What customers say about "Key Specs"
BenQ PD3200U Graphic Design Monitor
  • This is a great 1440p monitor. I have no regrets purchasing this over the other monitors I was looking.
  • For office work, the monitor offers 32" of real estate, a 'low blue light' mode to take care of your eyes.
  • At this resolution working on multiple windows at once is practical - and it's great to see photos at high resolution in all their glory.
  • At the moment I am very happy with it, it is huge and you can really notice the resolution boost.
  • It is possible to work in 4K without increasing the size of the letters or icons much. On the other hand, I did not have any flickering problems.
BenQ EW3270U 4K HDR Video Enjoyment Monitor
  • What I liked about this monitor is that it is 4K, 32", has Freesync, and HDR.
  • 4K is impressive, 32" is a nice large size. Good price and value for this.
  • This monitor is my first 4K monitor/screen. And I happy with it.
  • Watching 4K content on it whether it be Netflix or Youtube, the quality is amazing.
  • My gaming laptop doesn't quite have the power to output games at 4K 60fps but seeing the games at 4K quality anyway is very nice to see.

What customers say about "Display"
BenQ PD3200U Graphic Design Monitor
  • This monitor is great, beautiful color image and sharp.
  • Outstanding image quality with QHD (2560x1440) resolution, combined with a robust frame and stand.
  • For video/picture editing, the monitor offers excellent color reproduction, real blacks.
  • The colour and uniformity of the display output is stunning, everything looks fresher more vibrant with more depth.
  • The colour and sharpness of this monitor is fantastic as well as having a huge screen area to work with.
BenQ EW3270U 4K HDR Video Enjoyment Monitor
  • The picture quality is pretty decent and seems to be fairly low input lag for gaming.
  • The viewing angles are brilliant, as BenQ state, 178o from all sides is about right.
  • Very rich colours, I went through 3 x 3440x1440 ultrawide monitors all giving me blurry and pixelated text in windows before I went for this one.
  • Unfortunately, the quality of this VA panel is not great.
  • Color reproduction is bad. Out of all the pictures modes on offer, only one seems to be even remotely acceptable, Photo Mode.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
BenQ PD3200U Graphic Design Monitor
  • My laptop has an old GeForce 650M graphic card and surprisingly handles 2k resolution with this monitor very well so far through the displayport.
  • Decent port selection, I'd love to keep it as far as it can live.
  • All the cables you need to connect up to graphics card are supplied and, by the way, great connection options.
  • The USB ports placements on the back side of the monitor, facing down. It makes it a bit difficult to plug something in.
  • Since this monitor was released in 2017, it would be nice to be a bit more future proof.
BenQ EW3270U 4K HDR Video Enjoyment Monitor
  • I got it primarily for Xbox 1 gaming, with some Netflix and Amazon Prime viewing. Ports are good spaced and easy to hook up.
  • Used for a bit of photo editing with Lightroom, plugging a MacBook Pro into it with USB C, which works great.
  • Hooked up with PC and PS4 the monitor does performed quite well.
  • DisplayPort 1.4 Cable is a must. Without it, you will not be able to set the output to the highest possible standard.
  • Had some issues with the USB-C connection kept cutting out.
