5 out of 5 eggs

Pros: This monitor is great. I got it (going to buy another one) to stream & play high end games.

Cons: The base is a little wobbly due to it being adjustable. However, it is not a big deal at all.

5 out of 5 eggsI was completely surprise

Pros: Beautiful color
Great buttons on the side
Stand is sturdy and does not feel cheap
No power brick on the cable - it's built into the monitor!

Cons: No HDMI port

Other Thoughts: 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.

4 out of 5 eggsA bit short

Pros: Great moniter, nice quality, nice and wide

Cons: Though it was very wide it was a bit too wide for its height. If it were a bit taller the picture would look a bit more natural. Whilst playing Minecraft I began to notice that the squares in the game started to look very rectangular.

Other Thoughts: Over all its a great monitor just wish it was a bit taller to have a less distorted image.

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent!

Pros: Clear, bright, doesn't hurt eyes, sturdy stand.

Cons: Waking on sleep is a little slow. Sometimes, it makes me think my computer froze or won't wake from sleep mode.

Other Thoughts: I was looking for monitors everywhere and found one I thought I'd like: this. I was going to go for an Asus, but everyone pretty much said every one of them had a wobbly stand. This monitor has a solid stand, which was also extremely easy to setup as well. Buttons on the side are nice too. The display is bright, but doesn't seem to cause any eye strain. Very easy on the eyes. Colors are also excellent to me. Greens are green, blacks are dark, etc. Only issue is that waking it from sleep tends to take a while. I had a cheaper monitor that woke up quicker, but the issue is so minor compared to the greatness of the monitor that I'm willing to not knock off an egg. Would I recommend this to a friend? Definitely! Cheap, but a very, very nice monitor.
