3.0 out of 5 stars Good value., 26 Jan. 2014

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: BenQ GL2450HM LED TN 24 inch Widescreen Multimedia Monitor (1920 x 1080, 2 ms GTG, VGA, DVI-D, HDMI, Speakers) - Glossy Black (Accessory)
Not bad for the price you pay. not as good as the 10 year old lg it replaced as it lacks the clarity and natural colours of that old (fairly ordinary) monitor.

Took a lot of tedious tweaking using the annoying menu to get it looking good but now ok. Looks great with high colour photos. Built in speakers are somewhere between a tablet and clock radio but suprisingly useful for youtube etc (as the hdmi carries the sound as well)

Dont forget to enable the auto hdmi switch setting in the menu as otherwise it may not swtich when you expect .

pros
big, cheap
speakers
hdmi very useful as it carries sound as well
looks very good with high colour photos
much better than an awful LG I had from high street catalogue people, much wider viewing angle before colours go pear shaped.

cons
awkward menus
takes tweaking to get colours looking good
text doesnt look quite as sharp as the old LG I had, my laptops or my work Lenovo. Still I dont really notice it now.

Can I ask, does this have a 'matt' effect screen? I'm looking for an affordable monitor that isn't reflective glass as I've got eyesight problems with them. I'd love your opinion on this.

Its definitely at the matt end compared with my other screens. I use in bright room and haven't noticed any issues. Strangely the thing that made the most difference in day to day use was the monitor arm I bought from Amazon for about £25 allows you to get angle ,height and distance spot on.

Thanks very much for the feedback, Bob, and the tip about the monitor arm.
