BenQ’s EW line-up has been around for a long while and they’re emphasis has always been about Eye-care and the BenQ EW2775ZH brings eye-care to the next level with Brightness Intelligence Technology.
What the Brightness Intelligence Technology does is that it adjusts brightness according to the ambient lighting, thus making it more comfortable for your eyes. In other words this means less strain on your eye, and better for your health.
The BIT button is located at the front of the monitor, not to mistaken for the POWER ON button. More details at the official product page.
If you are observant, you’ll notice that the BenQ EW2775ZH’s finishing is as if brushed-metal which I think is a really nice touch. It does look elegant and apt for all sorts of environment.
The BenQ EW2775ZH come with 2x HDMI, 1x VGA and a host of audio connectors.
Audio connectors? Yes of course, the BenQ EW2775ZH comes with 2x 2W speakers right at the back, it isn’t much but it gets the job done if you just want audio.
Look closer at the image and you’ll see the control buttons are at the bottom side of the screen, along with an LED indicator that’s light green in color.
I like it that the BenQ EW2775ZH has a thin bezel design, the panel is of VA with 178 degrees viewing angle and 60Hz refresh rate.
As with all other BenQ products, the unmistakable user interface is as such and it’s great to see that BenQ always uses the same interface and assigns physical buttons that response to the on screen interface.
I think the key feature of the BenQ EW2775ZH is the Brightness Intelligence Technology.
To see how it works, I’ve decided to let my camera do the talking. Armed with my Nikon D750 and had the interface set to shutter priority mode and spot metering, I pointed my camera to the screen and have the value taken with ambient lights ON and OFF.
True enough the BIT on BenQ EW2775ZH does adjust brightness, the shutter speed went from 1/160 to 1/100 – that means the brightness level is reduced by almost half.
When it comes to colors, the BenQ EW2775ZH looks great. VA Panels have come a long way. I have many VA panels screens in my lab and I think they do have great colors.
Note that this is not a gaming oriented monitor nor professional oriented, but you can very well use them for both. Put it simple the BenQ EW2775ZH is an all-rounder, and a great one at it.
The BenQ EW2775ZH retails at RM 799, it’s an excellent monitor of which I see fault on it. Sure, it could have used a DisplayPort instead of having 2x HDMI but that’s just preference rather than a product flaw.
Overall I’m impressed by this monitor, especially the Brightness Intelligence Technology feature of which I think monitors should have.
