Rated 1 out of 5 by from extremely poor quality I reckon this type BenQ 4k PLUS HDR for only 500+ AUD bucks has extremely serious HDR component issues. coz I bought the first one last month for X1X/PS4 gaming, then the HDR was extremely washed out in games when I turned on HDR setting on those 2 consoles within 3 weeks, I also found a defective green pixel on the central of the sreen. AND THEN, I replaced it to get the second same type which makes me speechless, the HDR just washed out immediately WITHIN 3 DAYS! So I returned it and got refunds...... you can search google about EL2870U HDR washed out. many people complained the same issue.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Make sure you mess around with the settings I bought this for my Xbox one X since my 4K tv is not full HDR. I wanted a monitor match all of the xbox specs and this monitor matched with 4K HDR 60hz and 1ms. Has some truoble at first getting the setting I wanted but thanks to the xbox calibration I found that some games including Halo 5 can run with sRBG which made my chin drop. It’s perfect for those looking to have an edge over those with just 4K since I noticed every movement with way less blurr.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Seems like a great deal... Not worth the hassle. I don't usually write reviews but I feel like this one warrents my time so you can save yours. I bought the monitor to go along with my new Xbox One X, it seemed like a great pairing as it has both 4K and HDR support and at a great price point. Initially the monitor worked great, and I was extremely happy with it. After about 2 days the monitor begin playing up. After turning it off it stays in a "burn-in mode" and flashes primary colours in a constant loop untill you turn it off completely or unplug it. This appears to be a factory colour test; it cannot be turned off. (Source: Reddit post of similar issues) This problem is annoying but something I thought I could live with. However, even more annoying is the fact that this also causes all HDR content to look washed out! Very faded and lacking saturation. It really makes the whole monitor unusable! Anyway, I took it back to JB and got it swapped out with no questions asked. (Great customer service JB Hi-fi, your staff rocks!) The second monitor worked great; this time for about 2 weeks. No problems at all. However the EXACT same issue has come up again this week, washed out HDR picture and "burn-in mode". I just think 4K HDR is just not reliable at this price point! That's 2 monitors with the same issue. It's a real shame because I own BenQ monitors for my computer and they work great. Look, I think I will swing by JB hi-fi on Saturday and return the monitor for the second time. However this time I will be asking for store credit and most likely look at buying a proper 4K HDR TV. A bit of an upsell I know, but this monitor is not really worth the hassle. Hopefully someone will find this review helpful, as I found it hard to find information about this issue online. Cheers

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product Bought this very recently. I am mainly using that for Xbox one. This monitor replaces my old BenQ RL2455HM gaming monitor. Happy with the choice.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Breathtaking Visuals The BenQ EL2870U aims to provide breathtaking visuals with its 4K display that is augmented by HDR compatibility and the brand’s Brightness Intelligence Plus technology. This model is ideal for all types of uses for both PC and 4K HDR console gaming on devices like the PS4 Pro. We loved the BenQ EW3270U despite its forgivable flaws, so an in-depth peek at the BenQ EL2870U is a must.
