8 Reasons For
We checked 8,803 expert and user reviews for Benq PC monitors and found that on average Benq has excellent ratings compared to other brands. We also found that Benq has excellent ratings specifically within its medium monitors range.
LED Display Type
This PC screen has an LED display type, which is typical of many LCD screens that have been around for a comparable time to it.
We compared all the other PC screens that have an LED Display to this PC display and we think because of it's better review score, the Viewsonic VA2214, and the Hanns.G HL226 (£89.99) is also worth considering.
20000000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
This flatpanel monitor has a 20000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, which is the most frequently found dynamic contrast ratio on comparable spec PC screens that are a similar age to it.
We think you might also be interested in some of the other PC monitors that have a 20000000:1 dynamic contrast ratio currently available including the VW2235 (£94.98), or the GW2255 (£91.02) both from Benq or the AOC E2470 (£89.99) which has a better Rating.
If the contrast ratio of this LCD screen is too low for you then you might want to look at the HL229DPB (30000000:1 and higher rated), or the HE225DPB (£74.98) (40000000:1 and higher rated) both from Hannspree or the Hanns.G HE247DPB (£92.99) (40000000:1 and cheaper).
Has a Built-In Speaker
The Benq GW2765HT has a built-in speaker. Most of the other LCD screens that are a similar age to the GW2765HT also have a built-in speaker.
We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative PC displays with a built-in speaker currently available including the Samsung S22A450 (£99.99) which is cheaper; or the E2278H (£124.99), or the E2273HDS (£104.99) both from iiyama which has a better Rating.
Fairly Large Color Gamut
With a color gamut of 100 percent, the Benq GW2765HT has one of the larger color gamuts amongst medium monitors of this age. The average color gamut of PC monitors that have been around for more than two years is 81%, and the color gamuts range from 62% to 110%.
Fairly Many Display Colour Count
With a display colour count of 1,070 million, the GW2765HT has one of the more display colour counts amongst LCD screens of this age. The least display colour count of medium monitors that were launched around the same time as the GW2765HT is 0.21M and the most is 1,100M.
+3 More reasons for
Fairly Bright Display Brightness
The GW2765HT has a fairly bright display brightness (350 candellas per square meter) compared to most of the other flatpanel monitors of this type and age. The dimmest display brightness of PC displays that have been around for a similar time to the GW2765HT is 30 cd/m² and the brightest is 1,700 cd/m².
Quite Fast Response Time
With a response time of only 4 milliseconds, the GW2765HT has a quite fast response time compared to most of the other similar spec LCD screens that have been around for around the same time as the GW2765HT. The average response time of medium monitors that have been around for a comparable time to the GW2765HT is 6.2ms, and the response times range from 1ms to 69ms.
7 Reasons Against
Price Has Increased by £8.88
In the last 45 days the GW2765HT has increased in price by £8.88.
Not 3D Compatible
The GW2765HT is not 3D compatible, although it is worth keeping in mind that most of the other flatpanel monitors of this age and spec are also not 3D compatible.
If you want a flatpanel monitor that is 3D compatible then you might want to consider the HP LP2065 (£110.40) or the Lenovo E2323 (£115.00).
Does Not Have a Built-In Camera
Most PC displays that have been around for more than two years do not have a built-in camera. The Benq GW2765HT is no exception to this as it too does not have a built-in camera.
We compared all the other PC monitors which also have a built-in camera to this PC display and we think the HP Compaq LA2206 (£83.99) which is also cheaper is also worth considering.
Does Not Have an Integrated Card Reader
The Benq GW2765HT does not have an integrated card reader, although keep in mind that most of the other comparable spec PC screens that have been around for more than two years also do not have an integrated card reader.
