This year Duncan Woodward said “A cheap monitor with a trick up it's sleeve”. Duncan Woodward also mentioned “The general build quality is a bit cheap feeling”.

Benq PC Displays Have Excellent Reviews

Based on 10,132 user and expert reviews, Benq has excellent reviews for its LCD screens. Benq also has excellent reviews specifically for its small monitors compared to other brands.

Easy to Use

One Benq BL702 owner who reviewed it thought it was easy to setup. Sully wrote in their Benq BL702 review on Amazon “The monitor itself couldn't have been easier to set up, came well protected” and gave the Benq BL702 a score of 5 stars.

Good Size

One customer wrote in their reviews that the product was a good height.

Good Picture Quality

One person said in their reviews that the product had good colour saturation. Ejr wrote in their review of this PC monitor “The Windows 7 monitor calibration tool failed to yield a pleasant display with accurate colours” but they gave the product a score of 3 stars.

LED Display Type

This PC monitor has an LED display type, which is typical of many PC displays that were released more than two years ago.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative PC displays that have an LED Display currently available including the Acer V196HQL[plb_3049274_price] which is cheaper; or the HP W1972a[plb_1398440_price] which has better reviews.

1280 X 1024 Pixels Display Resolution

This PC monitor has a display resolution of 1280 x 1024 pixels, which is typical of many small monitors that were launched around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

1280 X 1024 (SXGA) Graphics Resolution

This LCD screen has a graphics resolution of 1280 x 1024 (SXGA), which is typical of many PC monitors of a comparable spec and age to it.

Chart Edit

Quite Wide Horizontal Viewing Angle

The Benq BL702 has one of the wider horizontal viewing angles (170 degrees) amongst similar spec LCD screens of this age. Across all the small monitors that have been available for around the same time as the BL702 the horizontal viewing angles range from 40° to 180°, and the average horizontal viewing angle is 150°.

Chart Edit

Narrow

Across all the small monitors that are a similar age to the BL702 the widths range from 100mm to 640mm, and the average width is 420mm. With a width of only 369 millimeters, the Benq BL702 is one of the narrower comparable spec flatpanel monitors that are a similar age to the BL702 amongst small monitors of this age.

If you are not concerned about having a wider width then you might want to consider the DELL E1713S[plb_1569069_price] (375.5mm and cheaper).

5 Reasons Against

Poor Product Quality

Two customers who bought it thought it was not good quality. In October this year Duncan Woodward said “Whilst not the best quality picture”. Ejr mentioned “Inadequate image quality and hard to adjust”.

Does Not Have a Built-In Speaker

Like most of the other LCD screens of this type and age, the Benq BL702 does not have a built-in speaker.

We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other PC screens with a built-in speaker and we think the Philips 200S4[plb_2083761_price]; or the Edge10 EF185a[plb_1760823_price], or the AOC E719[plb_2329258_price] are also worth considering.

Read more Less Chart Edit

Not 3D Compatible

The Benq BL702 is not 3D compatible, although keep in mind that most of the other PC displays of this spec and age are also not 3D compatible.

If you want an LCD screen that is 3D compatible then you might also want to look at the Neovo C-17[plb_2287203_price].

Does Not Have a Built-In Camera

The Benq BL702 does not have a built-in camera, although this is within the context that most of the other PC screens of this type and age also do not have a built-in camera.

Chart Edit

Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader

The Benq BL702 does not have an integrated card reader. Most of the other small monitors that were released more than two years ago also do not have an integrated card reader.

Chart Edit

Fantastic monitor. I have both my Amiga 500 using RGB adapter to VGA and Amiga 1200 with Indivision to DVI working a treat. I'm tempted to get another as a backup!

Perfect for retro gaming on an Amiga :) You wouldn't want to use this on any modern machine though!

It came in excellent condition, and it works excellently with my old Amiga 3000 computer using the computer's VGA port and RGB port (because the BenQ can scan down to 15 KHz).
