The BenQ PD2700Q uses a matte 2560x1440 8 Bit +FRC AUO AHVA panel encased in a nice sparkly and coarsely surfaced matte grey plastic casing which has a fully adjust-able stand.  The PD2700Q has excellent preset color accuracy, fast pixel response times with minimal overshoot ghosting, negligible input lag and excellent resolution scaling which is good for those who play or watch both 720p (Xbox 360 & PS3) and 1080p content.

Matte fake frame-less 8 bit 2560x1440 LG AH-IPS panel with a height adjustable stand and  4x USB 3.0.  It has excellent preset color accuracy, fast pixel response times with minimal overshoot ghosting, negligible input lag and excellent resolution scaling which is good for those who play or watch both 720p (Xbox 360 & PS3) and 1080p content.

The BenQ PV270 is a wide gamut monitor created for those who calibrated their monitors use programs which support color management.  It has a 14 bit 3d LUT, color compensation, better color presets and overdrive (less overshoot ghosting) than the SW2700T, and BenQ's hardware calibration program, Palette Master works better with the PV270.


BenQ SW270C

The BenQ SW270C is a matte, fully adjustable 2560x1440 wide gamut IPS* panel with AQCOLOR, CalMAN Pantone hardware calibration, Displayport, 1x HDMI 1.4a, 1x HDMI 2.0, a monitor hood, an SD Card Reader, USB-C, 2x USB 3.0 and a 16 bit 3D Look Up Table.  The Adobe RGB, DCI-P3, M-Book and sRGB modes are all very accurate, and the sRGB mode provides from emulation with significant over and under-saturation, but the SW270C suffers from gradient banding both before and after calibration which is a shame since it has a 16 bit 3D Look Up Table.  The SW270C has fast pixel response times for a 60hz AHVA/IPS/PLS panel, and is free from obvious overshoot ghosting (AMA On), but has a 20ms  (measured by Playwares with the SMT Tool 2.0) or 31ms (measured by PRAD with an oscilloscope) delay or input lag.

Matte 144hz, 2560x1440, wide gamut (DCI-P3/HDR coverage) IPS panel (unsure if AHVA or IPS) with AMD Free-Sync, Displayport, 2x HDMI 2.0, a remote control, USB-C and 3.5mm Audio Out.  The BenQ is preset to the M-Book mode which has very high, black crush inducing 2.6+ gamma and is not very accurate, but can be improved by switching to the vthe Standard Picture Mode which uses the native wide gamut which over-saturates SDR color (HDTV/REC 709 & sRGB) by 33%.   The REC 709 mode locks the color controls, has high, slight black crush inducing 2.4 gamma and is limited to 93.6% sRGB color space coverage which combined with the locked color controls, is below average.  The BenQ has negligible input lag (<4ms measured with the SMT Tool) and fast pixel response times when the preset AMA High Response Time setting is used, but it's not as fast as IPS competitors like the LG 27GL850 which Playwares measured a 3ms pixel response average time compared to the BenQ's 6-7ms average.
