from completed build My first PC: $AU800 budget

BenQ GW2255: God, don't even get me started on this piece of ****... Okay so, first of all this monitor was $149 and was made by BenQ, so I assumed it had a HDMI port on it and that it would be really good. But, I was wrong. It only had VGA & DVI. I was devo. I payed $149 for a monitor with no HDMI Input. When my mum went down the street, to go buy herself a Samsung monitor for work, for $112, It had touch screen buttons and a HDMI input. Oh, I was pissed off. Also BenQ's drivers don't work, my uncle who's a tech expert didn't know what was wrong with the driver. I couldn't turn the brightness down due to the driver not working. So I had to download a third party program to turn it down, as the brightness level gave me headaches. I also can't get rid of the stupid 'suggested resolution' everytime I open a game. I've searched every where to fix this.

Love this little monitor. Great angles and the colour blooms off it.

Sadly is discontinued.

Better than TN, but not as good as IPS. Avoid if you are a competitive gamer. The response time is 6ms.
