BenQ EL2870U

 

Budget-friendly and FreeSync-capable, the 28-inch EL2870U exhibits fast pixel response and minimal input lag that make fast-motion graphics a breeze, but it has some trouble with colors.

UHD (Ultra High Definition) resolution. Supports HDR content. Modest price. Very fast pixel response. Low input lag.

Mediocre color performance. Few ports, and poorly placed. Stand allows for tilt adjustment only.

Bottom Line: Budget-friendly and FreeSync-capable, the 28-inch EL2870U exhibits fast pixel response and minimal input lag that make fast-motion graphics a breeze, but it has some trouble with colors.

BenQ EL2870U gaming monitor review

 

What it lacks in speed, this monitor more than makes up for it in absolutely excellent picture quality.

Lovely 4K resolution and HDR tech ; Overall picture quality is top drawer ; Excellent price point

No G-Sync ; Refresh rate only at 60Hz ; Plain design

An excellent value 4K HDR monitor that retains a fast response time too. A refresh rate of 60Hz and no G-Sync will irk some, but for the price, this is an excellent monitor for gaming.

BenQ EL2870U 28" Ultra HD HDR FreeSync Monitor Review: Can't-Beat Price

 

BenQ's EL2870U is a TN panel with HDR10 support and FreeSync that offers good value to gamers and entertainment buffs alike.

Value ; HDR compatibility ; 24p cadence support ; FreeSync ; Build quality ; Out-of-box accuracy

Low native contrast ; 60Hz limit

The BenQ EL2870U shines when watching movies or performing general computing. It's good for FreeSync gaming, but hardcore players will want something faster. Value-conscious buyers will have trouble finding something better. But if you're willing to...

BenQ EL2870U review

 

Paper beats consumer

1ms response time is good for console gamers ; Good quality build ; Pricing could sway many

Near negligible HDR performance ; 4K is not appealing due to poor colour accuracy

A decent attempt to rouse spec readers but not enough quality to convince us

Excellent Monitor

 

Had this monitor about a week or so and am so pleased I got it. I bought it to replace a Benq monitor I had had a while. I wanted a 4k monitor for my PlayStation Pro and didn't think I would find a 4k one for the price it was. I read a few reviews...

Top Quality Budget 4K HDR Monitor

 

I've only had this display for a couple of days, however I'm really impressed with it. I've seen some other reviews here and elsewhere claiming this is not a true 4K display or HDR is only emulated and part of why I'm writing this review is to correct...
