    It's a fair comment that you can't adjust the stand but other than that it's a great monitor

    I've had the Benq for about a year now. Gives fantastic gaming performance for the money and would definitely recommend it :smashin:

    Are you after an LCD or LED backlit LCD? :eek:

    Or is that irrelevant, and you just want a decent monitor?

    tbh I want a new monitor, ive been running a 19" 4:3 screen since ive had a computer and have needed to get a decent one for a long time.

    I was searching for one that had VGA-DVI and HDMI inputs (HDMI wasnt a deal breaker but it would have been nice).

    Backlit does not bother me too much I just want a decent monitor but since local PCWorld ironically lack any decent monitor makes I have to buy online so want to be careful in my selection :)

    yup crazy how cheap those are, I guess acer must have discontinued them. Every competing product is over twice the price.
