heya all,

am interested in both the

Acer S243HL £259.99

- Brightness: 250cd/m²

and the

BenQ G2420HDBL £149.99

- Resolution: 1920x1080
- Contrast Ratio: 5000000:1

- Response Time: 5ms
- Viewing Angles (H/V): 170°/160°

I have looked and not yet found any good reviews of these 2.

Anyone have any experience with them yet or know of any good reviews...?

Are there any 26"+ LED displays coming out soon for good prices - or out that I may have missed (not including Apple stuff)

My Bro has ordered the Acer and I have just ordered the BenQ to see, which should arrive tomorrow ^_^

Well, the BenQ should be here in a few more hours... :D 

The BenQ is a "constant on" sheet of LED's for its backlighting, anyone know if it is the same for the Acer S243HL ?

The £150 24" BenQ has arrived and actually seems fairly good so far :) 

I haven't run the calibration setup yet or played any games, but the quality seems very similar to the £250 Acer S243HL which my bro bought around the same time.

I think his is "very slightly" better, but if he had the choice he'd buy the cheaper one and save £100

Was ok on movies - though side by side the colours were different than the Acer, slightly - not wrong - both on their own are great, sometimes prefer one and then the other in different scenes...

Both monitors have a common TN "feature":

(am sitting close) grab a window and drag it from top to bottom and can notice a slight colour change - a gentle lightening of the blue - due to the increased viewing angle.

But will test on some games later and have a check out of the calibration software etc as so far have just had a play with some basic settings - if they seem good, think I will be buying 2 more of these BenQ's

Note BenQ Connections: 1x Analogue & 1x DVI-D


I hear that an Active Display Port to Analogue (or was it a DVI-D) adapter costs about $20 instead of the $100 for the HDMI version which I will save me some more money :D
