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.

28" BenQ EL2870U 4K Monitor, 3840x2160 (UHD), HDR, TN, 60Hz, FreeSync, 1ms, 12M:1, 300cd/m², VESA, DP/HDMI is rated 3.3 out of 5 by 4.
Rated 2 out of 5 by from Good performance, terrible quality. Had this delivered from Scan a few days ago, excellent performance for gaming, but abysmal image quality. Trying watching a normal video and segments of the screen in dark areas, the screen cannot decide between a very dark grey, or pitch black, resulting in a terrible blotchy/pixelated mess - slide the video across to my 2nd monitor and the video is perfect.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great monitor for the price I bought this monitor as I needed the highest definition to be able to have multiple windows open to work from home during the lock down. The monitor has been excellent and everything that I hoped it would and definitely supported that I did not need to spend more money
Date published: 2020-04-20
Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very poor viewing angles I purchased this mainly for office productivity, but also for gaming. The vertical viewing angle was so poor though, that colours were not at all consistent up and down the screen. MacOS in dark mode looked dreadful. Returned for a refund. Maybe the particular TN panel, but I fear they are all like this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Bigger Than I Thought. For start with, this is a big monitor, i had purchased this monitor because i wanted to upgrade from a 22", the functions on this monitor are easy to understand and use, the great thing is the main functions are on the underside of the monitor screen which is great, stops accidental setting adjustments, the U.I is easy to understand, very clear, tuns of options and settings, the HDR is easy to activate or deactivate, also has built in eye protection which can be turned on or off, which is great for stopping eye strain, the built in speakers are good but not the best, you might be better off using a good set of gaming headphones or a separate speaker system, the picture nice clear and sharp, all picture settings are accessable through the U.I, you can plug in ur PC & XB or PS into the monitor at the same time and if you want to expand on that you can always use a HDMI splitter, the quility of the monitor feels great, it is very stable and does not move around easy like other monitors, good grips on the monitor base to stop sliding.. i would recommend this monitor to anyone who wants a good HDI gaming monitor and in need of an upgrade...
