The Viewsonic VX2452mh doesn't tick all the boxes that make up the ideal monitor, but this 24-inch, $170 model certainly has more than enough to hit your basic entry-level display needs.
The VX2452mh might not be a very flashy product, but TheTechReviewer feels Viewsonic did an "excellent job" with the design and that it's "thin." However, despite that slender profile, Digital Versus says it still has a "good choice of connectors."
The picture quality is a bit of a mixed bag, though, with PC Mag saying "picture quality was sharp," but there were still some issues with "very light and very dark shades of gray." The biggest issue is ghosting, and Digital Versus says "the traces of ghost images take up to 21ms" to be fully removed. Serious gamers will be put off by the poor ghosting -- and rightfully so -- but those who don't play a lot of first person shooters (and other action-heavy genres) will probably find it plenty passable.
