Summary: Arrived with solid packaging, opened it up everything was wrapped in a layer of plastic to protect from scratches. Base was easy to put together (just snaps in place). fits together securely, nothing that seems like it will wiggle loose, easy to disassemble as well. Was hoping for the ability to set up in portrait, but no big loss that it can't I wouldn't have used that function very often any way.
Pros: Inexpensive, quality, bright, built in speakers
Summary: I'm thrilled with the display. Good monitor. No ghosting. Good colours. Good price. Only downside is the auto adjusting brightness which almost makes this a terrible monitor. Very strange, but for desktop use no problems. 99.9% of the time gaming you won't notice.
Pros: Great colours, sharp pixels, matte, no obnoxious lights, no dead pixels, good brightness
Cons: HDMI input is disabled by default, need to go into on screen menu to enable it. Long turn-on time from sleep. Dynamic contrast ratio can't be disabled despite on screen display saying it is.
Summary: Well worth the cost for a MVA panel monitor. Comes with built in speakers that while not the best can come in handy. The response time is not the best you can get by any standard, but at only a few MS slower than most monitors you wont notice the difference.
Pros: Great viewing angles, Very affordable, Outstanding contrast ratio and black levels
Cons: Built in speakers are not that good., Only came with a VGA cord, so I had to go buy a DVI cord to make the most of the monitor.
Summary: Bought this monitor to go with a build I put together for a family member. They really enjoy it. It's no IPS panel, but the colours look pretty good to be honest. The price was right when I bought it. The speakers are weak but ok for watching youtube videos.
Pros: price was good on sale, 24 inch is a nice size for office use
Summary: I waited for Black Friday to buy this, I saw it at 149.99 at one point and I should have picked it up then, Black Friday was 159.99. In any case, great price for what you get, an MVA panel 24" monitory at 1080p for 160 bucks? Can't complain though I do have beef with the 11 dollar environmental recycling fee...Hope the province ends that racket. Be sure to test your monitor after you get it.
Pros: -high definition 1080 p, -price and value - lot of bang for your buck (159.99 on sale), -speakers
Cons: -dead pixel on center bottom but whatever, -can't do vertical or tilting adjustments - it locks in however it locks in, -only 1 hdmi port, only 1 dvi port, and speakers mediocre but all these are minor compared to value bonus, -slow wake time from sleep
Summary: I decided to award the monitor 4 out of 5 stars, don't get me wrong it's a decent monitor and I'm very pleased with it, considering it only costs £120, it's a steal. Overall the design is rather basic, nothing to write home about, but it does the job and looks ok sitting on a computer table. To be honest I'm more interested in function over design, so it's 'basic' glossy, black plastic looks are fine with me.
Summary: This is my second benq monitor, still, very impressive performance/value. I bought this monitor to use as a extension to my Y400 laptop (which has rubbishest screen I ever used, it will hurt your eye). Plugged in, what a difference, clear and colourful. I give 4 star only because the build-in speaker is at the back of monitor, so the sound is coming from the back, which feels strange, and speakers themselves aren't very good.
