BenQ RL2755hm Review

BenQ RL2755hm Review

Plenty of monitors are designed for gaming, few are done so with the console in mind. The focus of todays content is though, this is our BenQ RL2755hm Review.

BenQ RL2755hm Review – Packaging and Bundle

BenQ package the RL2755hm in a fairly slimline box and inside the screen is wrapped in a foam bag and surrounded by polystyrene. Bundled with it we get a power cable, audio cable (3.5mm connectors) and HDMI cable. This is of course in addition to the product disc and documentation. Also present is the stand which arrives in two parts which we assemble and then screw on to the monitor. This stand allows us to tilt the display forward and backwards but not twist from side to side or change orientation. It also has a rubber edge which will assist in holding controllers in place if we set them down on this.

BenQ RL2755hm Review – The RL2755hm

BenQ go with a fairly thin bezel on the RL2755hm and on the bottom right corner we find the power button, menu button and input select/navigation buttons. Two 2x speakers are built in and in terms of specifications we have a 1920×1080 resolution on our TN/LED back light 16:9 screen. The Pixel pitch (mm) is 0.311, brightness is rated at 300cd/m2 and contrast of 1000:1. BenQ rate their viewing angles at 170/160 degrees and have colour ratings of 16.7million, with 72% NTSC Gamut.

One of the key features of the display is its 1ms Grey to Grey performance and there are built in colour profiles for various game genres, including FPS as well as 20 level colour vibrance control. Added to this is Black eQualizer which allows us to increase the brightness of darker areas on the screen without impacting the lighter areas. Fighting mode allows us to access colour calibration settings that help highlight characters in combat and blue light control allows us to minimise eye fatigue/strain. Finally we have flicker free technology and Smart Scaling which allows us to adjust the display area and scaling to our needs.

Turning round to the back of the screen we find a gloss panel and BenQ branding as well as a headphone holder. Beneath these are our inputs and those start with power and audio on the left. A kensington lock slot is also present. Over on the right are 2x HDMI, DVI and VGA.

For dimensions we have 479x640x214mm and the display can be wall mounted which changes the size to 378x640x59mm.  Power use is 24w with power saving/standby of 0.5w.

BenQ RL2755hm Review – User Experience and Conclusion

Before we talk about the performance of the screen, a few words on the interface for controlling our options. It can be seen below and overall works very well. We can quickly change between inputs and the key settings are in common sense areas. Full control of key settings is present and there are some nice extras like the ability to enable comparisons of modes (e.g. Senseye Demo). The only little thing we would change is to have the menu item selector cycle through from the end item back to the start automatically. As things stand, if you hit the last item you need to manually press up to reach the beginning again. This isn’t a huge issue as few people will spend much time in the menus but it is a nice to have.

Looking next at build quality we have a display which looks decent. BenQ have certainly gone down the traditional monitor route, rather than go for some more futuristic styling but the frame feels solid and there is a decent weight to the base. There are some nice design touches such as the headphone arm on the back, giving us somewhere to hang those and the controller friendly base is a bonus. The only design tweak that may have improved things would be to allow a twist action on the stand but again, just a nice to have. Connectivity is good also, maybe some would have liked DisplayPort instead of VGA, but thats about it.

As far as performance goes we have no complaints. The viewing angles are good, refresh excellent and brightness fairly uniform across the panel. Out of the box we did find that the image lacked a little contrast but with a screen like this we are encouraged to go find a profile/setting which suits our needs so this is not a huge issue.

Summary: Crisp, clear matt display with features aimed at gamers. Plenty of connectivity for those with multiple devices too.

    What would you suggest the best settings?? As very bright.

    • Thats a pretty subjective topic Gordon. The best thing you can do is work through the profiles BenQ supply. Work out which one is best in YOUR opinion and then from there have a think about whether there are any aspects you are not happy with and then tweak them specifically.

    Are the colors on point ?

    I was recommended this product by a friend, I’m only after a hd monitor that reduces lag between my console, is this worth the money or are there other cheaper monitors that do the same? I’m only using a ps4 not a pc.
