3 out of 5 eggsSolid for gaming, suffers from TN drawbacks

Pros: The fast response time really makes a difference. The LED backlighting makes colours vibrant but not oversaturated, the OSD isn't too confusing (though certainly not the best), and the external appearance of this monitor is quite nice, with the red trim on the base and a matte display. Connectivity has the standard choices and will satisfy anyone looking to put this monitor on a desk (though the choices might be fairly limited if you're looking to make this your main display in the house, and since it's a straight-up monitor there's no component or composite connections).

There are little things that you don't really think about when purchasing a monitor, but are nice to have, like a warning about Optimal Resolution (which you can turn off) if the displayed content is above or below 1920x1080; an option to choose between Limited and Full RGB (recommend reading up on the difference, but if the input source this monitor is connected to supports Full RGB, make sure that's selected on both the device and monitor); and an Information section in the settings that tells you what the model number is. That saved me some searching.

The buttons on the side of the display, used to control the OSD, are marked with small white dots that make them easier to see from the front. Each is programmable for a hotkey, which can range in function from changing the input source, to controlling the Black Equalizer levels, to quickly changing one of the predefined Picture Modes, to opening the OSD, etc.

Cons: If you are looking for rich, deep blacks, this - and any other monitor with a TN panel - is not for you. There is way too much backlight bleed-through. You won't really notice in bright scenes in movies or games, but in darker scenes, while the colours still hold true, the backlight shines through the blacks. Others may be unaffected by it, but it proves really distracting for me, and even though I calibrated this monitor as much as possible (the default RTS 1 setting is terrible), you'll still find me trying in vain to find some sort of backlight setting. On my HDTV, I was able to turn down the backlight and up the contrast and brightness to make up for it, which solved the bleed-through, but unfortunately all that is available with this monitor is Brightness, Contrast, and various other settings.

I can't say for other reviewers, but the Black EQ really makes no difference to me. Yes, it makes dark things brighter, which may help if the game you're playing is particularly dark - such as either Metro game, or heck, even parts of Destiny - but it does so at the expense of picture quality (after all, those scenes/levels are dark for a reason).

The buttons on the side have very slight ridges on them, meant to make it easier to find them in the dark, but they lack any other distinction, and they're all the same size and shape, so I find I fumble around with them more often than not if I need to change something at night.

Other Thoughts: The AMA setting fully eliminates any trace of unwanted motion blur/ghosting (unless the game you're playing puts it in there on purpose), but at the cost of showing a white after-image for a split-second. You're unlikely to notice it in day-to-day usage when it's set to High, but it's there, and it took me a while to adjust to its presence. DO NOT set it to Premium, or you WILL notice it. In the end, whether you use AMA at all is up to your personal preference. I find it's more noticeable when you're looking at something dark on a lighter background. Case in point, the trees in Morrowind: looking around, I could clearly see a rapid afterimage of the trees against the bright blue sky. Disabling it showed ghosting though, which I dislike more than the unique issue the feature provides.

5 out of 5 eggsAmazing

Pros: Amazing performance so far. Very hard to tell the difference between this and a higher rated 120hz monitor. 1ms response time makes things insanely smooth.

Great price to performance ratio. Felt like an absolute steal with its sale price of $189.99 + the 10% off coupon it had. At its sale price I'd say its easily one of the best in the range.

Black eQualizer is perfect for darker games like Battlefield 4 on Operation Metro, or Bioshock Infinite. Details you may have missed before stand out really well.

Cons: A tad bit wobbly but by no means bad. It'll only wobble as much as my desk will and not much more. The menu will confuse you and make you think the monitor will constantly revert to its default settings which aren't the best. It has a setting thats called AMA which to me, only provoked ghosting and white "trails" on moving objects. Turning it off fixed the problem.

Its factory settings are dull and by no means will it match a IPS monitor for color. However upon tinkering with them and learning how the menu works (I skipped the instruction manual) I had my settings just how I liked them and was satisfied with the results.

In short, factory settings and build are pretty good. May not be picture perfect but not worth knocking off an egg.

Other Thoughts: Overall I'm impressed. This is my first BenQ monitor and I was curious to see what made them so sought after. For my first purchase I'm surely impressed and consider it a solid upgrade over my faithful but aged Samsung 24 inch which reached the end of its lifespan. I try to purchase based on things that will last, and for starters, this monitor seems like it'll server me just as well if not better.

3 out of 5 eggsOkay But dead Sub-Pixel

Pros: Wasn't too expensive
Good colors
Good for gaming

Cons: Dead sub-pixel, meaning it is lit up red whenever it is on a white or light colored background when on a dark background it is nearly black, I used this monitor for about a week before I noticed it, in the left bottom center portion of the screen. Its not too bad though, it is only one pixel for now, and I only notice it when I am looking for it.
When I first turned it on it was like seeing double, all the letters you could see had a double lighter letter just next to it. This was because of some of the settings BenQ had set up as default, however I changed them around and took that effect out.

Other Thoughts: You need to know how to set up the monitor how you like it, and when it comes from the factory the picture may look like the monitor is malfunctioning, but if you play around with the settings you may be able to fix it for your eyes. It is good for games, but I am very disappointed in BenQ for that dead pixel.

1 out of 5 eggsHorrible

Pros: 24 inch

Cons: Promises no ghosting. Ive seen no difference at all compared to my 5ms IPS monitor.
The default settings for color was horrible. It gave me a headache within 10 minutes of use.

Other Thoughts: I eventually fixed the color (Looks excellent) The only problem I have now is the ghosting. AMA actually makes the ghosting worse so you need to turn it off. I would not suggest buying this monitor.

5 out of 5 eggsThis is awesome!!

Pros: Large monitor, bright screen, easy setup, and response time.

Cons: The picture quality is not the best, but this is great for gaming.

Other Thoughts: The response time on this monitor is awesome. I didn't believe that a monitor could make such a difference until I bought this one and am now a believer. This is a great monitor for the price.

5 out of 5 eggsGood for PC gamging, too!

Pros: While most of the reviews and videos you can find about this monitor on the internet talk about playing a console or the technologically misinformed who use FRAPS to "show" you how awesome the monitor is. I am here to tell you that this monitor is awesome for PC gaming. Even for First-person-shooters, which is what I mainly play.

Battlefield 4 looks good, League of Legends looks good, World of Tanks, etc etc. By good, I mean, fan-freaking-tastic compared to the 20" CRT I had been using for several years.

This monitor has all the connections you would ever need...DSUB, DVI, and 2 HMDI ports. The pre-programmed display settings are great. You also have total control of the settings. If you need to, you can even scale down the size of the monitor from a 24" to a 17" view area. This is great if you do plan to participate in a tournament and will be playing on a smaller monitor.

The 1ms GTG response time really shows, as does the flicker-free technology. The refresh is 60Mhz, but I have yet to see any ghosting or response/refresh issues in any game. Don't kid yourself, if you are used to a 120Mhz or 144Mhz monitor/TV, this picture won't be as "crisp". However, if you don't want to shell out $400 for a 24" monitor or more for a new TV, the $200 regular price for this monitor is fantastic. 60Mhz will never be as clear as 120+ Mhz. Who are you kidding though? You're looking at this monitor because you don't want to drop $400+ on a monitor to occasionally play games on. If you're only looking to play on a console, it won't matter anyways, because they only display at 60Mhz, which makes that extra $200+ just wasted cash. I will say though, that while this monitor is only 60Mhz, it looks as clear as the 75Mhz refresh rate of my old CRT.

Cons: The default display mode for the monitor is the pre-programmed settings called "RTS 1". This is great for gaming as it gives some extra brightness and pop to the screen and colors. It helps by making it easy to differentiate similar colors. However, it is a little bright for normal computer use in a medium-dimly lit room.

--This is easy to fix by programming one of the buttons has a hotkey to change the display mode. Thus, no mark off on the egg-rating.

This monitor does have 2 small speakers. They are in the heat/air grill along the top of the monitors back side. I am pretty sure these speakers are more designed for a low-end laptop. I did connected and play some sound through them... They exist, they work and if you really need something, they'll get you by. They are too small and shallow to produce any bass and with their placement, the sound can be a little off or echo-y. I didn't mark off any eggs in the rating for their either. Why? Because I have a nice Creative speaker & subwoofer set and for other times, I have an awesome Plantronics gaming headset. I don't have any reason to use the monitors speakers. Also, because they are speakers in a $200 LCD monitor. This isn't a Sony, Vizio, Samsung, or [insert TV manufacturer here] HDTV that's going to sit in your entertainment center and be your sole source of TV and video games. --Sure, maybe you can get a small HDTV for ~$200 that might have better sound, but your computer games will never look as pretty as they do on this monitor.

The only other downside is that it is labeled as "Red and Black" and from the pictures, you can see a little red on the base. I think it would have been nice to have a little more red somewhere, but that doesn't really affect what you really want this monitor for.

Other Thoughts: There are a LOT of monitors out there in general and there are not always a lot of reviews. I had a hard time finding a PC gamer-type review of the monitor or a video displaying PC game play. What I will tell you is that they do exist if you search youtube for RL2455HM and BenQ has HD videos for some very similar monitors as well.

I spent many hours looking for the right monitor. I am a gamer and I wanted something that was going to work well, but I don't always have wads of cash to spend on fancy monitors. I believe I made a great choice and I do not regret the decision on bit. This monitor is fantastic. You can set your own display settings, but I've found RTS1 works great for any game I've played, whether its an FPS or RTS.

5 out of 5 eggsAbsolutely Stunning.

Pros: The picture on this monitor is just fantastic.

The color is wonderful.

It has no dead or stuck pixels.

1ms response time. very nice.

Cons: No display port.

The monitor height is not adjustable.

Other Thoughts: This is the second Benq monitor I've bought, and I must say that they will be my preferred brand for any future monitor purchases.
