This is kind of a deal killer since not all games can do 1920x1200 with full bells and whistles. I get the BenQ today which is very well reviewed, especially over at Hardforum.

I will know more after I test the G2400W tonight. There is a really good comparison test here:

Intresting I looking forward to hear what you think about the BenQ

My choises have been between these 2 monitors and I have read a lot at Hardforum, they seem to like them both but as you said the 2493 dont have proper scaling so thats sucks

I wonder about the contast tho as Samsungs have so much higher but I dont know if it really means anything more then just numbers so let me know

Yea that’s why it sounds so good. The other known brand monitors that use the panel cost around £450. So it will be a bargin if it is any good.

I have convinced one of my mates to order the monitor as he is still using a 18 inch 4:3 and he wanted a new one. He should have it tomorrow so I can take a look over the weekend (its a bank holiday also ) at some point and then decide if I will get it or not. I think it will come down to the build quality. I don't expect it will be brilliant but for £200 I wouldn’t expect it to be up to the standard of lets say a Samsung or Dell.

OK I went round to see my mates and its a great monitor for the price. OK the build quality is no ware near a good as my Dell but is a passable and really the main thing is the quality of the panel and that was very good, OK again it was not as good as my Dell (IPS panel) but way better than a TN imo.
So I just ordered one. It should be here by the end of the week (1-3 days delv) . When I get it I will post some pics.

Well I got the monitor and its great. I will post some photos etc later today for you. I checked the menu and the panel is a SA-LTM240M2-L01, which apparently is a Samsung S-PVA that's also used in the Eizo CE24W.

Just got mine BenQ G2400W the other day and man it's totaly awsome. just as they say on hardforum, everyone seems to love this monitor. It's cheap super fast and super nice colours.

The top gaming monitor no question about it. the best hardware upgrade I ever did
Works very nice for my new gaming Pc infact its totaly perfect!

Default Re: New Monitor should I buy or not??

Well here are a few images of the monitor (sorry about the photos I do need to get a better camera next thing to buy )

Here is the box it came in


Set up on my desk (it looked huge on the desk )


On the Windows desktop now its time to set up the colours correctly which for me takes a few days to get just right.


Panel version (so pleased about the one I got)


If you take a look on this page it tells you some infor about different panels http://lcdtech.no-ip.info/en/data/lc...n.monitors.htm



I can really say this is a great Monitor for the price it did have a bit of backlight bleed but after running it for a few hours, that has now nearly gone (most posts about this monitor say the same). I have played a few games COPD4, TF2, Crysis and imo it has less lag than my old 2007WFP which is a plus for me.
OK the case thats it is in is not great and the whole thing weighs less than my old 2007WFP. But that means I can move it easy if I need to. But for the price of £215 inc delv I did not go wrong at all.

Looks EdZachary like the Viewsonic Q241wb, but with a little more shiny trim. I just got the Q241wb for the office. Luckily, mine is the sPVA and not the TN version.
