I have the LG L246WP-BN and it is amazing. It and the dell are the highest rated out there. Got mine on sale for $569.

That was last year, the sucker is running about $400 now. Holy crap.

I've bought over $60,000 worth of stuff from these guys for my business, have never had a problem. They are my favorite online vendor. A few blocks from ncix in Richmond.

All = TN Panels. For the Money you are WAY better off with the LG mentioned by Squeetard. It is a P-MVA panel which means much better colour reproduction.

EDIT:

Oooops my mistake, Squeetard those are not the same LG screens.
LG L246WP (widescreen) 24 8 ms (g2g) P-MVA (AUO M240UW01 V0) panel.
LG L246WH (widescreen) 24 5 ms TN panel.

The WP is a P-MVA not manufactured by LG, but that's ok doesn't mean anything. Thesecond is a TN that is manufactured by LG, so it is cheaper for a reason, it is not as good. ;)

I bought the G2400WD a few days ago.

Seems like all TN panels were not created equal. This is way better than my brothers LG TN panel, and yes the viewing angle is problematic at extremes but its really not bad either. Very deep rich black and white whites, colorful without being too bright or glaring. No ghosting or backlight bleed.

Unbelievable for a monitor that cost $353 in my mind. Basic stand but for the price I don't care.

From the link you provided, it says the LG is a 16:9 ratio screen yet the resolution is 16:10. That's gonna be distorted! Is it a typo or what's up with that?

I have the 2493hm that I got on sale at FS and I love it. I actually returned a Dell 2408wfp (or whatever) with a supposedly superior panel and I didn't like it at all. Way too bright and the backlight bleed was horrendous. The 2493hm has the lowest level of backlight bleed that I've seen so far. Mind you I haven't had the opportunity to check out the BenQ.

I have the 2408WFP and don't really notice backlight bleeding at all (lights off, dark scenes).

I have the brightness turned down a fair amount (45/100), though. It was ridiculously bright from factory. Brightness and Contrast were both set to 100. My retinas hurted ...

I must have had a defective monitor, I had the brightness set to 0 I think and it was still way too bright for me. But then again I'm a cave dweller:)
