What customers say about "Display"
BenQ EX3501R Curved Gaming Monitor
  • Single player games such as Odyssey are quite fantastic on this display.
  • I seem to have received a very good VA panel.
  • It makes games look a bit more realistic and youtube HDR video's especially look amazing.
  • I have yet to test a 4k HDR bluray. Perfect image.
  • Great fonts, scaling, brightness (either high or low) no bleed through on edges. Love love love this monitor!
Samsung C34F791 Curved LED Gaming Monitor
  • The display has excellent constrast and colour reproduction.
  • Rich deep colours and a display that is easy on the eye and not to painful on the wallet.
  • The image is crisp and excellent, for a VA panel I think its on par with IPS displays.
  • The brightness is also good, I tend to use it on around 40 during the day and bring it down at night.
  • There are some images which cause the brightness or gamma of the monitor to change suddenly.

What customers say about "Features"
BenQ EX3501R Curved Gaming Monitor
  • One of the main reasons I purchased this monitor is the HDR feature.
  • With this wide monitor and with the capabilities of Windows and split screen features, its awesome.
  • This monitor as the best all around features for the money.
  • This is a very good monitor with many features.
  • There are features to auto-adjust the monitor's brightness and color to surrounding conditions.
Samsung C34F791 Curved LED Gaming Monitor
  • The menu - activated by a button behind the screen in the bottom right corner - is easy to navigate.
  • VA panel and understand those features this monitor is an excellent representation of what you can currently buy.
  • The OSD is a pretty standard, there's not much in there besides your basic monitor RGB calibration and a few extra features like PIP and PBP.
  • It also adjusts the tilt- meaning colour shift is a big issue as not all desks are the same height.
  • The monitor has VERY thin bezzles which run the perimeter of the display. On the edge there is this nice light glow effect.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
BenQ EX3501R Curved Gaming Monitor
  • The usb-c support is neat and the monitor can be used as a docking station with just the need to plug one cable to connect a laptop.
  • Cables for different connection types are included.
  • It was immediately recognized once connected and mounted as 2nd monitor.
  • I tested with multiple sources and connections, all showed the same results, a noticeably darker area.
  • There is however only 2 USB ports which is a little frustrating as I need 3 for my setup.
