A few years ago, Apple made white the new black in technology. One area where this colour can be difficult to find is in the mid-range 24in monitor sector. Well, fear no longer, you can now get an affordable and fully featured white and silver Full HD display to go with that Asus Eee Box or new Mac Mini, courtesy of BenQ’s M2400HD.


The last 24in display from BenQ we reviewed, the V2400W, managed to snag a recommended award thanks to its eye-catching styling and decent image quality. This new model might not look as stunning, but it’s by no means unattractive, and you do get more for less money – aside from the panel, which is a 16:9 (1,920 x 1,080) affair. This is the ideal aspect ratio for high definition video and console content though.


The M2400HD comes in two separate parts, the screen with stand and its heavy, metal-enforced base. The two click together smoothly and are also far easier to dismantle unlike many other monitors. Unfortunately, as with most budget TN monitors, there isn’t much manoeuvrability on offer, apart from a generous 25 degrees of easily adjustable tilt. When adjusting the screen you are also reminded of the M2400HD’s slightly sub-par build quality. For instance, there is more creaking than I’d like when moving the screen and the silver surround running along the bottom seems like it might snap off if it hits something.


Regardless of feel, however, the M2400HD definitely doesn’t look like a cheap display. The screen features a slim (2.5cm) and uncluttered glossy white bezel with a silver surround that’s broad at the bottom. Inside this is nestled the power button with a large green LED. While not unattractive, I would liked to have seen a more subtly integrated touch button instead. Physical buttons also make up the menu controls and are nicely integrated into the aforementioned surround with their functions clearly marked on the front of the bezel.
