LED Display Type
This PC monitor has an LED display type, which is typical of many PC displays of this type and age.
We compared this flatpanel monitor to all the other PC displays that have an LED Display and we think the e2250Swdnk[pl_1364842_price], and the i2476[pl_2279049_price] both from AOC or the Barco MDRC-2224[plb_2264118_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

We compared all the other PC screens with a built-in speaker to this PC screen and we think the AOC e2260Swhu[plb_1364850_price], the Samsung 320MXN-3[plb_1365711_price], and the Neovo HX-24[plb_1886037_price] which has better reviews is also worth considering.

Medium monitors that have been around for around the same time as the GW2765 have display colour counts of between 0.21M and 1,100M, and the average display colour count is 100M. At 1,070 million, the Benq GW2765 has a fairly many display colour count compared to most of the other PC monitors of a similar age and type to the GW2765.
Quite Bright Display Brightness
Across all the medium monitors that have been available for a comparable time to the GW2765 the display brightness range from 30 cd/m² to 1,700 cd/m², and the average display brightness is 280 cd/m². The Benq GW2765 has one of the brighter display brightness (350 candellas per square meter) amongst PC monitors of this age.
2560 X 1440 Graphics Resolution
The Benq GW2765 has a maximum resolution of 2560 x 1440. That's 78% more resolution than the most common graphics resolution of 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080). PC screens that have been around for around the same time as the GW2765 graphics resolutions range from 640 x 350 to 3840 x 2160.

5 Reasons Against
Not 3D Compatible
The Benq GW2765 is not 3D compatible. Most of the other LCD screens of this type and age are also not 3D compatible.
If you would prefer a flatpanel monitor that is 3D compatible then you might want to look at the AOC D2769[plb_1563236_price], or the Edge10 ES240d Slim[plb_1904863_price] which also has a higher rating.
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
The Benq GW2765 does not have a built-in camera. Most of the other medium monitors that were released around the same time as the GW2765 also do not have a built-in camera.
It is worth considering other PC monitors which also have a built-in camera including the Vk248h[pl_2395629_price], or the MK241[pl_2332619_price] both from Asus or the NEC MD211[plb_2590565_price] which also has a higher rating.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
The Benq GW2765 does not have an integrated card reader, although keep in mind that most of the other PC monitors of a comparable age and spec to the GW2765 also do not have an integrated card reader.
We think you might also be interested in other PC monitors which also have an integrated card reader including the U2413[pl_1565290_price], or the U2713H[pl_1518815_price] both from DELL or the Acer DA220[plb_1606986_price].
Only HD HD Type
This PC screen has a Full HD HD type, which is typical of many comparable spec LCD screens that are a similar age to it.
+2 More reasons against
Very Low RMS Rated Audio Power
PC screens of a similar spec and age to the GW2765 have RMS rated audio powers of between 0.5W and 49W, and the average RMS rated audio power is 5.2W. With an RMS rated audio power of only 2 Watts, the Benq GW2765 has one of the lower RMS rated audio powers amongst medium monitors of this age.
