Summary: This monitor is like playing on a CRT TV all over again. GREAT response and the graphics are very good as well. This monitor is great for its price and if you are considering buying a BENQ simply for console gaming DO NOT DO IT. The BenQ houses too much power to be utilized in its entirety by current generation consoles (Xbox 360 at least) so there is no need to pay $500 for a console use only gaming monitor.
Summary: Great Monitor. Speakers are low quality if you care about that sort of thing. You need a audio cord to have the speakers work out of the box which I'm not sure is stated clearly. They didn't work through HDMI when I tried.
Summary: I purchased this because I needed a good monitor for gaming as well as computer use. I everything about this product, there's nothing I dislike about it. This monitor is great for everything and is a good price too.
Summary: for starters the picture quality is great.and it even has diffrent mode settings to enhance it even further .it tilts to a comfortable viewing angle and it has built-in speakers.the only thing i didnt like was changing the settings the menu is kinda funky to us.but once you get use to it its ok
Summary: Let me start off by saying Amazon's shipping was fast and efficient as always. I bought this monitor on a Sunday morning and it arrived Monday at around 2pm central time. It was literally just over a day. The best part was I didn't even pay for overnight shipping. I just got the standard Amazon Prime 2 day shipping. Now onto the meat of the review. From Monday through Friday (which is today) I've been testing out this monitor. I bought it to play video games.
Summary: Bought it to mainly play my 360 on it. It's amazing for the price. The picture is great and the virtually non-existent input lag is crucial for fighting games which I play. Used to play on a crappy Polaroid HDTV with 1080i, and now switching over to this and playing on 1080p, I'm noticing so many graphical details which I could not see before. I'd say this is one of the best purchases I've ever made. Get it.
Summary: I bought this as an upgrade for my aging 18 inch monitor, and I must say it is beautiful. This is a very bright monitor, which Is ideal for me as im a PC gamer. When I bought this it was on sale for 144, which is a steal with a monitor this size. Its made by Asus, so I know its a good product. My motherboard is also manufactured by Asus, they are a good company to put your dollars behind.
Summary: After seeing all of the negative reviews, I wanted to weigh in with my own experience. First of all, if you're buying this monitor, it really should be for one purpose and one purpose only: to play games. This monitor's claim to fame is the lack (not total, but about as close as you get with LCD technology) of input lag. This is crucial for video games that rely on timing your button presses within certain frames of animation.
