What customers say about "Display"
ASUS VP28UQG 28-inch 4K UHD FreeSync Gaming Monitor
  • It really is a great item that is big enough for gaming and takes advantages of the Xbox one x's freesync, 10bit color, and 4k.
  • Was expecting something worse! Now when I play in Full HD tv are nothing compare with the brightness and saturation of this monitor, amazing colors
  • Love the monitor, color is great and haven't noticed any flickering while playing my games (fps games)
  • First of all, you need the monitor to be eye level, this is because TN panels dont have the best viewing angles
  • The viewing angle is irrelevant it is virtually impossible to get a match for color, brightness and contrast with other monitors, it is way out of line.
BenQ EL2870U 28-inch 4K UHD HDR LED Gaming Monitor
  • It's bright and the colors are decent.
  • Colors look great, playing the new Age of Empires II DE was a truly mesmerizing experience.
  • During this time the monitor was pretty great, rich colors and great for gaming, very responsive.
  • It's a absolutely great monitor. Great sound, colors, menus.
  • The colors are terrible. They look washed out.

What customers say about "Features"
ASUS VP28UQG 28-inch 4K UHD FreeSync Gaming Monitor
  • ALSO another good thing is it automatically turns itself on, and to the correct input when you turn on a device connected to it.
  • Picture is very good, bright, powerful, fast, and can be adjusted. Nice features like blue light filters and modes etc.
  • Solidly built, it has enough features to make it very attractive for the price.
  • Picture quality is great. It does have sound, but that is not a feature I would recommend using.
  • This Monitor even has ok sound for a monitor. It's got a reasonable price and the monitor has many features on it, including game Plus.
BenQ EL2870U 28-inch 4K UHD HDR LED Gaming Monitor
  • The monitor features AMD FreeSync support (40-60Hz via both DisplayPort and HDMI) as well as a super resolution sharpening feature.
  • BenQ's Brightness Intelligence Plus sensor which can adjust the brightness and color temperature of the display based on room conditions.
  • On the front of the bezel next to the power button is a switch labeled HDR which controls the HDR mode as well as the Brightness Intelligence feature.
  • The main issue is the "auto brightness" feature called BI+ (Brightness intelligence).
  • I play Destiny 2. It does not work with HDR on this game.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
ASUS VP28UQG 28-inch 4K UHD FreeSync Gaming Monitor
  • The screen/video quality is excellent. The audio is not so well supported. If you are connecting, eg A Sky monitor, you cannot use the audio over DP or HDMI.
  • Screen is very bright so need to turn down and the only criticism I have is that the connection sockets are awkward to get too.
  • This is an excellent monitor. Good colour saturation, nice refresh rate and good connectivity.
  • I bought this and am sending it back. Connected to my iMac via a usb-c to hdmi lead, when I put the mac to sleep, this monitor would come on and say 'No signal.'
  • The ips glow is terrible when connected to consoles its that noticeable i have to look for a replacement
BenQ EL2870U 28-inch 4K UHD HDR LED Gaming Monitor
  • These are connected to my PC via Display Port cables into an Nvidia GTX 1080 video card with updated drivers.
  • The fact that this has two HDMI ports and a display port is a godsend. I can have my PlayStation 4 pro, Xbox one x, and pc connected to this thing.
  • The included speakers are a really nice addition for a monitor that connects via HDMI.
  • I Have also plugged in my PS4 via HDMI and configured it to HDR.
  • 2 HDMI ports and a display port are nice, you can have multiple devices plugged in and it does a decent job switching automatically.
