Summary: Bought this figuring since I was used to a 14ms 19in display I wouldn't be able to significantly notice the ghosting. I was wrong. It's a great display for the prices, but 4ms GTG just isn't QUITE fast enough to be considered applicable if your looking for little to no ghosting. I suggest this monitor if you're on a budget. It's great for the price. Good colors, sturdy stand, and looks great.
Pros: Cheap for a 27 inch monitor. Sturdy stand. Good viewing angles. Good colors.
Summary: I bought this to replace a 7-year old Hewlett-Packard 24" HD Monitor (HP x2408h) from approx. 2007. The BenQ is larger (27"), but the HP has better resolution and is still working great. At this point I would not recommend this item, unless it was at an exceptionally low price.
Pros: Cost was OK, if not on the high side for what I received.
Cons: Picture resolution is not very impressive. Only came with one standard VGA cable, Did not have an HDMI cable, although it does have a HDMI connection point. Did not come with an Audio Cable, even though the monitor has speakers. Did not come with the Drivers & Owners Manual CD-ROM. It was purchased as a "New" device. I'm wondering if this was a previously used/opened/returned item ???
Pros: It's good enough for office job, especially for a price
Cons: With HDMI input it shrinks picture down about inch from each side with all distortions of not native resolution. So I could not use my existing HDMI cable and had to buy DVI. It comes with D-Sub cable only. No HDMI or DVI. It looks ridiculous for me. Wake up time from no signal mode is enormous, 15-20 seconds. You get picture by the end of POST, missing all BIOS setup invitations. When I get back from a lunch break my pc is locked and the monitor is powered off. I can...
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...
