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.

Great gaming features, including low input lag and FreeSync support;Great accuracy out of the box

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

Review: Benq 4K 28 EL2870U monitor. What you should have on your desk (review)

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...

Consumer review (very.co.uk)

4K 28inch BenQ monitor with emulated HDR

 

Don't get me wrong, it's an excellent 4K set. Been used for a couple of weeks now and it really is a decent monitor. However, my only gripe is that the HDR isn't advertised anywhere as “emulated”, the box when it arrives even states HDR on the front,...

Consumer review (very.co.uk)

Not what it says on the description!

 

Bought this to play on my PlayStation 4. Already have a big screen but decided to get a small 4k but when connecting I discovered that the 4k is emulated and the PlayStation doesn't even register the screen as HDR compatible, shocking for the price and...
