BenQ have recently released a new 27″ monitor in their Designer range, the PD2700U. The display is aimed at professional users, designers, CAD/CAM work and colour critical work.
The 27″ IPS-type panel has an Ultra HD 3840 x 2160 resolution for high levels of detail. There is reference grade colour performance offered by the screen with 10-bit colour depth support, 100% sRGB gamut and a range of preset modes for different applications including CAD/CAM, animation mode and darkroom mode. Factory calibration is included although there’s no talk of hardware calibration.
In other specs the IPS panel offers a 5ms G2G response time, 60Hz refresh rate, 1300:1 contrast ratio, 350 cd/m2 brightness and 178/178 viewing angles. There are 1x DisplayPort 1.4, 1x Mini DisplayPort 1.4, 1x HDMI 2.0 and 4x USB 3.0 ports provided for connectivity. The stand has a full range of tilt, height, swivel and rotate adjustments.
The screen also includes a KVM switch and screen daisy-chaining capability. The usual BenQ focus on eye care is included, with flicker free backlight, low blue light modes and even an ambient light sensor for auto brightness control.
