BenQ GL2450 review

 

The GL2450 is a basic monitor, but it provides accurate colours but lacks style and HDMI inputs

BenQ GL2450 review

 

Its 24in diagonal makes is physically the largest display of the group and thereby gives it slightly larger pixels. The use of a low-cost TN panel means rather restricted viewing angles which are immediately apparent as soon as you tilt the monitor or...

The BenQ GL2450 features a cheap TN panel with restricted viewing angles and offers no audio support. However it has a large screen size, a fast response time, solid build-quality and excellent value for money if all you need is a basic display.

This is the best cheap 24-inch monitor you can buy right now

Very good backlight consistency ; Easy to setup ; Good image quality for the price ; Good for gaming

No HDMI ; Limited adjustments

The BenQ GL2450 is a better monitor than £100 ought to buy you. It's a great bargain.

Good clear image. Easy to set up. Adjustable stand.

Not a big point, but it would have been nice to have some USB ports.

BenQ GL2450HT

 

3 inputs. Being able to change between landscape and portrait orientation.

I use this as a second screen with a laptop-tablet with only HDMI output. On first connection I could not get past "No cable connected," and the Quick Start guide did not help. I examined the CD documentation and eventually found that Enter brings up...

Good, budget monitor

 

I recently purchased this monitor to game on for a low cost of £95 and to be honest I really wasn't dissapointed. However there were also some things I wanted to change, but I will get onto them. The monitor itself is 24 inches and has a full HD...

Good price, good display

Dust prone, thick border, large stand

BenQ GL2450HT

 

The height adjust and the rotatable screen are potentially great features. Really bright screen, lovely to read, even though facing large South facing window on a sunny day, 3 metres behind me.

Buttons on frame edge not intuitive to operate and there seems no clear button guidance on the printed material enclosed.
