Summary: Screen has a good picture, but not exceptional. It doesn't have a great built quality feel to it, but then the price is so much cheaper that buying a screen from Apple. They're not even in the same hemisphere price wise. We'll see over time if it lasts. I have the original Apple 23" Cinema Display that I bought in 2004 and still use it everyday. I don't know that this will last that long, but we'll see.
If you need want a white monitor, this one will fill the bill.

Summary: Once I got the thing to work (long story), everything was great. I actually bought this item because I wanted a white monitor to go with an old Dell computer I have that is white with white speakers, mouse and keyboard. So far, so good.
Summary: This monitor looks great on my desktop and was easy to install. The only thing to note is that it is NOT HDMI compatible. It will send HDMI out to... I guess a TV? But it will not connect to your computer via an HDMI cord. Other than that, it works great and the screen quality is really great. I work with it in RGB mode and it's very easy to switch into Movie mode if you want to watch something.
Summary: Not having bought BenQ monitors before, I was hesitant with these but after (thorough) research, I'm pleased to say that these are very good quality monitors in terms of build and image quality. I bought two to use at home for work and they work great as dual monitors.
Summary: Excellent monitor particularly when attached by HDMI cable (1920 x 1080). After calibrating the display with Datacolor Spyder3pro I could see the full dynamic range (which I had not been able to before) also the black level and shadow detail is impressive. There does not appear to be any edge light bleeding.
