Benq GW2265 ReviewIn our subjective image tests, only solid greens looked a few shades paler than our reference monitor, as reds and blues looked just as bright and vibrant compared to our reference monitor side by side. Whites were a little grey, but blacks were very deep, reflecting our superb low black level reading of just 0.08cd/m².
The monitor's contrast levels were also excellent. Fine shadow detail was particularly well-illuminated in our night shots, and the monitor's matt finish helped to keep reflections at bay.
The GW2265HM's viewing angles weren't great, and the monitor produced a milky white sheen across the screen when we viewed it from the side and above. This shouldn't be too much of a problem if the monitor is intended for individual use, but it may cause problems if lots of people need to crowd round it to look at documents and presentations.
Viewing angles aside, the BenQ GW2265HM is one of the best budget VA monitors we've seen in recent months. It doesn’t have the greatest colour accuracy out of the box, but at this price we wouldn't expect it too. Its deep blacks and superb contrast more than make up for any colour deficiency, earning it a Budget Buy award.
