Summary: Consumers who long for a large, 24-inch canvas for work and play should definitely give the Dell ST2420L a look. At $239, it offers fairly good image quality for the price. The $239, 24-inch Acer S243HL offers a crisper image, but doesn't match the Dell's color accuracy. Ultimately, we prefer the $269, 23-inch Samsung SyncMaster B2330HD (and its 24-inch counterpart, the $289 B2430HD) due to its superior picture and integrated TV tuner.
Pros: Good color depth, Wide viewing angles with antiglare coating, Robust adjustment and optimization options
Cons: Connectors difficult to access, Small fonts aren't very crisp, Sound bar costs extra
