Rated 5 out of 5 by SpAwNtoHell good luck finding something wrong... you won't find anything
I will cut the chase of intro, this monitor is great, uniformity of black white and color is top notch, no artefacts at 144hz in actual content and games. I play a lot of csgo and other fps titles and also rpg games, input lag is imperceptible. I have few monitors around a aoc g2460pg and the asus 144hz 24" on of the first 144hz monitors. Along the way i tried the ips 27" from acer and asus and i end up returning do to clouding dark spots the usual you read in reviews... Compared to ips panel you pretty much give up wide view angles but thats it really you will notice a slightly more vibrant color on ips only if you put ips side by side with this monitor and even then you have to strugle to see the difference. I bought this specially for fps games do to the fact i do not need gsync in csgo as gsync at over 100fps introduces lag, i tested this myself on the aoc and acer. This monitor wont let you down tho quite expensive, but the price reflects quality and value.

I've gone from MG1 to nearly LE on CS:GO Thanks to this monitor, I'd like to say thanks to Ben q and scan for unleashing my true potential.

Rated 5 out of 5 by SuddenlyPineapples Second only to a G-sync monitor!
I got this to replace a 23" Dell monitor (also from Scan) which had a gloss finish and lackluster colour reproduction.
Its packed well from the factory and arrived in immaculate condition.
They bundle a DVI cable with the monitor, as well as a cover - yes, I'm not kidding you, it legitimately comes with a cover to place over the whole unit when its not in use (maybe when you've set it up at your local LAN party and don't want anyone getting their dirty fingers on it)
The stand is solid and super heavy, there's no worry about stability, as well as offering every adjustment you should expect - tilt, swivel, height and screen rotation.
The menu buttons are in plain sight on the front bezel but if you want to look super flashy you can use the pretty cool little "remote" type control that also has a place to sit on the base of the unit - its super easy to navigate menus and even has buttons to switch between 3 user modifiable settings presets.
I'm not a super vision buff so I can't tell you if this monitor is perfect in terms of colour, contrast etc, but I can say that its a huge step up from my previous screen, and I've felt comfortable with near enough factory settings.
My one gripe (though this is probably my GPU as much as the monitor) is an annoying "Out of Range" error that cuts video output from the PC, usually when changing resolution in certain games or fiddling with refresh rates (e.g. switching between 60 and 144hz) - if anyone knows what this issue is please hit me up, I'm also running it by DP cable if that is important!
Yeah this is on the more expensive side compared to some other offerings out there but I definitely recommend this to any discerning gamer with money to spend, but not so much that you can afford a fancy G-sync monitor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MIGGY Gaming @ 100+hz
Upgraded from a 60hz 2ms AOC monitor which did the job very well in gaming. This 144hz monitor from benq, well it is just amazing on refresh rates with today's latest game releases and graphics. FPS games such as CS:GO BF3, BF4 and the likes are just superb now with detail, quick response with aiming, on the fly usb gamer setting controller to allow a quick change of profiles depending on the game being played. Black equalizer setting is good on certain dark games, highly recommend this monitor for any competitive or serious gamer who demands the quick response times, sharp details and customizable game settings! Looks are great and has a strong well designed mount unlike my other AOC monitor! Thank's again scan for another great purchase!

This is by far the best monitor I have ever had. My last one was a 2ms refresh rate 24", 60hz Acer. The BenQ knocks it out of the park. Not just by the 1ms refresh rate either. The whole thing from build quality to the menu system, refresh rate to the auto-lighten is just superb. Yes, this model automatically lightens the screen when you are "in a dark place", such as in a game, at night time. the 144hz refresh rate is just great.
Setting it up was just as easy slots together very easy 1 screw on the bottom and u done within mins ive read some reviews on it saying the settings to start with would need changing but ive not had to do a thing to it use right out of the box I been using it with a gtx 770 and its great ive just got myself a evga gtx 980 classified from scan also and I can't wait to see whats it like with that if I could give it more then 5 stars I would be very happy with it thxs scan
