Date Issued: 15th May 2015

Choosing a monitor is not an easy decision to make, and not just because of the large number of variations in resolution, refresh rates, sizes and connectivity options. There are also varying panel technologies used to form each display that need to be considered. These panel technologies can be grouped into three broad categories which cover the vast majority of monitors sold in the consumer market.

NVIDIA G-Sync
NVIDIA G-Sync
Date Issued: 17th Dec 2013

G-SYNC works in a surprisingly simple way - it calculates how long the present frame takes to compute and then, crucially, varies the refresh rate of the monitor to match. It works between a minimum of 33.3ms (30fps) and the maximum supported refresh of the display. The key takeaway here is that the graphics card and monitor are both synced up to one another - the monitor doesn't have the limitations imposed by a rigid, fixed-rate scanning routine.

Now shipping with all but the cheapest complete PCs are LCD monitors. Advances in display manufacturing and associated cost reductions with economies of scale have brought LCD monitors into the mainstream, shipping with budget systems that start at just £400. LCD monitors come in all shapes and sizes, have differing resolutions and inputs. The purpose of this TekSpek is to provide a basic understanding of how LCDs work, delineate their desirable features, and to offer basic buying advice.

As you’ll all likely know by now, DVI is the current standard for connection of a PC or other display generator to a digital display output. You’ll recognise the multi-pin connector and know that almost all modern LCD displays have the corresponding input connector, for feeding from your PC. But do you know how DVI works?

Whether the broadcasters are going HD or not, TV sets and projectors are arriving thick and fast which claim to support higher resolutions than regular telly. But HDTV is far from just one standard – it incorporates a couple of different resolutions, two different scanning modes, and a number of different frame rates. In this article, we present a guide to what all the terms actually mean.

Date Issued: 14th Jun 2008

There’s a lot more to High Definition than just having the ability to run your screen at the right resolution. With more than one type of connection available, and the thorny subject of signal encryption to contend with, just because your monitor and graphics are capable of 1,920 x 1,080 or better does not necessarily mean they will be able to display HDTV in all its glory.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Nice monitor, inconsistent technical problems The monitor looked great and had a very good stand. Unfortuantely it was beset by technical problems. When plugged in via a DVI cable, randomly (but more often than not) the monitor would display red pixels in any dark area's of the screen (see attached screen shot). When plugged in via HDMI cable, the monitor would act like images were being burned in. At one time the monitor was left on for 15 minutes, and the background image became stuck to such a degree that even un-plugging it form the PC, turning the monitor off and back on again you could still see the image displayed. This was not acutal burn in, as it would clearly very quickly after being turned off and could happen in almost no time, but some kind of error. Various cables were attempted with no change in these issues. Other monitors (including of the same spec / resolution) have been used on this PC with no issue so the fault must have been with the monitor its self. I returned to Scan RMA who said "No fault found" so I've had no choice but to refund the monitor and buy a different one. It's a nice monitor if it works, I may have just got a bad one but not worth risking it a second time.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Indcredibly frustrated with this monitor Thought this monitor was going to be good but as soon as I got it working I instantly got a stuck pixel incredibly disappoted with this Benq monitor and most of all scan Not sure it's dead or stuck because when I look the pixel it's red but on camera it's white

Rated 5 out of 5 by from 1440p. An amazing monitor! Pros: Great resolution, 1440p means games and applications look great. Scaling is weird for some applications but nonetheless this monitor really packs a punch! Easy to set up. The parts simply slot together, no fiddling with screwdrivers. Both EU/UK plug provided in the box along with useful manuals as well as drivers (though understandably you can get those online if needed) Cons: The screen i had seemed to have a dead pixel, though a quick inspection and a nudge seemed to have fixed that? (can't knock the monitor for that. could've happened in delivery) The power buttons/function buttons are all touch sensitive, meaning that if you go to rotate the display, you end up turning off the monitor and in a panic think you've broke something. Other than that, if you are looking for a monitor that has a really good color depth and resolution greater than 1080p, but can't quite handle 4K ( GTX 1080 is close, but 1440p is still the better choice for this monitor/card setup i have) Then this monitor is perfect for you!
