BenQ GW2765HT Review
The BenQ GW2765HT can be described as an affordable panel that offers considerably excellent image quality and combines the efficiency of IPS quality with the excellence of WQHD resolution. All this is offered to you at a very fair price. Having been released after the more successful TN based panels such as the BL300PT and PG2401PT, you should expect better quality and features from the BenQ GW2765HT. Let’s look at what this baby has to offer.
When it comes to connectivity, the guys at BenQ did an excellent job as virtually any modern hardware can be connected to the Panel using various connection ports. Of course the most important ones such as D-Sub, DVI, DisplayPort and HDMI are included and so nothing to worry about whether you need the monitor for gaming or home entertainment. They also included some stereo speakers and audio output ports. The audio output is excellent when using quality headphones but the built in speakers have nothing special to offer.
The BenQ GW2765HT comes with a glossy bezel, so you will need to keep your wiping cloth on arm’s reach as fingerprints will be all over your monitor. Although they have consistently used matte bezels, they did only use matte on the stand this time. Tilting and height adjustment is totally painless. If you would also need portrait orientation, BenQ got you covered as well. Apart from the glossy bezel, the BenQ GW2765HT should appeal to many users.
If we were to rate the BenQ GW2765HT in the most crucial areas for gamers as well as domestic users, this is how the result would look like.
Build Quality. It would get an overall of 9/10. The Monitor is steady and as mentioned tilting and height adjustment is very easy. Although it doesn’t have a rotation option, the base is round and so you can just turn it as you wish. The only downside is the glossy bezel; which I believe was fitted to cope with the price cut.
Picture Quality. The BenQ GW2765HT scores an amazing 9.5/10. The overall image quality was impressive with darker blacks and brighter whites clearly evident. Also remember it offers the WQHD resolution and at the same time offers the quality of an IPS. Side angle viewing was excellent according to various expert tests thanks to IPS technology. Motion blur isn’t something to think about when working with this monitor. What’s even more, you can scale up lower resolution content into 1080p although BenQ didn’t offer much on smart scaling like in other models.
After all is said and done, you will realize that this is just a mid range monitor specifically designed for the average gamer and movie enthusiast. Hardcore gamers should stay away from this device as it may be a bit of a disappointment. However, it can’t be a disappointment considering its relatively affordable price. Anyone who isn’t looking for a record breaking monitor for a cheap offer should be ordering the BenQ GW2765HT right now.
