BenQ has released a very Mac looking, white, ultrathin, narrow bezel, 24” monitor that would suit any minimalist, Zen styled home or office.

The BenQ VW2430H is a new model based on a next generation 1920x1080, 16:9 widescreen, VA (vertical alignment) LED screen.

VA is flicker-free, has a wider viewing angle – typically 178 degrees all round so it is great for multi-monitor setups, has 8 bit colour, has more contrast (5000:1) and brightness (250cd/m2). It also has true blacks and less pixel light leakage.

It has VGA D-sub, HDMI and DVI inputs and a headphone jack (that works if you use HDMI input).

It has a minimalist design – clean, round lines, a lime green smartphone or cardholder in the base – no speakers or USB hub. That is it really.

I like the reading mode where the screen can take on a paperback book-like look.

RRP is $299 which is good value. BenQ have a traditional dealer network that often sees prices up to 20%, and OfficeWorks have it for $244.

Rating:

Design: 9-10
Specifications: 8-10 – minimalist but that is by design
Quality: 9-10
Value: 9-10 (even better if you get it for $244 or less)
