5 stars for FPS gaming; 3 stars for everything else
13 November 2013
Summary: Let me start by saying I'm coming from a $1200 30" HP zr30w IPS monitor. This monitor is designed for competative FPS gaming and 3d gaming and my old "30 is designed for a business workstation/photo editing.
Summary: Gave it a 5 egg because lets face it, BenQ + 144Hz + Amazing build quality(Minus one of the touch buttons) = the best gaming experience.
Pros: 144 Hz 24" No dead or stuck pixels Great mounting mechanism Sleek design Nice menu/settings Overall amazing monitor
Cons: Takes about 2 seconds slower to come on from display turning off One of the touch button's don't work for some reason? But I'm using the control module that comes with it(High suggested as it is so much faster to go through the menu)
Finally truly satisfied with a gaming monitor purchase

Summary: I truly love this monitor. Having bought two cheaper, though well reviewed, Asus monitors (the VX238H and VS238H-P) prior, this was a major upgrade. Neither of the two monitors mentioned were bad, especially considering the price, but I had solid, though separate issues with each.
Pros: This is just an all around fantastic monitor. Color (for a TN panel), black levels and overall performance is exactly what you are looking for. No ghosting to be found and absolutely no discernible input lag.
Cons: None to speak of. This is the first monitor which I have been wholly happy with.
Summary: The s switch for scrolling through the monitor menu could be a little longer, but no huge deal there.
Pros: 144Hz, color looks great out of box did not have to mess with any options on the monitor. Assembles really easy with instructions anyone can understand, 1ms response, and for a 24" the screen is bigger than i thought. My games, movies, videos, and desktop has never looked this good.
Summary: Overall, this is a great monitor I would recommend.
Pros: Great monitor over all. Nice sturdy build, great colors, inputs. All cables included.
Cons: I had the exact same issue as another reviewer - monitor would not power on. Flashing power light, and that's it. This was my third of these monitors, and this is the only one this happened to. Newegg is overnighting me a replacement, so it's not a big deal.
Summary: Other than pros/cons, I knew what I was buying and got exactly what I wanted. I moved down from a 32' HDTV (which caused the headaches when playing games), so if I could have made a change to this purchase, I might have gotten a bigger screen. It's taking time to get used to it.
Pros: The reason I got it was for the Lightboost with 120hz as the blur when turning your camera, even in MMO's hurt my eyes. I can say this has alleviated about 99% of the blur that caused me pain when playing. I can actually stare at an object and move my screen and see practically no blur, it's amaz...
Cons: I might have a faulty product, but the touch 'buttons' aren't very responsive. I have to attempt touching them multiple times for them to work. I can work around it, and it's annoying, but I don't want to pay the shipping or wait to get it replaced; possibly getting the same thing if they're all ...
Summary: I have tried multiple power cables, and multiple different connections to my PC (HDMI, dual link DVI, display port). The monitor will not turn on. The power light will only turn on when the bezel is touched near the light.
Summary: The BIGGEST issue concerning TN panels is the color calibration and contrast. I'm writing this review right now about 1 minute after setting this up straight out the box and i can't notice any difference other than resolution (coming from a 720/60hz).
Pros: Sturdy and everything you expect in terms of build quality and size. All of your research will come up justified once you set this up. S-switch is awesome for those who need the "click" buttons vs. smart touch buttons. This monitor offers both. The adjustable stand is a plus and so is the near mi...
Pros: Looks great and came in excellent packaging. Also included all cables.
Cons: WON'T TURN ON! Tried multiple inputs. Other 30" Dell Cinema Display is fine. Tried plugging into mobo dvi as well. No Avail... White power light continues to blink momentarily... Not sure what to do.
