Does anyone know quality of these monitors? I never heard of the brand but when I googled it I see good reviews on bestbuy and Amazon. I only need decent height adjustable HD monitors to work from home setup. I bought two RL2460 monitors after this was posted. Now I am thinking if I should cancel the order seeing no one in SD community seems to care about these.

My brother who is a gamer says these monitors are the shiz. I don't know about the refurbished models but the brand itself is awesome

BenQ has been around for a while. They usually do professional so the average consumer might not have heard of them.

BenQ is a big brand in the world of "Pro gaming". I'll be ordering mine here soon.

Ordered one. It looks like the RL2455 is half on per Amazon's new price, so this seems like a great buy.

I needed to get a monitor anyways and I've been getting into the Smash Melee scene, so this was a 2-birds-1-stone kind of deal. Thanks!

Amazing prices. Can't comment on the quality of BenQ's refurb process, but the monitors themselves are top notch. Sad theres no 27" 4k at 100+Hz

I just received a refurbished BenQ GW2765ht yesterday and the screen was cracked. Quality looked good otherwise, just a couple of nicks on the base. Sent in RMA request immediately but haven't heard back 20 hours later.
Packaging could be better. Nowhere on the shipping box did I see it labeled "fragile". No foam cutouts either, just lots of various bubble wrap with some obvious gaps in protection.

On the edge here.. open for suggestions.. I need a monitor for connecting security camera system nvr for now. Budget ~150-250. Will need a monitor for a 10 yr old to play games in with Xbox/Psp (to buy around thanksgiving), like an hour/two per day.
I am thinking of RL2755 at 150$, but am open for suggestions.

That would be more than adequate.

However, I would reccomend trying to find a monitor with an IPS panel instead of TN. I imagine you'd want to be able to glance at the security cam at multiple angles - a TN panel typically has very small viewing angles and you need to be directly in front of it to see whats on the monitor. IPS panels have almost 180 degrees of viewing. Drawback of IPS though is they are typically more expensive, (higher response times - doesn't sound like an issue), and in general use a bit more power than TN.

A similarly priced IPS monitor: https://slickdeals.net/f/10508488-fry-s-email-exclusive-27-lg27mp59g-p-1ms-75hz-1080p-free-sync-gaming-ips-monitor-167-w-tuesday-promo-code?src=SiteSearchV2_SearchBarV2Algo1

You might also look at higher resolutions to use it for something else down the line but then you'll be paying more too.
