BenQ EX2780Q review | TechRadar

Two minute review

The BenQ EX2780Q is a $599 (£449, about AU$860), 27-inch gaming monitor that starts with the fundamentals, like a 1440p IPS panel refreshing at 144Hz and offering a 5ms GTG response time, but it expands on that in a number of ways. The first way it goes above and beyond your typical gaming monitor is with its 2.1-channel speaker design. 

For most gaming monitors, we’re lucky to even get speakers built in. Even when they’re present, they can feel like an afterthought. That’s not the case with the BenQ EX2780Q monitor. The pairing of two 2W speakers with a 5W subwoofer is surprisingly effective.

While watching The Witcher on Netflix or playing Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, the speakers were easily able to fill a 150 sq. ft room with clear and crisp sound. They don’t boom like a proper set of speakers can, but it’s more than enough sound for a large bedroom or even a small (and quiet) living room. It’s loud enough that we wouldn’t leave it at max volume while gaming late at night (the convenient volume wheel makes it easy to dial the volume down.).
