Although it lacks height adjustment and uses a TN panel, its 1 ms response time and 75 Hz refresh rate make the BenQ GL2780 an attractive choice for gamers on a tight budget. The ongoing discount (on both Amazon and BenQ's website) brings this FHD 27-inch monitor to US$149.99, 29% down from the list price of US$209.99.

Unveiled in early September 2019, the BenQ GL2780 is the larger sibling of the 24-inch BenQ GL2480. Although these monitors lack a height-adjustable stand and their refresh rate is limited to just 75 Hz, BenQ advertises them as gaming monitors. While gamers on a low budget usually don't need NVIDIA G-Sync or AMD FreeSync support, the 1 ms response time combined with the discounted price of US$149.99 are two strong arguments in favor of the BenQ GL2780.

The lineup of GL and GW gaming monitors by BenQ is very popular on Amazon, with no less than 23,656 user reviews and over 1000 answered questions. Sadly, there is no separate rating for the GL2780, but the main difference between these monitors lays in their size. The Amazon global rating is 4.7/5, with 81% perfect reviews and 12% 4/5 ratings. The breakdown by feature highlights the quality of materials used (4.6), brightness (4.5), picture quality (4.4), gaming performance (4.2), screen quality (4.1), and sound quality (3.7).

In addition to the specs mentioned earlier, it should also be mentioned that the BenQ GL2780 sports a 27-inch TN LED panel with low blue light and adaptive brightness, as well as ePaper and Color Weakness modes. It also sports two stereo speakers with a power of 2 W each. The color gamut is rather limited, with a value of 72% NTSC. In terms of connectivity, everything is covered, namely HDMI, DVI, DP, and even VGA.

The BenQ GL2780 is covered by a three-year warranty and gets the same 29% discount (from the same list price of US$209.99) on both Amazon and BenQ's website.
