I am looking to replace my backup PC's monitor with some thing that fits on a desk in my room. I was looking at the BenQ T241W Black 24" 5ms because its on sale and according to the specs its really good. It $100 off right now.

I am not buying it unless you guys think its a really goods deal. I trust the opinion of the people that know the difference between panels. Because I don't. :laugh:

Go for it. I have a BenQ 19". Still going great even after 3 years. Occasional lockup with the power switch. Had to pull the power cord and plug it back in to get picture back. Don't know if its my Video card.

Good price. Tempting!

That looks like a great deal on a 24". A tad week in the brightness dept, but for that price I'd say definitely.
