Review this product
There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I was impressed with the price and the built when I first got it, now I regret not spending more to get a better quality monitor.
Easy to use menu and another good entry level monitor from BenQ, couldn't be more happier.
Would purchase again from BenQ in the future.

I have 2 small cons, and they aren't even big. The screen could be a tiny bit brighter, so that during bright summer days it stands out a bit more. But it's perfect in the dark and again not even really an issue. And the speakers are quiet and tinny. But to be honest. I don't care, I have speakers plugged in for that exact reason, but the fact it has them at all is still really nice. Dropping from 2k to 1080p I thought I'd notice too, but to be honest, after adjusting the picture and sharpness, I can honestly live with it. The colour depth is lovely and I'm just impressed. I'm tempted to get a second and have a dual monitor display. The stand can be a tiny bit wobbly, but as long as you're not banging around again, it's firmly supported and not a problem.
Cable management is a nice after thought. Supports Displayport. Nice matte screen finish. Anti scratch surface (I have a pet hate of shiny surfaces).
Screen tearing isn't even that bad, maybe running at 84hz helps. But I'm enjoying gaming on this and I've tried 2 different gaming high refresh rate monitors before this!
If you're in doubt go for it.
** Update 2 Weeks later **
I’ve decided to sadly drop this to 4 stars. All the pros I’ve mentioned still stand strong. I ordered a 2nd monitor and now I have an excellent duel monitor setup. However viewing a black screen I have noticed the backlight bleed along the top and left hand side are considerably more noticeable now especially when warm - and I’m pretty picky. However, at this price, and since backlight bleed is obviously unavoidable when it comes to an IPS screen I feel it’s a good compromise. But just worth mentioning.
** UPDATE AGAIN IN 2020 ** - I bought the first two a few years ago. I recently settled for a 3rd monitor to accommodate my gaming/multitasking and work. I've placed the new monitor in the middle and the two previous monitors either side, I have to say, I'm impressed. Over time the backlight bleed in the top left corner of my original two I would say got a tiny tiny bit worse, but not catastrophically, and it didn't ruin the image for me at all (I nit-pick so I do seek it out when I'm presented with a black screen in some sort of weird hope that it's rectified itself which of course is wishful thinking). But this new monitor has a definite improvement in BLB. It's barely there at all. I notice the bottom bezel of the screen wasn't as tight fitting to the panel (concerned me at first). But I suspect it's in an attempt to put less stress on the panel and allow less light to leak. I've noticed as well this screen seems much richer in contrast and colour. The blacks are much, much improved showing almost no glow. Something I didn't even notice on my previous monitors. So I'd say there's been an improvement in quality/control since I bought my first two. The buttons are slightly less tactile but I barely use them. It's almost a bit annoying now the main middle monitor is slightly better than the other two. However - I'm keeping an eye out for a Spyder 5 pro 2nd hand to try and match the colour profiles/look across all 3 screens anyway. So hopefully after that they're all as close to each other in terms of picture as possible - Long story short, I still love these monitors. I'd bump it to 4.5 stars if I could, since the backlight bleed has been significantly reduced. My new monitor can clock to 77HZ, anything over that and it fails. I have them setup on a 3 monitor arm (which I'd highly recommend as the stand can be a tiny bit wobbly).
I have a YouTube channel: KTNTECH (You'll find the unboxing and impressions video there)
If you're a gamer do not go with this one.
Because it's an IPS Panel the response times are a lil less and there are tad bit jelly effect while gaming.
If you're a photo/video editor definitely this is for you at least on this budget.
Thanks for reading.
Don't forget to check out the channel :)
Following are my observations:
1) The first thing I noticed is that top and side bezels of the monitor are very thin which is aesthetically pleasing and gives it a premium look.
2) Screen is decent and has good brightness and contrast. Not sure about color reproduction but it feels alright.
3) Screen has a refresh rate of 60 Hz at 1920x1080 resolution. However it has an option of 75 Hz at 1024x768 resolution also.
4) Even though this monitor has Eye Care (Bright Intelligence), I felt that the sensor adjusted brightness is on higher side for my liking.
5) There is slight backlight bleed at top left corner of monitor which is noticeable only in very dark environments but overall has uniform IPS Glow.
6) Response time mentioned on the box is 5ms (Gray to Gray) and I felt it to be good for FPS games. Overall, it's a good monitor for casual gaming.
7) It comes with UK style power cord and needs a converter/adapter or a spike guard will work.
8) The box also includes HDMI cable and the monitor has cable management as shown in product description which I felt is a nice addition to the package.
Monitor has following ports:
Line-in port and
3.5 mm jack for plugging in earphones
This monitor also has in-built speakers which are pointed downwards. The quality of audio from them is nothing to brag about and max volume is that of a typical tablet (my iPad Pro 12.9" 2017 has better sound output than them) but no complaints here considering the price of the monitor.
Overall this monitor is value for money product considering the price I got it for.
Cheers to Amazon for on-time delivery.
Feel free to ask any questions about the product, will be glad to help!
- Dalle (IPS) de bonne facture pour ce qui est des couleurs/contraste (dans les normes pour ce type de dalle)
- Flicker Free efficace, et suffisamment fluide pour le gaming
- Design sobre, et boutons de bonne facture
- Fixation VESA 100 avec alimentation intégrée (les blocs externes deviennent la mode et parfois sont problématiques)
- Le prix
- Fuites de lumière a de multiple endroits (1/3 des bords), s'accentue au fil des semaines ...
- Impossible de régler le GAMMA de l'écran depuis l'OSD => Firmware bugué et lorsqu'on envoi un mail à BenQ (site officiel EN et demande formulée en EN), pour de l'assistance on me dit de contacter le service France ... et sur la page FR, il faut donner tout un tas de données perso (bientôt il faudra donner la taille de sa b***) pour ne serait-ce que leur envoyer un message. Du coup j'ai corrigé avec le drivers de la carte vidéo, ça le fait, mais j'aurais préféré que ce soit direct depuis OSD (mon ancien LG de 7 ans, lui au moins était calibré d'usine ...)
- Oublier tous les modes prédéfinis, ils sont juste INUTILES.
Conclusion, un écran correct pour dépanner en attendant (peut-être cela n'arrivera plus jamais) que les fabricants sortent des modèles de meilleur qualité (expérience vécue aussi sur des écrans a 600e ...). Si jamais vous vous laissez tenter, à la réception n'hésitez pas à le retourner au moindre défaut, ... aujourd'hui c'est l'utilisateur final le testeur ... une honte (et/ou arnaque) ...
So that the picture settings aren’t greyed out, go to: Picture Advanced > Picture Mode > User
The following settings I have used are:
Picture Advanced > HDMI RGB PC Range > RGB 16~235
Picture > Gamma > 5
This monitor just looks cheap due to the finish, but my main complaint is the actual picture quality. I've got it set to max brightness and it still looks dull compared to my other monitors. Also the viewing angles are bad. Unless your looking directly at the monitor you can't see anything, it's just too dull.
I then went to clean the screen as there were some smears on it and it's impossible to get it smear free due to the anti scratch plastic they've put on the screen (which is what actually makes it so dull). I did think that maybe this was a protective layer that had been put on to protect it in transport and when I picked at a corner it started to come off. I then pulled it a bit more and it started to peal off, but not very easily, which makes me think this layer is meant to stay on there.
Anyway, I managed to peak it all off and the result is a much brighter monitor and the screen can now be cleaned properly. This does mean the screen is now a glossy finish rather than matt, but the picture quality is now better.
Ich sehe den Vorteil / die Güte des IPS-Panels nicht. Im selbigen Raum steht ein 24 Zoll Benq mit TN - ca. 3 Jahre alt. Das Bild ist mindestens genauso gut. Da hätte ich mir mehr erwartet.
ich habe von den GW2780 zwei bestellt, da ich auf einem Tandem -Monitor Halter die beiden nutzen möchte. Anordnung ist gut, aber jetzt kommt das Kernproblem.
Die Bildschirme kann man anordnen wie man will oder man kann sich setzen wie man will: man wird nie einen gleichwertigen Blickwinkel haben - ausser man positioniert die Monitore als V, aber das ist albern,
Wenn ich nun frontal vor einem Monitor sitze, ist dieser ok, der Nachbar-Monitor macht da aber nicht mit. Das Bild verliert an Licht und wird völlig ungleichmäßig ausgeleuchtet.
Wenn ich z.B. bei meinem LG-TV (Fernseher) nicht frontal von 90 Grad sondern von der Seite ca. 30 Grad gucke, dann ist der gesamte Bildschirm immer noch gestochen scharf und gleichmäßig hell.
HIer hätte ich mir eben von der IPS-Technik mehr erwartet.
Ich gucke mal in einem großen Handel, um die Monitore live zu sehen. Wenn es da bessere gibt, dann sende ich die beiden wieder zurück.
1. The height is not adjustable, the rake is, but not the height. (On my desk I find that the height is perfect).
2. There are no speakers in this monitor.
3. The controls are on the bottom of the monitor frame (right hand side).
When looking for reviews of the 28" monitor, make sure you are reading the correct review, the reviews have been lumped in with the reviews for the 27".
Overall I am extremely happy with this monitor, I had the Benq 24" one before this & have had no problems with it in the last two years.
My requirement was a 27" monitor. I am not a serious gamer only play casual games from time to time. The main purpose was to do programming and watching videos (and reading). This monitor suits perfectly.
- Excellent display. It had a bit of light bleed on top right corner but it was just the glass a bit out. I just pressed it in and the bleed was gone.
- Good contrast and viewing angles. I have not played any FPS games till now but overall the experience till now (10 days) has been smooth and consistent. The 5ms response time is good enough for me.
- Although it is a 1080p display, the text and videos appear sharp, no pixelation or ghosting. Colours are uniform and even.
- Bluelight filtering is good. Helps when reading a long book / article and puts less strain in the eyes.
- The Eyecare feature is a bit aggressive. The display becomes too bright for the surrounding light. I just switched it to standard and set the brightness and contrast to levels I am comfortable with. The day/night light in my room doesn't differ much so I don't need to change the settings.
Other monitors with similar features were around or over 20k, I got this for 17k. Overall a very good budget monitor. It also has 3 years warranty which is good and tells that I can expect a pretty long life from this.
Let me know if you need to know more.
EDIT: actually, it has 5 buttons, besides the power button. Sorry about that. It is reasonably intuitive what they do if you fiddle around. The only thing you might need to do is select the input you are using. There is a manual online if you need it.. Search for GL2580H, as the variants of the monitor seem to be (currently) gathered under the name of the de-luxe version.
I have had experience working with a wide-range through university in labs and art rooms. This monitor is punching well above its weight according to the price. The colours out of the box are OK, a little warm but once you go through the calibration (simply hit windows, type calibrate) and sort out the hue it is beautiful! Don't get me wrong it is not quite on the same level as an acer predator that boasts colours as nice as this and runs at 140Hz on top but keeping in mind the price this is really hard to beat.
I bought a dell p2414H at the same time, which costs £145. This display easily blows that out of the water. The Dell does come with a better stand and a USB hub but the colours of the Dell monitor were nowhere near as nice as this out of the box. And there is a version of this monitor that comes with a more ergonomic stand however I always recommend just buying a cheap £20 monitor arm, they're about the same cost increase and often offer much better range of motion.
This monitor is amazing value for money and its gaming mode and ability to increase its refresh rate makes it versatile. I game on it too and it doesn't skip a beat and the entire process of using this is a dream.
Happily recommend this purchase, you won't be disappointed.
Olvídate de los altavoces, dado que son patéticos. Una calidad de sonido pésima. Me he tenido que comprar unos altavoces a parte. Esto con el otro monitor que ya tenia era totalmente innecesario.
Como he dicho antes, uso las dos pantallas, por lo que es fácil comparar la calidad de imagen de ambas, simplemente arrastrando un video o una foto de una a otra y fijándote en los detalles. Y en calidad de imagen también gana el otro monitor arriba citado. Es cierto que este es más grande, pero la diferencia de tamaño me parece tan poca que no justifica la de calidad.
Donde si noto una ventaja es en que se me cansa menos la vista, asi que punto para el Low Blue Light +.
Resumiendo: Me salió rentable por la oferta, pero si no, creo que no merece la pena. Pero si te lo vas a coger, coge el modelo SIN altavoces. Si quieres uno con altavoces, te sigo recomendando el monitor BENQ GL2250. Espero que le sirva a alguien. :)
The menus can be tricky to navigate however and take a bit of getting used to, but once you figure out how they have done it (the buttons are used as arrows) you can zip through the menus easily.
For the price, for general PC use like browsing, editing videos etc the monitor performs fine. Gaming is also more than possible with this monitor if you are on a budget but you may need to alter the colours on the monitor itself as the "Game" mode throws the colour range into a very cool temperature which I found was odd.
At a listed price (as of typing this) at £103... its a decent buy for people on a budget.BenQ GW2470HL 23.8-Inch Full HD 1080p LED Eye-Care Monitor - Black
