Philips 245C5QHAB

Matte and not overclock-able; Picture. I reviewed it but was too lazy to create a review. It has essentially perfect preset color accuracy, negligible input lag and competitive pixel response times when the overdrive is set to the second Smart Response (Fast) setting. My measurements are compared to multiple other 24-25" 1080p IPS/PLS in my HP 24 Envy Review here.

Accurate, semi-wide gamut 1920x1080 PLS with Displayport, HDMI and VGA.


Philips 246E74QDSW

Matte.  Review by Hardware Info and MeasurementsReview by Playwares

The 246E7QDSW has great preset color accuracy, excellent gaming performance, is competitively priced and has an improved fake frame-less casing with a thinner, but still perceived black depth decreasing inner black bezel.


Philips 257E7QDSB

Matte. Review by Playwares. Increase the overdrive, or change the Smart Response setting from Off to Fast to speed up the pixel response times without overshoot ghosting.

LG 24MP59G

Review by Rtings

The LG uses a matte 1080p IPS panel with a perceived black depth glossy black bezel, an inner black bezel, Displayport, HDMI, VGA, 40-75hz AMD free-Sync (DP & HDMI), 75hz back-light strobing (Motion Blur Reduction or MBR) and 3.5mm Audio Out.  It suffers from an obvious preset red tint, but has failry accurate gamma and average sRGB color space coverage which peaks at 93%.

LG 24MK600

Measurements and Review by Belgium Hardware

Matte 1080p IPS with AMD Free-Sync (48-75hz range), a perceived black depth decreasing fake bezel/frame-less black bezel, 2x HDMI, 1x VGA and a 3.5mm Audio Out.  The 600 is significantly more accurate than the 430 which has very low preset gamma (1.8 average), which causes colors and shades to look very dull and washed out.

Review by PRAD

Fully adjustable matte 1920x1080 IPS with a perceived black depth increasing matte grey bezel,  Displayport, HDMI, 4x USB 2.0 (side, 2x USB 3.0 (back() and 3.5mm Audio Out & Microphone In (side).  The LG is fairly accurate, but can't fully cover the sRGB color space (90% out of the box versus 95% for the best 24-25" IPS/PLS) and has slightly too low preset gamma.

HP

HP 25CW

Almost-Glossy. It's the same as the 25XW aside from the back casing.


HP 25XW

Almost-Glossy and overclock-able to 75hz.  Review by NCX (archived version). 


HP 25er

Almost Glossy; it's the same as the 25es, but the back of the case is black. Review by NCX

Almost Glossy; it's the same as the 25er, but the back of the case is white.  Review by NCX


HP 24 Envy

Almost-Glossy with native 75hz and AMD Free-Sync.  Review by NCX

The 24 Envy has slightly less accurate preset gamma (2.3 average) than the 25er/es and 27XW, which results very minor black crush of dark colors and shades, and minor over-saturation of some light shades.  The 24 Envy also has slightlyhigher sRGB color space coverage resulting in slightly more vibrant colors than most 1080p IPS/PLS panels after calibration. The 24 Envy does not need to have its contrast reduced from 80 to 75 like the 25-27 CW/er/es/XW. Set the Overdrive (Response Time Setting under Image Control) to Level 2 (Fast).

The coating the 24 Envy uses is also slightly different; the coating is a mix between an almost-glossy and semi-glossy coating.  Under bright lighting the 24 Envy looks a bit washed out compared to the 25-27 CW/er/es/XW monitors, but is also slightly less reflective.


HP 25f

Review by NCX

Fairly accurate 1920x1080 almost-glossy or low haze coated LG AH-IPS with AMD Free-Sync, native 75hz, 2x HDMI and 1x VGA.

The HP 25f offers a few improvements over the older models which are the inclusion of AMD Free-Sync, a native 75hz refresh rate, properly preset contrast (no need to drop the contrast from 80 to 75), faster pixel response times (Response Time Level 4) and vastly higher maximum brightness which makes the 25f suitable for use in very brightly lit environments.  Overall the 25f is slightly less accurate than the 25er and 25es monitors I tested in 2016, has a less accurate color gamut which prevents it from being able to display some colors as accurately as the older models, and the 25f I tested suffered from very obvious back-light bleed in the bottom left corner.

Dell P2417H

Review by Daywalker
Review by Rtings

Matte with height adjustable stand and USB ports.

Low glow panel with less vibrant and accurate colors than some newer competitors since it can only cover around 90% of the sRGB color space. Owners have also reported that it suffers from obvious overshoot ghosting on certain transitions (purple overshoot on white & grey background), and but Dell is in denial or does not seem interested in the issue according to user interactions with Dell Customer Service on their forums.

Dell U2417HWI

Matte with height adjustable stand and USB ports.

Review by Alexander Gryzhin (=DEAD=)

The HWI uses an 8 bit Samsung LTM238HL01 PLS panel which can only cover 88-90% of the sRGB color space while many of the newer 2016 panels can cover >93-100% of the sRGB color space which means that they can display colors more accurately and vibrantly.

Review by TFT Central

The U2417HA [Samsung LTM238HL04 PLS; not sure about the bit depth since different claims (6 bit +FRC vs 8 bit) exist] has an extended color space and better image quality than most 1080p IPS/PLS along with the 25" panels, LG 24MP68VQ-P and Philips 245C5QHAB, but it uses a PLS panel with a stronger matte coating than competing IPS panels. The unit PRAD and TFT Central (before revision change) both have around a frame of input lag.


Dell S2418H

Semi-glossy (same coating as the HP 24 Envy which looks washed out under bright lighting) with 24-75hz AMD Free-Sync.  Review by Alexander Gryzhin (=DEAD=)


Dell S2419H

Semi-Glossy 6 bit +FRC LG AH-IPS panel with excellent preset color accuracy and gaming performance (balanced overdrive and negligible input lag) for a 60hz AHVA/IPS/PLS panel.  It is not VESA compliant, does not support Free-Sync, and suffers from very obvious interlaced artifacts when overclocked above 60hz (71hz=max without frame skipping):

Quote from: PC Monitors
Some models display static interlace patterns, not linked to motion and observed when the monitor is simply displaying a static image as well. Some shades may appear as faint horizontal bands of a slightly lighter and slightly darker version of the intended shade. We did observe static interlace patterns on this model, with some light and medium blue, yellow and orange shades in particular showing this. The horizontal bands were reasonably faint and not everyone would notice or find them bothersome. Curiously, if you reduced the refresh rate to 50Hz they became even more faint. Increasing the refresh rate much beyond 60Hz (refer to a note on ‘overclocking’ in the next section) made these extremely obvious.

Review by IT Hardware PL (Set gamma to 4)
Review by Les Numeriques (gamma 1)

Matte 1920x1080 IPS with Displayport, HDMI, VGA and 3.5mm Audio In & Out.  It's fairly accurate but has low sRGB color space coverage compared to the best options, and has high preset gamma which averages around 2.4, but can be improved by changing the Gamma.


BenQ BL2480T

Review by PRAD

Matte 1920x1080 IPS with Displayport, HDMI, VGA and a height adjustable stand.  It's fairly accurate but has high preset gamma which averages around 2.4 and can only cover up to 92% of the sRGB color space which is a bit below average for a budget 1080p IPS/PLS monitor.

AOC 24V2Q

Review by Playwares

Matte 1080p LG AH-IPS with AMD Free-Sync and native 75hz.  The AOC suffers from high preset gamma (>2.53 average out of the box) which causes black crush (loss of detail with dark colors and shades, as well as color and shade dulling), but the gamma can be reduced by setting the Gamma to Mode to for 2.24 average gamma.

AOC 24B1

Review by Playwares

Matte 1920x1080 LG AH-IPS with HDMI and VGA, fairly accurate color presets, typical 60hz gaming performance (negligible or <3ms lag and balanced overdrive with no overshoot) and barely average contrast under 800:1.

Acer RT240Ybmid

Measurements and Review by Belgium Hardware

The RT240Ybmid uses an accurate matte panel which can cover 94% of the sRGB color space out of the box which is a great but not outstanding result, and it has fast pixel response times and mostly accurate color presets aside from the gamma which is a little low.

Best Matte Monitors


The AOC i2490PXQU, AOC 24V2Q (48-75hz AMD Free-Sync; set gamma to mode 2 to prevent black crush), Asus VZ249H (set the overdrive or Trace Free setting to 20 to eliminate overshoot ghosting), Dell U2417HA (it has better image quality but slightly more overshoot ghosting than the U2414H, HP, LG and Philips monitors), Dell U2417J, Eizo EV2451,  LG 24MP68VQ-P  (48-75hz AMD Free-Sync), iiyama XUB2492HSU-B,1 Philips 246E7QDSW and Philips 257E7QDSB are the best matte options.

In order of best to least best of the best (based on Belgium Hardware and/or other reviews if possible), the Eizo EV2451, Philips 257E7QDSB (set Smart Response from Off to Fast for the best gaming or overdrive performance), Philips 246E7QDSW (better gamma accuracy vs AOC),  AOC i249PXQU (better RGB levels versus the 246E7, but slight black crush inducing gamma which is too high) and iiyama XUB2492HSU-B1 offer the best image quality of the bunch along with the Dell U2417HA, but the Eizo and Dell can cost significantly more in some countries.

Best Glossy Monitors

The semi-glossy Dell S2418H (75hz with AMD Free-Sync), almost-glossy/Low Haze coated Dell S2419H*, HP 25er/25es (non-overclock-able 2016 models; they're the same aside from the casing color), 25CW/25XW (2015 models; they're the same aside from the casing color), HP 25f (75hz & AMD Free-Sync) and semi-glossy HP 24 Envy (75hz with AMD Free-Sync) are the best glossy monitors.  The HP 25er/es are slightly more accurate than the CW/F/XW monitors, but the er/es monitors can't overclock, and their contrast, along with the 25-27 CW/XW monitors needs to be turned down to 75 from 80 to get rid of the green tint when viewing light grey shades such as those found in the Lagom White Saturation Test.

The HP 25f offers a few improvements over the older models which are the inclusion of AMD Free-Sync, a native 75hz refresh rate, properly preset contrast (no need to drop the contrast from 80 to 75), faster pixel response times (Response Time Level 4) and vastly higher maximum brightness which makes the 25f suitable for use in very brightly lit environments.  Overall the 25f is slightly less accurate than the 25er and 25es monitors I tested in 2016, has a less accurate color gamut which prevents it from being able to display some colors as accurately as the older models, and the 25f I tested suffered from very obvious back-light bleed in the bottom left corner.

The Dell S2418H, S2419H and HP 24 Envy use a semi-glossy coating which looks a bit washed out under bright lighting, and is best used with bias lighting, or lights placed behind the display*.  The HP comes with a VESA adapter, and has slightly better image quality (full sRGB color space coverage >99% vs 93-94% for the Dell) than the Dell S2418 and HP 25f.
