He likes it because he just does and it's all they need or want and you and no one else can say anything else about it because it is his OWN SUBJECTIVE OPINION. If it works for him then it does. Period and it's worth whatever that purchaser is willing to pay for it. PERIOD.

...and guess what. The market would seem to agree, because that's what we keep getting. You people seem to forget that WE'RE the NICHE. Not the other way around. Most people, right now, don't give 2 flying #&*@ about 27" at 1440p. We do, but they don't.


...and that's the truth of it.

Yes but the masses have never had the pleasure of gaming at higher resolutions so have no idea what they are missing out on. They completely miss the concept that you see more content on your screen and the benefits an IPS panel has like contrast, viewing angles and colours.

So their opinions mean squat.

I am aware of the benefits of 1440P and think they look great. But I choose not to run them because as surround user I don't care for the burden of having to power them, don't want 27 inch, 16:9 panels and they are more expensive. So instead I chose 24 inch, 16:10, 1200P Dell U2412Ms which were slightly better than regular 1080P but more manageable than 1440P. And the most important thing being the pixel density of a 1200P 24 inch screen is close to perfect.

They are not internet myths.

Only minor but not like I've read about terribl ones and stuff like "omg reflections I can't game on this monitor". When I game I can hardly notice them excpet If I try look for them. It's a trade. You get some reflections for clarity and crystal clear text wgich is really important on a screen except if you are doing something else on your monitor. What I want to say is that I research a lot about the glossy monitors and when I decided to buy the dell I have now i read forums and I saw crazy things. The point is now I understand the damage those plastic filters do on text and clarity. I prefer to have some minor reflections for better clarity rather than hazy text which is harder to read. For example look at Macs. They are glossy too. But you don't hear their users complaining about reflections. I believe all this happens because very few people have experience on those monitors and the first thing they say it's about reflections but they don't mention their positives. Matte ones are the same. You have no reflections but you have negative effects from this and because all those years almost all pc monitors are matte ones (at least most of them) we got used to it and now that some glossy ones appeared we think they are terrible because we are not used to them. After having experience with both I prefer the glossy for their clarity and "inky" feeling of colors along with the clear text which I love reading now.
Anyways I believe more glossy monitors must appear. As for the VA panel they are nice if we are talking about a cheap monitor like mine but for expensive ones I prefer IPS.

Do you feel better getting that out of your system? Clearly this forum isn't designed for the average user who is conned by a Best Buy employee. This article was posted here on overclock.net - which consists of enthusiasts and power users. I think it's a fair assessment - this is another 1080p monitor and therefore nothing special. I'm not even sure why this was posted here to be honest. When I browse the news forum I expect to see eye-catching headlines about new and exciting hardware - this is neither. Another 60hz 1080p monitor. Yawn.

The typical consumer will not have heard of BenQ. In Best Buy / Frys where your typical consumer will shop at a physical store, I've seen Samsung, Asus, Acer and LG monitors but no BenQ. I don't think I've even seen BenQ at Microcenter. This is a lost cause.

BenQ displays are right there as you enter the door to my local Microcenter, not sure what you're talking about. They even have Korean panels these days.

To be fair - even though 120hz TN isn't my cup of tea, BenQ is a major seller to the gamer-centric crowd. I certainly know plenty of gamers who love the 24 inch XL2420T, as an example.

I just don't see this particular screen as anything special. It isn't going to be the first choice for a gamer, and it won't be the first choice for someone who wants better color/higher resolution. Relegating it to the cheap 1080p screen crowd -- There are already _tons_ of 27 inch 1080p VA panels. Unless it's 2560x1440 or 120hz, it has nothing to differentiate itself from the crowd.

I was thinking about this whole display thing, again, and I found myself chuckling. While what I am about to say puts me in the extreme minority, it still lends a little credence to how one tech can impact another, or one company another....

If a company, like Ben Q, were to release a 24" 120Hz 1200P IPS Glossy screen, I would immediately step down from my 27" 1440P Overloard @ 120Hz. I would get rid of my current rig, and build an entirely new rig on a DTX or Micro-ATX case. I would make the move to small and silent, over the large footprint I currently have.

It's a little odd to see such a fuss over this thing. I can understand that there are some who would not buy a 27" monitor at 1080p, but those who act like companies have no business releasing such a product, or that consumers who would buy one are ignorant are IMO, blowing this out of proportion. This may not be a mind blowing new product, but assuming its not severely outclassed by other 1080p 27" monitors, it's just another option for people who are in the market for a monitor like this. Not every product ever released is going to blow the competition out of the water.

Precisely. There are other people besides us OCN types out there. To think otherwise is.......well, a lot of you need to be knocked down a peg or two.

(like I said, I too would prefer 1440p, apparently some missed that)
