    This is a great monitor without breaking the bank for next gen consoles. If you can get your head around missing out on the refresh rate and hdmi 2.1 I think you'll be very happy. If not I think you are expecting too much for less than £200.
    Think the same model was around £160 on eBay few days ago with the 20% off code, but I don't like the bezel

    Both systems offer 1440p now, at that budget id go for a 120hz+ IPS 1440p monitor, i currently have a 27 inch LG Ultragear (GL850 i think) i got for around the same price as this BenQ . its a 1440p IPS panel and 144hz. works brilliant on my PC and my PS5. Darks arent amazing being an IPS but your not going to get an OLED in this price point. It will take a 4k signal and downscale it but with the new update on ps5 just turn on the 1440p setting its much sharper and will allow you to run at a higher refresh rate. I hope this helps you out
    Thanks. So would something like this be better for the extra 20 quid?

    This wouldn't be the best choice for either the series x or ps5 as it's only a 60hz panel. Both systems aim for 120 frames per second so you'd be limited to 60 with this. What is your case usage, games/work/streaming??
    Currently there around 30 games that can run at 120fps and very few if any do that at native 4k pushsquare.com/gui…fps
    Just fyi of those who might break budgets to get a 4k 120hz monitor when it might not be needed (run my gaming pc and ps5 through 4k 60 and looks gorgeous but not a competitive gamer).
    It is of course a very personal thing.

    Amazon really just adds PS5/Xbox to their titles to gain traction?

    IF you dont want to break the bank, most 4k monitors under £200 will be more than fine, including this one ,especially if your doubling up for console and pc. IF you want to be picky about 120hz or hdr then your going to be spending a lot more, see it for what it is. (edited)
    Better off going 1440p and 120hz and HDR

    This is an entry level 4K monitor Average at best. HDR performance is poor.
    HRD basically doesnt exist below £800 unless ur getting an OLED and even then its suppose to hit 1000 nits to be proper HDR10

    I picked one up last night for £80 on FB marketplace. Lad I bought it off was a Graphic designer and keen Xboxer. He loved it but wanted a bigger screen so let this one go….

    I've had two of these for the last 3years. I've use on pc, xbox x and ps5 and it's a great monitor. Great picture.

    I have BenQ 27" GW2765HE with 2560x1440 resolution and I'm quite happy with it (PC work, not gaming).
    Do you think this one would be good as a second display? I'm concerned that 4K resolution would be too high for regular work
