Intermittently Fail

Jon B., Newegg
30 December 2014
  • Pros: Looks nice when off....
  • Cons: I bought two monitors. At first is was great, then they started to intermittently fail. One would go out for a few seconds and then the other would. I tried swapping cables to try and isolate the problem to the video card or the monitors, but could not detect a pattern. I replaced the video card ...

Extreme Disappointment

Terry G., Newegg
25 January 2014
  • Summary: After reading the glowing reviews of this monitor and Benq's reputation of premium gaming monitors i was very excited to get these and so i got two of them. I cant tell you how disappointed i am.
  • Pros: Price, on sale for $130.
  • Cons: Colors washed out at first and needs a lot of tweaking, huge bezel, distortion lines on dark screens, EXTREME ghosting, one monitor has a bad blue tint, while the other is fine.

Not So Great After All!

Anonymous, Newegg
27 March 2013
  • Summary: I had enough! I replaced this hunk-o-junk with an Acer V243HAJbd and I couldn't be much happier! BenQ quality has gone far downhill since they made my previous one (FP202W). That is an AWESOME monitor! If only I could have stretched the screen 3.5"!
  • Pros: It works, sort of. No bad pixels. Sharp image quality. Accurate color.
  • Cons: So many! : Takes over 5 seconds to wake from standby. When it wakes it announces its input source with a box mid-screen for 5 seconds. Can't turn that off. When it sleeps it brightens back up to announce "NO SIGNAL DETECTED" for 5 full seconds. Can't turn that off either. The glossy bezel had to ...
