If you can score a Samsung or Dell in that price range, I would get something from that brand. BenQ is part of Acer, and I've had nothing but bad experiences with their tech support/customer service. If Dell has an outlet store for Canada, you could probably score a really good deal on a refurbished monitor.

I've been very happy with my E248WFP, which I bought brand new from Best Buy (Futureshop in Canada, IIRC) for US$298.

go get whatever the best deal mva/pva or ips 24" out right now. check [h]ardocp's displays forum for some good reading. i scored my LG 24" MVA for cheap on clearance. avoid tn panels.

Hm... soo many options.. all i need is 24" with DVI connection. Good/fast response time and no ghosting. Monitor that will last me @ least 2-4 years :D

I love my Acer and got it for under $400.... but then again I have not dealt with thier tech support *knock on wood* so I can't comment on that. We use 24" Samsungs at work... they are also a very nice choice.

I agree, High quality crt's arent for limp wristed, slack bellied types.

What is it that certain people have against "tn" panels? I never looked at the panel type when I bought this monitor. It's 26", has a great picture and was only $315 on clearance... I fail to see where it being a "tn" panel plays into whether or not a person should or should not buy it. It's more enjoyable than my previous 22" crt.

well its not that tns are bad exactly, its just that other panel types have better color, contrast and viewing angles. once you know, theres no reason to go tn

TN panels just seem to lack the quality of a MVA/IPS panel. After having a IPS panel for 2 years i would definately not get a TN panel next. In fact the new 24" panel im looking at is the sucsessor to the monitor i have now and uses an enhanced MVA type called AMVA.
