5 out of 5 eggsSolid Purchase

Pros: 1: Overall Build Quality 2: Display Quality 3: Increased Viewing Distance

Cons: Glossy Bezel&Base (Really not a deal breaker) Built in speakers sort of a waste IMO. You wont buy this for its sound output. No one spends that much money for a monitor with speakers. They will usually have a sweet headset or speaker setup already.

Other Thoughts: For the quick answer on the product scroll down to the end of review!!!!

This monitor is an upgrade from my 2011HPx, don't judge me, I know I was behind the ball here. And please don't say, "He cant give an accurate review on such a serious leap of quality." I have seen and experienced many monitors whilst gaming. Please understand I am just a common gamer, nothing special - I'm out to help the average joe like myself.

The size of the monitor made it very easy to lounge a little more while I game. An extreme forward posture of focus and gaze can really mess with your comfort while gaming and likely cause a marginal->major impact on your gameplay - as it did mine.

The Build Quality of the monitor I would say is of a very sturdy solid construction; and there's no need to worry about the "top-heaviness" of those 27in coming down at all. It's big, but nothing the base couldn't handle (is that what she said?).

The monitor itself is easily worth the money. I'm a practical shopper when it comes to spending money. "Does this item really improve my experience for the amount of money it would cost?" I got this item while it was still on sale, and I have to say - I feel as if I stole it from Newegg. I believe the original price was 360, and I came by it from N.E. for 217$ after shipping. To me, it was hard to pass up. And I latched on to the old adage, "Sometimes forgiveness is better than permission." Not that I advice it to others haha.

The Viewing Quality: If you want a fancy description from me, skip this. Im talking to the average joe: all I need to do is reiterate what you're buying here, 27", 4ms, HDMI, LED B.L., LCD, 20m:1.
You need to learn what all those little things mean, it's easy to lookup. Seriously, stop now and look it up.

Every buyer is different so I'm not going to get into "what it looks like", because what you are looking for and how you view your screen are both entirely different perspectives from my own. All you need to know, is that I rate this a 9/10 viewing pleasure. It has a very refreshing crisp appeal to my eyes, fruit for the retinas, if you will.

In the end people ultimately look at a review and hope that it helps make up their mind on some aspect of the product or if the product is worth the money.

My final answer: BUY THIS PRODUCT!

4 out of 5 eggsPretty Good

Pros: *It's bright. I had to turn it down a bit.

*Provides enough light that I can see my keyboard at night.

*The large screen makes for easier headshots in FPS games compared to my old 19 inch.

Cons: *There is some ghosting with magenta like colors, but it doesn't bug me too much.
For example, I haven't seen any ghosting while playing Hawken, but I do when playing Skyrim such as areas where there are candles or fires.

*Magenta on Adobe Lightroom seems to be exaggerated. I feel I have to use my auxiliary Dell Monitor when Photo editing. Again, it doesn't bug me as I don't do this often.

Other Thoughts: *I use this for mostly gaming and CAD work.

*For my needs, this monitor is a great fit.

4 out of 5 eggsLooks beautiful, not optimal for all games

Pros: Beautiful static images, movies/videos
Pleasant experience for most games
Deep blacks, high level of color detail even in shadows
Great price for a monitor of this quality and size
New version is flicker-free

Cons: The 4-12ms GTG response time causes noticeable ghosting in games, but the severity of the blur effect varies depending on the scene.

In most scenes, it results in a very subtle blur effect that causes slight loss of texture detail when the camera is moving. The ghosting in these scenes is not distracting. In fact, it can be difficult to detect depending on your FPS, how close you are to the monitor, how good your eyesight is, and whether you've experienced monitors with faster response times in the past.

However, darker scenes with many complex, contrasting objects or textures with many contrasting details cause severe, distracting ghosting artifacts. The best example I have found is Skyrim. During the day in Skyrim, ghosting problems are limited to the subtle blur effect described previously. However, at dusk, at night, in dark dungeons, etc., when you transition from standing still to moving, you will often notice a severe, distracting change in the brightness of the scene. If the objects you are looking at are mostly dark but have many small, bright details (such as the speckled earth and foliage of the Skyrim terrain), when your character moves or when you move the camera steadily, the mostly dark elements of the objects swallow up the small bright details due to ghosting.

The net effect is a distracting overall decrease in the brightness of the objects you are looking at. As soon as you stop moving, the details come back and the objects appear brighter. Therefore depending on the scene and how your character moves, you may experience noticeable changes in object brightness when you start and stop moving, and sometimes even as you move steadily due to the bobbing motion of the camera.

The effect is amplified dramatically (to unacceptable levels) if you use a mod that sharpens the image, or if you achieve a similar effect by increasing the monitor's sharpness to maximum. The game is certainly still playable in these scenes, but it is a less pleasant experience.

Other Thoughts: For general use and watching movies/video, this monitor is fantastic. For gaming, if you are not sensitive to ghosting and the games you intend to play do not have many dark scenes with the contrast/sharpness qualities described above, it is also a great choice.

However, if you are sensitive to ghosting, or the games you play do have dark scenes with many contrasting/sharp details, you may want to look into buying a monitor with a much faster response time.

5 out of 5 eggsBright monitor

Pros: I've been using this monitor for over the last year and it hasn't given me any problems. Looks great with bright colors, high resolution. Great for gaming.

Cons: Have to wait for the BenQ logo to pop up and go away whenever you turn it on.

5 out of 5 eggsPerfect

Pros: For a blended panel type this monitor has vivid color and sharpness while being fast enough I can run games and accurately target opponents - (small targets at distance)
For monitor speakers these are the best I have heard.
I've used it to watch movies without putting on my headset - don't get me wrong, they don't compare with a quality headset - just saying they are decent enough I don't feel I have to wear a headset.
Comes with an easy to set up as well as sturdy stand. Not all stands are this sturdy. This is a plus.

Cons: None.

Other Thoughts: I went with an articulating desk mount monitor stand so I can pivot and move this monitor around.
Newegg part N82E16824994176 and it works wonders.
I connected with an HDMI cable N82E16882241281
I will purchase all of these again.

5 out of 5 eggsBQ GW2750hm

Pros: Big with good color. Speakers are ok for what I need. When I am playing music cranked up I use add on speakers. Read the specs.

Cons: none

Other Thoughts: No problems and I'm glad I bought it. I review items with regard to what I paid for it and how the specs suggest it should work. For the 359.00 I spent I got a big hdmi monitor, with speakers, that looks good.
I have noticed that when I optimize games with AMD Gaming Evolved they look better on Steam than my own pre sets. I have a Hd 6870 gpu.

5 out of 5 eggsFabtastic Value

Pros: Bright, clear, adjustable. High quality bezel. Accurate 1920x1080 delivery of image.

Cons: None come to mind

Other Thoughts: Got on sale and could not beat the size to price value proposition. When I got it set up and tweaked I thought there must have been a glitch in the marketing dept at BenQ and NewEgg. There was no way this monitor could look better than units twice the price - but it does.

5 out of 5 eggsGlad I bought ths monitor.

Pros: Quality picture, reasonable price, delivered quick.

Cons: Old school VGA input, MENU navigation, input recognition, weak speakers

Other Thoughts: BenQ GW2750HM. Simply plug it in with the VGA cord and it works. But VGA sucks. VGA connection gives noticeable multi line waviness on the BENQ when using laptop in duplicate mood although clearer when using laptop in extension mode. VGA does not deliver audio into the monitor speakers. And in my hands the VGA cord does not even deliver full 1080p resolution. Also VGA cord does not deliver audio so sound comes from the laptop. The BENQ works much, much better with a DVI or HMDI connection so you will need to find one of these cords. The BENQ default input setting is to run with the VGA cord they supplied. HMDI does not work, but wait, it will work. It will seem at first that the BENQ does not work with a HMDI cord (“No cable connection”) because it fails automatically recognize HMDI cord. The monitor’s input settings must be changed. But how? Simply plug in and power everything on, connect with the HMDI cord, (wait until the screen is totally black). Slowly press (don’t hold) the ENTER button on the side of the BENQ until the word HMDI appears. Choices are SUB-D (or VGA) or DVI (better but no audio) or HMDI (best). Easy, once you know this. It is much harder trying to change the input setting using the MENU options. HMDI will deliver audio into the monitor and shut off the laptop audio (and audio volume control). The BENQ speakers are worse than my laptop. When I plug in a quality external audio system (Bowers & Wilkins) into my laptop (via USB) this will override both the BENQ and laptop audio. I assume the headphone jack will also override both as well.

My laptop has a resolution of 1366 x 768 so anything delivered to the BENQ monitor from my laptop will be limited to this resolution. Still the quality of pictures, videos and DVD movies are quite good. Although my laptop is not full HD I can still play full HD and even BluRay media on the BENQ monitor using a portable external USB linked BluRay player. You still need a HMDI connection between the laptop and BENQ monitor (VGA will fail). A laptop set on duplicate mode will play BluRay movie and the picture quality on the BENQ monitor will be BluRay quality but there will be no video on a laptop screen because of the sub-HD resolution. The BluRay video on the BENQ monitor is surrounded by a 1 to 2 inch black edge. It is better set the Laptop to “extension” mode so that the BluRay movie can play at BluRay quality and fill the entire BENQ screen. Really impressive when everything is set up correctly.

Going to sleep now. Darn that Power light is awful bright.
