Dell S2440L

RH Numbers

A slightly pricier option comes from Dell’s new S-series of high-quality, low-cost displays. This 24in model offers hidden illuminated touch-sensitive controls and sleek edge-to-edge glass, lending it the appearance of a giant iPad floating in mid-air. Internally, it features an MVA panel which delivers wide viewing angles and accurate colour. It has no speakers, but there’s an audio output so you can pass sound from the HDMI input through to an external set. The high-gloss screen is more about looks than day-to-day productivity, but if you can keep reflections at bay you’ll enjoy some really deep blacks and punchy contrast.

Iiyama ProLite E2473HDS-B1

RH Numbers

For the less well-heeled gamer, Iiyama’s ProLite E2473HDS-B1 is a lower-cost LED-backlit display with a decent set of inputs and a fast response time, without any fancy controller add-ons or support for 3D. It uses a TN panel which can’t match the sheer image quality of IPS, but it certainly outpaces it with a gamer-friendly response time of just 2ms. It’s also one of the best-performing TN panels around, making it a good all-round display for when you might want to knuckle down and do some actual work. If you’re a gamer at heart, but want a decent display for all your other tasks, the E2473HDS-B1 is a great buy.
