BenQ's latest is something that ticks all of the right boxes - QHD 1440p resolution, excellent colour depth, a high 144 Hz refresh rate, low-response time. Plus, it also ticks a few boxes of its own thanks to the inclusion of decent in-built speakers, a remote control, and HDR support that offers up great out-of-the-box setting for movies and games.
The IPS panel here is impressive, thanks to the excellent colour output (95% of DCI-P3) in addition to the overall brightness. Compared to a VA panel the increased sharpness and vibrancy of an IPS panel is something we’ve always been drawn too – even if black levels and contrast don’t quite hit the same cinematic highs as what’s possible with a VA panel. Going IPS, the result is a noticeably crisper image, something that games and general PC usage tends to benefit from. As a DisplayHDR 400 certified display the HDR output is generally good and pretty-standard when viewed in the form of an entry on a spec sheet. Where it comes alive, so to speak, is with BenQ’s own HDRi modes.
