    Ok i am giving this a 5 star not because it is perfect in every single way as nothing ever is! Because of its value for money, build quality, features and picture quality.

    - Excellent reduced blue levels. Now if you are using a monitor for more than 3 hours a day this is a definite plus as it offers an excellent range of reduced blue light levels which is very kind for your eyes.
    - Central rear ports. Easy access and tidy as your wires hang straight down behind the neck of the monitor
    - Awesome non reflective matte finish with excellent viewing angles.
    - Great non flicker refresh rate which makes my second HP monitor look awful in comparison
    - No crazy auto adjustments which i have seen on other monitors - it just works!
    - 4mm edge to the monitor, not as minimal as pictured but still a super slim bezel
    - Very sturdy and a perfect weight to not be too heavy to move but not too light to wobble around.
    - Really nice finish to the back and front. Looks really high quality
    - Very solid in its build
    - small power pack
    - very low power

    Cons (these are minor, if they were a problem i would lower the rating)
    - The phone stand is a little pointless in my opinion, if it had an integrated iphone charger i would use it! but i just forget its there.
    - Integrated speakers, all monitors with integrated speakers are poor, even £1000+ LED TVs have poor integrated speakers compared to what you get with a simple 2.1 or 5.1 sound system. I'm happy that the option is there as many monitors don't offer anything but don't be blown away by the sound quality, Its ok at best - there is no bass and the channel quality is basic so just buy some cheap speakers with a sub.

    I received my EW2440L monitor today from a different website,lets start with the biggest bad point,first it came with wrong type of mains power lead to the monitor power adaptor ie came with your standard 3 pin PSU/Monitor mains lead rather then C5 cloverleaf mains lead (3 pin but rounded pins)which is what the AC power adaptor needs,lucky for me I had one lying around from my Samsung laptop ,you can get them from Amazon or Ebay for about £1.60 to 3 quid.

    I advised Amazon to check that the right type of mains power leads come in the box for future customers,if not report the issue to BenQ.

    Screen quality is excellent,I calibrated mine via SpyderExpress calibration tool.Box does come with HDMI and VGA cables.
    Blacks are great so are viewing angles,colours are good as well.No dead pixels on mine but I paid for pixel check.

    I have done some gaming and had no issues even with FPS games online with AMVA set to high.

    Do note no DVI connection on monitor,only HDMI,VGA,HDMI-MHL.

    Monitor controls are touch type,make sure you set AMA to high for gaming(default setting) and reduce brightness from 100 default setting(way too high).
    I find brightness around 30 to 35 and contrast 40 to 50 better via HDMI.

    Overall happy with mine .
    Hope this quick review helps.

    Its a pretty huge monitor, which is both good and bad, I upgraded to this mostly for gaming on consoles (360 and ps4/xbox one)

    I tried out some of the competition here are my opinions:-

    Dell 2414H - Low contrast in comparison, I noticed no improvement in responsiveness, side by side ANYONE would choose the Benq, Dell looked grey and washed out the colours on the Benq looked slightly different but still beautiful, but the constrast and blacks are BEAUTIFUL! The Dell has a very nice stand and looks great when turned off, but I'd rather have a great picture when turned on.

    AOC I2757FM - Again low contrast, very similar to dell, beautiful looking monitor(bezel and stand) but the picture wasn't a patch on the Benq, no movement in stand(same as Benq).

    Now on to the Benq EW2740L.

    I keep saying this but you really have to see it, the contrast is beautiful, it makes games and movies look great, I guess if you are going to do office work any of the monitor would be fine, but then again so would any cheap monitor. If you play games of watch films then the contrast and black level are important (colour is too but them are all great for colour) The Benq is far superior for colour or contrast and you WILL notice it. I have tried and tried to notice problems with response times but as long as you avoid the AMA Premium setting I see no artefacts or ghosting, my skills in COD and Battlefield have improved, everything looks beautiful and my photos look more natural and rich than them did with my old monitor.

    If you want a monitor at this time and only want a 1080p resolution (console gaming or tv and movies) then this is the one, it might be worth waiting for another year it get even better response times but the contrast, colour,price and responsiveness/lag here are a pretty amazing combination if you have £210 to spend.

    I decided on the 24inch model after a long drawn out think about 24 vs 27. Real glad I went for the 24; it's just the right size for my desk. Picture quality with Mac and PS3 are superb at this price-point and I highly recommend this model! Must note that the first 2 sent had the wrong plug, but spoke with Amazon on the phone, they deducted 10% off and i just bought the cloverleaf plug from a local shop for £4.99. Also called BenQ and it seems like a dodgy batch was sent to Amazon... Couldn't drop a star for this though, as the monitor is just what I was looking for and great value for money.
