Pros: Out of the box, the screen is something to be admired. Plentiful cables (not including an HMDI cable) are included making it no hassle to get running. The color depth when properly setup is amazing and also something to be admired. The screen has headphone mount on the back for easy storage, as well as a handle on the stand for easy carrying. Also included is a plastic cover that protect both the screen and stand from acquiring a ton of dust. The cord sorter in the ba...
Cons: The lack of the fifth egg is due to this, the monitor comes preset to FPS1 setting. This setting has insanely washed out whites, and to my opinion horrible blacks. Also included in FPS1 are horrible color values causing hard clipping between slight changes in the same color. Switching this to the standard image mode or photo/image mode fixes both these issues and still allows you to have 120/144 hz. Why the monitor comes on FPS1, or why BenQ thinks horrible colors whe...
Excellent gaming monitor, eliminated annoying motion blur that was bothering me with my older monitor

Summary: Very happy with this 144 Hz monitor. I don't use the monitor for high end graphics work or video editing, so the non-IPS nature of the panel was not important to me (I am aware that IPS monitors are the preferred choice of many professional graphic artists and video editors). That said, I have been happy with the color and appearance.
Summary: Love this monitor... the graphics are buttery smooth without any video lag or noticeable jitters normally associated with monitors. It is BRIGHT when you first get it, but with a little adjustment it will look great! I do want to say, Amazon "Pre-Black-Friday-Sale" for this item was good for $296.99 but then 3 days later it was even cheaper @ $282.14, an even better deal. Too bad Amazon cant (or wont) price match themselves... seems shady...
Summary: I debated between a 120hz and a nice IPS monitor, but I decide to go with this monitor, and I couldn't be happier. Any game above 60-70 fps looks awesome. I've gone as far as lowering some settings in games to get higher fps and a smoother experience. I was afraid of people talking about eye strain and headaches, but I've have not had any of these problems. I love this thing.
Summary: Up till now I've been using cheap monitors that didn't do my graphics cards justice. And apparently the desktop image that I've been using for years had stars and I didn't even know that until I plugged this monitor in. But the best part is my games have never looked so good... I might just have to start over and put another 300 hours into Skyrim.
Pros: - 120hz, - crazy vibrant colours, - Tilts and swivels easily, - No tools required to attach the monitor to the base., - Remote thingy for switching settings at the push of a button.
Cons: - Took a bit to get it to turn on… something with the power button maybe?
Summary: This monitor lives up to EVERY word it speaks. I swear this is the best (gaming) monitor I have ever owned or even used. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who has the money saved up and is serious about graphic performance (no so much color). Cons: As you've probably heard if you've been doing research about this monitor, it does have a problem displaying colors accurately.
Overall very very good. A couple of minor irritations, but still an exceptional monitor

Summary: very clear and sharp monitor. I purchased two. Build quality is outstanding, and people who see games and other programs on my system always remark how great they look. Perfect, however, they are not (but not enough to loose a star). The menu system is via soft-touch electro-reactive buttons - it is very easy to activate by just bumping or touching the lower right edge of the panel bezel.
Summary: First thing - I bought this monitor from amazon but in a diffrent way (thats why im not shown as "verified purchase") This monitor is pretty solid all - around. The fast response of the 1ms and 144Hz does makes the diffrence (you notice less blurryness when looking around fast left and right in games) and its looking good.
