Budget Screen, Amazing Quality

Advantages: Quality, Style
Disadvantages: No HDMI, button layout
After the recent death of my trust old desktop it was time to upgrade. I bought a pretty high powered machine from dixons for a bargain price but the deal did not include a monitor. Rather than buying the rip off monitors they tried to sell me I dived into the internet and came across the BenQ G2222HDL on amazon. I was skeptical at first as I have never heard of BenQ but after reading reviews I decided to take the dive and go for it. Looking back I can easily say it is the best monitor I have ever owned, and since I bought it (probably around 8 months ago now) BenQ seems to be popping up all over the place.
I am by no means a technical person and most of the jargon and features are lost to me but I understand the basics. The 1920x1080 resolution means that a crisp and detailed image in guaranteed. Whilst the average resolutions vary depending on uses etc the general feel is an incredibly high quality display which is up there with the big boy manufacturers. The screen can go up to 1080p which I believe is full HD however I am one of the people who would never be too fussed about getting the very highest quality. The screen has 16.7 million colours and an Image Contrast Ratio of 5000000:1 (dynamic) which I have no idea what it means but assume the higher the better! The one major downside is it lacks a HDMI cable which limits it slightly but not too much as main use is for pc monitor.
As mentioned the main use of this screen is for a desktop computer. Therefore you can expect to be able to use it for videos, games and general computer work. The quality of the screen makes is excellent for games, and whilst im no expert I can guarantee games look great. Whilst a lot depends on the quality of graphics card you have installed, the screen will help improve overall look and feel of games and videos. For general pc use it is fine, with office software looking standard. The screen will excel if using for photo editing or just general photo viewing, with pictures looking fantastic.
The screen (when not in use) looks great, having a sleek black finish. Compared to the old style box monitors the screen is just in a different league (never mind the weight difference.....those old box monitors weighed a ton). The buttons work well but are not is the best positions, however I rarely use them. Another negative is that there are not built in speakers. However I find the screen speakers are usually terrible quality so not bothered at all about not having them built in.
The price is the final amazing aspect of the screen. I would gladly pay £200 for the screen yet the current price on Amazon is £89 free delivery!! It is a truly ridiculous price, when considering all other screen of that spec are easily double the price. The monitor comes very well packaged so do not worry about it being damaged in transit if ordered from amazon.
Grab a bargain, buy it now!
