    Hey, I'm trying to find a good gaming monitor and am currently stuck between these two,

    BenQ GL2450HM (24" with HDMI and speakers)

    Asus VE247H (24" with HDMI and speakers)

    I will primarily be using it to play the Wii U and occasionally as a larger output for my laptop

    Any help deciding between the two would be much appreciated!

    Well given how refresh rate and input latency aren't going to mean jack on a monitor if you're plonking just a Wii U and a laptop in there occasionally, I would say an IPS monitor. Does your laptop output using HDMI or Display port and are you picky over features in future, say if you got a desktop. So that would mean things like 144Hz refresh, G sync/free sync support, 16:10 or 21:9 aspect ratio, 1440p resolution, no flickering, adjustable height, tilt and swivel features? OR are you just looking for a cheap monitor that looks decent that doesn't blow the bank,I'm guessing 150 quid or less is the range you're in

    I just did some hunting around, I looked on Overclockers first(I trust them greatly) but then I thought, ok, lets see if PC World has anything decent and surprisingly they delivered

    http://www.pcworld.co.uk/gbuk/deskto...67021-pdt.html

    It's IPS so the viewing angles and colours should be better than a standard monitor, its got support for 2 HDMI inputs so one from a Wii U and one from your laptop simultaneously. It's got built in speakers that are stereo so the sound should be ok enough(I'd recommend either using headphones or a set of speakers), it has a built in headphone port so you can listen to the sound direct out of the monitor. It's 23 inches and Full HD, its a 60Hz panel with 5ms of response latency which is better than your average TV but about average for a monitor but it'll be more responsive for a Wii U than a large LCD TV does(mainly due to the fact that TV's do a lot of image processing which takes time). This monitor I think would be the best bet for you and it costs 150 quid. Hope I was of good use

    I've got the VE247H (actually a slightly older version I think). It's a decent monitor, obviously not top-spec because it's pretty cheap but it's good value I think. It's lasted me over three years though, no defects or anything.

    Ah, you went above and beyond, than you so much for that.

    Thanks for your help, I probably will get the one you suggested!
