What customers say about "Key Specs"
BenQ SW240 PhotoVue Photographer Monitor
  • It is not 4K but I have no 4K video camera yet, so for me this still a good choice.
  • The screen diagonal is 24.1 ″, which at a resolution of 1920 × 1200 pixels corresponds to a pixel density of 94 ppi, which is pretty good.
  • Much larger than the average laptop screen and is a great size for looking at your photographs.
  • The diagonal of the screen of this monitor is modest at the present time 24.1 ″, the resolution is small 1920 x 1200 pixels.
  • 24-inches is smaller than some of the more professional or expensive monitors on the market.

  • 1920x1200 is a nice resolution and give a little extra space compared to the standard 1080p.
  • The pixel resolution for this size of monitor seems perfect.
  • Good resolution and scary number of 15 ms response does not scary at all.
