Summary: I bought this to use with a mac book air and is was a slightly repaired one from Amazon at £158. For a quality 26" monitor thats pretty outstanding ( I did the research) and its a lovely quality item.
Summary: I really like this monitor., The additional desktop space is very handy allowing, for instance, multiple windows to be opened side by side. The image quality is also very good though did need a bit of tuning. I was concerned at the relatively slow 8ms response time since I play first person shooters but I have not spotted any ghosting or similar effects and playing on the larger screen is really impressive.
Summary: I was looking for a decent size screen to run using an old mac and have to say very pleased with this one so far. Good colour and brightness, ideally had my budget allowed I would have bought a higher res screen but can't fault this for the money.
Summary: I was worried that moving up to a 27 inch monitor I might find it too big - not at all, bigger is better. It worked straight out the box and without needing any adjustments. Great looker too and the base doesn't look cheap and nasty like some plastic bases. You get a remote control too though I've never needed to use it. The picture is crisp and clear and colour rendering accurate on the default settings. You could tweak it if you're into Photoshop and hyperfussy.
Summary: Excellent value for money - arrive quickly and well packed. Before I purchased this screen I debated long and hard about size and quality - the 27" display is great and the quality of the display represents excellent value for money. Unfortunately I don't have experience of significantly more expensive monitors to compare it with, but the colour reproduction and clarity is very good.
Summary: I bought this to replace my 16" monitor in our home office and chose BenQ as I had previously bought a projector manufactured by them. It took longer to remove all of the protective covering than to set it up! Perfect plug and play, it auto adjusted to my Windows 7 PC and I was up and running immediately. After 2 weeks of use, I purchased another 2 identical monitors for the other guys in the office.
