The lockdown blues has maximized our screen time. We are all aware of the harm extended screen time can cause upon our eyes.

Hence, it has become quite necessary to choose a monitor, where we will be spending most of our time, with the utmost care.

The BenQ GW2480T comes in black colour. The company Benq guarantees a top-notch quality product that tries to raise no questions in the minds of the consumer. But is that so?

We present to you the BenQ GW2480T review that shall cater to your needs, well

My take on the Benq GW2480T monitor

I have found that external speakers or laptop speakers work better than the two speakers at the bottom of the monitor. 

It might not be the professional photographers choice, but normal average users can lay their hands on this as the image quality is excellent.

 I also really like the height adjustment feature. 

Another feature I like is the Eyecare technology and adaptive brightness.

For video editors, students and business users, I would recommend this monitor. It is worth the price if you primarily use monitors for programming, reading and watching videos as the text is not pixelated.

It is ok for casual gaming, not for hardcore gamers due to its low refresh rate and response time. 

A 3.5mm, headphone/ earphone jack, is also provided, but it doesn’t have any USB ports, which is ok for me.

It is quite pocket-friendly full Hd 1080p monitor, and I highly recommend it if you need the height adjustment, have a dual monitor setup, as this has very slim bezels and if you want flicker free and low blue light feature and do not want to strain your eyes.
