5.0 out of 5 stars A quality product, 15 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It seems to be a lucky dip when you buy this monitor off Amazon as to which firmware version you get, I bought mine just this month it arrived Saturday 12 July 2014, it is V1. This is not a problem for me, but if it is for you I would suggest buying direct from BenQ.

Now, I gave this 5 stars because this monitor is a beautiful quality product, easy to set up, the picture is never going to great out of the box, but with a little adjusting the quality of the picture is pleasantly surprising for a TN panel monitor, clear and vibrant. Although it is marketed as a pure gaming monitor (I am a gamer which is why I chose this) it does a lot of other things well. I will update when I have used it a few months.

My present set up is:
Refresh rate 120 hertz
Brightness 85
Contrast 66
Dynamic contrast off
colour temp user mode Red 84 Green 87 Blue 97
Picture mode standard
AMA High
Sharpness 6
Gamma 3
Black equalizer if used 1

Smaller than I thought it would be, but does the job and looks well made.
Instant relieve for my wrist, I am a gamer so there is a lot of movement and friction against desktop when using the mouse.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Film, 4 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Mist [DVD] (DVD)
I admire Frank Darabont for not being afraid to buck the trend of happy ending films, the film industry is awash with them, bad things happen in life it's a sad fact, we make decisions along our journey in this world and we have no idea what the outcome is going to be. The ending to this film left me reeling for quite some time.

5.0 out of 5 stars Enjoying this game, 16 Feb 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dragon Age 2 (PC DVD) (DVD-ROM)
Because of the negative reviews I was hesitant buying this game but I am pleasantly surprised, I am enjoying playing this game. DAO is a great game of course, but if you are comparing this to DAO (which is hard not to do I know) you are going to be disappointed. Try playing and judging it for it's own merits. Also so far it hasn't crashed.
