    Which 24" Monitor

    Not sure which monitor to get.
    NEC LCD20WGX2
    Dell 2407WFP-HC
    Dell 2408WFP
    LG L245WP

    Has to be no more than £460 (would prefer under £400).

    I'm just getting confused after looking at reviews.

    Re: Which 24" Monitor

    I'm in the same position, but after quite a lot of reserach (including asking for advice on Hexus) I will probably be buying the NEC. They are part of Mitsubishi, and they have alsways had a good reputation for monitors, and they have a very comprensive spec page on their website (which I'm sure you have found)

    Re: Which 24" Monitor

    How about the Acer P243W Widescreen LCD Monitor - Black/Silver monitor

    It's available at overclockers for £258:49 and looks really nice with plenty of customer 5* reviews

    Has 1920*1200 resoltion and is fully HDCP with VGA/DVI/HDMI ports
    ---------------------------------------------------

    almost the same spec, but this time from BENQ

    BenQ G2400W 24" Widescreen HDMI/HDCP LCD HD Monitor - Black

    again from overclockers at £260.84
    ----------------------------------------------------
    Last and not least a 24" Dell

    Dell TrueColour E248WFP 24" Widescreen LCD Monitor - Midnight Grey

    DVI and 5ms response for £270.24 again from overclockers (No HDMI port this time)
    ----------------------------------------------------

    Three good brand name monitors there for very decent prices. Sorry for no links but I need to get 5 posts first , and no I'm not on overclockers referral program (if they even have one)

    Re: Which 24" Monitor

    Just realised that the NEC monitor you quoted is a 20". If you want the 24", probably the one to go for is this

    NEC Display Solutions - MultiSync® LCD2470WNX

    Don't be put off by the price on the NEC website, it is available for less than that. Its big (unique?) selling point is that it isn't a TN panel - I don't know about the others as I haven't specifically checked, but when I was researching, NEC were one of the few mfrs who specically state what the panel technology is.

    (I haven't bought it - yet - still feeding pennies into the piggy bank!)

    Re: Which 24" Monitor

    I've got the NEC MultiSync LCD1770NX atm so I know NEC do good monitors but I think I've been brain washed in love the Dell ones.

    24" LG L245WP = £444.14 from Scan




    24" Dell 2408WFP-HC = £440.50 from Scan

    there is a fancy, and at the same time understated style about dell monitors that is pretty much the best out there... that and the thin bezel's...

    i love my fujisiemens monitors, but if someone offered similar spec dell's id have to change

    Re: Which 24" Monitor

    The Dell 2407WFP-HC has been on the Custom PC magazine's list of 'Elite' components for a while now. They generally make sense (at least to me) and they certainly get to test more kit than most of us do.

    Re: Which 24" Monitor

    Does the Contrast Ratio make much difference? Is there much difference between 1000:1 and 3000:1?

    The Dell is winning atm because it's got more inputs and looks sexy as hell.

    After a lot of research and viewing I went for a 24" Samsung. But of the ones above the Dell is well rated.

    First was price as I only paid £225 and collected from PCW.
    All the reviews I read were very good accepting that there was a lot of debate about the panel. But I figured if it was not fit for purpose I would return it. So worth the try. I got it home and out of the box it was superb IMO. Great for games, reading on the net and movies. No regrets at all.

    Embarrassing note: DOH Mine is 22" you are after 24" sorry
