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
