Go look at the review on TFT Central, it's really worth the read and I highly suggest you use their recommended calibrated settings and ICC profile. Sure it cannot compete with the smoothness of a 120Hz + Lightboost monitor for fast First Person Shooters but it will blow away the colors and angle of any TN pannel, hell it even beat any IPS screen. VA pannel use to be slow and have major input lag for gaming but this one is the very first one that is ultra fast, among the best in the 60Hz category. At the price on sale, everybody should jump on this monitor, it's a real jewel unknown to most people who keep buying overpriced Asus stuff just because of the big name.
Arrived with solid packaging, opened it up everything was wrapped in a layer of plastic to protect from scratches. Base was easy to put together (just snaps in place). fits together securely, nothing that seems like it will wiggle loose, easy to disassemble as well.
Was hoping for the ability to set up in portrait, but no big loss that it can't I wouldn't have used that function very often any way.
Well, it's a good bang for buck monitor. MVA panel is generally supposed to be better than TN, except the tech apparently was "lagging" behind in the past years. I read the review in tft central (http://www.tftcentral.co.uk/reviews/content/benq_gw2450hm.htm#input_lag) and according to the numbers this mva screen does a great job. I had to use the premium option under the AMA option to reduce the ghosting and lagging, but it as still slightly noticeable. My LG 19 inch lcd from 2007 for whatever reason had 0 input lag whatsoever. I wish it was larger then i wouldn't even bother buying a new one. Well after about 6 weeks, the AMA overdrive option "died" no longer works and I have massive input lag again. Currently RMA'ed it and waiting to see what happens. Honestly, invest in a higher quality TN panel, unless you really what those dark blacks and deep colors. MVA panels are still way behind in technology when it comes to gaming. If you want this monitor for movies, and causal home use, go for it. I personally would not buy if gaming.
Bought this monitor to go with a build I put together for a family member. They really enjoy it. It's no IPS panel, but the colours look pretty good to be honest. The price was right when I bought it. The speakers are weak but ok for watching youtube videos.
I waited for Black Friday to buy this, I saw it at 149.99 at one point and I should have picked it up then, Black Friday was 159.99. In any case, great price for what you get, an MVA panel 24" monitory at 1080p for 160 bucks? Can't complain though I do have beef with the 11 dollar environmental recycling fee...Hope the province ends that racket. Be sure to test your monitor after you get it.

I'm thrilled with the display. Good monitor. No ghosting. Good colours. Good price. Only downside is the auto adjusting brightness which almost makes this a terrible monitor. Very strange, but for desktop use no problems. 99.9% of the time gaming you won't notice.
