Hello all hope u are fine
Well i just got my LG W2452V,after waiting for about 3 years for a 24" monitor to be available
2ms response time
i replaced my 22" monitor because it had 30000:1 contrast and hurted my eyes and i needed a bigger screen too
All i can say is wow it has an excellent image quality,indeed alot better than my 22" monitor.
So lets post some benchies the first game i played was COD4 SP first mission(Cargo Ship),all of the settings are maxed out and the resolution is 1920x1200:
The second one is STALKER CLEAR SKY,I played this with 1920x1200 resolution with in games default maximum settings with no AA but with DX10.1 and in this pic u are seeing i got 45 FPS i didnt play much i just wanted to see the FPS and the quality.
And the last one i tested was Crysis Warhead,again i played @ 1920x1080(Strange it doesnt have 1920x1200) 0xAA and everything was @ ULTRA HIGH(Via using a cfg file) (except for sound quality which i set it to mainstream)
And i played the first mission from where u see a KPA truck blows in front of u and untill when friendly planes drop bombs,it gave me a 30-50 FPS solid
At first i thought i would have some problems with games and my card may not do well but i was wrong i had an excellent and smooth game play and i really enjoyed it
I definitely recommend this monitor for all who want a good 24" monitor with a good price.
it's a 10 000:1 dynamic ratio (says the original is 800:1, I assume that's static). Dynamic ratios means nothing much... PR term.
It draws 80watts of power, that's huge. The max frequency is 75hz and a nice 400cd/m brightness. At that level, most users have to tone it down or they get eye strain. Also, the gray frame around the screen kind of gets in the way, along with the bigass blue button. It honestly looks distracting.
It's a 4000:1 dynamic ratio (but 1000:1 static ratio, some would say it's better, I'll just say it's mostly equivalent to yours). Same pixel pitch, same 2ms GTG, same 250cd/m and slightly smaller viewing angle (I stand in front of mine, 160 degrees vs 170degrees is not something I have issues with). On the upside, it goes all the way to 85hz and draws only 55watts. It's got pretty much the same weight but the frame is all black (matte) and there's only a small 1cm diameter button with a faint green light in the middle. It definitely doesn't distract.
The G2400wd is around 350-360$CAD while the W2452V is sold at FutureShop for 400$CAD (can't seem to find it around on any online retailer, that's a minus for me).
shopper.cnet.com provides USA retail prices of $408.75 - $568.06 at 11 online stores for the W2452V while the G2400WD is listed as $369.99 - $449.84 at 8 online stores.
Therefore, for those of you considering a 24inch monitor, look into the BenQ G2400WD. It performs great, comes at an awesome price (I bought a 22inch for an equivalent price just 18 months ago) and offers great performances.
While we're at it, I'd like to see other folks discussing their monitors in the same way to sort of make a "database" to compare the monitors
@ Maziar - The monster rig is now complete...Enjoy it!
@ Antacid - I've been using that same BenQ 2400WD myself for months and must say I've been beyond thrilled with it. I also paid well under $400 shipped... what a bargain for sure. Not speaking ill of any other 24", but I'll second your recommendation of the BenQ as well worth considering for a highly affordable 24" gaming monitor. To be honest, I would not even consider anything else if looking to buy another 24". Friends who have seen it have put it on top of their wish list too.
