Summary: The BenQ GW2760HS is quite remarkable indeed. It's a cheap, no-nonsense PC monitor that gives you a large and capable 27" VA panel for a ridiculously low price of Rs 20,000. Not only does this panel seem to possess true 8-bit fidelity, but it doesn't compromise in response times for gaming either. The colour and greyscale accuracy makes everything from movies to videogames quite fun, while it's minimalist good looks make it all the more appealing.
Conclusion: BenQ have done well to craft a monitor that has very few real flaws. While the speakers and stand could be improved, that’s quite understandable at this price and definitely where I’d want to make sacrifices if they were necessary. You could point to monitors with superior resolution or higher refresh rates, but these cost significantly more. For its price, this monitor seems unparalleled.
Pros: Incredible value at £210, Very thin and light for a 27″ monitor, Excellent image quality for its price bracket, Ideal for multi-monitor setups due to thin bezel, Easiest OSD I’ve used for a while
Cons: Fairly mediocre internal speakers, Few stand adjustment options

28 August 2013
Excerpt: The quality of low-priced monitors has increased tremendously of late, and this BenQ GW2760HS nothing short of a steal. Our in depth-testing and review of the revealed a high-end monitor for a less than a quarter of the price Apple and Dell are charging. Over the last few years monitors have been divided up into two camps: LCD IPS for the pros and LED or TFT for everyone else, with the IPS variations like Apple’s Cinema Display and the Dell Ultrasharp U2713HM sitting at...
Pros: Large 27-inch display, flicker-free technology, non-glossy AG matte coating, fantastic colour gamut range, unobtrusive bezel, amazingly low price
Cons: Resolution not as high as Apple Cinema Display, colour accuracy isn’t as good as a high-end monitor
Conclusion: The BenQ GW2760HS is a capable and feature-rich display that doesn't disappoint. If you get headaches or eye strain after looking your a monitor for too long, you should try this flicker-free alternative.
Pros: Great image reproduction, Robust and stylish, Flicker free, VESA compatible, Good for movies
Cons: No height adjustment, No swivel stand, Lousy audio, Average text reproduction
Conclusion: When looking at a VA based screen there are certain things we've come to expect nowadays, although BenQ have taken some pleasing steps to improve this new screen in many regards. An obvious strength of AMVA panel technology is the black depth and contrast ratio, and the GW2760HS does not let us down here, with some very impressive static contrast ratio figures.
Pros: Flicker free backlight a positive step change, Improved AMVA viewing angles over older generations, Excellent static contrast ratio, and even a working DCR
Cons: Moderate pixel response times, not as fast as other competing technologies, Limited ergonomic adjustments with only tilt available, Some uniformity issues potentially
Excerpt: Fazit: Gemessen an seinem günstigen Preis erweist sich der BenQ GW2760HS im Test als gutes Angebot. Das VA-Panel liefert insgesamt eine überzeugende Bildqualität, lediglich Blickwinkelstabilität und Gammakurve sind nicht optimal. Ausstattung und Ergonomie entsprechen Klassen-Standard, der Stomverbrauch ist für einen 27-Zoll-TFT angenehm niedrig.
