Excellent monitor. Very minimal bleed at the edges. No true black, but for editing and normal daily tasks it does the job, colors are vibrant. Response time can be annoying occasionally when coming from hibernating computer. Sounds is better than most stand alone speakers. On screen configuration options let's you optimize settings. The remote is a nice bonus.

Great picture and sound!

I use this for gaming (XBox Series S), Lightroom/Photoshop and general office work. The monitor has exceeded my expectations in all uses. As an added bonus, the integrated speakers/sub are surprisingly capable.

It is used for Photoshop/Lightroom editing. Very nice anti-reflective surface. Good sRGB gamut coverage (100%) and beyond (profiled with SpyderX Pro). The flat black/copper bezel is a nice touch (looks classy).

Excellent IPS monitor

It was a toss up between this monitor and the ASUS Tuff VG27AQ. I researched a lot of gaming monitors, took months of research. I weighed the pros and cons and this monitor came out the clear winner. RTings.com has the VG27AQ from ASUS on top of their list, but in my opinion, this one is not only equal, it's better. Had a TN panel before this and the colors of an IPS panel are far superior.

Substantial monitor upgrade

We were searching for a replacement of our Viewsonic 24 VG2455-2K to a 27 monitor to embark on a major scanning of historical photos and prints to be uploaded to Adobe Lightroom. In our research we came across the BenQ EX2780Q 27 monitor. We are now in our third week of work and the new monitor is absolutely amazing. Having the larger screen and higher refresh rate with the enhanced color features and Eye Care has really made a big difference in our ability to see old and new photos with a higher resolution and brilliant color rendition. This monitor works well with Lightroom and the Adobe software. We are seeing clarity and color we didn't even think was possible on a 2560 X 1440 monitor. We are very pleased with the high quality of this monitor and how it is meeting our photo editing needs. I would recommend this monitor.
