Pros: Just wanted to weigh in since these happened by some miracle to come onto the market 3 days before I was going to build my 1st computer in 15 years. I was skeptical but this thing really kicks @ss. I installed it on my motherboard and booted windows 10 off a USB stick and installation was extremely quick and I didn't have to change any settings.
I haven't bothered benchmarking it but it loads windows in about 5 seconds from the BIOS. I changed the bios delay from 3 seconds to one because I am so spoiled now!

Cons: none.. maybe the fluctuating price but the samsung equivalent is SO much more expensive...READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: Tons of real estate, crisp images, decent blacks, Can't seem to find any custom settings better than the factory defaults. nice change.
Probably would have sprung for the ips for 30 bucks more but the viewing angles and blacks on this are pretty awesome. wish i could buy two or three of these bad boys.
compared to the viewsonic 24" 1080 i was using this monitor is MUCH better.
Skin tones look awesome.
Cons: I think the bad or pixelated blacks i see are from bad video encodings... i watch a lot of movies. NO HDMI kind of sucks.
Other Thoughts: If anyone has custom settings that work please post them... for amd or intel chipsets.. (please specify)READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: I gave the monitor a 1 and returned it... turns out i might have a weird graphics card issue... although i tested the monitor on two different computer and neither laptop could find it, not sure what was going on.
I have since tried another DVI monitor and it worked on one of those computer but not the other.
In short, maybe i'm and idiot but don't take that 1* review to heart. Never owned a BenQ monitor so I'm not sure what they are like.
Giving it a 5 to offset my 1
Cons: Tech support WAS completely useless. Being passed around by indians... I felt like a basket of falafels. They had no idea what was going on.
When the extent of tech support is "puch the button on the side" then we have issues.
I just got 3 hours of tech support from dell on the other hand and they were incredible... coming to my house and everything!
