This is without a doubt a stunning performer for the money. I have used 'Pro' CRT monitors with Photoshop for years. I have always been very wary of LCD monitors. They are a pig to calibrate properly (I use the Color Vision Spyder). This isn't my first LCD, but it is the best by a long shot. I am VERY fussy about colour temp, contrast and sharpness etc etc and for the money I will say that this monitor is a wonderful piece of kit.
A WORD OF WARNING THOUGH.
Most of you out there are most likely still using the standard VGA cable for connecting your monitor to your PC. Even if your Graphics card is pretty good, it is highly unlikely that the screen resolution setting on your PC is going to be able to take advantage (be increased enough) of this monitor if that card is more than a couple of years old. I have mine currently set to 1920x1080 and as such, takes full advantage of the monitor. BUT.....!!!!!!It should also be noted that a VGA cable is analogue and therefore isn't going to take advantage of this monitor. I went out and spent an extra £40 on a NVIDIA Graphics card that gives me an HDMI slot. So, please don't just connect it up to your PC using VGA. It isn't just about buying a BIG monitor......this thing can give you fantastic, pin sharp clarity if it is connected up properly and set to the best screen res.
The monitor has VGA, HDMI and DVI-D. An HDMI and DVI-D cable actually carry the same amount of data (only HDMI for the purpose of BluRay and TVs etc etc also carries audio) and so it doesn't really mater which you use.....BUT!!!!It is best that you 'Google' DVI cables first. One of the main reasons I upgraded my Graphics card was that I had to. I had a very good ATI card but it had DVI-I and VGA. Even the latest card I have bought doesn't have DVI-D. It has DVI-I.

Out of a choice of this 24" BenQ monitor and a similar but more expensive Asus one.. I'm defiantly glad I got this.
The screen resolution is superb and the quality of the product is outstanding. Don't be put off by the cheap price, just conciser it a bargain!

Pros :

* Sleek & thin rim around the screen makes screen look thinner, smarter and doesn't steal focus.
* Display is incredible. Wouldn't ask for more clarity on VGA if it was possible.
* HDMI input is amazing, playing though my Xbox 360 there was no loss in color, picture or sound. It truly does product a full 1080p output.

Cons :

* IT COMES WITH A EUROPEAN 2-PIN POWER SUPPLY! I can't stress this enough. I was so annoyed when I turned up to my house (UK). Thankfully, I had a same Voltage & Amp power supply from my friends old monitor.
* Its a little bit of an effort to keep plunging the audio jack lead from my speakers, to my computer and the monitor. The monitor doesn't have speak of its own so you have to use external speakers to hear your Xbox 360 using the Audio Jack on the side of the monitor.

So if your looking for a Sleek and clean 24" Full HD monitor. Then this is defiantly the one to get.

I have two of these on my desk in a multimonitor setup, and it's great!

Apart from having to twist my neck regularly to look at different areas of the screen, it's definitely something to look into if you can afford it. Productivity has skyrocketed because of it.

The screen's themselves are brilliant quality - no dead pixels, great contrast, no color bleed or similar, perfect brightness (for me) and no eyestrain or similar so far (about 2 weeks in).

I already had cables around for these so I'm not sure wether the stuff provided was useful - I seem to remember it being a VGA cable only (invest in HDMI or DVI-D) but really couldn't say about the kettle-cord.

pros. contrast ratio is unvbelievably good, has a very solid feel and clean, design... i use it with mac, and could list a number of reasons i've switched from the 23" inch apple cinema display, which is good.. but this is better! oh.. and the price is very reasonable!

cons. only comes with vga cable

I reluctantly bought this monitor as I had never connected my Macbook 13'3 black (2008) to any external monitor.

I bought the cables that were needed (both HDMI and VGA) and today my lovely monitor has arrived. Of course I'm highly excited but I will try to be objective.

Great packaging, I chose express delivery. No problems at all, no marks, the product is obviously new. Also, mine was shipped with a UK adaptor, not a EU like the other customers.

I tried to make an HDMI connection first. Make sure you read the instructions! My Macbook recognized the monitor without any problems. However, I got a "no input detected" from the Benq. When checking the help files, there were no instructions on how to connect the monitor to any MacOS. It has all Windows versions, but no mention whatsoever on the Macs. Hence the 4 stars.

On my final attempt I used the VGA cable. It all worked like a charm. Plug and play.

The quality is 4.5/5, the size is perfect for watching videos/TV or if you work many hours on a computer. If I solve the HDMI issue I will edit the review.

edit: After a couple of hours messing on the monitor, I found on its menu options the HDMI switch. Once I set it to "auto", I plugged in my Mac and it worked. You can see massive difference between using HDMI and VGA. I recommend HDMI for watching TV or movies. Amazing quality. Only drawback is that I haven't managed to make it work fullscreen, so I basically lose 2 inches. However, with VGA it fully works.
