Dell 104P6

Dell now offers three Ultra HD monitors for your consideration. We tested the 32-inch UP3214Q last month. Today, we're looking at the 24-inch UP2414Q. Despite its smaller size, this is still a $1000+ display. Can Dell make the trade-off worthwhile?

Benq EW2430

Usually VA panels have fairly slow response times, but BenQ has managed to make this monitor's response time much faster than typical VA panels.

At £130 for some decent specs, this monitor is so preposterously parsimonious, we're willing to forgive its flaws. The holy grail of the truly affordable IPS screen has arrived. It's not perfect, but that hardly matters.

The big question here is whether you want the 3D effect. If you do, then this is a compelling way of creating more depth to images and making more of an impact. The huge 27” screen space is generally excellent, aside from the build-quality issue...

Benq GW2250

The BenQ GW2250 is easily among the best LCD monitors we've ever tested under 23". The VA panel proves its superiority to its TN brethren and ensures excellent visual fidelity. Great ergonomics also add to this monitor's appeal. A definite must-buy for...

LG E2290

The LG Flatron E2290 looks beautiful and includes basic monitor features; however, for its price we expected something more than a pretty face.

Dell UltraSharp U2711

The Dell UltraSharp U2711 lives up to its name and displays an excellent array of colors. While it may have some trouble with the dark grays this monitor makes up for that in its numerous features and keeping a good track record, as far as Dell's go.

ViewSonic VP2365wb

Our DisplayMate test also revealed a serious pixel-tracking error. The monitor exhibited severe flickering while displaying the highest-intensity dithering pattern in that set of tests. We didn’t encounter this problem with any of the real-world...

Asus VX239H

The striking white finish of the Asus VX239H-W may appeal to many, especially if you'd like to use it in a kitchen or against a white wall. Its slim casing is solidly constructed and offers unique touch-sensitive controls. Image quality is among the...

Samsung S24D590PL

Custom lets you tweak things as you like; Standard provides a good basic setup that isn't too bright; Cinema mode is a horrid, over-sharpened mess best avoided; and Dynamic Contrast, in common with most such modes, is punctuated by irritating...

Not long ago, the thought of a budget monitor conjured up images of bland designs and cheap TN (twisted nematic) panels with oversaturated colors and poor viewing angles. Not anymore. The advent of inexpensive IPS technology has allowed manufacturers...

Benq XL2411Z

I don't know who the short sight goes to whether its BenQ or Newegg. You would really think by the year 2015 things would be checked by BenQ before they were sent off. I realize things get damaged in shipping but then maybe BenQ needs to fix their...

Benq GW2265HM

Viewing angles aside, the BenQ GW2265HM is one of the best budget VA monitors we've seen in recent months. It doesn’t have the greatest colour accuracy out of the box, but at this price we wouldn't expect it too. Its deep blacks and superb contrast...

Philips 278G4DHSD

This is probably the most feature-packed screen out at the moment, but it's nowhere near the best thanks to the compromises wrought by passive, polarised 3D. That experience of peering through slats to see the picture is not the ideal one for viewing,...

HP Pavilion 27xi

HP’s latest Pavilion 27xi monitor would look great on any executive’s desk. It’s thin, elegant, and takes up surprisingly little tabletop space for a 27-inch display.

AOC i2353Ph/Fh

When I reviewed the AOC e2243FW a while back I dubbed it the thinnest monitor to hit PC Labs. Now, the new AOC i2353Ph ($189 street) earns that distinction. With its splinter-thin cabinet and metallic trim, this 23-inch monitor oozes style. Moreover,...
