BenQ GW2270H

TechLife Australia - - BARGAIN HUNTER -

A COM­PACT OP­TION.

MEA­SUR­ING IN AT 21.5 inches, the lit­tle BenQ GW2270H is great for smaller desks or as an af­ford­able sec­ond screen. Even bet­ter, it costs just $150, de­spite us­ing a higher-qual­ity VA panel with a 1,920 x 1,080 res­o­lu­tion.

Sure, it’s not quite IPS ter­ri­tory, but the GW2270H of­fers true 8-bit colour and wide 178-de­gree view­ing an­gles. VA pan­els also give great con­trast, and the BenQ screen ex­ploits that with a high 3,000:1 na­tive con­trast ra­tio.

The re­fresh rate is quite good at 5ms GTG, and we did not ex­pe­ri­ence any ghost­ing in nor­mal use, in­clud­ing light gam­ing. The screen is rated to dis­play 72% of the NTSC colour gamut, and gives a no­tice­ably bet­ter im­age than a TN screen. The GW2270H looks great on a desk, but only has ba­sic tilt ad­just­ment.

Con­nec­tiv­ity falls a lit­tle short as well, with DVI and VGA, but no HDMI or Dis­playPort.

For those who want a larger screen, an ex­tra $50 gets the GW2470, with the same specs but a 23.8-inch panel.
