5.0 out of 5 stars Great display, fabulous service from Amazon 26 July 2011
By Andy C
Bought this off Amazon after doing my research, arrived after only 2 days on Super Saver delivery. Everything was good then I noticed one small dead pixel in the bottom right quarter of the screen. Once I'd seen it couldn't take my eyes off it. Knowing that Monitor manufacturers often won't replace screens for just one pixel, I thought I may have to accept it. But, I emailed Amazon and asked their policy. Next day I had an email saying a replacement screen had been sent - first class. Sure enough it arrived the next day, and it's fine and I'm highly delighted with it. Amazon even provide a link for free return carriage to be arranged.

4.0 out of 5 stars Re: VESA Mount, MB Pro, watching videos 13 Jun 2011
By Mark
The monitor is exceptionally bright and clear, and I am quite surprised that the quality is as high as it is, given the low price.

I'm using this as a second monitor with a 2010 MacBook Pro. As others have written, you need to buy a DVI cable (for example: Belkin F2E4141b10-DD - DVI Flat Panel Replacement Cable) separately, which is why it only gets 4 stars. It comes with a VGA cable, which is too low-resolution for my needs, but may be OK for others. If you have a recent Mac Laptop, you'll need an adapter, e.g. Apple Mini DisplayPort to DVI adapter cable by Neet® - ( for Unibody MacBook - Pro - Air etc. )). Be advised that the DVI plug on the back of this monitor is DVI-D (dual link), so check this against your own computer/laptop output plug. (if you don't know the difference between DVI plugs, google 'DVI' and the wikipedia page will give you examples of the different types.) VGA is VGA, so if you are only going to use this input, you'll be covered by what's in the box. The power lead to the monitor is pretty standard length -- no problems there.

I am taking advantage of the VESA mounting capabilities of this monitor, and have attached it to a standard VESA mount Cantilever LCD Monitor TV Arm Bracket Wall Mount with Swivel and Tilt (also bought on Amazon). If anyone else is considering using the VESA mount, be prepared to fight a bit with the stand when you are removing it -- BenQ has made this a little more difficult than it needs to be, but I can't dock them a star for this one-time frustration.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprised by the amazing quality 2 Jun 2011
By Silph
So, I was looking for a cheap-ish screen to use as my main screen in my room. Both for my computer and my Playstation 3.

And it is awesome, let me say why:
I love the aspect ratio, I come from a 16:10 screen and 16:9 became my instant favorite
It is HDCP compatible, so a £[] DVI-HDMI cable from amazon makes playing with my playstation 3 just the best
LED backlight, it consumes a lot less than my previous screen. which was smaller at 20"
the presets are actually nice, I usually set it to eco while browsing the web because the LED is probably too bright to use with most websites with white backgrounds

it comes with a VGA cable, but I advise you to get a DVI cable or a DVI-HDMI. digital is great, you get no distortion at all

5.0 out of 5 stars Terrific monitor at a great price 25 Feb 2011
By Steve D TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Verified Purchase
I got this monitor to replace an ageing Benq 17" and I am blown away by it - which is probably unsurprising when my old monitor had a maximum resolution of 1280x1024 and this one is 1920x1080!

Installation was simple - I am running Windows 7 64 bit and, at first, it went with a generic plug & play monitor driver. The disc that came with the monitor was not recognised for my operating system, but I got around this by going to Device Manager --> Monitors, then right-clicking on the 'Generic P&P Monitor' --> Properties and choosing 'Update Driver', then locating the driver folders on the cd, and the system did the rest. Perhaps a little too cumbersome a process but it worked and I am now running the latest drivers for the monitor.

In terms of performance, it took me a while to sort out the user settings for colour, contrast, brightness etc but I am now really happy with it. Most of the pre-defined settings aren't great, apart from 'Eco', which is good for when I'm working, runs at 30% less power (apparently) and is easy on the eyes. I use my own user settings for playing games. I've tried Crysis Warhead, Starcraft II and World of Warcraft, all on the highest settings, and they look fantastic on this monitor, crisp and clear, with great depth of field. The colour and contrast are outstanding.

For £[] I think this monitor is an absolute steal. The image is brilliant. For the price, you forsake a little in terms of the stand, but generally it looks good, too. I really can't fault the quality of the monitor, although no doubt you'd get even better quality if you were prepared to pay more. For those on a budget, though, I can't recommend it highly enough.

5.0 out of 5 stars An excellent monitor 22 Sep 2010
Verified Purchase
A great, clear monitor. It was one of the only true HD (1080 high) monitors within the price range which was a key point.

The width of the monitor makes it like a double width screen - you can easily have half the width for one application and the other half for another app.
