X-bit Labs has published a roundup of six 24" LCD displays: Acer AL2416WBsd,
NEC AccuSync LCD24WMCX,
NEC MultiSync LCD2470WNX,
NEC MultiSync LCD2470WVX
and Samsung SyncMaster 2493HM.
You will see six new models of 24” monitors in this roundup. They are based on two matrix types, PVA and TN. Although the latter type is traditionally considered an attribute of low-end models due to its modest technical characteristics, it is not only available in the sector of rather expensive 24-inchers but claims the leadership, at least in terms of the number of new products announced. For example, only two monitors to be discussed here are based on PVA, and the remaining four are TN.
But is it so bad after all? The lower characteristics of TN matrixes are made up for by the lower price. So the question is if the quality is up to the price or not.
