price viewing angle
nice monitor for a decent price, va panel

Experience: 6 Months
Good screen quality
Great monitor for the money - the screen quality is exceptionally great for the amount of money you pay. Would recommend for a quick grab on sale

Experience: 2 Years
Contrast, Low input lag, Value for Money, Color, Vastly superior to similar priced TN.
fixed stand, 60hz, color richness, speed
I have it's predecessor GW2250 which is pretty much identical. For the money, it's a really good monitor. It can go very bright and the high contrast is amazing. There is none of that TN/IPS glow that makes shadows and black look gray. Blacks look inky jet black and shadow detail is very good making black themed web pages really pop. I really enjoy watching movies on this little monitor because of the realistic contrast and detail in dark scenes. I'm also an avid FPS player and this monitor will work for that but you have to learn to look with your eyes more and not pan around at high speed because the motion blur is quite noticeable and it did hurt my gameplay. The overall color is pleasing but reds and greens lack the richness of a good IPS and have a sort of dark orange and yellowish feel to them.

Great colour/contrast
haven't noticed any lag
Size/Price is alright
senseye messes it up when turned on
no 75hz or greater for 1080p
I don't know what to say.
This is the best monitor I've owned in the last 20 years easily. I really wish it came with 120hz though. But considering the manufacture and price I got it. 60hz is fine.
Colours don't seem to bleed
haven't experienced much eye fatigue with these monitor either.
When I turn on senseye, I can noticed two panels(it messes up the contrast/whites badly)

Experience: 3 Months
So far im impressed. Very nice colors and clear. First Benq. Time will tell if its rock solid or not.
during wake-up shows 'Input DVI' longer than is necessary, can't find a setting to turn it off.
If you're looking for a great monitor - this is a must by! The screen feels high quality, and is worth all of the money I spent on it. Games look a lot more vibrant with this screen compared to my Samsung monitor. After using BenQ, I will never go back.

clear, sharp resolution
inaccurate color
color is not accurate, it's far too red. all of the blue hues are purple. the screen is slightly blurry... I guess it's not bad, but there's better monitors around.

Great Price. Looks good.
only DVI and VGA inputs. Stand is awful.
For a budget monitor this is pretty decent. It's bright, and responsive, although the colour may not be super accurate.

The stand is pretty bad. you get about 10 degrees of tilt. no height, swivel, etc.
