4 out of 5 eggsNear Perfect, but....

Pros: I got this Monitor in March from different site, and have been using it every day since. I'm a gamer and I did not notice any ghosting what so ever on this screen. Colors and brightness for destkop and games were spot on.

Cons: I have noticed couple of very annoying things with this screen. First, If you have the screen turned off (not on standby where you see yellow button) and you start your PC, and your PC boots all the way to desktop, and then you turn on your Monitor, it will not detect the signal from the VideoCard(power button LED stay yellow). (all this was tested on DVI connector) Which means you will have to hard-rested your PC, and put the monitor on standby BEFORE you turn your PC ON so that it can pick up the VIDEO signal during the BOOT of the PC. I have NVIDIA 8800GTX and would love to see if anyone else had same issues.

Other Thoughts: Also, I have noticed that if you want to watch DVD movies on it, you have to do some color, contrast and brightness tunning, and even then picture would not be perfect, at least not what I expected it to be, for the money you pay.
Overall this is a rock solid gaming monitor and short of the few issues from above I would recommend it to gamers that love near perfect Gaming screen in beautiful 24".

5 out of 5 eggsA Simple Question

Pros: See Other Thoughts.

Cons: See Other Thoughts.

Other Thoughts: Whats the difference between this and the BenQ FP241W? Is it just this one includes an HDMI cable?

5 out of 5 eggsExcellent display, if not the best

Pros: The main advantage is probably the size- if you're upgrading from anything below a 20", you'll notice a big difference. This monitor supports full HD resolution, which is 1920x1080 (1080p) and PC resolution up to 1920x1200- at which you could fit a whole lot of information on the screen. 2 documents side-by-side, Adobe Photoshop, and not to mention full HD movies. The display is BRIGHT- I have it set to 20, and that's equivalent to full brightness on my DELL LCD 20" (2007wfp). Contrast level are more than satisfying, and saturation levels are generous as well. Ghosting is NOT a problem with this monitor, as I have no idea what 1% or 2% of the people are talking about. The monitor does not have a "shutting off for 2 or 3 seconds occasionally" problem either. Again, a few people who own this monitor strongly suggested that this is a known issue, but it has not happened to me. Maybe they need to RMA their monitor and not relate their problems with non-defective units. Who knows.

Cons: The only bad thing about this LCD monitor is that although the stand is solid (and you can tell because it's probably heavier than the monitor itself), it does come a little crooked. Your screen will look slightly tilted but can be easily fixed with a manual twist. The only thing is that it feels like it's very likely to tilt again after some time, since the buttons are on the side and pressing it would put pressure on the stand unevenly. Second disadvantage is the highlight of the screen itself. The AMA-Z feature (black frame insertion) is really not worth bothering with. The flickering is actually noticeable and is comparable to a 60hz CRT monitor. Then again, the monitor does really well with ghosting without ever the need to turn this feature on. Lastly, this thing is EXPENSIVE!!! You could probably get a 30" HDTV for this price but this screen is all about quality. That 30" wouldn't stand a chance.

Other Thoughts: Out of the box, the display looks way off. The settings for brightness and contrast are way off (too high) and color tones were not neutral (can be adjusted). You need to spend at least 15 minutes with your new monitor, adjusting it until you reach the desired settings. This can be done by looking up in google images "color" and "gray levels". People also complained about all the buttons being on the side of the monitor, and how this is bad design- in my opinion, it really isn't. If you do it right, the settings should only be messed around with once. If you can't get it right the first or second time, blame yourself. The on/off button is separated from the others and you will know where to press (the top button) and the AMA-Z button has a little dot that you can feel (like brail) and everything else would take less than 5 minutes to get used to. Too many complainers in this world.

5 out of 5 eggsVery pleased!

Pros: Great picture quality. Very good picture adjustments from the OSD. Can adjust the sharpness, clock, and phase to get great results. Love the stand (easy to adjust and sturdy). Can be adjusted to just under 19 inches in height to much higher. Very bright. Comes with all the needed cables. No bad pixels!!! Awesome!

Cons: None so far. The only thing missing that would be a nice touch is a cleaning cloth. The web cam being included would be dreamy :).

Other Thoughts: After some adjustments, I still saw some very slight banding. I'm thinking that this was because I was using the D-sub cable connected to my docking station which has my laptop. When the rest of my parts come, I will set it up for the DVI cable with my new workstation. Also

5 out of 5 eggsExceeded my expectations

Pros: First off, this BenQ looks awsome. Sleek, black, with a thin bezel. Highly adjustable swing/rise/tilt. HDMI, Picture in picture, perfect motion black frame insertion, face melting 1920x1200 resolution. Very little backlight bleed. It's no CRT but for an lcd the colors look wonderful. Uprezzes dvds beautifully. It demonstrates its real bread and butter though when I watch 1080p footage shot with my wonderful and also highly recomended canon xh a1.....

Cons: Its not free and doesn't come with any hookers.

Other Thoughts: owned it about 3 mo. use it almost everyday and don't have a single regret or complaint. I did extensive research on available monitors in this price range before I bought and owning it has just confirmed my suspicion that there aren't any better ones out there.

5 out of 5 eggsVirtual World11

Pros: First of all Fast monitor, no dead pixels at all. No ghosting on my high end system, This monitor is very bright, you can lower the brightness a bit, or I use perfect motion since I play games as well.
Fear, Call Duty and Serious sam Look awesome, with native resolution. I will never game on my 17" CRT again.

Cons: nope

Other Thoughts: I don't know what you are talking about ghosting. "for other previews review."
I 2 Evga 8800GTX fast cards and still don't see ghosting with my naked eye, unless you use a camera.
Also you g2 know when you to use perfect motion and other settings.

5 out of 5 eggslove it

Pros: really love this monitor, no dead pixels, large, crisp,

Cons: controls on the side takes some getting use to

Other Thoughts: I have only one game that I play with any consistency and that's WoW. No ghosting, none. An amazing experience with such a large screen. I'm using EVGA 7950 GT card, and old Athlon 64 3200 CPU.

2 out of 5 eggsNot for games

Pros: The size is nice.

Cons: This monitor suffers bad ghosting problems. If you play any fast past game, you will notice objects leave a trail behind as you move the mouse.

Iv'e had the 244t, 2407, and the acer 24" and none of them suffered from this problem.

When perfect motion is used, the problem is very visable. Also, perfect motion is not all that great, causes a constent slight flicker and really doesn't help much with motion blur.

Other Thoughts: I went through 3 of these monitors to see if the ghosting problem was just a defective monitor but it is not. I can also tell you that it is not the computer. I hooked this monitor up to 2 other computers with the same result.
