All Benq Discounts, Offers and Sale - June 2018
I have a 720p BenQ and it's brill although I wont use it much anymore due to recent purchase of a 4K Bravia (9000 series)
I went for the Epson 5650 on a recent deal on here. Fantastic picture, no rainbows, 2 year warranty and £39 for a replacement bulb which also carries a 1 year unlimited hour warranty. I may have considered this deal or the Optoma 142 but have family members that are sensitive to Rainbows and headaches sometimes caused but single chip DLP projectors.
Think it was £399 thinking about it...still a good bargain.
That's even more ridiculous (excited)
Yeah I'm looking at upgrading to a 4k at some point myself when I can afford it.
This is 460 on amazon.fr
Heres the rainbow effect of the w1050 caught on camera, goto 7:37, i known its just the camera picking it up, but i think this shows how the colours are produced by the colour wheel , one after the other
i doubt it will cover the cost of a new lamp
The 1070 is brilliant. The 2000 is incredible!
I have a Mitsubishi Fd630u 1080p projector and it's done me for a good few years, colours suck because an oem lamp is over 200 notes, something many don't take into consideration, this deal is hot, a trucking bargain ;-)
But sadly people on here do say it's terrible and vote cold on a 27" 1920x1080 screen just because they think it's terrible. I'd agree with you that 1440 is preferable, especially for serious use, but for an average user this should be fine especially at this super cheap price.
I think people are pretty confusing on this topic. It's not that 1080p on a 27 inch panel is terrible; 1440p is just better. I use the former at work and it's fine. 1440p (or 4k) would obviously be better.
Agreed. I toiled between and 24 and 27 inch monitor a year ago. So glad I went with 27. HD is excellent in it. Call of duty or YouTube all excellent.
Lets hope he does not exceed all your expectations in his Exams..it might cost you!! (party) https://rog.asus.com/articles/gaming-monitors/rog-swift-pg65-big-format-gaming-display-bfgd-120hz-gsync-65-inch-4k-with-hdr/#
Some people will say no, that HD looks terrible on a 27' screen. Ignore them, you would need amazing eyesight to spot the "defects". I game on a 27' HD monitor and have zero complaints, at this price I would buy again!
any one know if you can daisy chain two of these monitors? Plus views on how 2 of these would function for general office work (as opposed to buying a big 34 inch ultrawide) Thanks!
Hi, Thanks op, bought one of these yesterday, used code FREE200 and got free next day delivery. Its now sat on my desk and I am very happy with it. I have moved from a 22inch IPS 1920 X 1080 so obviously quite a difference and a bit of a wow factor. Menus are a bit of a faff but you soon get the idea. Overall if you are looking for a decent 27 inch screen then I would certainly consider this if you don't have £600 to spend on a G-sync 120+mhz one.
"ebay korean monstrosities, the one I used to own broke when the cheap soldering melted and shorted out the circuit board". Agreed. I had the same issue. I had two, one second hand that is still going strong and a brand new that has already has the board replaced then broke again, hence giving up and doing hours of research to now buy this one. Although the Crossovers do are brilliant monitors (well, amazing panels but crappy cheap boards) I have learnt our lesson as getting replacement parts is a nightmare (plus expensive with import taxes). The hubby said I should pop the broken Crossover on ebay this weekend and I may do, as they do have a good following, and there maybe someone out there who can fix it themselves as its too heartbreaking to just bin it. But I am on day 2 now with this monitor and I am very, very impressed.
It's a fantastic panel, great OSD and much better backlight consistency than the crossovers and the like. Unless you have a tin ear the speakers are completely pointless, but having audio does mean they decided to give it a line-in and line-out. Got my pc plugged into displayport, ps4 into the hdmi, then connected the line-out to a line-in on my pc to use my proper pc speakers. Just a heads up though, there have been issues on models with early firmware, using the displayport might be hit and miss at best, depending on your gpu. I had problems briefly with a gtx 970. Couldn't tell you what firmware version this model uses, mind. I got the GW2765HT from Amazon warehouse for £180 with the black friday 20% off. And for those who aren't as tedious and with as much spare time as me, this is probably the best quality 27" 1440p monitor posted so far. Very functional, good refresh rates, fantastic contrast. The colour gamut is very wide. It has 100% sRGB. Very useful colour temperature settings, but pick between using the eye strain settings here or on windows 10 or with flux. With none of the monitor options turned on I found it a bit too bright though. Great stand, full tilt and swivel, although on a small desk you'll wish the stand wasn't so deep so you could push it back further. At this price you can't complain that it's only 60hz. High frame rate high resolution ips panels didn't even exist until the last few years. I'd much rather this than another of those ebay korean monstrosities, the one I used to own broke when the cheap soldering melted and shorted out the circuit board. On a side note, make sure it's set to full range rgb (0-255) in the settings if you want it to look the nicest as a monitor.
Great monitor from the price, bought it not too long ago for just over £200 I believe Great IPS screen and menu is very easy to use
Price now 109.59
can anyone recommend a free desktop software for multiple monitors? I've used Dualwallpapers.exe, but it's not great at rembering when I move around a couple of monitors at work. Thanks
I bought that very monitor (AOC) for my brother in-law at the weekend for £78 from Amazon warehouse. Seemed like it might have been a mistaken price match reduction, as Amazon's price has always been significantly higher. Can't review the monitor as I've only had a few moments with it, but I will say that I wouldn't touch that Chinese seller. They're shipping from China, so import fees are possible, their reviews are bad, and they're undercutting every seller on Amazon.
Thanks for the input. I am inclined to go with the AOC especially since it also has Freesync.
I'd say go for the AOC, looking at the amazon reviews, its got good ratings. On top of that its got a 75hz so that allows for 15 more fps to be displayed if youve got the hardware to back it up. My only concerned with the AOC is that its being sold by a 3rd party seller. If you do order it keep an eye out for blemishes or anything that doesnt feel right.
Is it BenQ GC2870H model any better? only £6 more. What do u think guys? Need it for gaming mostly.
Whats tye refresh rate on this one if any1 know
Given the fact its a TN panel is clearly labelled in the item description why do you feel the need to post that comment??
Recently bought a 27"... regretting it slightly, a bit too big to be honest!... 23.8" (from a 21.5) may have been a better choice, though I do sit quite close...
If only this deal came up 24 hours ago, I ordered the hanns g hq272ppb yesterday
I was actually going to do that, but the set up would look wild in the PC room, got 2 PCs with ultrawides in at the moment and they are next to each othe (about 1.5 ft apart) Unless....hmm... I may move to the shed :D
Where did you read this? All google is coming up with is BenQ 27" GW2765HT models, absolutely nothing for BenQ 27" GW2765HE
So you would think about buying a monitor that might be faulty on arrival or that have know issues?
It’s a VA panel according to the manufacturer https://iiyama.com/gb_en/products/prolite-x2474hs-b1/ 178 degree viewing angles would confirm this also.
Yes it's comparing this monitor which is a VA version against a TN monitor stating it's better I assume
A few websites mention it being TN but the iiyama website states that it is VA, strange.
Then the description is all "VA is better than TN". I think the title writers are confused.
Thank you. I still don't understand how something can be listed as both a TN and VA panel though.
Up to £119.99 now. :(
I have two reserved brother 😏
You planning to make toast out of that monitor?
I mean that if you are buying a pair it will be nice but if you run one with a flat monitor it will not be very nice.
out of curiosity: was it only on sale for 6 hours? ._.
Expired as mow risen to £350 and £500 respectively
Such crap service, the deal was meant to last the day, but around 10:30pm they changed the price mid-payment/checkout. I really don't feel like buying crap from dell when the RRP is £200 more than everyone else. Also really bad at handling contact emails
The problem is the Acer/Asus/AOC and Viewsonic 1440p Gsync IPS monitors all use the same dodgy panel from AU Optronics, unless you get lucky you'll have to send X amount before you finally get one you're happy with.
I’m thinking of getting the 1440p Acer but I’ll get it through amazon in case =/ either that or wait for LGs new monitor since I’ve had no bad experiences with their ips monitors currently using the 29 inch ultrawide which I bought because I was originally gonna go with a vega 64 until their prices became insane for less than gtx 1080 performance so thought what the hell and got a 1080ti xD
£154 now deal expired!
Don't sit 2' away from it, simples!
Will this work with an Xbox?
But she's happy and she doesn't have great eyesight so lower 'full hd' resolutions are fine. If she had a 4k screen she'd crank up the zoom to see the characters and end up with Lego-vision :D I personally think a 5:4 screen or a flipable widescreen is actually the best for a word document but that's another thing entirely.
Text-heavy work is where high resolution monitors shine. The rendering of characters looks much better at 1440/4k, which makes documents far more pleasant to look at. Go and look at how ugly a 1:1 representation of an a4 page looks on her 28" 1080p monitor, and compare that with a 4k panel in Currys, and you'll see the difference.
Just ordered thanks OP!
Ordered mine yesterday and its already arrived and set up (I didn't even pay for next day delivery!!) looks really good compared to my 1080p monitor next to it and can confirm is fully adjustable stand too. great price for a 27" 2k monitor with lots of added features too imo. (party)
Also available from eBuyer for around 4 quid more: https://www.ebuyer.com/753789-benq-gw2765he-27-ips-led-wqhd-monitor-9h-lfmla-tbe
I’m guessing since this is hdmi 1.4 it won’t work with PS4 pro???
Good price, I have ordered the £200 32 inch AOC monitor, I'm skeptical but reviews have been good. Of that fails I might grab this 😁
TN Panel, hahaha we are in 2017 soon 2018
Same price on amazon. https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B01JIQ8OBI/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_api_X1siAbD0ZD27J
Just set mine up. It's WAY better than the 1070 and had zero lamp hours! BARGAIN
sooo like... £162.36 more?
https://www.richersounds.com/tv-projectors/projectors/benq-w2000.html £799 actually NEW
Received mine yesterday, all wrapping still on it, as new. Watched GOTG2 and Rogue One.
Why would would I do that?
Excellent value for money and 75Hz freesync is great
I got 2 of these good monitors XD
Thanks OP, Will this monitor come in Original Retail Box or Frustration Free Packaging ?
I just bought this monitor for £379.99 from Very, neglecting the fact it was QHD 1440p. Videos and streaming stuff through my laptop looks great and it's quick and snappy when playing games. However, I mainly use it for console gaming and as the PS4 doesn't output 1440p natively, it has to upscale 1080p which looks awfully blurry, almost looks 720p. I could probably live with it, if it would have been a cheaper monitor but not for this price. I've bought a 1080p curved Acer instead. ED322Q I think. £130 cheaper too, it was OOS orginally as it was the one I wanted at first so I settled for the Omen instead. Also, for the 3 days I was using it I got terrible eye strain/headaches and I've read others say the same. Something to do with PWM (I think)
Exactly. You can only operate in FreeSync range with cards that don't work with FS. @mazymony Good luck getting a Vega 64 for under £600! A 580 absolutely isn't fine for the majority of mainstream games that have come out in the last two years, c.f. https://www.anandtech.com/bench/product/1721?vs=1868 I also know that because I have an overclocked 290x that's roughly the same performance as a 580. It absolutely isn't good enough to stay in Freesync range at 1440p, even in older games like Borderlands 2. That's also not to mention the problem with most higher end AMD cards where they struggle to maintain fps consistency compared to similar nvidia cards, going back to the lack of LFC on this monitor. I've always bought AMD/ATI going back to the early 00s, but the 3 generations between the 2** series and Vega are a joke. Almost zero progress.
I had this monitor and did some extensive testing on it. It has about 50ms input latency, which is about 3 frames. I was coming from a 10ms ultrawide and I could definitely tell the difference (I'd miss-time my jumps in Dying Light, for example). There's also pretty bad pixel persistence, so fast moving images make everything very blurry. If you can live with these things, it's a good monitor. It also stutters at 75Hz on nvidia GPUs so you have to drop to 60. I personally got a 32 inch Viewsonic 60Hz IPS monitor and it completely blows it out of the water!
You need an AMD card for Freesync. For the latest games, a 64 for max settings but with lighter games a 580 would be fine.
1070, 1080, FreeSync range? :o

Also need to think about games. Currently playing games 5-10 years old. Civ 4/5. Warhammer 40k the original game. Current monitor - The Dell E228WFP’s fast 5ms response time, high contrast ratio and 1680x1050 resolution lets you view images, documents, graphics and video with stunning detail, vivid color and fluid motion. The performance of the Dell 22” monitor is one more reason why Dell is America’s #1 source for flat-panel displays.
Reading between lines from my searches. I have a 6gb 1060 nvida card and a Ryzen 1600. From what I have read the suggestion is the 1060 won't likely reach the 144 FPS with full graphics. Also it's suggested 1080p works better at 24 inches compared to 27 inches. I note John Lewis were selling this for £139 a year ago making me this could be over priced for a 4 year old monitor. I wonder if a 75hz monitor at 24 inches may be better for me. Albeit this looks to be a great monitor. Question is in 5-10 years time will I keep this 1060 card? It's only 1-2 months old.
Depends on your setup. Will it be your only monitor or secondary? If its a single monitor setup I would go for 27". Personally I have a 29" ultra wide for primary and a 24" secondary above which works well for me.
Considering this monitor is now 4 years old not really. Quite strange really. Assuming you only want 1080P. 144hz refresh is nice if you have a decent graphics card. You'll need it for games that run over 60FPS. If you are not bothered about the refresh rate then a cheaper model might do. I am wondering if I should go 24 or 27 inch.
I want it :D
Everyone will tell you that this monitor is pretty low-tier and has terrible colours, which I would have to agree with. If you don't have a really nice IPS monitor already, its really not that noticeable after playing with the settings. But, if you play any competitive FPS games I can't recommend enough the jump to 144hz, which for this price is so worth it!
I managed to get this on prime day for £136 and what an absolute game changer going from a 1920x1080 60Hz monitor to 144Hz. Games look absolute fantastic and worth every penny. Perfect if you are on a budget and couldnt push to a 1440 144Hz Monitor. have some heat OP! Tip: TO get 144Hz oddly you NEED to use the DVI port and change the settings in your graphics card software (mine was Nvidia).
You can still play at 1080p 144Hz, just not with Freesync. But yes, this is a good budget 144Hz monitor that'll definitely be a good purchase for you if you don't want to spend £300+ on a G-sync monitor.
?Is there any point getting this if I have an NVIDIA card?
No, I don't. Check my post history - I post deals on a variety of websites. I'm posting these LaptopsDirect deals because they're good deals (this is the site for it, isn't it?), which I've found through browsing through familiar websites (eBuyer, Amazon, LaptopsDirect, Saveonlaptops, Scan, Novatech etc).
Do you work for laptops direct or something? the prices arent even discounted for black friday. Yet your advertising for them
