I love the idea of this shape and size of monitor, but if it's possible could we get a review of the Dell S2409W please?

No 1:1 mode? That's disappointing for a BenQ.

For monitor reviews I'd love to see what you make of the 2209WA, it's definitely the most interesting monitor to have come out lately, being a 22" IPS for £200.

1:1 is used for outputting a smaller resolution on a higher resolution screen without streaching and is usually far more usefull on a 16:10 screen for 16:9 content such as a games console. therefore if you are looking for 1:1 for console gaming or another 16:9 content then there is no need for the 1:1 function as its already at the correct resolution.

Jay: True, although I believe most console games are supposed to output in 720p so unless the consoles themselves have good scaling you might want it for that anyway.

But it's a useful thing to have generally, I can name at least three recent PC games that are locked to one resolution and anyone messing around with Linux may be spending a lot of time in non-native resolutions trying to get their graphics drivers to work.

After reading a few great reviews online about the BenQ E2400HD I decided to go with my instincts and go with the purchase. I am amazed and grateful that I took the risk and purchased it online than buying it at the store, because it was cheaper online. The monitor has been working great for me so far. I play a lot of FPS and MMO’s or even games such as Starcraft (old school I know, haha) or Dota on Warcraft 3. I also initially looked into this monitor because it seemed to have it all, plus it offered DVI, D-Sub, and most importantly HDMI plug-ins.

Since I have both a PS3 and Xbox360, connectivity to the new 24” monitor that I was looking at was extremely crucial, because I wanted to get rid of my really old and crappy 15 inch tv that I used to play my Xbox on, I know its really sad. I mean my parents have a 40” + in the living room, but I don’t enjoy leaving my consoles out in the open as I have younger siblings that might destroy my treasures!

Anyway, the monitor performs with great presentation, it is extremely bright (the way I enjoy it), but of course you could tone it down for your own preference. It has high dynamic contrast ratio too, which some people claim it is a marketing scheme, but it still makes a small difference and it saves on energy consumption too, which is a nice thing! The monitor has 2ms, and I have not experienced any ghosting what so ever, which is great! Bottom line, this monitor is absolutely a splendid piece of work, price is low compared to its competitors, and it offers great specs which is the best bang for your every buck!
