Dell is issuing a massive recall of 4.1 million battery packs, used in several of its laptop lines, because of a risk of overheating and fire.
The company says there have been only a handful of reports of property damage, and none of injuries, and doesn't expect to take a big hit in its earnings from the costs of the recall. But the incident is another black eye for a company that's been losing some of its luster

BenQ isn't bad, they're Acer's "Value Oriented" brand.

You forgot Dell, too.

My Dad has had that monitor for about 4 months now. No dead pixels, he games with it and theres no ghosting, etc. No banding issues either. Overall a great LCD, I want one for XMAS myself. I'm sure many of the users here can agree with me that Dell Ultrasharps are some of the best, if not the best LCD out there.

from the scan website

The X series is a new breed of intelligent display from iiyama. The only LCD in the UK to have an infrared motion sensor for advanced power management, it also features an ambient light sensor to automatically adjust brightness levels in keeping with your environment. The simple yet stylish button-less design will add a touch of class to your desktop whilst the 8 msec panel with 700:1 contrast will ensure a clear and stable image for a range of applications. The ProLite X486S includes a selection of inputs for complete flexibility (USB, DVI-D and VGA).




and from their website:

The infrared sensor recognizes if someone sits in front of the display and can turn it to standby mode automatically.

I'd get the one without that - sounds like a gimmick

id agree tbh apart from one thing.

compared to the 5ms monitor, the one with the gimmick also has 16.77 million colors compared to 16.2....
