BenQ SW320

Review By PC Mag

Fully adjustable matte, wide gamut (98% Adobe RGB color space coverage after calibration) 10 bit 3840x2160 AH-IPS with a 14 bit 3D LUT, Displayport, Hardware Calbiration (requires compatible colorimeter; the X-Rite i1 Display Pro & i1 Pro 2 are the best compatible colorimeters), HDMI 2.0, mini-Displayport, monitor hood, perceived black depth increasing matte grey bezel, SD Card Reader, 2x USB 3.0 and 3.5mm Audio In.  The BenQ SW320 is preset to the Adobe RGB mode which vastly over-saturations the colors of SDR (HDTV/REC 709 & sRGB) color spaces unless the monitor is used with programs which support color management such as Photoshop.

The SW320 has negigble input lag (2.3ms top screen Leo Bodnar device measurement) and passable (but not great) overdrive (AMA Off; the preset High setting causes obvious overshoot ghosting) for media viewing and casual gaming.  The SW320 is a waste of money if not bought to make use of its Adobe RGB color space coverage and hardware calibration which requires a compatible, and ideally accurate colorometer such as the X-Rite i1 Display Pro & i1 Pro 2. though the hardware calibration BenQ offers is not as good as the programs offered by Eizo and NEC according to PRAD.

2017 successor to the BL3201PH/PT with equally as good performance (very accurate), a perceived black depth increasing matte grey bezel, HDMI 20 and an SD Card reader.

Matte, wide gamut, 3840x2160 VA panel with an extended color space, 40-60hz AMD Free-Sync and some HDR support (DCI-P3 color space coverage).  The EW3270U over-saturates SDR color (HDTV/REC 709 & sRGB) since it natively covers the DCI-P3 (HDR) color space by default (93.9%).  The EW3270U has an accurate sRGB mode (98.5% color space coverage with minor blue under-saturation) which prevents over-saturation and does not significantly under-saturate colors like some 4K 32" VA panel using competitors, but does lock the color controls.  The EW3270U has negligible input lag and decent over-drive for a 60hz VA panel when the default AMA High overdrive setting is used.

Matte, 3840x2160, wide gamut AHVA panel with partial HDR support, a remote, Displayport, 2x HDMI 2.0, USB-C.  The EW3280 offers accurate DCI-P3 color space coverage, but over-saturates the SDR color spaces by over 40% unless set to the REC 709 mode which has high (2.40) gamma and locks the color controls.  The EW3280U has good HDR accuracy but only partial support since it lacks local dimming, has low brightness and lacks a true 10 bit panel; the HDR mode is best left turned off.  The EW3280U has negligible input lag (2-3ms measured with the SMT Tool) and http://=https://pcmonitors.info/reviews/benq-ew3280u/#Responsivenessfast pixel response times for a 60hz non-TN panel when the default AMA High overdrive setting is used.


BenQ PD3220U

Review by =DEAD=

Fully adjust-able, matte, 3840x2160, wide gamut IPS panel with Displayport, 2x HDMI 2.0, 2x USB-C/Thunderbolt 3, 4x USB 3.1, 1x mini-USB and 3.5mm Audio Out.  The PD3220U is preset to the Display P3 mode which covers 94% of the DCI-P3 color space  over-saturates SDR (HDTV/REC 709 & sRGB) color by 33% and causes black crush due to the 2.6 average gamma.  The User Picture mode unlocks the color controls, provides accurate 2.2 gamma, but also covers the DCI-P3 color space (95%) and over-saturates SDR color by 38%.  The sRGB mode provides accurate color space coverage and gamma, but locked color controls.  The default AMA High overdrive setting provides good results for a 60hz non-TN panel, but =DEAD= does not test the input lag or signal delay.  The PD3220U is a good monitor for those who need to work with the DCI-P3 color space, especially when set to the User mode and calibrated, but there are better professional/wide gamut oriented monitors, and much better SDR color space covering monitors available.


BenQ SW321C

Review by =DEAD=

Fully adjust-able, matte, 3840x2160, wide gamut AUO AHVA panel with a perceived black depth increasing matte grey bezel, 16 Bit 3D LUT, BenQ Palette Master Element (hardware calibration), Displayport, 2x HDMI 2.0, USB 3.1, 2, USB 3.0, and SD Card Reader and 3.5mm Audio Out.   The SW321C has a mediocre 680:1 contrast ratio, is preset to the Adobe RGB mode which is accurate, covers 94.8% of the aRGB mode, and over-saturates sRGB color by 42%.  The sRGB mode covers 97.6% of the sRGB mode wh
