We like the NEC's gaming-centric 24-incher. It packs subtle tones and decent colour accuracy. It also sports solid viewing angles, snappy pixel response and plenty of input options, including two HDMI ports.
Of course, that's what you would expect, but NEC has also gone the extra mile by adding features such as the 'Through Mode', which disables the image processing circuitry in a quest for minimal input lag and an IR unit for remotely switching inputs and adjusting image quality.
Both are nice touches. A firm thumbs up also goes to the 24WMGX3's funky threads.
However, there's no getting away from the fact that HP's superficially plane Jane LP2475W is superior in most image quality metrics and is cheaper too.
