I was contacted by a BenQ agent in Malaysia on 21st July 2016 to ask if I am interested in reviewing their flagship monitor for photographer…
the BenQ SW2700PT 27″ Widescreen LED Backlit QHD Monitor After some arrangement and negotiation, yesterday (25th August 2016) I went to pickup the monitor from an agent in Taman Daya, Johor Bahru. Drove 30+30km distance to retrieve the monitor, and only managed to find time to unpack it at night.
This monitor is targeted at photographers, and as the co-founder and admin of PhotoMalaysia.com, that’s the reason why BenQ wants me to review the monitor. A full review will be posted at PhotoMalaysia.com forum in 2-3 weeks time.
In Malaysia, this monitor is selling at Suggest Retail Price RM2999, and street price should be in the RM2700+ region. Not cheap for a monitor, but is it worth the money?
My current workstation is having two Dell UltraSharp monitors, their best range performance when I bought them. They are the Dell UltraSharp U3011 (30″, costs me RM3499 in year 2011) and Dell UltraSharp U2713HM (27″, costs me RM1619.10 in year 2012). It is interesting to see how this BenQ monitor performs as compared to my Dell.
Will update after I tested the monitor more. 🙂
