Benq GW2780 has a good picture quality. The full HD resolution is the most common amongst monitors and is not bad. It doesn’t compare with QHD or 4K resolution of course. The contrast ratio is not that good though so you may see weaker colors even that this monitor has an IPS panel. Benq GW2780 has also a good response time which makes this monitor good for playing games. However, this monitor is not designed specifically for playing games. So if playing games is all you do, you should go for a gaming monitor. We will give 4/5 points for the Benq GW2780 review part of the picture quality.
Benq GW2780 does not have too many features but it does have the most essential ones. It has the flicker free tech that will make the pictures run smoothly on the screen especially if you turn also the AMA option on. It also has all the essential connectivity and built-in speakers which is great. Also it has low blue light feature so your eyes won’t get that tired after all. We will give 4/5 points for the Benq GW2780 review part of the features.
Benq GW2780 doesn’t have a bad design but it isn’t the best we have seen either. The color looks good but the frame is kind of thick. And it doesn’t have much flexibility either. We will give 4/5 points for the Benq GW2780 review part of the design.
