The first thing I noticed when pulling out the BenQ G2400W was that it had a very small bezel all the way around the monitor. They get away with this by not including speakers with the monitor and placing the configuration buttons on the bottom of the bezel. You might be asking yourself now "well, if it has HDMI, wouldn't you want to have speakers?" This is a great point since HDMI carries sound as well as video. To account for this, BenQ added a 1/8th inch TRS (headphone) jack on the side of the monitor so you can plug in any speakers you want or use headphones. Another nice feature that is already apparent with this monitor is the limited amount of lighted buttons on the face of it. The only light (besides the actual screen) that this monitor will emit will come from the front placed power button and it isn't very bright either.
The base that comes with this monitor is a little small and flimsy for a monitor of this size. However, it does serve as a fairly sturdy base and holds the monitor well. As long as there isn't a lot of movement on your desk, it should be just fine. Finally, there is a small amount of documentation that comes with the monitor. Let's get this monitor set up and take a look at how it does.
