VA blown away!!!,
This review is from: BenQ EW2730V 27 inch LCD Monitor (VGA, DVI-D, HDMI, 1920 x 1080, 3000:1, 8ms, 300cd/m2) (Accessory)
I sold my Asus VH242H as I just couldn't handle the light bleed and colour washing with poor viewing angles.
I was going to replace it with the Asus VE278Q until a read a few reviews and someone recommended this monitor, I looked into it and the new VA panel (replacement for MVA) was much sharper and had better colours than the TN panels. This monitor had more functionality than the Asus and supposedly a better panel, so for the extra £20 odd I decided to take a chance.
And thanks goodness for that, not only was the screen better than expected but the picture quality is amazing, and the colours hardly change across viewing angles (I have this on a swivel arm and watch movies in bed sometimes).
I believe BenQ has Asus beat when it comes to the 27" multi purpose monitors.
The only reason I'm giving this a 4 star is the resolution, max 1900x1080, on a 27" it's just too little, I have to sit a fair bit further away from the monitor now, but for the price I don't think it's a problem really.
Gaming on this is superb, I've been playing BF3 and DeusEx off my PS3 and they both look much better than on the Asus.
