Excerpt: Thin and light, the BenQ GL2450 doesn’t take much space on a desk — but despite its svelte profile, it offers quite a bit to see when it comes to your favorite games. If you live in tight quarters, you’ll appreciate how well this particular monitor pulls double duty: thanks to its built-in speakers, it easily functions as a TV for your 360 while also serving as a display for your computer.
Pros: +, +
Cons: ? When will 27” monitors drop into the low-to-mid $200 range?
Excerpt: BenQ's GL2450 is a decent, no-nonsense monitor at a very affordable price. Based on a somewhat old-school design aesthetic, its classic black-picture-frame-on-a-stand look features a thick raised bezel incorporating a column of physical control buttons down the right hand side.
