    decent value <$200, tradeoff build quality

    Posted

    I got one of these on sale at BestBuy for <$200 delivered. It seemed a great value. Strangely, Lenovo raised the list price since I bought this in Jan by ~$30 I use this as a 2nd monitor for my 2017 macbook pro the picture quality is good for text. works well for me at native 2k resolution- I can work on two pages side by side. the monitor has a reduced blue light mode which I use all of the time (my eyes seem sensitive relative to others). picture is sufficient for tv / movie watching, though darks do get washed out, even in monitor's "video" mode the picture quality is noticeably worse than my macbook's screen (contrast / dynamic range mostly), but it does a great job for my needs and for the dollar, so overall, no complaints here. one nit to pick, the menu system to change the display modes is a pain. I scroll through menus more than I want to switch between blue light and video modes. not a huge deal, but an annoyance. build quality is so-so. It's light and cheap, but this comes at the cost of a flimsy chassis. I don't move my monitor much, so it seems okay. lack of vesa mount is hugely annoying, however if you are handy with hardware, there is a work-around. you unscrew the attachment plate from the stand and screw that to a vesa plate. you will also want to create a metal stand-off (I used nuts) so that you are not asking the plastic cover to be a structural component. if you go down this route, do the final tightening of the attachment nuts AFTER you have clipped the mount into the monitor, otherwise, it will be difficult to get the clip to engage. this hack makes for a flimsy, but plenty sufficient vesa mount if you only move your monitor occasionally. If you are aggressive with your adjustments, bad things may happen. the other pain for me was getting the mac to play nicely with this monitor, i.e. get it to display at native resolution. I think this is apple's fault. get the SwitchResX app, and you can sort this out with a little work.

    Almost no Bezel

    I bought these monitors to downsize from a pair of 27" IPS monitors that I had. I wanted to keep the 2560 x 1440 resolution and these fit the bill, additionally I wanted smaller to no bezels. This monitor not only delivers on the resolution they have virtually no bezel. The picture quality blows my other IPS monitors out of the water, very crisp text is better and the color are more accurate to me. Mind you I didn't test them with equipment just a side by side with the old screens. I am watching a video with the monitor in video mode and and it is just stunning. The 23.8" screen size is perfect for my needs. Oh and the base is made of medal which was a pleasant surprise after dealing with plastic bases. If you want a dual screen setup for school, web and videos these are the ones to get. I was worried about there not being any reviews for this screen online but I do not regret buying these at all. As long as they last lol

    Now that 2560x1440 displays have dropped to a reasonable price, I decided to add one as a second display. I chose this Lenovo because the price was right, the side bezels are nearly non-existent, and the store demo looked very good. When I got it home and hooked it up, that's when the disappointment started. First off, my Windows 7 PC with Intel HD Graphics 2000 defaulted to 1920x1080, not the 2560x1440 that I expected. With some tweaking I was able to get to 1920x1200. LCD displays always interpolate when running at anything other than their native setting, which results in text that is somewhat blurry. I found that my old graphics card is capable of going up to 2560x1440, but only up to 44Hz, not the standard 60 Hz. The Lenovo monitor was unable to sync at such a low frequency. I would neede to install a new video card to get the display to work at its native resolution. However, even a new video card would not have solved the other issues I saw. First, the colors were vivid -- too vivid. They were so saturated that it was wiping out subtle details in my photos. I used to have a Lenovo laptop at work which looked just like this. I spent a couple hours fiddling with settings on the display and the PC but never got the colors tamed. Another minor annoyance: No provisions for mounting to a standard VESA mount bracket, which would make it harder to set up as a second monitor. One more minor annoyance: It only has one HDMI and one DisplayPort input. I would like to share this display between my desktop and laptop, but neither of them have DisplayPort, so that is not an option, and with only one HDMI input there is no way to share. I ended up returning the Lenovo and getting a Dell U2515H. It was able to sync to my existing graphics card at less than 60 Hz. The colors are much more natural. It has standard VESA mounting holes. It has dual HDMI inputs so I can use it with both PCs. And the price difference is the same as the cost of a graphics card. I really wanted to like the Lenovo. It could be a good option for someone who does not have the same constraints as I do, but it just did not meet my needs.

    Great affordable monitor marred by a fatal issue

    Great monitor in general in most areas with a few caveats and one major flaw. You can't adjust the height of the monitor but you can tell that from the stand so that was no surprise. The stand is also very wobbly. The slightest bump to your table or whatever you place the monitor on and it'll shake. I have a glass desk with a keyboard tray and even as I type this review right now, both monitors (I have 2) shake. There is no color temperature settings you can adjust but most people can live w/ that. However, the major issue with this monitor is that you CANNOT save your brightness and contrast settings. Lenovo left a comment to one of the reviews here stating you need to hold the Enter key for 10s to save the settings. First off, that doesn't work. I checked their own support site and holding the Enter button for 10s only "locks the menu" meaning you cannot even enter the monitor OSD menu*. Most if not all monitors have this function so it's nothing new but most monitors (Lenovo's withstanding) save your settings as you EXIT out of the settings menu. Once you power off the monitor or it goes to sleep and wakes up, it resets to the original setting which is 80 brightness and 85 contrast which is a bit too bright and high of a contrast setting to use comfortable for me. If you don't mind it then I guess it'll work for you but those 2 settings are always the first and usually only things I change on new monitors. I'm only keeping these monitors because I got them at a huge discount but having to adjust the settings each and every time is very annoying. *https://support.lenovo.com/us/en/solutions/pd104885

    Clear, Crisp, Bright and Budget-conscious

    I am using two of these 24" Lenovo L24q-20 monitors for my work station. Previously I was using a $136 Full HD 1080p resolution HP monitor (VH240a) which I purchased for the height adjustability and integrated speakers, but looking at that monitor I felt like my eyes were constantly hazy. Even at optimized settings, I felt like I was looking at below-HD standards. After upgrading to the Lenovo's, I love looking at my screen. While it lacks any height adjustability or speakers, the QHD 2560x1440 resolution really makes a difference since I'm viewing the screen about 2 feet away. Text is very clear and crisp, and video is also great. I opted not to get a 4K resolution monitor because some of my software I use for work is not scaleable, so many of the buttons and tabs end up being very tiny. The QHD resolution is just right for me. Of course, I wish there was height adjustability, but I can just place them on a pair of risers and that'll be fine. My only gripe I guess would be that these are NOT VESA mount compatible. I believe Lenovo makes their own bracket, but I'm not sure if that bracket is compatible with this model. I would love to put these monitors on a dual arm mount, but at the price point I felt I could give that up. I bought these monitors on Labor Day for $149.99 each, so $50 discount. Also for sale on Labor Day was a 27" Asus 1080P monitor (Asus - VZ279H 27" IPS LED) at the same price of $149.99, but the Lenovo blew it away in terms of viewing pleasure. These monitors are so thin and light too, and with the matte aluminum finish to it, looks very sleek on my desk.

    Last year I was looking for an IPS monitor to use as an external one for my laptop. At that time there were almost no reviews for this monitor. It was a new model and it was on sale at BestBuy. It was the only QHD (2560 x 1440) monitor for the money. The problem was that my laptops Graphics card didn't support that resolution. It had only HD output and I was concerned about the picture quality, I thought it might be blurry. I had a couple of other options in my mind such as LG and AOC 27 inch HD monitors, so I went to the store to compare them in person. I decided to go with Lenovo - L24q-20 because I had a plan to switch to a better laptop, thus I could use it to the full potential. It worked perfectly with my old laptop with lower HD resolution. Although I had to adjust the aspect ratio for the picture, or it would stretch it otherwise. This would leave blank black stripes on both sides of the picture, but the picture and text quality was crisp and clear without any blur. It also works perfect with my new MacBook now, taking advantage of the 2K QHD resolution. Design is good, the metallic finish look and feels great. Picture quality is perfect. The only downside for this model is that it doesn't support VESA mounting, and it doesn't have height or turning adjustable stand. My previous monitor LG IPS231P-BN had that options and I miss them in this one. Would highly advise this monitor to anyone.

      Thank you for choosing the Lenovo IPS 24" QHD monitor. You are correct, this monitor is not VESA compatible and it tilts forward -5-degrees and backward to 22-degrees. We are pleased to hear that the Lenovo monitor is working out so well for you. lenovo

    Would have been great if it had VESA...

    Posted
    Matt

    Not really sure why VESA is excluded in ANY monitor in 2017+ but it shouldn't be. The stand is trash in terms of stability.. but it hasn't fallen or snapped so that's a plus. As for the display, it's been GREAT.. no problems with dead pixel and I have 0 backlight bleed. This is what I was looking for in a budget 1440p monitor. I got it for around $160 and at that price point it's a great purchase. After accepting the huge negative of not having a VESA mount, and receiving a product that had 0 dead pixels and 0 backlight bleed, I decided to keep this monitor. I use this for productivity and gaming. Games played with this range from pubg, fortnite, overwatch, don't starve together, etc. There are some odd things you have to do to ensure your contrast/brightness settings save, but once you figure that out, it's a great monitor if you can get it for under $180.. once you hit $200.. there are other options you can find.. options that INCLUDE VESA mounting. All that said, I am happy with the purchase. IF this monitor were to fail me in the future, I would not purchase it again. My next 1440p monitor or 4k monitor WILL have VESA mounting. Any future monitor I consider that does not have VESA, will NOT be in my considerations. I would not purchase another one due to NOT including a vesa mount adapter. At the very least, the company could have included an adapter, like the HP omen includes a vesa adapter.

    We needed, well wanted higher resolution monitors because of working most of the day in front of the screens. This would my first Lenovo product I have ever purchased, I didn't even say their name correctly, however in my personal research of price, screen resolution and being on sale Lenovo "just won". We bought two monitors four months ago and they are working great for both of us, we are very happy. The OSD. I just changed the brightness from 40 to 80 hit OK, it stays set......shut off the monitor warmed up my coffee turned it back on, it is still set on 80. The screen is anti glare, reading text is much easier as expected. Each far edge of the monitor (left right) is a shade or two maybe three darker, brightness and contrast both set on 40. This is most noticeable on a white background and when I first started using the product. I have not thought about it for over 3 months until this review. If this would cause me to drop the monitor four stars I would have to drop a more expensive monitor to four stars for taking too much money out of my pocket. For our use they are five stars. The stand is sturdy and has plenty of up/down tilt. Our PCs are 2010 home builds with on board video, which turns out not able to drive the monitors at full 2560 x 1440 resolution. With two new GTX 1050 Ti cards and two new DisplayPort Cables we now have what we wanted.
