    BenQ EL2870U reviews

    EL2870U 27.9" 16:9 LCD Gaming Monitor is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 2.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good picture, Bad color, bad menus The monitor is good on quality and sharpness. It is lacking in color. My old asus VX248H monitor had better color than this. If you try to use the menus without any source projecting on the screen you cant, and sometimes it doesnt auto switch inputs to an active one. I am returning it because of these issues and ill wait till a better 4k monitor comes out

    Rated 3 out of 5 by from Do not expect HDR.. The HDR completely washed out and close to black and white. Every thing else about the monitor is okay, colors are fine and 1ms response is awesome but its only 60hz. This monitor is fine for xbox one x and ps4 pro but its not that good for high end pc gaming.
