    LG's D2542P-PN is more suited to console playing and movie watching when in 3D mode, but as a straight monitor there's much better value to be had elsewhere. 2

  • Apple Thunderbolt Display

    The lack of native PC support is still a disappointment. That said, the stellar performance and added connection features, including Ethernet and Thunderbolt, make it a powerful and functional monitor for users of Thunderbolt-enabled Macs.

  • BenQ XL2410T

    CNET Rating8.5

    BenQ's XL2410T is excellent value, especially considering it runs at 120Hz. With silky smooth frame rates, low response time and guaranteed zero input lag, this is a great gaming monitor. If you're in a colour critical environment though, you should look elsewhere, preferably for something with an IPS screen. 1

  • Asus PA246

    At AU$699, the PA246 offers great value. We're concerned, though, by the colour shift in the inversion pixel walk test in some colour presets.

  • Acer S273HL

    CNET Rating6.5

    For AU$599, it's hard to be too unkind to the S273HL. Still, for a little more you could get the far superior U2711 — it all depends on your wallet.

  • Dell ST2220T

    CNET Rating7.0

    The ST2220T is certainly passable as a touchscreen monitor, with the IPS screen going a long way to increasing its appeal. Some poor design choices hold it back from greatness, though, and unless you have a burning desire for a touchscreen, you should be investing your money in a normal monitor.

  • BenQ BL2400PT

    CNET Rating8.0

    In the BenQ BL2400PT you get a VA-based monitor with a heck of a lot of vertical adjustability, deep blacks and a great warranty. 2

  • ViewSonic VX2739wm

    ViewSonic VX2739wm

    CNET Rating7.0

    At AU$599, the VX2739wm epitomises the "cheap and cheerful" category. It's definitely not a performance leader, but it does provide a huge, full HD monitor for an incredibly cheap price. We'd wager many people would be happy with that.

  • Dell UltraSharp U3011

    Dell's new 30-incher is amazing, delivering excellent performance and great colour control. The price will stop most though — this monitor is only for the truly serious. 14

    Considering its price, no one has an excuse any more to buy a second-rate TN panel. While it hasn't been given the same attention to detail in colour accuracy as the 2209WA or the U2711, the U2311H makes for a compelling buy if you want affordable 1080p. 6
