Conclusion: The BenQ G2400W is a great monitor at a reasonable price. Supporting the most popular types of data connections, HDMI and DVI, this monitor should be able to take you quite a while into the future. Also, if you own an older computer that doesn't have a digital monitor connection, you can still use this monitor with its VGA connection.
Pros: 1920x1200 resolution (more viewing area then "Full HD"), Small bezel, Only has a small, dim power LED on the front bezel, Has VGA, DVI, and HDMI in, Has 1/8"th TRS out (for HDMI audio), Low price
Cons: Not the most stable stand in the world, Dim when brightness under 90, OSD control buttons are poorly labeled
Excerpt: BenQ has built up a reputation as a maker of budget-friendly displays that don't compromise on quality. And the relatively cheap BenQ G2400W impressed us in a number of respects – notably its gaming performance and range of ports.
Conclusion: Despite its relatively mainstream-class specifications, the BenQ G2400W holds up surprisingly well in our tests. We were frankly surprised by its flexibility for the various scenarios in which we tested it. As a monitor for office needs, its low cost, simple design and good overall performance will appeal. For gaming needs, the HDMI port allows for easy interfacing with the third generation consoles and high-definition movie watching from set-top players.
Excerpt: Производители плоскопанельных мониторов как по команде начали выпускать на рынок бюджетные модели диагональю 20 и более дюймов. При этом характеристики таких «бюджетников» - кот в мешке. Неизвестно, как далеко зайдет желание производителя сэкономить и удастся ли соблюсти баланс потребительских качеств и цены в конечном продукте.
