This 24-inch monitor may have a more standard Full HD 1920x1080 resolution and a utilitarian design featuring push buttons, but it’s brilliant for the money, with excellent colour reproduction. We were awed by its performance, and loved its ability to tilt and swivel. The input selection is terrific, with HDMI, DisplayPort, DVI and even VGA. There are also four USB ports. What’s more, the package includes a calibration hood plus Spyder4 Express Calibrator (it is pre-calibrated, too). You’ll be hard pressed to get such a brilliant, high-end display for this money.
Pros: Great clarity and colours with calibration tools, too.
Cons: Screen size is the only reason why you wouldn’t buy it.
We say: Our value choice; we loved the Asus’ performance.
The clarity of text on this display is remarkable, even when you’re looking at small text on web pages
