My thoughts on the BenQ GW2765HT for photography.
Let’s start out by saying that it is a good compromise between performance and cost. At $299.00 it is an excellent performer.
With an 8bit processor it technically only produces 16.7 million colors, although it is a dithered monitor capable of 1.07 billion colors which puts it at 99% of the Adobe RGB color gamut.

We recommend calibrating any monitor you choose. We use the X-Rite i1Display Pro in our shop. With the BenQ, calibrating and creating an ICC profile is simple and straight forward.
Once your monitor is calibrated you are ready to process photos and achieve the true colors this monitor is capable of. We love the smooth gradients and rich colors on this monitor. We have also found that for printing what you see is very close if not spot on to what you get when using the manufacture ICC profiles. We have only tested the papers we maintain in stock. Certain Moab, Epson and Hahnemuhle profiles.
