "grainy" looks. Text is very sharp and clear without any kind of pixelation.
-Nice eco feature that turns off the screen when you are away from your computer and automatically turns it on when you sit in front of it.
-BIG screen real estate at 1920x1200.
-Nice colors out of the box. You can fine tune them to your liking without any hassle.
-Stand is very study and still.

Overall, I am happy with my purchase.

I also had a Asus PA249Q, but returned it. That one did have a grainy look compared to the Benq.

let me know if you have any questions.

I had a look at that BenQ and a couple of others TFT Central reviewed, they look damn nice but I cant get them here in Aus

Might think about trying to import them but not sure yet, thanks tho, good to hear consumer happy with it

Importing won't be worthwhile with the additional costs, inability to return+exchange, lack of warranty and a cross-hatching free Z24i is better than the BL2411PT since the BL2411PTs coating is grainier. The EV2336 is also better than the BL2411PT but is smaller.

Buy the Z24i and EV2336 with a credit card and return the one you like the least, assuming you can return both at no cost.

Well all that for importing plus in Aus we get slapped with an import tax if the product/s themselves are over $1000

I might do that, or maybe I might just take a change on one or the other

Which one has the better sRGB colours or are they both the same?

Thinking I might go for the HP Z24i and see how I go, if not I'll change to the EV2336W

The EV2436W and P232W use the same coating as the U2311H. The P242W isn't really better than the EV2336 and is a waste of money unless you buy the Spectraview Kit to take advantage of the hardware calibration features, plus one can buy better 27" 1440p monitors like the AOC Q2770QPU for the same price.

Oh I didnt know that, so out of those 5 monitors the Z24i and EV2336 are still the best choices?
