    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.

    This is a VA monitor, which is somewhere between TN and IPS in color accuracy. 6ms latency is kind of a downer though. Only DVI and VGA ports on this monitor.
