The BenQ VZ2470H is a brand-new model from the more specialised brand of the AU Optronics and it has landed well in the competitive market of the monitors. The price is competitive as well, at around 150 pounds / 170 euros. This model is one of the very few current BenQ screens which is based on a VA panel. BenQ have put the screen on a very interesting-looking asymmetric stand and enveloped the panel in white.
This model too, follows the same rule of not bothering with cable management and it, too, has two hdmi inputs, vga, audio and power which, unless you buy a separate bent cable, will take a lot of space at the back of the screen.
There is a clear benefit to the vertical alignment screens and that is the depth of black which provides excellent contrast. This is true for the VZ2470H as well, proven by the top result in our test. Also the minimal white brightness is nicely low. Unfortunately, BenQ loses some points in the colour display and temperature department bundled with colour and grey deviation. This carries over to the sRGB mode too. It is a shame because the uniformity is good, and the response times are good for an occasional gaming session. Surprisingly, the power consumption of this modern screen is a bit high.
