BenQ is attempting to lead the way in the LED display revolution, having just launched a 24-inch LED widescreen display as well as “the world’s first” 21.5-inch LED widescreen display. Both the V2400 Eco and the V2200 Eco support full HD 1080p and offer an ultra-high dynamic contrast ratio of 5 million:1 for intense blacks and extreme whites. The monitors also promise to use less energy, boasting an Eco mode that uses 30% less power. Both new monitors will be available worldwide eventually, though China will be the first country to get them starting mid-August. BenQ Leads the Charge in LED Revolution... Read more...
The price of LCD screens has steadily declined and in the last few years, larger monitors are starting to become relatively affordable. This is especially evident in the 19", 20" and 22" categories, where we see a significant number of products in the sub-$300 range. However 24" and larger screens still remained premium products until very recently. In the last year or so we have seen the first 24" screens to dip below the $400 mark appear on the market. The products in this new category of value oriented 24" screens almost universally combine a large and cheap TN panel with a basic monitor housing... Read more...

LCD monitors were supposed to free up our precious desk real estate as they relegated bulky CRTs to the local landfill. But with the quantity and quality of high-definition content increasing and LCD prices continuing to drop, widescreen LCDs are becoming increasingly prevalent. Now our desks are filling up again--only this time in width, instead of depth. Still, for many, this is a small price to pay for the relatively large screen area and wide aspect ratio that these widescreen monitors offer.One such widescreen LCD monitor is Asus's MK241H 24-inch display, which sells for a manufacturer's suggested...

Dell’s lineup of flat panel displays have proven themselves to be reliable, stylish, and typically right on par price-wise with some of the most inexpensive LCD monitors on the market.

Sure, Dell displays don’t have the raw sexiness of Apple’s Cinema series... Read more...
We’re willing to bet that many of you have wildly varied opinions of Dell. Some no doubt consider them a huge, monolithic corporation who pushes out generic computers without a soul; while others consider them to be pioneers of the low-cost PC movement, who (almost) single-handedly made computers available to nearly every price point. No matter what your opinion of Dell as a company is, it is difficult to find many people in IT circles who dislike their monitor division.

However, in the last 8-10 months, LCD monitor production has increased and the price of LCD panels has fallen dramatically. The 20" screens which... Read more...
