Summary: Bought the exact same monitor but in a smaller format (24inches). You can't go wrong with this monitor, wait until the price goes down a bit and it's perfect ! Fast & responsive, this monitor is perfect for HD Gaming !
Summary: This is an excellent monitor especially for the price. Replaced my asus 23 inch and couldnt be happier. Crisp picture, handy remote for switching inputs and very nice looking on top of that. I would buy again and fully recommend.
Big and beautiful VA LCD 27-inch monitor BenQ EW2730

Summary: The monitor is nice and beautiful. Viewing angles however are not up to par with IPS displays, some color rendition changes like black will turn into dark purple. Also color reproduction is way off, especially when viewing some blue and green mixed colors. In typical scenario there will be a nurse in aquamarine or turquoise suite and Benq would display it blue. Still, as a computer monitor it is really good, so no regrets or buyer remorse.
Summary: Basically, this monitor is awesome if you don't plan to watch movies or game with it. The picture is very crisp and quite adjustable. Couldn't be happier with it for school work or just regular things with my computer. Where this screen seriously lacks, is response time. Just moving windows around, you'll notice the ghosting. Playing movies or games is awful; it hurts the eyes with how bad the ghosting is.
Pros: - Bright, crisp screen, - All the inputs you'll ever need, - Very nice look, - Size and price
Cons: - Really bad ghosting, - Terrible for games or movies
Summary: I've used several highly rated monitors but none of then compare favorably to this one. The A-MVA panel is absolutely gorgeous in daily use. I needed the large size due to some eyesight issues that can't be corrected with glasses. Gamers may whine about the slightly below average response time and graphics professionals may nit pick about slight imperfections in colour accuracy but... this is the perfect monitor for the rest of us.
Summary: I'm comparing this to my IPS monitor (Dell U2311) and a generic TN panel. The blacks are the best I've ever seen on any LCD type display. It's also incredibly bright. Playing FPS games is fine in terms of pixel response, but the IPS monitor does a better job there. In general, I prefer this monitor to the Dell U2311 (ignoring the size difference).
Pros: Good color reproduction, decent viewing angles, very bright. Better contrast levels then my IPS monitor.
Cons: Pixel response is closer to 25 milliseconds.
Summary: I used the settings for the EW 2420 from TFT Central to calibrate the panel. I found these worked pretty well with a few adjustments for my personal preferences. I like the numerous inputs as I have it connected to a Bell TV HD receiver and two computers. The picture looks great on all three. I like having a remote although it is a little slow. It also came with a HDMI cable although I didn't need it.
Summary: For about $375 you can getyourself a VA panel monitor that looks too bright out of the box but once set-up it looks great. Nice and uniform colors across the screen A TN panel can't do that. And the whole thing stays cool because of the LED backlight. Try it , you'll like it.
Pros: Good resolution, NO heat, no color shift when looking from one side of the screen to the other
Cons: too bright out of the box., colour temperature is off too but can be adjusted
Summary: Pure gammers might not like the monitor, it is not as fast as a 2 ms TN pannel but colors, brightness and contrast are much better than its TN counterpart. Purists might not like MVA's color shifting which this monitor clearly suffers but you're getting used to if you're not looking for it. Bottom line, cheaper than IPS pannel but much better than TN pannel as far as image quality but a bit slower.
Pros: Brightness. The monitor can offer brightness beyond anything I've seen on other monitors. I reduced mine to 50% and it is bright enough., Contrast is outstanding, blacks are rich and colors rendering are more than good and better than my Samsung TN panel.
Cons: Color shifting, first thing I noticed on this monitor which is a weakness of the MVA panels. When looking dead center of the monitor you can clearly see the shifting of colors to the edge of the monitor. Moving your eyes right in front of the edge of the monirot and you see the shifting moved to the center and worsen to the other edge. Not a deal breaker but noticeable., OSD popup in the center of the monitor each time the monitor switch from native resolution to non ...
