Phenomenal monitor - research solutions if you have any issues

Strengths:

This is the ideal blend of "a bit of everything" in a monitor. It's the largest size I am comfortable using for extended sessions. The colour accuracy, contrast, and brightness are all awesome. Viewing angle is good across the entire monitor for a centered observer. Freesync works flawlessly, and handles low framerates via doubling. Feels well-built and looks great! Doesn't look gamer-y, but doesn't look like boring office hardware either.

Weaknesses:

- ADAPTER NEEDED FOR VESA MOUNTING. This is a really weird design choice for BenQ, and I hear the adapters can be tricky to find (but you can DIY one). - The HDR is the bare minimum to call it that, but hey at least it works for HDR signals. - Viewing angles at the edges won't handle if you sit super close, so you'll lose a little bit of contrast at the edges.

Additional Comments:

It seems like many people have problems with this monitor, but almost every time there's a simple solution or they're doing something wrong. Can't get 100Hz working? Use a proper DisplayPort 1.4 cable or a USB-C cable (mine came with one of each). 100Hz flicker on some Nvidia cards? Set the max refresh rate to 99Hz. Colours don't look great out of the box? Switch to sRGB or use custom settings. Looks washed out? You probably have the gamma set too bright. Blurry gaming visual response? Set AMA to High/Premium.

No issues here

Strengths:

No issues running 2k 144hz. / 3k 100hz.

Additional Comments:

People here not doing it right are probably using a HDMI cable instead of DisplayPort.

Amazing Monitor

Strengths:

I have had nothing but a great experience with this monitor. Previous reviews had issues with frame skipping and other problematic areas but I have simply not had any of these. Resolution and pixel quality is astounding. I also have a Predator XB271HU and this BenQ blows it out of the water. I was worried about the overall size but once I started to use it for 10 minutes it was amazing, kinda hating my other monitor for its lack of size.... Additionally great colour spectrum and, for the issues others have had with the HDR, I have not had any. Also, you dont NEED free-sync to use this monitor. I am using a GTX 2070 and it is able to hand the 100Hz refresh rate no problem.

Weaknesses:

Little back light bleed but that is only expected with something of this size. Doesn't bother me at all. Wish BenQ had included a normal Display Port cable with this heavy of a price tag. Additionally there needs to be an adaptor for the lack of VesaMounting capability. It would improve this just that extra bit.

Additional Comments:

Overall, AMAZING monitor. Wish it included that cable and had the Vesa mount option.

Needs a lot of tweaking

Additional Comments:

The standard resolution and refresh rate produce lots of flickering. You have to use a tool to change the refresh rate to 99hz to get it to display at 100hz. Very strange but since Nvidia enabled support for freesync it's been a much better experience using a 1080ti. HDR is awful on windows 10 so stick with sRGB. Also, make sure the displayport cable you use is VESA certified to the 1.4 standard. I had to buy three different dp1.4 cables before I found one that actually worked for the high refresh rate.

Not a bad choice

Strengths:

Great Price HDR (when it works) Freesync (for AMD cards) Very attractive design if you dont want crazy colours and RGB

Weaknesses:

needs a lot of tweaking No GSync i guess the bezels are pretty thick windows 10 has terrible HDR support

Additional Comments:

it works really well. i have a 1080ti so i cant take advantage of freesync but it doesnt make a huge difference. takes some setting up and adjustments to get it to work for your tastes and windows 10 has really bad HDR capabilities but the sRGB setting is just great. I am planning on getting a different monitor, with Gsync, soon but this has served me well for the last few months.
