Summary: This monitor arrived quickly on free delivery, a good start. Was undamaged, well packed and had no faulty pixels. I needed to add a DVI cable (came with a VGA) and update the driver software for my video card, when this was completed, really sharp at recommended resolution with good colours, that can be tweaked if required. All gloss plastic surfaces had thin film on when unpacked so no scratches and looked smart with stand,tilts easily for viewing angle.
Summary: Pros: Connecting with RGB lead to compact computer running xp Full Hd 16:9 aspect very wide screen. using monitor for looking at drawings and spreadsheets. Surberb matt finish anti glare screen, good overall colour balance and very sharp picture. using monitor on default settings in xp 1920 x 1080 anything less causes less picture quality. Very old graphics cards would be a no.
Summary: I was a little hesitant about this purchase as it was so cheap, but i needn't have worried. It was easy to set up straight out of the box, needed zero adjustments and did just what it says on the tin. I'm not into gaming or watching dvd's on my pc so i cant't comment on how well this monitor performs in those areas, but as a day to day work horse it is perfect.
A nice computer monitor but hard to calibrate and poor connections

Summary: I bought the BenQ G2420HDBL 24-inch Widescreen LED Back-Light Monitor (Full-HD, DVI-D, 5ms,Glossy Black, 5million:1DCR, Vista Premium, Senseye and Photo Technology)and was a surprise by the price and the result is great. But I found that it's hard to calibrate and the presets are useless so you have to spend some time trying to achieve a better quality result of your monitor.
Summary: The monitor was securely packed, and arrived with clear instructions. Vast improvement on my previous monitor and so easy to set up with windows 7. Size is perfect for a smallish work area. Makes viewing photographs a pleasure as the colours look really good.
Summary: I am a gamer. I searched for comments telling how this monitor behaved in games, maybe you are searching that too. In that case rest assured that this is a indeed a gaming monitor. To be short: PROs: - Cheap - No ghosting - Good in general for gaming, movies and browsing - No problems with text, it is crystal clear. - Menu easy to use Cons: - default image mode is not good, colors are washed off. Use Movie preset instead !
Summary: I wanted an additional large monitor for viewing financial trading charts, so I could display four on one screen. This monitor is bright with astonishing crispness and clarity. It weighs very little, and so was easy to handle and install into it's base and I'm very pleased with it. I connected it via a USB display adapter which is also an excellent product USB To VGA/DVI/HDMI Multi-Display Adapter Converter,USB 2.0 to DVI , VGA or HDMI Adapter * NEW * 1080p Full HD ready...

Summary: Bloody awesome. I got this monitor to play xbox 360 on and to watch blu rays eventually with my PC. The bad reviews did get me slightly worried but I'm glad I ignored them and went for it anyway. For the price, it's actually incredible. I've been using it for a couple of hours now and it turned on perfectly with windows 7 64 bit, haven't downloaded any drivers yet but I don't think I need to anyway at the moment, and it was very easy to get the screen to auto adjust...
