Choosing a new 24" monitor

  jonesypeter 21:19 02 Sep 2013


I'm buying a new PC and looking at monitors. I'm not a great games player but do want that option. I mainly use Windows Apps and want the option to watch Blu-Rays.

I have looked at the 'Viewsonic VX2370Smh' which is reviewed on TechRadar:

Tech Radar Review

However not many retailers seem to sell it (I could only find Amazon). Is there any reason for this.
I keep looking at review and most get different reviews depending on what site you go to! My budget is around £150 and I am after a 16:9 or 16:10 Full HD IPS Panel Thanks Peter Jones

Although you state your budget is £150 for 50 quid more you can get one of the best monitors around. Dell Ultrasharp U2412M 24 inch IPS Widescreen. I have 2 24" and 1 27" and hopefully moving up to the 30".

They are superb quality with more connections than you could ever need. A fantastic customer service and warranty which is three years. Earlier this year my 27" decided that it would not accept a signal from the Display Port cable and I found out that the problem was not uncommon. I contacted Dell on the Monday by Thursday I had a replacement monitor with the faulty one being uplifted.

just thought I would throw this into the mix.

I have just put Viewsonic VX2370Smh into a Google search, and was redirected to Viewsonic VX2370 SMH-LED, which came up with a host of information, including some very well known names for retailers of this product, all on checking seem to have stocks available, at around about the £130.00 mark?.

There's even YouTube video on this model!.

I'm keen on the Ultrasharp U2412M 24 inch IPS Widescreen because it is 16:10, but is there any downside because it is quite old now.

I mainly use Office Apps and browse the web, but also watch HD Video, and play the occasional game.

My 24" is the 2010 version and still a fantastic monitor, other monitors have come and gone but it would take something special to move from the Dell. Incredibly I paid £450 for my 24" and the same for my 272 last year.

Just read the reviews and see what you think. Definite worth the £200.
