If you haven't heard LED backlighting is the new big thing when it comes to monitors and televisions and if there's one thing you should know is that LED is stunning to look at! LED backlighting makes the colours bright, bold and distinctive. Watching a HD movie on this monitor is like being at your local cinema, the quality is really that good. This is also a good buy for graphics designers who desire pixel perfect contrast.
Sadly this monitor lacks a HDMI monitor but thankfully you get DVI support and considering practically all graphics cards support it that isn't much of a problem. Playing games on this is also a joy, colours are vivid and blacks are actually black, you may think your monitor displays blacks but take at a look at LED monitor and you will quickly change your mind. The 1366 x 768 is slightly annoying but to be expected on an 18.5"monitor so I can live with it.
I've fallen in love with this monitor, its large enough for my needs, has amazing colour and just works. BenQ have done a fine job on this one.
This is the perfect monitor for those who understand what a monitor is for: great picture. O, did I mention it has LED backlighting? It is simple and it does what it's meant to do very well. Hook it up and you immediately see what I mean. For me the most important feature in a monitor is that it displays text well, because even though I do other things on it, I often spend long periods of time reading online. The LED backlighting basically makes the colors much brighter, fuller, and more accurate, the screen much thinner than the previous generation of screens, and essentially perfect contrast. All of these things make text easier to read, eliminating those headaches you might get with your current monitor. It has an equally big effect on the more fun parts of using a monitor: movies and games. Because of the huge jump in contrast with LED backlighting, every dark corner is clear as day and every overly lit scene is very easy to make out. If you've ever missed details in a journey through a cave or a fight in the dark, you'll know what I mean. It also has quite high resolution for a 19" monitor, giving you plenty of real estate to work with. The lack of HDMI can be an annoyance, but getting a DVI adapter is easy and cheap these days. Most computers use DVI anyway. This screen really turned me on to LED backlighting. Good work BenQ.
