The Asus VW223B is acceptable for its intended audience — those who need to add a second monitor cheaply, and are undemanding in its use.
Plus two full-size USB ports for your peripherals.
Bargain shoppers beware: this LCD's low price comes at the expense of good image quality. We don't recommend it.
BenQ's swank FP783 17-inch LCD will give your work space a dose of high style, although its image quality is less attractive.
BenQ's EW2430V is a decent performer with good movie-watching capabilities, excellent black levels and a lengthy warranty. If you're after a good all-rounder, it should suit your needs perfectly.
BenQ's G2222HDL is an entry-level monitor that "does the job", but has sharpness issues and stumbles in some of our image quality tests.
BenQ's V2400W is a great way to get a higher resolution at a cheap price, although some of the usual extras are left out along the way.
The VX2237wm is passable considering its price range, but you can get better for cheaper if you don't need the speakers.
Asus' PB278Q is quite nice indeed for the price, offering a no-frills premium panel for those who are looking to save pennies.
The Asus MS236H is an attractive monitor with a few shortcomings; the buttons are frustrating, and the lack of adjustability may annoy some. It does, however, represent excellent power savings, looks great and delivers acceptable performance.
Although the performance is okay, Dell's Crystal is best left to those who want to prove they have money.
The HP ZR2740w sacrifices customization to deliver a powerful monitor at a reasonable price.
The company also adds some useful features for streamlining a color-critical workflow.
At AU$599, the VX2739wm epitomises the "cheap and cheerful" category. It's definitely not a performance leader, but it does provide a huge, full HD monitor for an incredibly cheap price. We'd wager many people would be happy with that.
The near frameless 3,440x1,600-resolution display is designed to immerse you in whatever you're doing.
AOC's 2236Vw is a budget-level model, with severe light bleed, poor greyscale control and an awful OSD. There are simply much better options in this price range, like Acer's G225HQ. As such, we can't recommend it.
The flagship of its new curved QLED game displays can replace two side-by-side 27-inchers, and the three models are the first to support AMD FreeSync 2.
One of a handful of 38-inch displays, LG's is also big and curved. What more do you want?
