Today we will be looking at a monitor from BenQ that's intended to serve as a multi-purpose monitor for the home and office.
BenQ has sent us the EW2775ZH
which is a 27-inch 60 Hz monitor that retails for $190 on Amazon and comes with 3 years of warranty.
It comes with an AMVA+ panel, a max resolution of 1920 x 1080 and a somewhat adjustable stand which we will talk more about in the next page.
At $190, the BenQ EW2775ZH is positioned toward the mid-end of the multi-purpose monitor market and competes with other 60 Hz monitors on the market such as the ASUS VS278Q-P, HP 27er, ASUS Designo MX259H, and ViewSonic VA2759-SMH. These monitors are all 27-inch, come with an IPS display and have a 60 Hz refresh rate, and are priced around $180 to $200. Like the BenQ EW2775ZH, these monitors are also designed to be all-purpose.
The BenQ EW2775ZH supports features such as Brightness Intelligence Plus Technology which helps reduce eye strain in any lighting environment by detecting your ambient conditions and automatically adjusting brightness, contrast, and color temperature without sacrificing image quality. It features a matte finish which makes it easier to see the screen under bright lights.
Moving on, the BenQ EW2775ZH has a response time of 4 ms and a native refresh rate of 60 Hz.
Typically gamers are looking for a 144 Hz refresh rate G-Sync/FreeSync monitor but that does not mean that you can't game on the BenQ EW2775ZH.
I tested this monitor by playing GTA V and Hitman (2016) and I had a pretty good gaming experience so I can definitely see this monitor being used for gaming as well.
This is an 8-bit panel so that means it can display 16.7 million colors which is plenty for most and it supports 72% NTSC color gamut which is roughly equivalent to 100% sRGB coverage. BenQ is using an AU Optronics AHVA+ (Advanced Hyper-Viewing Angle) panel on their EW2775ZH monitor which is a VA type panel that's designed for great color consistency and viewing angles. TN panels on the other hand have washed out colors, the viewing angles are not as good and the color quality is not as accurate as that of an IPS or VA panel.

The monitor comes in a simple cardboard box which weighs around 6 kg. The features of the monitor are listed at the bottom-left corner and also on the sides of the box. Looking at the top left corner of the box, we see the name BenQ logo and the 'EW2775' series number next to it. Underneath this, we see 'eye-care' which is the main feature of this monitor.
The included cables are high quality and durable. The components inside are well packaged and everything feels well secured inside the box. Inside you will find the 27” monitor, the stand, power cord with an adapter, 1x HDMI 1.4 cable, and the manual.
The monitor is protected by two high density foams as shock absorbent and plastic wrapping to prevent any accidental damages during shipping. Overall, the packaging is very good and the product arrived to my house in perfect condition.
