It’s not a monitor we’ve reviewed ourselves, but with a four-and-a-half-star rating average over 1500 reviews, it ticks all the boxes for a lot of consumers. It should suit a range of setups too, offering two HDMI ports, a DisplayPort port and a USB-C port too. There are also built-in speakers, but given our experience with built-in speakers, you’d be better picking up a dedicated speaker.  

There are a couple of things to note about the BenQ EX2780Q before you buy; it’s not 4K, it’s QHD (2560 x 1440) and although there’s a buttery-smooth 144Hz refresh rate on offer, there is a slight 5ms delay, which is fine for most but may not be quick enough for pro-level gamers. For other great options, we’d recommend taking a look at the best gaming monitor.
