I took the BenQ SW2700PT monitor from BenQ distributor in Johor on 25th August 2016, exactly 2 weeks ago.
You can read about my story of how I got this monitor for reviewing at:
The unboxing story of the of the monitor at:
After using the monitor for 2 weeks, I can now share a more in depth feel of how the monitor performs. No, this is not a scientific test of monitor with all the specifications comparison data, etc., but more like a consumer review abeit a longer one.
Here’s how my monitor setup together side by side of my Dell monitor. On the right is Dell, on the left is BenQ. Their size are actually similar, but the BenQ with monitor hood looks bigger in photo. The dard edges are actually just the hood. Screen size is the same for both.
This is a 27″ wide screen monitor, which is really good for either viewing photo or text processing. I use my computer not just for photo editing, but also a lot of email reading and replying. So the extra real estate on the monitor is important to me. A high resolution monitor is able to give you good real estate yet still able to read the text comfortably.
Here’s how I arrange two browsers on my monitor when needed.
Now, this is a photographer’s monitor. Yes, many called this is photographer’s monitor.
Most monitor in the market are RGB or sRGB monitor, able to display a limited range of colour. This BenQ SW2700PT monitor is a Adobe RGB colour monitor, able to display wider range of colour as compared to sRGB. Blah blah blah…those are in theory…or on paper. I have read about that many times, but does it really matter or make a difference to our eyes?
SHORT Answer: YES, IT DOES!
Your eyes can tell the difference immediately. You don’t need a PhD to tell the difference in colours and quality of the two monitors. Below are some of the side by side colour comparison of the two monitors.
This monitor is a must have for photographers.
