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 to no avail. Now one monitor is consistently flaky and the other is slightly less so. If I swap the video cables, the same monitor stays out. Today, after 8 months, I have one...
Cons: broken out of the box. no OSD menu or input recognition. did get a splash screen which let me know that the panel worked, just not the firmware or interface. called benq tech support and they were sure that i just didn't know where the power button was. i guess i should stop using my cd drive as a cup holder to. anyway tech support was clueless, newegg was awesome, issued an rma and free shipping label. I'm trying a different brand
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. After first plugging them in they looked completely washed out and grey but after some fiddling i got the colors to look right, (not great, but good) except one monitor has a prominent blue tint to it even if its set to warm color.
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.
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"! Please disregard my previous reviews of this cruddy monitor.
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 be covered with black masking tape to stop it from reflecting light from behind me and to stop it from reflecting the screen at the edges! And the WORST thing is that on 30% o...
