V7 brand. How budget? Very. The 24-inch D24W33 has an MSRP of $459. That takes home a 1,920 x 1,200 resolution, 1,000:1 reported contrast, 250cd/m2 brightness, 160-degree viewing angles, quick 2 millisecond response, and choice of analog VGA or HDMI inputs. Yes, HDMI... no DVI or DisplayPort in sight. So if you want a rich, digital link from your laptop or PC you'll have to get a DVI to HDMI cable and burn that HDMI port. Too bad, 'cause that leaves nothing for your game console or other HDMI video source. Dell's own budget $469 E248WFP features the same 24-inches and analog VGA input but with HDCP-enabled DVI, a slower (5-ms) response, but brighter (400cd/m2) image. So what will you do when it ships in January?
