The BenQ RL2755HM is a 27-inch gaming display with a TN panel and a 1ms G2G (grey-to-grey) response time. BenQ talks up its gaming credentials for both PC and consoles, thanks to its dual HDMI ports and a few ergonomic tricks such as an extendable headphone rest and a stand that’s shaped for gripping joypads. With a price that’s reasonable and competitive with other 27-inch screens, the RL2755HM is certainly worth a look if you’re after an affordable gaming display.
We’ve seen some great displays from BenQ recently. The company’s high-end 4K BL3201PT treated us with superb desktop picture quality, good gaming performance and an excellent design.
The RL2755HM is aimed at the opposite end of the market. It’s far more affordable, and has a 27-inch screen rather than 32-inch. Based off TN panel technology with a 1ms response time, it’s a display that’s intended squarely at gamers, with features that will appeal to players of both console and PC titles.
This includes small additions such as the extendable headphone rest built into the side, and the rubber grip on top of the stand to hold joypads in place. There’s also a list of preset colour settings for specific types of game, which BenQ says have been developed with the help of both colour experts and pro gamers.
Many gaming enthusiasts play both PC and console games, so for some, a big consideration when choosing a display is the variety of inputs. Dual HDMI means, in addition to having a PC connection, you could plug in a Nintendo Wii U and an Xbox, and so on.
It’s only a 1080p panel though, when many displays of this size support WQHD (2560 x 1440) resolution. This might mean the Windows desktop icons are a bit too big for comfort, but depending on your taste, it may be just right for you.
Its viewing angles are quoted as 170 degrees horizontal and 160 degrees vertical, fairly typical of a TN panel.
There’s also a pair of built-in 2 watt speakers, another major consideration for a display intended for gaming. Many gamers rightfully shun built-in display speakers and rely on an external sound system, but it’s still very useful to have them included for situations when external sound isn’t available.
Featuring the company’s now-familiar design black appearance, with a subtle hint of red, the RL2755HM looks really good as well.
