LED-based monitors actually worth their asking price is a recent trend I can easily get behind. Displays such as the Dell S2330MX and the Samsung S23A550H are LED-based, low-priced, and, when push comes to shove, are ultimately worth their low prices.

Thin is in. The x2301 has one of the thinnest profiles we've seen. Actually, according to our measurements, it's ranked No. 3 in the thinnest monitors of all time list, behind the No. 1-ranked LG E2290 and No. 2 Dell S2330MX.

The transparent turquoise edges add even more style to an already stylish package. Style overload!
