    So i think i'm going to RMA the G2420HDBL (LED) of mine. The center of the screen is darker than the sides, especially the top left corner. Unacceptable.

    Please, tell us if your new benq has the same issues.

    *SSSIIIIIIIIIIIIGGGHHHHH*

    So i got the replacement monitor, but it's the G2420HD not HDBL (LED)... However, the picture is MUCH better. So i may just not tell them about it and carry one as i am.

    Well the Non-LED version is actually really good. The backlight is even across the screen apart from the tiniest bit of bleed at the top when the brightness is high.
    The colours are great and the image is really sharp. Overall i'm extremely impressed, espeically for the price.

    The LED version however, the backlight was all over the shop and patchy. The strange warmness of the top left corner was the most annoying part. But you do get very dark blacks.
    Can't really go on the LED version i had because i ended up sending it back as faulty, as it cleary was. So because of that i'll have to say the G2420HD was the better of the two.

    Anyone else finding ghosting on light backgrounds? Any ideas on how to get rid or improve the ghosting in anyway?

    Waaaayy too sharp and bright on those settings. If anything it makes it worse.

    I'm really tempted to go back to my 26" iiyama 1920x1200 and keep this 24" BenQ as my LAN monitor because it weighs next to nothing.

    Confirm Size G2420HDBL

    Hi Folks, First post be gentle :)

    Looking to purchase two of G2420HDBL. I plan to mount them on the wall under some kitchen cabinets (have a 22" mounted already) so space is restrictive.

    The BenQ website does show a size: With Wall Mount: 348.42 x 570 x 63.26 mm

    Could someone be as kind just to conform that H 348.42 x W 570 with a tape measure that that size quoted is the edge of the bezel rather than the screen size. I'm guessing it is but as space is tight I really need to make sure.

    Thanks in advance.
    Richard

    The dimensions should be correct as i was interested also before purchasing for my desk mounts. However, I will confirm this for you when i get home this evening. Watch this space.

    I just bought this monitor 3 days ago.

    Its nice, but needs a lot of tweaking to get a comfortable IQ.

    Im going to try some of people suggestions for settings above.

    Blimey, thought this would be discontinued by now. Glad to see such a busy thread. Been enjoying my BenQ 2420HDBL for well over a year now with no problems, I don't think there is even 1 dead pixel either. Haven't calibrated it yet, but I'm colourblind so whatever. :p
