Now that I've gotten those two 19-inchers out of the way we can delve into something a little meatier. Five inches meatier to be exact.
OK, if the aforementioned blog is anything to go by, I should be pretty excited about the Dell S2409W and the BenQ E2400HD, both being larger monitors. Well, I am and I'm not.
The two 19-inchers can be found for as low as $300 online. Also, their relative performance was impressive for the price, especially on the Dell. So yeah, that's something to be excited about: two well-performing 24-inchers for $300.
So far so good, and for many this is good enough. But I like my options. In particular, connection options and ergonomic options. Each has VGA, DVI and HDMI, but are missing component, S-video, or DisplayPort future-proofing.
Also, if you're into screen pivoting, screen height adjustment, or screen rotation, you won't find that here.
