You may think that one computer monitor is much like any other but you would be wrong. Monitors come in different sizes, different styles with different abilities and uses. Enter this contest and you may discover just how great a monitor can be: the prize is a BenQ Zowie Gaming Monitor that is very light, and is designed to handle the faced paced demands of today’s video games. It’s perfect for the student heading back to school, or any home where the computer does more than just spreadsheets.

What makes a monitor great

We are long past the days where the computer monitor occupied a major portion of your computer desk, and was a pain to move because of its weight and awkwardness. Monitors in 2017 keep getting thinner, lighter and brighter so you can work and play without getting eye strain, move them without getting a hernia, and place them on almost any table or desk and they don’t get in the way.

The prize for this contest is a great example of what I’m talking about. The BenQ monitor has the features that anyone would covet in a monitor. The bonus comes if you are into video games, and especially eSports, since this monitor is designed to refresh very quickly so that your focus remains on the game, not on the flickering screen.

BenQ Zowie Console Gaming Monitor Features

We recently sent this monitor to independent blogger Chris Loblaw for an unbiased review. Read the full review yourself, but here are some features that he called out as especially useful:

  • easy setup: great for everyone who upgrades their monitor
  • light and portable: great for taking to eSports turnaments
  • fast refresh rate of 1ms is faster than most televisions
  • black eQualizer setting: allows you to enhance the blacks with dulling the whole scene
  • low blue light: drastically reduces eye-strain
  • flicker free: flicker too can cause eye-strain
  • non-reflective frame: another feature meant to enhance the gaming experience

Right now you may be thinking, “how can I get one of these?” There are two ways: you can just go online and purchase one from Best Buy (that’s the easiest way); you can also enter this contest. Even you don’t need a new monitor yourself, you probably know a student who’ll be going back to school in the fall who would love to get a BenQ gaming monitor.

Win a BenQ Gaming Monitor Rules and Regulations

We frequently have many contests running at Best Buy so check out the “contests in progress” page for more great contests to enter.


  1. ‘fast refresh rate of 1ms is faster than most televisions’, ’cause faster is better

  2. Using the computer is a big part of my everyday lifestyle (work + entertainement) so it’s a big burden to the eyes so all the upgrade that reduce the eye-strain is a big plus.

  3. The easy set up is a feature that I like. Being able to get rolling right off the bat is awesome

  4. flicker free: flicker too can cause eye-strain because my kids will have less eye problems later on. thanks

  5. Low blue light is the best feature because I spend endless hours staring at my monitor and my eyes get so strained from it. This feature would make it less painful.

  6. The “fast refresh” rate of 1ms is my favourite feature as it would help to keep me focused and also help reduce my eye stain. Thanks Best Buy for the chance to win this 24inch BenQ Zowie console gaming monitor. Fingers crossed!
