I have the 27” version of this and it’s stunning!
All BenQ Discounts, Offers and Sale - December 2018
They're never very good mate. I considered that when I was looking at the time, but wanted to use my own speakers anyway.
£20 more and you get the inbuilt speakers
Thank you. It sounded like you were complaining that's all lol
Not sure what you're getting at. My comment was to inform people of the panel as it's not mentioned in the OP.
So please link me a better cheaper panel?
What do you think would be better to get this BenQ in 4k but with large borders and lower hz or the Alienware with 240hz? https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/alienware-25-gaming-monitor-aw2518hf-240hz-freesync-250-delivered-dell-3139240#comment-36528595 I know the Alienware is only 1080p but seems like a much better display with slim bezels and a nicer look. Im not to big on competetive gaming but like to play single player games and also do a lot of web browsing and coding etc, plus it would be arm mounted, just confused which one to go for as both are the same price :D
The biggest reason why IPS is better is actually to do with wider viewing angles but actually in most instances of gaming you want to be straight on anyway. If you want IPS screen that is worth the upgrade you do end up paying more because as previously stated the response time is also slightly lower in general
yeah true my one is 5ms in 4k quicker in game mode when my warrenty runs out i might sell and get 1ms i never had tn thoghe i just heard ips is better
Not many ips monitors have 1ms response times though as far as I’m aware? I guess 4K HDR IPS with that would cost a lot more too!
Has this got any audio out or bypass feature? Given that it doesn't have speakers as above. Struggling to find in the spec et al.
That's "HDMI & Speakers" - click HDMI
showing up as £92 for me
https://uk.camelcamelcamel.com/BenQ-GW2270HM-Eye-Care-Monitor-Flicker-Free/product/B01JIQ82OW Seems £5 down on the price since September. Good spot op :)
I have two of these. Can't recommend them enough. The VA panel has much better contrast and no light leak around edges that you can get with IPS.
i have this monitor. use it for reading, fps gaming, watching tv etc. it's fine for the price imo. has nice enough colour reproduction, blacks are vgood, minimal light bleed, i normally have it set at at 60-70% brightness . the only negative that i've experienced is when you have a website with a black background and white text, scrolling up or down makes the text illegible, believe it's a known effect of some VA panel.
As anyone got this. Please give feedback
Ditto. Went to buy two. Big difference between £153 and £179.98....
Went up to £89. For £74 I would ordered it straight away...
TV's used both passive and active technology. All projectors are active 3d, unless you go down a dual projector passive route. DLP projectors such as this use DLP Link glasses. Generic versions are about £15 a pair. Some projectors support RF glasses, but not this one.
I've had an Optoma HD141x for a few years and wondering if these entry level 4k projectors are worth the upgrade? Anyone have any thoughts between this BenQ and the Optoma UHD300x?
Hilarious... Is it all the same as TV tech in terms of the 3D element.
Actually the life expectancy of these bulbs is really good nowadays. This one is rated for 4000 hours, which is 2000 films at an estimate of 2hrs per film. If you were to watch one film per day, that would be over five years. At a more reasonable rate of, say, 3 films per week, that's over 10 years, by which time I think you're probably wearing out any of the other components as much as the bulb. My personal experience: got a projector with 4yr warranty; it's lasted 7+ years and still going strong until I retired it. Meanwhile, I've upgraded to my second projector (HD) and loving it. Excellent for movies and gaming.
??? Go and check by urself how much a projector lamp replacement cost. Maybe it's not 'the' most expensive but it's the FIRST thing you get to replace if you want to keep your projector :)
Actually the DMD is the most expensive component to replace =) On the subject of this projector's DMD chip.... this projector isn't technically 4k, it's 2k with diagonal offsetting.
Totally disagree! Its a lot to spend and warranty and lamp life are very important
No way for used. I would go RS £1k with 6yrs. I’m holding out for one, hope cyber Monday sees better deals as BF has been very disappointing so far
why isn't this deal hot? madness
1080p monitors are still being used by 99.9% of businesses I would think.
Good price for 27" screen
This is a great Monitor just brought two myself. The EW3270U is a VA Panel and 4K HDRmonitor as decribed on box's website and of course (y) , i double checked on the BenQ website before purchasing. (y)
Unless you wanted FreeSync.
I bought my current monitor, used, from an I.T. guy who'd upgraded to this. Philips 40" VA Curved Monitor (Glossy White) 4K It looked beautiful. It's a tenner cheaper and bigger than this BENQ. I'd pick the Philips between the two.
I mean, VA has its own problems. VA's can still have backlight bleed, have poor viewing angles(possibly a concern at 32" if you're sitting at a desk), and have worse motion performance than IPS on average(regardless of what the response time specs suggest). Not saying it's a bad choice, just keep in mind VA isn't inherently superior for PC's and PC gaming. It's gonna be a matter of compromise and preference.
https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07BVXGBHT/ref=twister_B07G9S4B7N?_encoding=UTF8&psc=1 There's also this Samsung. It's possible that they're both using the same panel, honestly. Both 32", 4k, VA, 60hz. And input lag isn't really gonna be a problem on pretty much any monitor. Even the 'worst' ones are almost always still more than fine for gaming.
It depends on what you want to use the panel for. Generally TN is better for gaming due to it's response time and frame rate. IPS is a better all round panel but slower response time and generally more expensive. VA again is better for colours but more expensive and really slow response times. Unfortunately there is no perfect panel at the moment and you have to choose what matters most for your usage.
too band its a TN panel.
It's a TN panel.
Is this a TN or IPS panel?
Anyone have experience with this and ps4 pro?
Shame you missed the 563 price but all good
Yeah thanks again, I was actually a little cheeky too as it came with a 2 pin plug and not a 3 pin (wasn't much of an issue, as I'm a real man I have a bag full of leads that belong to nothing!) But Amazon gave me a £30 partial refund for it.
Glad you enjoying it
Come on then, who is this? (flirt) https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BenQ-TK800-True-4K-UHD-HDR-Home-Entertainment-Projector-DLP-3000-Lumens/143009727672?epid=27024448852&hash=item214c0b44b8:g:6fIAAOSwa3lb5z3g:rk:2:pf:0 It's certainly not mine, I've been enjoying mine! Watched GotG2 last night on it, already had the 4K disc and had it running through my Xbox One S
Believe_Me you got a good deal glad to have got some people here a Bargain :D
BS? Hmm I have email trials from BenQ showing quite the contrary, but oh well. I got refunded in the end (from the retail outlet, NOT BenQ) as after testing they agreed there was a fault with the monitor, so I can't say fairer than that. As for down voting your deals, I didn't?! Curious thinking though haha. How bizarre. I'll trail through all this persons deals and downvote them all, that'll teach him!! (lol)
re-read you comments my previous comments still stand and read my comments from the start of my account only saw one that could possibly be classed as "bad mouthing computer hardware" and that was for a gigabyte graphics card... a company that is notorious for bad customer service and components dying quickly, many YT reviews had had mobos and Graphic card that have die or had things on the die with light testing and less than moderate use. Worlds away from spreding BS about a good company (in this case BenQ), I simply echoed the complaints that many people, including prominent tech influcer who have no reason to lie about Gigabyte.
Let's sort this out - what headphones did you use with the monitor? Or, what speaker system did you use? Also, what volume options did the monitor or your speakers have? Try having a real discussion with useful information, not just shouting about not liking the sound.
Good price, but at this size you'd really be hoping for 1440p minimum - 1080p is pushing it, but not the end of the world. If it has a VESA mount, it's a bit better a deal imo.
Lol that was my initial thought to before i went to his home. He had just got a 40" tv and was going on about how he liked gaming on that. I did feel bad for ripping him off and wanted to tell him the difference but on the other hand, it was for 50 quids
Lad, *burglar. ;)
I got this one from a lad for 50£ with 11months warranty. Its been over a year now and still doing the job.
ok for i5 2500k and R9 280X?
Think you're getting confused between the horizontal frequency (30-89KHz) and vertical frequency (50-75Hz) on these monitors. Note that both the HT and HE have 50-75Hz listed under vertical frequency on the BenQ website. I suspect that they're both 60Hz monitors at the native resolution though.
Thank you both sincerely, this is mostly for admin work, and then limited photography stuff so colour reproduction is important, and then watching videos. It seems I can and should save the difference and buy this one. Box seem to have a fairly decent returns policy, are they well regarded? It is troubling how nearly everything I buy is from Amazon these days!
shall give it a go, thanks!
Yeah - higher frequency range allows for more refreshes per second, allowing you to have a higher frame per second count. I must admit 89FPS is a bit of an unusual number but so is 165hz I guess. Either way as long as you unlock the frames in your games and allow it to go over the 60FPS softcap and you do receive up to 89FPS then you should notice a big difference in how fluid your games play.
Cheers @Amar_Nam I'll post a picture when it arrives 😁 (y)
I know the price has sadly gone up but to answer you question it's 60hz.
@dimav83 You are correct. It just looks washed out to be when I did get my Dell for a dual monitor setup. I'll keep an eye out for a 28-32 inch IPS panel at 1440.
@Matt_Meaders Let us know what you thinks. It's a cracking price! Well done for grabbing one, before the price jump.
Price has gone up
I have 2 benq gl2450 s they are a great monitor 75 quid on eBay used new for just over 100 now I think
VESA mounting holes allow you to easily attach the monitor to an arm like this one (of which I have several)... https://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B01FRWONKI/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o09_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 You can get a VESA adapter plate for a Benq monitor from Amazon; however they're £30, so it would be cheaper and neater to find monitor with VESA built-in.
For the price it's good, but if you are using to do office work you can see pixels easily, get something smaller or with better resolution
Nice price have some heat
Its pretty decent. I got it last year from a guy for 50£ who rarely used it for a week. He got a better offer on a bigger tv so didnt bother about it. 127 is good too
That is an absolute bargain for someone!
Ive bought "good" and recieved new.
I'm not saying this about used in general, my comment was regarding this particular grade - "acceptable". With others being "as new" or "good" or "very good".
If it's returned it hardly used, most likely packaging reasons is the state ? Think you guys jumped to alot of conclusions as it's not that accurate to grading
Ive bought used stuff from warehouse and its been brand new.
