What customers say about "Key Specs"

  • Huge screen. 144hz refresh rate, 1 ms, w/ adjustable monitor settings
  • The Freesync range of 40-144hz is nice, even if 5 hz short on the low end compared to my older panel,
  • Crisp, clear resolution and brightness is great.
  • Stretching the screen across both of my BenQ monitors, this 1440p is very noticeable in picture. The colors pop out and look way better then my 1080p, which I have always thought had a nice picture/colors when you consider the response time and etc.
  • It's pretty bright once installed, tinker with the settings before using.

What customers say about "Display"

  • The monitor is fantastic, a little washed out and too bright on arrival but a few adjustments helped immensely.
  • I have no complaints with the colors on this panel, and more particularly the GAMMA levels.
  • The colors are amazing and clear.
  • Packaging and build looks amazing. I can't say if I just got a bad panel , but it had the worst contrast ratio I have ever seen , I have another Zowie 24" and it is perfect. This one is just unbearable to look at. I had no choice but to return it.
  • The monitor was stupid bright, colors were REALLY washed out, and there are so many options such as blur reduction and blackeye (or whatever it is called) that it takes a long time to get settings that are close to working.

What customers say about "Features"

  • The little panel at the base of the monitor are settings you can program to different brightness, lower blue light, etc. There are 3 programmable settings
  • The vibrance is a wonderful feature and can make a dull picture appear rich and vibrant. Great for work and gaming.

Connectivity

Inputs
D-Sub, DVI, DisplayPort 1.2, 2x HDMI

What customers say about "Connectivity"

  • All resolutions were not recognized by Windows 10 using DVI connection - had to go into Nvidia control panel to create custom profile.
  • Full featured with a nice control piece - so you don't have to press the monitor buttons. Two full speed USB 3.0 ports and audio in+out.
  • Picture is very good, the speed and fluidity is even better! As soon as I put the display port in my gaming pc and changed to 144hz it was unbelievable how clear and how fast it was. I could never go back to 1080p.
  • Could not switch between DVI and DisplayPort connections - I think what happened was that Windows 10 kept seeing this as a dual monitor setup. I got tired of messing with it and unplugged DisplayPort.
