  • All in all, the BenQ GW2250 is a good performer and comes with a price tag of Rs. 8,700 in India. It has all the basic connectivity options, well above average performance, and a very attractive price tag. If youâ??re building a budget rig or want to upgrade from an older CRT or LCD monitor without spending too much, then this is a good product to consider.


  • The Viewsonic VA2251m-TAA is an affordable 22-inch monitor that delivers solid color quality and doesn't require much power. As with most budget-class monitors, it comes up short it terms of features.


  • The AOC e2351F is an attractive 23-inch monitor with an affordable price tag. Input connections are limited on this barebones monitor and the touch-sensitive buttons are annoying, but you get a sharp picture with relatively good off angle viewing performance, and it doesn't use much power.
