Poor quality control and support. Posted by: from: on Pros: Gaming at 1440p and 144hz is a great experience. High quality stand. Puck remote is actually very handy. Cons: Received unit with excessive blue tinted light bleed in the lower right corner and along bottom bezel. Not a nitpick at all, it shouldn't have passed QC. Replacement unit had a bright cluster of pixels in the center of the screen. It was also significantly less bright than the first and looked well below the stated 350 nits. Headphone jack does not work when the refresh rate is set to 144hz. Benq support is not helpful and doesn't stand behind their product in the slightest. Other Thoughts: Assumed in error that Benq had better QC than the larger OEM's producing similar monitors right now. Based on my experience I think the QC is about the same across the board. I was surprised by how little Benq support did to help (i.e. literally nothing - return it to the retailer). Sometimes the smaller companies stand behind their product a bit more.

Outstanding Monitor Posted by: from: on This is a great monitor! Don't listen to what some people may say about the blur or any other negating reviews, they are over exaggerating that to the max. And for anyone who says using a tv is better I would strongly disagree with you. The 1440p resolution is crisp with some color adjustments which are easy with the Switch Arc control. This is meant for gaming and it does that perfectly. 1ms and 144hz is outstanding. I would highly recommend this monitor for anyone who has an AMD graphics card capable of FreeSync. Playing games like GTA, Far Cry, Star Wars, The Division all look amazing. The monitor's physical features are great. The stand and base are solid and heavy so there is little to no movement. Adjusting the angle and height are easy and making screen adjustments are simple with the controls. Overall this monitor surpasses the expectations for gamers. It is a direct challenge to the Asus monitor which is another excellent monitor. I have had both and its all preference when it comes down to it.

Excellent for Gaming Posted by: from: Murrieta, CA on My son uses this monitor and his lag time has been dramatically reduced from his previous TV monitor. The graphics are incredible and the overall experience of using this monitor exceeded his expectations.

Great picture! Posted by: from: on Again great picture and smart monitor. Auto mode is as easy as it's titled. Kinda annoying to get setup correctly and get everything to 144hz quickly. After you go through all the tedious picture corrections it's worth the buy! Now time for my graphics card lolz

Excellent Gaming Monitor Posted by: from: on This quality of this monitor has been phenominal. I have another BenQ monitor that I now use as my secondary monitor, and this is my new main. Games look amazing @ 1440p/144hz. I highly recommend this monitor.

great monitor bad support Posted by: from: on Shame on Benq. The monitor itself is great. I started to have a flickering issue with whites and grays and i let support know. Their response was garbage. The problem went away, but it could come back. The poor support, and Benq's general problem dealing with customers has me recommending a Dell instead. Do not buy Acer or Asus monitors either, unless you dont mind equally terrible support (just hope you never need it!)

Great Display Posted by: from: Connecticut on This is awesome for a gamer! It will only work on 60 HZ with the HDMI or DVI connections(that come with monitor) However, in order to utilize the 144Hz,you will need to use a Display Port (DP) Cable. If you use the HDMI cable this monitor don't have any speakers to use for sound. But if you're a true gamer, you won't be using these anyway.
