Benq G2220HD - Great all rounder
Member Name: Tom123
Advantages: Great secondary monitor
Disadvantages: Bit cheap and cheerful for gfx work
I've used this monitor as a secondary screen with my desktop PC setup for the past 10 months, alongside another Benq as primary. Benq are a relatively low budget manufacturer, and although they make fairly reliable products, are not really in the same ball park as names like Samsung, LG, or Panasonic.
That being said, in terms of value for money, this has been one of the best purchases I've made. It cost around £150 when I bought it, and after 10 months, is still going strong. The response time of ~5ms is pretty good for a budget monitor, and the field of view is quite expansive too. Colour can at times appear over-saturated, but in general I've had no complaints with regards image quality.
Recently the cable connection to the monitor itself has started to 'go', and the connection seems a bit loose, which results in some blurring on screen at times, but I feel this is probably more due to me having it pulled taut for 10 months due to poor monitor/desk position.
Overall, this has been a very reliable monitor, and at this price is great for a secondary screen. If looking for a primary monitor to game on or do intensive graphics work, I would suggest investing slightly more though.
Summary: Budget secondary monitor, reliable, functional, stylish - what more do you want?
