BenQ GW2780T and ScreenBar LED Monitor Light : Perfect for your Home Office


Still, working from home?

If you are working from home and only have your 14-inch laptop with you, it is time to consider an upgrade. You do not need to change your computer. Instead, just get another monitor ( the larger the better) and you would have effectively double your productivity.

There are many monitors out there in the market. You could opt for a basic display unit or consider one that has bells and whistles with one or two hidden tricks. Last year, we reviewed the BenQ GW2480T that is perfect for kids with its  Eye Care Technology. This time round we will review the bigger brother, the BenQ GW2780T that would be perfect for parents working from home.

Why the 27-inch screen?

24 vs 27 Inch BENQ
Admittedly, getting older means your eyesight will start deteriorating. For most adults after 40, losing focus near vision, called presbyopia, is a common occurrence. It would be hardly surprising that you would be reading this post with reading glasses if you fit into the age group. Having a 27-inch screen means you would have more real estate, making it easier on your eye in the long run.

On that note, even if you have a child at home, a 27 inch would be great if space allowed. More real estate means a lesser strain on the eyes so it is perfect for students too!

Like its smaller sibling, the BenQ GW2780T is laden with Eye care technology that will benefit the older folks too. There is the exclusive Brightness Intelligence Technology that automatically adjusts the monitor's brightness according to ambient light. Additionally, Low Blue Light Technology filter out harmful blue light to provide better sleep quality if you are using it at night. 

Great for WFH

For working adults who are in front of the computer for long hours, Flicker-Free Technology will help ease eye fatigue. Lastly, Colour Weakness Mode will give a better perception of Natural Colour by offering filters for red colour deficiency and green colour deficiency.

Bells and Whistles
Portrait Mode
The BenQ GW 2780T FHD IPS Panel is great for wide viewing. Additionally, it comes with a few additional features. 

The Portrait mode is something that most Monitors cannot do. That itself is like buying 2 different monitors for the price of one. With Portrait Mode, it makes reading easier and viewing of Instagram Stories much easier.

The height, as well as the tilt, is adjustable too. This would allow one to share the monitor with kids easily as it can be adjusted due to the smooth mechanism. Height is adjustable by up to 140 mm with a tilt angle of between -5 to 35 degree.

Lastly, having sound is a major plus. The Build-in Speaker of 1W x 2 is much louder than the laptop speakers. This is a plus especially when it comes to using apps like Zoom for Work From Home.

Connection wise is via HDMI, DisplayPort and D-Sub for various connectivity to laptops and other devices.

Stylish Design
Simple and Elegant
The BenQ GW 2780T may not win any award for design, but it is stylish in its own rights.  With the thin bezel, you will get a nifty package that does not take up much real estate for its size. The Monitor is lightweight and it's easy to move around with the handle on top.
