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.
Worked well under Ubuntu, but not so much with Windows 8

Summary: The monitor is nice, big and bright. I tried hooking it up to an HP desktop running Windows 8, and Windows did not recognize it as something that had the full 1920x1080 resolution, which was a pain. I tried finding drivers, but no luck. Fortunately, I had another desktop computer that I could swap monitors with- An old Dell running Ubuntu. Ubuntu picked up the monitor/brand right away, and it works like a charm!
Summary: so i ordered this monitor and it arrived two days later..1st noticed the monitor while in the box felt very light...like less than 5 pounds.monitor looks great just had that cheap plastic feel is all. anyways so i plug it up to my gaming rig and instantly notice ghosting effects, very noticable frame rate issues with even web browsing, and a color scheme that should have been done accurately at the factory.
Summary: I bought this monitor after reading a lot of reviews, reviews were positive, they said it was a good monitor for its price, monitor isn't all that, performance didn't match expectation, picture isn't that good, I have smaller cheaper 24 inch monitor with better picture, monitor is ok, but I'm not impressed, not bad, but not great
Caution: Like a baby IPS but not as much as I'd hoped, poor color repo

Summary: I mean, I have the Benq m2700HD at home for gaming, and I swear by it for FPS and WOW and WOT, in fact everything rocks on that puppy. So I bought another Benq, this model GW2750HM, for the office. While I have not really gamed on this monitor as it was bought strictly for work, it has overall not lived up to basic photo and web-image editing...
Great Monitor, just not sure it's right for gaming

Summary: I really liked the monitor, but ghosting was a real problem, it took a lot of work to get it calibrated to my liking, the presets were really next to unusable (the gaming preset made everything pixelated and jaggy, kind of like a PSX game). Once it's properly setup, it looks fantastic, but ghosting is real issue in fast paced games, I mainly play planetside 2 and it was distracting to me, I moved to a Dell Ultrasharp and am much happier, but I think most of my issue was...
Summary: I have two monitors to compare this to: my ASUS VE278Q and my BenQ EW2730. Of the three, this one has the best colours, contrast, and whites from what I can tell. The blacks are only slightly worse than the other BenQ. As for ghosting: my EW2730 has absolutely horrendous ghosting, and is impossible to comfortably watch a video or play a video game on. My VE278Q on the other hand has extremely minimal, if any (maybe slight reverse ghosting), ghosting at all.
Pros: - Excellent colours, contrast, and blacks, - Awesome sale price!
Cons: - Mild ghosting, - Awful menu and buttons, - Whites tend to be overly blue
OK. But the BenQ GW2760HS is better for a similar price

Summary: I bought this monitor only for use with my Xbox and for watching films/tv through my laptop. However, it arrived with a dead pixel so I arranged for its return. After reading additional reviews online, as well as on the BenQ website, I decided to replace this monitor with a BenQ GW2760HS. The prices are very similar but I found that the GW2760HS receives considerably better reviews compared to the GW2750HM.
