Quick OverviewModel - Benq EW2780
Ports & Slots
Designed for entertainment, including streaming, gaming, and viewing, the EW2780 27" 16:9 HDR FreeSync IPS Monitor from BenQ uses their proprietary HDRi technology and an integrated sensor to detect ambient light levels and assess on-screen images, allowing for customized color performance, detail, contrast, and image clarity. All of this helps to ensure details aren't lost in dark shadows and bright areas aren't overexposed. Stuttering delays and screen tearing are also virtually eliminated, thanks to AMD FreeSync technology, which dynamically adapts the display's refresh rate to that of your graphics card.
The EW2780 features a 1920 x 1080 native resolution with a refresh rate of 75 Hz, as well as an In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel, support for 16.7 million colors, a widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio, a static contrast ratio of 1000:1, 250 cd/m2 brightness, 81 ppi, and a 5 ms (GtG) response time. Using the 178° horizontal and vertical viewing angles, it is possible to watch content from virtually any position. This display has three HDMI 2.0 ports. Audio can be output using the 3.5mm headphone jack, as well as the dual 2.5W speakers.
BenQ has engineered the EW2780 with support for 72% of the NTSC color gamut, and their eye-care technology will help ensure greater user comfort during extended use. To further help improve viewing and accessibility, the EW2780 features a vertical tilt of -5 to 15°.
HDRi is your best defense against the dark. A built-in sensor detects ambient light levels and simultaneously assesses and adjusts on-screen images. Customized color performance, detail contrast, and image clarity deliver sharp images. Enjoy a visual experience that draws you into your favorite movies and games.
A nearly invisible sensor detects ambient light and evaluates screen content. Then, it optimizes display brightness and color temperature for an improved image.
BenQ's proprietary HDRi technology improves image contrast and clarity for greater details. Dark corners reveal what they're hiding, and bright areas are not overexposed.
Saturation and balance are refined for a refined color experience. HDRi takes color to the next level of accuracy and intensity.
BenQ entertainment monitors are designed around complete immersion. HDRi tech and 2.1-channel integrated sound give you cinematic picture quality and more immersive audio delivery. The EW2780 draws you into the action no matter if you're streaming, gaming, or viewing.

Since you will spend a huge chunk of your day looking at the screen, it is crucial to find a monitor best fits your needs. Without a good display, whatever you do on your PC will seem dull, whether you’re into gaming or any other stuff of your choice. There are tons of features and options to look out for when buying a monitor, so a close look is required beforehand.
Quick buying tips
Choose as per your need. If you are a gamer, you should look for a fast refresh rate and low response time. Professionals should seek color accuracy and for general use, users with less specific needs often opt for a monitor with high contrast VA panel.
Higher resolution for better picture quality. Resolution refers to the monitor's pixel density in length x width format. 1920x1080, also known as 1080p or full HD (FHD), is the baseline for a modern PC build. You’ll experience sharper images on a QHD or 4K monitor.
Required resolution for gaming: More pixels produce better pictures. But if you’re into gaming, those pixels can slow you down unless you have a beefy enough graphics card. Most video interfaces don’t support refresh rates faster than 60 Hz for 4K/UHD or 5K signals. Video interfaces are just beginning to support higher refresh rates at 4K resolution, but you still need a very expensive graphics card play at 4K resolution and push past 60 frames per second (fps).
The current sweet spot seems to be QHD/2K (2560x1440) resolution. With monitors up to 32 inches, you see the good density and a detailed image that isn’t too difficult for mid-priced graphics cards to handle.
If you want ultimate speed, FHD (1920x1080) delivers the highest frame rates (you won't find gaming monitors today with lower resolution). But avoid stretching that resolution past 27 inches, as you may notice a dip in image quality, with pesky individual pixels being visible.
Bigger is better. The refresh rate is described as a number in Hz, where the number is how many times your monitor refreshes per second. In other words, it's the frame rate of the monitor: the higher the number the smoother things will look. If you’re a gamer, the refresh rate is especially important, and you’ll want a monitor with at least 75Hz (most monitors designed for gaming offer at least 144Hz), combined with the lowest response time you can find. If you’re not into gaming, a 60Hz refresh rate should do.
Shorter is better. If you are a gamer, response time is a crucial feature for you. Longer response times can mean motion blur when gaming or watching fast-paced videos. The highest response time you’ll likely see is 5ms, while the fastest gaming monitors can have a 0.5ms response time.
Today’s LCD panels use three major technologies: twisted nematic (TN panel), vertical alignment (VA panel) and in-plane switching (IPS panel). Each has several variations with different advantages. TN monitors are the fastest but cheapest due to poorer viewing angles. IPS monitors have slightly faster response times and show color better than VA panels, but VA monitors have the best contrast out of all three-panel types.
G-Sync or FreeSync
Gaming monitors usually have Nvidia G-Sync (for PCs with Nvidia graphics cards) and /or AMD FreeSync (for the right running AMD graphics). Both reduce tearing and stuttering, although G-Sync monitors usually cost more than FreeSync ones.
G-Sync monitors operate from a 30 Hz refresh rate up to the monitor’s maximum. FreeSync displays are not as consistent. FreeSync monitors usually support adaptive refresh up to a monitor’s maximum refresh rate. But it’s the lower limit you must consider.
Regardless, if your budget only has room for a low-to-mid speed graphics card, you’ll want a monitor with either G-Sync or FreeSync with a low minimum refresh rate.
