Excellent screen

may as well buy the version without speakers. I paid under £100 for that one not too long ago.

Not sure fi that one comes with HDMI, I bought the version without Speakers or HDMI. It would have been used much more had I got this one.

Bought this monitor a few days ago, had it plugged in yesterday. Can't say there's much at fault with it, although my previous primary monitor (now is my secondary) was the BenQ E2220HD which has one more HDMI port and a built-in 4 port USB 2.0 hub and was a LCD type at a size of 21.5", other than that both monitors are the same.

To compare, the LCD monitor packs more of a saturated display while lacking in displaying a natural and clean white colour. The LED monitor on the other hand, produces a much natural display of colours, although it's less vibrant (might be due to a few calibrations I've missed, upon comparing.) but for Photoshop use, it's a step forward in having a natural display of colours as it would prevent any misunderstanding of what the final finished product should look like once printed out.

Other than that, I am quite satisfied with this purchase. Although, had I had a bigger budget, I would have opted for a 27" 2160p/1440p LED monitor instead of this one. Great price and 2 years warranty. (Their customer service is good and efficient, I had the E2220HD sent for RMA within a month of it's 2 year warranty expiring. Had a replacement with little hassle.)

i can confirm this is an awesome monitor for gaming and the sound is not bad at all.

Usually dispatched within 1 - 2 months.

Would of bought it if it wasn't for this. Is there anywhere else with a decent spec gaming monitor, for roughly the same price or maybe a bit more?

Edit: Ebuyer have the same monitor in stock for 2 pound more. Saves you waiting the 1-2 months though.

Bought mine from amazon and it got delivered within 3 days.

Great deal, would definitely purchase if I had the spare cash. As said above, available on Ebuyer for 199.99 and is in stock.

fwiw I believe these are the ones used for the StarCraft ][ games, heat added!

£199.99 or £119.99 ?? oO

Tempted.... just sold my two AOC 23" Slim LED monitors to up to 2x 24" monitors... already bought a samsung one for a bargain £70 second hand... might treat myself to one of these for the main monitor!

Hmm when I click on the deal, it redirects to me a different page, "offer listing", wich one is the real deal?

Can buy it cheaper here and get £15 off if you sign up to 1 month of 'Which' online for £1

Absolutely great monitor though!

would prefer the GW Version as thats a va model and 8bit colour depth (no frame rate control)

Almost same price on ebuyer and you can get it in 5 working days... cold

Amazon does this all the time, it never takes that long. Worst time was when I had to wait about 5 days.

Ebuyer is 119.99 with free next day delivery. Bought mine with Ebuyer as was a bit sketchy over the 1 to 2 month wait.

Not sure whether to get this or not , wondering if someone could help , ive got this for my 360 : http://i.ebayimg.com/t/Audio-Video-HDMI-AV-Cable-Gaming-Cables-For-XBOX-360-Bulk-Packaging-/00/s/MTI0OFgxMjQ4/z/JcAAAOxyhTFSSCVz/$T2eC16FHJIgFHR,VOjYJBSSCVy4P2Q~~60_57.JPG for my senheissers

Also when i had an LG 23 inch IPS before (had to sent it back due to backlight fault), my games were laggy on my PC (never tested on xbox) but on my current 15 inch PC monitor it was fine

Please help

Cheers

Alan

15" monitor would have had a much lower screen resolution compared to the 23", hence the lag. What graphics card are you using?

Could never go back to a TN panel, especially not at that price.

Thanks

What's the dead pixel policy on this? I just got a really expensive Sony tv for my parents and it has two dead pixels. I can't believe the problem is still around in 2013

Dispatched :-)

"Would HAVE bought it" !!

I've three of these, excellent screens.

Two off these hooked up to an xbox, and gaming pc?

Before we rush to buy this model, there is a £10 more expensive version, for £127.93 (down from £163) which has a few more features:

- headphone jack
- slightly weaker speakers (1W x 2 compared to 2W x 2)
- cheaper to run at 23W (compared to 42W)
- reading mode (whatever it means)
- eco mode
- windows 8 compatible
- slim bezel

is it not better idea to spend £10 more?
Compared both on BenQ website.

That model is only £119 on Dabs. it's listed as GL2460HM but there's no mention of HDMI, they seem to be using the description of the lesser GL2460. Good reason to argue if they send out a non-HDMI monitor!

Plus, on the DABs website it says 5ms where it should be 2ms (as per BenQ's website). If DABs can get the basic details right I would stay away from this website and buy from Amazon or some other place.

Even bette, tried cancelling mine but didn't go through. But still £10 less and don't think I'll be using the speakers. Slim and eco would have been nice but oh well

On the other side, Christmas is coming so I keep thinking that the deals should get better in a month or so, is it worth waiting?

Didn't see the point in ordering last night, but this morning its gone down a little.

The GL2450HM also comes with headphone jack, I know this as I own one.

just got it, hmm well it's a nice monitor just had to tweak a few settings and adjust the brightness. no screws just lock in mechanism which is fab as I had it out of the box and on my table in 2 minutes. packaging is perfect, easy to open and easy to remove. overall picture quality is about right for monitors in this price range, had a chance to check out the benchmark with bioshock infinite and it looked really good. perfecy for me as I have a small desk so needed something that could fit on my table it looks great, didn't see much ghosting just remember to turn on that ama in the menu whixh was relatively easy to navigate

come with hdmi dvi and audio 3.5mm slot, using it with my 7970. haven't tried fully but will uodate back with pics in the evening

I am actually thinking of paying slighly more and getting the one with VA screen, the Benq GW2460HM, with no flickering, has better native contrast and DCR, slighlty longer response time (4ms). Currently costs £149.94, is it worth to pay extra £30 for VA flickering free screen?

The GL2450HM is "Flicker-free". However, I understand this term is quite loose.

True it is, it wasn't clearly specified in the monitor's spec, hence my mistake.
