Why are Ben Q monitors considered bad?
What Miley Cyrus did was not twerking, it was windshield wiping

Dunno. I have the same exact one you posted early and it is a very good monitor minus the lack of speakers.

If you don't mind a bit higher response times, Dell have very good quality IPS monitors. Their ultra sharp monitors have adjustable stands which you can adjust up/down, tilt, and rotate. Also have USB ports too.

BenQ monitors are TN panels, which are much worse in picture quality, but allow 120 Hz or 144 Hz refresh rates.

Refresh rates that high really only matter in very fast paced shooters like Quake 3 and Unreal, which most people are too young to have even played.

IPS panels are really more for photo editing and professional graphics. But they can handle 60 FPS just fine.

Of the IPS variety, as far as I can tell the PLS panels seem to be the best ones, of which the Asus PB278Q is probably the best value at $550-$600.
