5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent quality for a bargain price... 13 Aug 2013
Verified Purchase
I'm very pleased with this monitor.

I'd previously purchased a very mediocre monitor from LG which went back almost straight away. LG 22EN33S 21.5 inch Widescreen LED Monitor

This BenQ model feels well made and sturdy with none of the worrying wobble I experienced with the LG.

The back-light gives an even screen with no contrast or brightness changes at the edges.

Colours are bright without feeling over-cooked and similar but subtly different colours are well reproduced.

Blacks are truly excellent, deep and inky without crushing out detail.

The picture quality was great straight out of the box, without having to fiddle with the settings. In fact, the only adjustment I needed to make was to turn down the brightness as white web pages were almost dazzlingly white.

The only drawback with this monitor is a minor one, and common to many others. The anti-reflective screen has a slight texture to it, but this can only be seen when you get right up close.

All-in-all this is a bargain, high quality monitor which walked all over the more famous LG branded screen.

Highly recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect 21 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase
the monitor was deivered a day before it was estimated which is always good. Its the perfect size for a monitor in my opinion. Ive played my games on it and it looks superb.

The nly thinyg to look out for is if you get pink lines going across your monitor. To fix this ust go to display and change the DPI setting to 120 and that was my problom sorted.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good screen 3 Dec 2013
By Mirola
Verified Purchase
Great size and got it for a good price (82.99)

It has 6 preset settings, but I'm still not sure if I like any of them apart from the regular one.

The discrete buttons on the right side of the screen are easy to operate and the menu is straight forward as you might expect, changing whatever you want.

The quality of the picture is very good (crisp and clear).

The base is stable, but it can only tilt the screen up and down, not left to right (surely it wouldn't be that much more to add?)

Connections are the old VGA and DVI (as good as HDMI, just doesn't carry any sound, but no speakers in screen, so no problem)

The VGA lead and power cord are included.

At the moment, for this price, no other same size screen can beat it. Recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent Monitor 2 Nov 2013
Verified Purchase
Bought this monitor to replace dead Sony monitor that I'd had for about 10 years. Always thought that monitor was good but this is head and shoulders above it. Hard to believe that one costing less than 100 can be better than one that cost 900 at the time. Just goes to show how technology has moved on!!! Would recommend this monitor to anyone.

This is an incredible monitor for the price, it was a massive difference going from my old 17 inch 4:3 monitor to this 21.5 inch 16:9 monitor. It feels like the perfect size, even for gaming, the colours are rich and the image is sharp. The only things I can say I don't like about this monitor is the lack of a HDMI connection and when the monitor first arrived, it was slightly too bright, but that can be turned down easily on the monitor.

This is definitely worth the price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly excellent 30 Jan 2014
I bought this monitor to act as a secondary to my Dell U2711. Of course, it wont be as good as a U2711 (that thing was well north of 1000 when new) but this little BenQ can hold its own to a very surprisingly degree and I am seriously impressed.

Using the colour calibration utility in Mac OSX I've gotten this monitor to look crisp, sharp and quite vibrant (FYI - connected via DVI). Text is smooth and easy to read and there is very little colour banding on smooth gradients. The display isn't completely neutral in colour, however, with greys having a very subtle blue tinge to them and I couldn't seem to fix this with manual settings (reducing blue resulted in a green or red tinge and I simply couldn't find a happy medium) - but again, I'm comparing this side by side with a pro-level monitor and if you were to view the BenQ in isolation, its outstanding and one of the best bargain monitors I've seen - if not THE Best - easily out-gunning more expensive monitors I've used ("HP Elite Display" springs to mind).

One tiny design decision that BenQ has made instantly catapulted this monitor to a 5 star level for me, and that's the arrangement of the ports on the back of the monitor. Many if not every consumer monitor I've seen has the ports facing outwards from the monitor, so cables are inserted at a 90degree angle which forces you to move the monitor away from the wall quite substantially. This BenQ? The ports face DOWN, the stand at the back is also very shallow meaning this thing stands very close to the wall. Since it has VESA mount points on the back you'd easily be able to sit it flush with the wall if you so desired!

Nice monitor. Lightweight - so it doesn't droop on the support arm I have it attached to ( standard VESA mounting holes were fine ). Buttons are fine. Read more

Good value for price. Does is job, you can use it to watch movies and to do random stuff. But I'd avoid it for gaming as the response time is not the best, especially for small... Read more

Does the job, particularly good with graphics but no internal speakers provided. Next time would be inclined to go for a more advanced model that does include speakers
