Looks a fantastic deal for a good gaming monitor. Other places are around £139 and this offer includes FREE Delivery. Granted better monitors with 1MS response times but still a great price and 27 inches!.

First post so hope it's recieved well.

In the process of sending back the 24" version of this. Spent ages tinkering with screen settings, but couldn't get anything close to as good as my Benq, so ordered another Benq to replace it.

What BenQ model did you get?

RL2455HM from here
I've been happy with my GL2460HM, so if I'm not as impressed with the RL2455HM, I'll get another GL2460HM.

it's not real gaming monitor without 144Hz isn't?

Nope, it's just a cheap, overdriven TN panel with gaming branding slapped on it.

So glad to see people posting this now as well as just me.

There is nothing 'gaming' about this screen, and the 2ms claim will be a lie. See TFTCentral for examples of the 'true' ms of panels.
Even the best "1ms" panels vary between 1 and 4ms with insane levels of overshoot (sometimes into the 60% range) , and when you turn overdrive off, the many panels have a response time goes to a range closer to between 2 and 18ms.

Ms claims are just a lie. Ignore them and get the true values from people who have measured them.

I was looking at this the other day but I think this one is better:

Why is it better? The ms claims means nothing. It's likely to be the same panel as the one the OP has posted, with even more overdrive applied. There are not many 27" 1080p TN panels in production right now, and all of them are pretty crap.

That blurb though...

It's also more expensive.

Including mount support? Stand support or wall mount support?

I got this monitor when it first came out and still have it now. its not a bad monitor but its really difficult to get the colours right. the whites in games were always to bright.

Worth spending more to get an IPS screen if you can.

Wasn't this £120 the other day on ebuyer?

Yes and its £125 now on scan today only but add extra £10 for delivery.

What BenQ model did you get?


Just set it up. Way better than the Asus, and slightly cheaper.

75Hz? Hardly worth bothering with if you have a semi decent PC

Could someone recommend a decent gaming monitor then?

wouldnt go for this personally, 1080p at 27" doesnt look good!

It's £129.95 on Overclockers also

Ordered this for my 7 year old son. He's getting a computer nearer to christmas - so this will be perfect for his room. Like the fact it has two HDMI also for him to hook up a console, plus the bonus of internal speakers.

While i have a 1440p Dell IPS" monitor and wouldn't have anything less than that, actually now debating a gsync one once they hit 4k at higher hz... For my son a larger monitor at 1080p is perfect, also once he gets older this can just become a normal TV with HDMI imports and internal speakers. Say for the kitchen or guest room with an Amazon Fire stick in it.

​Could you link to your Dell monitor?

Monitor arrived yesterday - Son has his Xbox 360 hooked upto it while he waits for his computer to be finished off by me. Speakers aren't to bad and the quality is great :).
