Summary: I got this for my work desk a few days ago and absolutely love this monitor. It uses Backlit LED to light the display, with 16.7 million colors; the BenQ G920WL is much like the standard TN CCFL lit panels, however, comparing to my 3 month old Samsung 2494SW, the BenQ seems much brighter. Although both monitors have the same brightness and colors, the BenQ is the winner when it comes to the comparative brightness.
Excerpt: I had to choose a 19" monitor as it is the largest display that my desk will fit due to the way it is set up with a enclosing compartment for where the monitor is supposed to go. I was disappointed with not being able to purchase a 22" or 24" like most others, so I wanted to spend the extra dollars on getting the best 19" I could possibly find, in my budget. The G920WL was the coolest one I could find at the price I was willing to pay.
Great replacement - Save on the pocket and environment

Pros: Vibrancy of images, Uses less power than conventional screens, Price
Excerpt: I had been in need of an upgrade on a monitor for a while when I got this. In my office, I had an old viewsonic that hurt my eyes and looked awful. I started looking around and decided to wait for LED backlighting and I'm glad I did. My coworkers have a number of good monitors, notably the samsung 2033SW, LG 2043T, and Dell 1909W, and all of them are put to shame by the G920WL's picture. The contrast is fantastic, which makes the colors look great as well.
Excerpt: "...I'd heard good things about BenQ and I was curious about how LED backlighting would affect the picture quality. Over about the past month, I've slowly used my Dell less and less and THAT'S become my second monitor. I use monitors for many things: gaming, movies, and of course anything on my computer. My gaming (Xbox and computer gaming) and computing has all moved over to the G920WL. I do still watch movies on the ST2310 because it's 1080p, but I ...
