BenQ XL2420T

RH Numbers

Packed with a raft of specialist features, the 24in XL2420T is all about gaming. Its 2ms response time ensures that fast action shooters remain blur free and it supports Nvidia’s 3DVision technology when fitted with the appropriate kit, while its 120Hz refresh rate allows for even faster 2D thrills. You can also hook it up to all your consoles, thanks to DVI, dual HDMI, VGA and DisplayPort connections and, unusually for a gaming display, it comes with a height adjustable stand which also twists into portrait mode. Even more unusual is the wired “S Switch” device which is festooned with chunky buttons for changing screen settings at speed.

Dell ST2220T

RH Numbers

For a more hands-on computing experience, you might like to try Dell’s 21.5in ST2220T. It supports Windows 7 multi-touch gestures, includes an IPS panel with wide viewing angles and impressive colour and has a pair of built-in speakers. It can also tilt all the way back to horizontal for table-top touchscreen fun. It’s a far cry from the accuracy and responsiveness of a decent tablet. But it’s great for applications large controls such as Windows Media Center. Be warned, the thick gesture-blocking frame bezel means this isn’t the ideal display for Windows 8 touch input – you’ll have to wait just a little longer for Windows 8 certified models to become available.
