Photographers. We're a picky bunch. Over time, we've probably all developed a fondness for those trusted tools which serve us well. Those tools which prove themselves to be both functional and dependable become a valued part of our working lives. I've certainly fine-tuned my gear over the years, holding on to those things which help get the job done and parting company with tools that don't deliver.

The SW320 is one of those few monitors with a size that most users have never seen because of its dramatically big size and its highest category. With the SW320, advanced professional photographers, video editors will have a screen for bigger needs: high-resolution photos, panoramas, HD and 4K video.

BENQ SW320 The consistent evolution of the SW-Family
The SW320 is a superbly designed monitor with exceptional UHD resolution, which I would not want to miss anymore at my work with Rhino. The anti-glare hood is really well-finished and special parts for protecting the right and left long side of the monitor are included in the package. Somewhere else you need to pay extra money for this.

REVIEW OF THE BENQ SW2700PT 27” DISPLAY A HIGH-END GRAPHICS ART EDITING MONITOR
This is my user review of the BenQ SW2700PT 27” display a high-end graphics art editing monitor. From the very first time I saw the monitor at a photography show I was delightfully surprised. Most have heard of BenQ monitors for the general public and gaming type of monitors being high quality for reasonable prices. BenQ has entered the high end niche market of graphic arts monitors for creation and editing with a product line up equalling the very best out there for an exceptional price point for an ultra complete offering.
From delivery until now while writing the review this monitor is a joy. My previous monitor was at the time the highest gamut monitor available (likely still is) the HP 2480zx Dreamworks. Splendid monitor for an extended gamut showing colours not possible on most other monitors had its advantage, yet it is a finicky monitor with problems of uniformity and difficult calibrations, with unsupported software. Over time the Dreamworks lost a lot of its luminosity falling to less than 90cd/m2 that gives a false impression of the documents true appearance.
When digital imaging arrived the need for a display that is calibrated and characterised became a necessity to see into the image like a portal for the information displayed. Without a display corrected to referenced colour knowing what the image really is cannot be realised. In the old days with CRT monitors the variations were extreme, profiling devices and software trying hard to make something out of the monitor that was reliable. Fast forward to today with only flat screen monitors with better consistency yet the problem of making calibrations and characterisation remains. Anyone serious in graphics arts has to be aware of the assurance brought forward with a wide gamut display with a tight tolerance in manufacturing and display controlling electronics. BenQ certainly fulfills this goal with honours.
