What customers say about "Key Specs"
BenQ BL3200PT Designer Monitor
  • For the price its a great monitor, the resolution is good and makes multitasking very easy.
  • Great monitor - I would say 32" is right on the maximum size before you would want to go with 4k resolution.
  • This is the perfect monitor size/resolution in my view.
  • This 32" 2560x1440 res monitor seemed like the perfect size and resolution for me.
  • Excellent monitor, the resolution of 2560 x 1440 in 32 inches is great.
Samsung S34E790C UWQHD Curved LED Monitor
  • I bought this for gaming and it really does make games that support the resolution fantastic.
  • 21:9 3440x1440 is a superb resolution that gives you ample room to effectively split your screen into two for most of your general use.
  • If you are a gamer wanting a super-wide display (I bought the 34") then stop searching now and buy it.
  • Sure, not all titles support 3440x1440 resolution but this is easily overridden via the GeForce Experience app from nVidia.
  • The best monitor for gaming at this size, resolution, and aspect ratio.

What customers say about "Display"
BenQ BL3200PT Designer Monitor
  • Good coverage of the sRGB color space or Rec 709 once calibrated.
  • Great contrast for an LCD panel, light coating -somewhere between matte and glossy.
  • I like that it come without dead or bright pixel or sub-pixel.
  • Most of the many color presets are of limited value.
  • In practice the 'User' color preset is the only one which gives very good results.
Samsung S34E790C UWQHD Curved LED Monitor
  • Colour-wise, it is very easily calibrated to suit your personal preference via a little joystick on the back of the screen.
  • I found the colours out of the box to be a bit bright for me but a few seconds of tweaking allowed me to get them just right.
  • I modified colour/gamma/brightness settings and downloaded some colour profiles provided by other users and whilst I was able to improve it.
  • This is not an IPS display though, if you want to do design work or edit photos and get a uniform display look for IPS.
  • It made dark scenes in films and television look washed out as if the gamma was turned up really high - even though it wasn't.

What customers say about "Features"
BenQ BL3200PT Designer Monitor
  • Stand is solid with all the adjustments you're likely to need (height, turn, tilt and swivel).
  • Features that seem really sensible and logical that no other monitor seems to have just leave you wanting more.
  • It has some nice extra features, such as vertical and horizontal titling.
  • A remote control for the monitor options, and low-blue light options very good features.
  • The brightness adaptation feature (monitor brightness changes based on room brightness) isn't very reliable.
Samsung S34E790C UWQHD Curved LED Monitor
  • The screen in screen function is also Avery good feature.
  • Comes with a bunch of USB's as well which is a nice extra feature.
  • You can easily use 4 windows at once if needs be.
