Summary: I bought the GW2450 from BenQ's website. No dead pixels, hooray! The packaging was really nice and protective; it came in what looks like an inflatable pool lounger, but folded over to make an envelope. It was smaller of course, but I'm still going to try to float on it later. Very sturdy packaging, so I was completely at ease opening it up. There's no way it was damaged in transit.
Summary: Wow! Picture quality blew me away. Vivid yet not over-saturated that it looks false. Best thing for me is true support for 50hz interlace playback over HDMI. Looks better in real life than in the photos!
Summary: This monitor really is better than 99% of the cheaper ones you'll find at this price. Normally cheap monitors have a TN-panel which gives lesser viewing angles, colour reproduction and contrast values then this monitor. Response times are good enough even for gaming so if this your monitor budget I really don't think you'll find anything better. If you're considering this monitor I'd recommend reading[...
Summary: I chose this partly on other reviews and partly on specification, which included a better than normal contrast ratio. My usage is mixed - internet browsing, email, document writing, and a few games, so I wanted something which could cover all the bases. Once basically calibrated, with the brightness right down and the contrast up fairly high, the picture quality is really very good indeed. Crystal clear, with good colour, no flicker at all, and decent viewing angles.
Summary: As a digital photographer I really value a screen with consistent colour balance. Out of the box these looked good but I checked them with a Huey pro and after it had done its thing I could not see the difference.
Summary: Very pleased with this. I always fear dead pixels when I buy a monitor, but this is clear. If I had to criticise it, it would be the sound. The speaker face backwards so that the effect is slightly muffled. I would have preferred a slightly wider bezel so they could have been forward facing. But frankly everything else about this monitor (at least my unit) is perfect.
Summary: Using as monitor for my laptop when working at home. Arrived on time and set up was very easy. The picture quality, especially for somebody like me where I am involved in home working and do a variety of different taks.

Summary: This monitor is BY FAR the single best monitor out there for the price. I was torn between this and the GL2450HM, but this being a VA screen made me chose this one; TN screens are faster sure but it doesn't compare to the vibrant and deep colours of VA. I honestly cannot say enough good things about this monitor.
