BenQ GW2250HM


This 22-inch, Full HD VA-panel monitor for under £100 is a veritable bargain.

Superb value ; Good image quality ; Generous connectivity

Uninspired design ; Limited adjustability

BenQ has taken quality to new heights while taking price to new lows with this incredibly affordable VA monitor. The GW2250HM is the final nail in the coffin of cheap and nasty TN displays with their frequently terrible viewing angles and colour...

BenQ GW2250HM review


The budget end of the monitor market used to be dominated by cheaper TN panels, but we're starting to see more and more inexpensive screens with the supposedly superior IPS and VA panel technology. BenQ's GW2250HM is a 21.5in monitor with a VA panel...

Ben Q 21.5inch LED Panel GW2250HM : Ben Q 21 5inch LED Panel GW2250HM


Having recently looked at some 23inch and 27inch flat panels, here is a 22inch (21.5inch) offering that still supports 1920x1080 but is a lighter and cheaper unit, still this seems perfectly usable and if your budget is more limited…

It is 52x31x5cm, only 2cm thick at the edges. It comes with a simple 22x9cm oval stand that raises the screen 9cm from your desk. There is around 12 degrees of back tilt and a couple of degrees of forward tilt available, there is no side to side...

Wide screen an excellent display

The built in speakers are very poor. Unlike my old Benq monitor there is no built in amplifier. If you turn up the sound card volume to full, the audio is just about sufficient to be of use. Spoke to Benq technical support and it seems the speakers are...

Easy to setup, great image quality

Sound very quiet, I would have expected something louder. Barely audible at times, even with little background noise elsewhere, Can't hear BBC IPlayer over the steam iron.
