    I'd allways choose a Viewsonic over a Samsung or a BenQ.

    IMHO Viewsonic make some of the best moniters, I adore my VX922 and by Brothers VX2025.

    Just wondering, is TN running under Vista for you? I love this game but I can never get it to work with Vista..

    I'm not 100% sure, we're still running monitor reviews on Windows XP (as that's what all of our "work" computers are running in the office). :)

    Hm. While it sounds like a decent piece of kit overall, I think the Dell 2407 really pushes it out of the option running - unless, of course, you've had bad experiences with Dell and have therefore discounted them. The adjustability, card reader and USB hub are all extras in the 2407 that increase it's usefulness drastically. (Portrait mode is so useful sometimes!)

    I haven't tried it tbh, though I'd be willing to bet that is has something to do with the presence of StarForce in TN. Despite it being a free download the developers didn't see fit to remove it; there is an Vista update for StarForce if you're interested.

    The thing I don't like about this monitor is that it has an HDMI port, and I'd prefer it if display companies would start pushing the DisplayPort standard instead.
    Royalty fee FREE! = cheaper products.
    Higher bandwidth
    Runs on a lower voltage
    ...to name a few good points

    The other thing I'd like to have seen in this monitor is an LED-backlit panel, but that's maybe asking for a bit too much.

    :hehe:

    Hardly. ;)

    Mostly office apps that have pages/tables deeper than they are wide. :)

    Yeah, it's still a little early for LED backlit displays but we're seeing them in some notebooks - with impressive results. As for DisplayPort, I know that one very prominent display manufacturer is developing displays using it in some interesting ways. That's as much as I can say. ;)

    What is a 9 in 2 card reader? I am probably being stupid, but surely it is stuck in one side of the screen so is one unit?

    Takes up 2 USB ports I believe.

    I'd prefer having a proper mega-compatible card reader on a cable on my desk that have one build into the side of my screen.

    I mean, who can be bothered to lean over and look at wierd angles when you want to put a memory card in!

    Having said that, I'd take basically any free 24" TFT any day of the week

    Ive always liked viewsonic, but I'm very happy with my benq. However I noticed the viewing angles aren't as good as they could be. Especially compared to my friends 23inch apple display. But that thing has horrible contrast anyways...

    interesting you say that busterboo, as BenQ quotes a 176° viewing angle... I can't remember how good it was when we looked at it, but I'm surprised you've said that. :)

    Well, you can see the display from all angles, but if you look at it on the side the contrast looks far worse then looking straight on. My friends apple 23inch looks the exact same from all angles.

    Ah right, I've definitely seen that on quite a few monitors... claiming really great viewing angles, but neglecting poor contrast ratios at extreme angles. :)

    Read this review nearly 3 weeks ago on Trustedreviews site. Don't know if that site is a sister site but same review on 2 sites = poor show.

    They are sister sites, but previously Bit would simply link to TR rather than copy their entire article wholesale. Bit crappy really, but thats what happens when a good enthusiast site goes commercial :(

    Anyway I'd rather have this over the Viewsonic, Samsung, Dell and BenQ (now Qisda :wallbash: ) ;)

    I think that's kind of harsh considering the content we've now been providing after being "commercial". And the fact that we still aren't as bad as many other sites when it comes to having advertising everywhere etc.

    It was a Sunday afternoon review and not everyone at bit-tech reads a TR review. We felt it was applicable and decided to republish it for those who hadn't seen it, that's all. :)

    TR do mostly monitors, although we have a new "gaming" one in from Asus which bit will specifically do in the near future.

    It's a point taken, but it's also something we don't do very often, and as you know we only ever do stuff we think you guys should read/would like to read.
