Celebrating Minimalism at Its Finest

Everyday Enjoyment for Leisure and Business

A perfect embodiment of The Bauhaus’ “less is more" minimalism design philosophy, the GW2870H is a delightful complement to almost any modern space. Every aspect of its form and feature is reduced to unify simplicity and functionality into pure aesthetics. On top of it all, users get to enjoy the sheerest visual pleasure and optimal eye comfort with BenQ’s exclusive eye-caring technology. The GW2870H is not only a celebration of minimalist lifestyle and modern sleekness but also the gateway to everyday enjoyment for leisure and business.


Designed Simply for the Ultimate Sophistication


“Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” - Leonardo da Vinci

Exquisitely refined to complement your home and office, every detail of the GW2740H exemplifies the highest craftsmanship. The T-shaped base surface in the front is brushed with hairline treatment and adorned by a rectangular-shaped glossy black embellishment. The housing styled in black is fashioned with delicate patterns in the back to subtly catch the eye. With this classic minimalistic wonder, the GW2740H is everything you seek for the ultimate sophistication.


Flicker-free Backlight for Visual Pleasure


The Flicker-free Technology eliminates flickering at all brightness levels and reduces eye fatigue effectively. Conventional LCD screens flicker at the rate of 200 times per second. Your eyes may not see the flickers but they can certainly feel them. So relieve your eyes from the uncomfortable flickering effect by switching to a BenQ Flicker-free monitor.

Better Eye Protection 
With Low Blue Light Modes


Every Monitor produces a strain of blue spectrum light that is one of the critical causes of eye damage, eye strain, headaches and sleeping discorders. BenQ's unique Low Blue LightTM technology is designed to deal with the everyday problem of blue light exposure and allows healthier time spent in front of your computer. Switch to one of the four preset Blue Light Modes (Multimedia - 30%, Web-browsing - 50%, Office - 60%, Reading - 70%;) and reward yours eyes without having to lose the visual enjoyment.


3000:1 Native Contrast Ratio for Color Depth and Definition


An ultra-high native contrast of 3000:1, which is three times of that of general panels, adds astonishing color depth and definition to darkened, complex images with the greatest subtlety and clarity. With a native contrast ratio this high, you can expect an infinite dynamic contrast ratio that far exceeds your expectations.










True 8-bit Color Performance


An 8-bit VA panel delivers smoother and more stable color transitions by rendering a total of 16.7 million color shades simultaneously. A 6-bit panel with Advanced Frame Rate Control (AFRC) requires interpolation to display the same number of colors as a true 8-bit panel does.










178°/178° Wide-Viewing Angles


VA panels bring truly authentic colors and ultra sharp details from left, right, above and below to your eyes with a wide-viewing angle of 178°/178°. Viewing, as you know it, will never be the same.


HDMI Multimedia Interface


The latest HDMI high-speed multimedia interface* makes these monitors incredibly convenient to use - now you can enjoy digital entertainment effortlessly even with additional multimedia equipment in the future.


Win 8 Compatible


The GW2870H has passed Windows 8 certification and is fully compatible with Windows 8 color systems. Plug in the GW2870H monitor to your computer, and Windows 8 will recognize it instantly, making setup and connection effortless.
