Hey all,

I’m looking for something with good colour and contrast quality for photo/video editing, while also being fast enough to handle some gaming.

A 24” 1080p IPS panel seems like a good match for my needs and budget. I’d also like it to have VGA, DVI and HDMI ports, as well as a sturdy, height-adjustable stand.

Here are my top picks:

Acer CB241HY
https://www.acer.com/ac/en/AU/content/model/UM.QB1SA.003

Asus BE249QLB
https://www.asus.com/Monitors/BE249QLB/specifications/

They seem well matched in terms of price and features, and both come with a 3 year warranty.

The only significant differences I spotted are that the Acer has a faster response time of 4ms, compared to 5ms for the Asus.

The Asus also uses something called ‘ASUS Smart Contrast Ratio’, which seems to mean that the actual dynamic contrast of the monitor is 80,000,000, which is then somehow boosted to 100,000,000.

I’d love to hear any advice you might have.

Cheers!
