Summary: I was super excited for this when I bought it, it was advertized as a 4ms response time when I bought it, only to get it and realize that the actual response time is more like 12ms and since I play games it ghosts terribly. The picture looks great, movies are fine too, but it was not what I was expecting from BenQ.
Summary: There are faster monitors and better tilt adjusting mechanisms but you get a lot for under $200. Plugged in and worked fine, plays HD movies, huge screen, I love it for reading e-books. There are better monitors for gamers if you want to pay three times the price. I would highly recommend this for users who would like to get the 27" experience!
Summary: This is a great monitor, I love these things 27inch gaming monitors. RPG gaming mainly here. would not suggest for those FPS gamers as there is a small motion blur in quick action games like BF4 and COD. Cant beat the price. I own 3 of them... I'm a graphic and photo editor.... I would not suggest using these as a primary monitor for any color correction because the gamma is off even when using professional screen calibrating devices... The whites are a tint of blue..
Summary: I rolled the dice and bought one of the "Refurbished" monitors. CONS: I assume that it was returned due to the AWFUL factory defaults. When you turn on the monitor it doesn't "auto detect" an HDMI input. All you have is a black screen,you MUST go in the menu and tell the monitor to Auto detect HDMI.If a person didnt catch that,it would probably be boxed up and returned :) The factory settings are absolutely horrible IMHO, brightness is maxed, and the colors look bad.
