The BenQ Zowie RL 2755 looks like any other gaming monitor BenQ has made before. It is a widescreen 27-inch display with 16:9 aspect ratio and comes with bare necessities a monitor should have. The display is mounted on a fixed stand with only front, back lean adjustment. It is easy to setup -- all you need to do is attach the stand to the display that ships in single piece with the display. All the ports are placed at the back and accessible from the bottom, which means they aren't easy to use.
The BenQ RL2755HM's sleek, black design looks pretty spartan at first glance, but there are some neat features for console gamers hidden throughout.
The monitor's long, triangular base is coated with a strip of rubber at the top, which is designed to keep your controllers in place. While the base seems primarily contoured for the PlayStation 4 controller's rear triggers, I had an easy time resting an Xbox One pad on it, and had plenty of room to dock the two controllers side by side.
The RL2755 has a 60HZ panel with a response time of 1ms GTG. Compared to most gaming monitors, a 60HZ refresh rate is not a big deal. Some TVs have it too, which is actually a big deal for the IPS panels that otherwise have much better contrast, viewing angles and colour reproduction. BenQ Zowie RL2755 uses TN panels that are not best known for picture quality.
But during the gameplay, the display feels much more responsive compared to a TV screen. I tested it mostly with the Call of Duty, Far Cry and few other FPS games. The visuals are bright and there is no ghosting effect, which if present even slightly can misplace your aim in the game.
The RL2755HM's built-in speakers are a nice touch, but don't expect room-filling audio. The sounds of assault rifle fire in Halo and crunching bones in Killer Instinct sounded crisp, but even at max volume, I had to be right near the monitor to hear them well.
The BenQ RL2755HM features a 1920 x 1080 (1080p) native resolution, as well as a 60hz refresh rate. The panel used in the RL2755HM is an AUO M270HTNO TN panel, which is mainly designed to achieve the lowest response and latency timings.
Console games generally look crisp and colorful on the RL2755HM's 27-inch, 1080p display, though after a few days with the monitor, it became clear that this is a screen designed more for competitive gamers than those who want immersive picture quality.
