To test the BenQ G2400W, I will use the DisplayMate Multimedia Edition program. The DisplayMate Company has a short quote that sums up what it is all about:

"DisplayMate Technologies is widely recognized throughout the computer and video industries as the worldwide leader in video diagnostics, which are used in the calibration, testing, evaluation and optimization of image and picture quality for all types of displays, such as CRTs, analog and digital LCDs and plasma displays, video projectors, microdisplays, HDTVs and more."

This program should give me some indication of just how well this monitor stacks up to other monitors. I will be using the the Acer P243W and the BenQ FP241VW monitors as comparison.
