BenQ GW2760HS

Originally reviewed by Andy Vandervell 12 July 2013

Best Monitor for Films

Key features:
  • 27-inch, 1,920 x 1,080 VA-based LCD
  • 3,000:1 contract ratio
  • DVI, HDMI and VGA connections
The key to what makes the BenQ GW2760HS such a good monitor for films is contrast ratio. A claimed native contrast ratio of 3,000:1 is around three times that of rival IPS-based screens, and we actually measured a contrast ratio of 3,200:1. The result is superior quality blacks that look less grey than on many other monitors, which is particularly important when watching film and TV.

Connections are ample, too, though we'd perhaps prefer two HDMI or a DisplayPort in favour of DVI. The GW2760HS has another benefit, too, it uses a 'flicker-free' backlight to help reduce eye strain. If you don't need HDMI, there's a non-HDMI version for a little bit less.

Price: £169 (£215 at time of review)
