Setting up the BenQ G2400W is a breeze. All you have to do is plug the cable into your computer and the matching port on the monitor. When you turn the monitor on, it should figure out what type of connection you are using and go straight to it. Using the OSD (On Screen Display), you can change pretty much any setting you want. Some of the settings that stand out to me are the ability to turn on 1:1 mapping. What this does is keep the monitor from stretching the display if you run at a resolution that is not native to the monitor. This is really useful if you plug in a device designed to run on an HDTV as it will keep things from getting stretched vertically. You can also adjust the volume output for the audio out jack and change color settings. Also, when you press the second to the right button (from the power button) you can cycle through all the inputs on the monitor. This is one of the best features of the monitor for me as it allows me to use my PC and XBox360 on the same device. No software was included with the G2400W, so there was no software to install.
Let's take a quick look at the official specification for this monitor.
