BenQ EX3203R

Review by Belgium Hardware
Review by Trusted Reviews

Matte curved 120-144hz 2560x1440 VA panel with AMD Free-Sync (40-144hz range) and fake HDR which causes problems.  It supports 144hz over Displayport with AMD cards, 120hz with Nvidia cards and 100hz over HDMI for both AMD and Nvidia graphics cards.  It suffers from more ghosting (dark color smearing) at 144hz when using Displayport with Nvidia graphics cards.

Matte 144hz, 2560x1440, wide gamut (DCI-P3/HDR coverage) IPS panel (unsure if AHVA or IPS) with AMD Free-Sync, Displayport, 2x HDMI 2.0, a remote control, USB-C and 3.5mm Audio Out.  The BenQ is preset to the M-Book mode which has very high, black crush inducing 2.6+ gamma and is not very accurate, but can be improved by switching to the vthe Standard Picture Mode which uses the native wide gamut which over-saturates SDR color (HDTV/REC 709 & sRGB) by 33%.   The REC 709 mode locks the color controls, has high, slight black crush inducing 2.4 gamma and is limited to 93.6% sRGB color space coverage which combined with the locked color controls, is below average.  The BenQ has negligible input lag (<4ms measured with the SMT Tool) and fast pixel response times when the preset AMA High Response Time setting is used, but it's not as fast as IPS competitors like the LG 27GL850 which Playwares measured a 3ms pixel response average time compared to the BenQ's 6-7ms average.
