BenQ GL2750 27” LED monitor delivers vibrant image quality with ease. The monitor is simply designed to give you the best video quality with minimum configuration. Due to large in size it is obvious that they occupy a wide space on your desk. In this article we are going to talk about the 27” LED monitor. After using for some while you will probably get addicted to a widescreen usage. The monitor delivers a vibrant image output that gives soothing eye experience.

Design:

 
BenQ GL2750 features a simple glossy black body. Now there are different models available under the same series. Some of them come with HDMI and some of them do not. BenQ has not specifically divided them into different model numbers which actually makes them a bit confusing to define the monitor series. The model that we have has a DVI-D and HDMI Socket with Speaker and audio jacks on the backside. So this would be the most latest in GL series or any other. While there are 4 more models on with different connectivity options. Those are model with analog input only + speakers, model with dual input only, model with dual input and speaker and model with analog input only. Here dual input means HDMI+DVI-D connectors. And analog means VGA port. So when you are buying, you must properly check on the backside what all connectors are offered. It is recommended to go with Audio + Dual Input + Analog, the same monitor that we are testing here. In the package you are only going to get a vga cable, cd and monitor stand. This is a common thing in many other different models. The manufacturer does not offer you HDMI or DVI-D cable.
 
All the control buttons are on the right side at the edge. They are not on the front side. This is clickable button while other brands offer you a feather touch output. 27” screen gives maximum visibility. Loaded with BenQ Sene Eye 3 technology you can expect a vibrant look from it as well. Adding a speaker in the monitor is wise that helps you to get a low decent audio output. It is not really great. But with 3.5m cable you can simply get a proper audio if you are not sitting too far. While for multimedia it is recommended to hook a 2.1 speaker. You can simply connect that to the monitor directly. If you feel that there is some issue with the output, the cd offers you driver file. But it is better that you rely on the drivers of your video memory.  The keys on the right consist of Auto key that offers you instant calibration. Menu key: that activate OSD menu to make changes in the monitor settings. Display Mode is from where you can see the screen output based on different video mode, and a multimedia key to control the volume of monitor speaker. From the OSD you can configure various aspect of monitor. Like Saturation, Color, Sense Eye, Picture Mode, etc.
 
Performance
 
BenQ GL2750 features LED screen. That means you can get vibrant color quality on it. It has a nice output but as I said you must sit a distance when you are using it, that is, for gaming as well for watching movies. It is an ideal choice for watching movies or working on video editing. Due to high resolution and widescreen you get ample of space to work with the right output that you cannot expect on small monitors. With rich color rendering and dynamic contrast the output is great. Sometime it causes eye strain also. In any case, what I found good in this monitor is detailing. Ample of things our eyes will not be able to detect. But when you play good HD videos on fullscreen the color detailing is quiet nice. You can feel the output of HD video output. And above that, this monitor is power efficient. After running a few HD videos on the screen randomly you can get the right effect from distance. If you sit too near to the monitor the screen simply irritates. While at a decent distance the video quality is great. At every section the video looks vibration. The dark part is more darker. BenQ GL250 offers a mixed combination of good brightness, contrast and color. For gaming it is a great choice. Compared to analog input if you hook it on hdmi then you can expect much detailing, which is possible on GPU only. Your integrated video memory can fail on that. 
 
With maximum resolution of 1920×1080, videos work great on the monitor. For reading it is a bit pain. As the screen is wide, when you open any ebook or website, the screen captures the entire page. The fonts look very tiny on that. You have to zoom in properly so that your eyes can get appropriate visibility. That is not a negative aspect; it is common in almost all widescreen monitors. 
 
Conclusion:
 
BenQ GL2750 is an ultra seek model available in 27” widescreen series. LED offers more clear output. The monitor is able to deliver the right video output on all kind of videos. If you are having low resolution video, then simply they will get blurry on fullscreen, because the video driver will try to stretch them making visibility worst. It works simply well with HD videos that are atleast 720p in resolution and it is best if they are in 1080p. It is an ideal solution for blu-ray players. The cost of BenQ GL2750 27” is between Rs. 15000 to Rs. 20000. We are not having the exact price. But it lies between that ranges. 
 
Pros:
  • Vibration Image Output
  • Brilliant Color Output
  • Good Contrast and Brightness
 
Cons:
  • No USB
  • Outdated OSD Menu
