    I wanted a faster-than-60 Hz monitor for smoother gaming but all the 144 Hz monitors in my budget have AWFUL colour and AWFUL contrast. I decided to try a 75 Hz (25% more frames than 60, eh?) and went for a Benq because my current monitor is a Benq that I was able to calibrate to a very high accuracy.(My experience includes calibration with a colourimeter, but some settings can be eyeballed with apporpriate test patterns available online.)+Fantastic value for money.+Decent contrast ratio – would probably get the quoted 1000:1 with the right settings.+White point got within 20K of 6500.+Gamma and greyscale ended up at reference levels – less than 1 dE thoughout the whole range.+Overclocks to 77 Hz (2 Hz is 2Hz, and it’s free).+Respectable pixel response/low smearing with HIGH overdrive setting.-Very disappointing gamut – it can’t reach all the way to any corner of the sRGB triangle, leaving full-stimulus colours under-saturated (best I was able to get was 91% sRGB – blues are noticeably purplish)-75 Hz only available on the HDMI, for some reason.-If I put the contrast at 50 or higher there was a HUGE change in white balance and a HUGE off-axis colour shift – it’s literally 49 = OK but 50 = too much.I wouldn’t call this a “gaming monitor”, but it’s a cheap monitor that lends itself to gaming – the difference between 60 Hz and 75 Hz is definitely noticeable. Do I prefer it to a “true” gaming monitor? At this price, absolutely – I care more about colour reproduction than frames, and I could spend twice as much as this and still not match the GL2480’s picture.

    Just to clarify as it’s not made clear in the description, and other reviews mention speakers.This monitor as sold June 2020 does NOT have any built-in speakers, it has a volume control but this only affects the headphone jack underneath the monitor. Had to return the monitor due to the confusion.
