What customers say about "Key Specs"
BenQ SW2700PT Photography Monitor
  • It's much bigger than my previous screen, and the clarity of 27" is fantastic.
  • This has to be a bargain if you are happy with 27 inch.
  • Excellent 27", 2K monitor with a great display! Saved myself a fortune.
  • Size and detail of 27" screen make managing my photos more precise.
  • I don't feel I'm getting the best sharpness on 2k screen.
BenQ SW270C PhotoVue Photographer Monitor
  • Blown away by the quality of this 1440p monitor.
  • If 4K is too expensive or overkill for your needs, the 2K BenQ SW270C should make a great choice for photographers.
  • 27-inch monitor built for photographers, and it acts as a successor or upgrade to the popular SW2700PT that's been around for a few years.
  • The display has a 2560x1440 resolution, which many photographers prefer for editing images, as 4K can be overkill depending on the content at hand.
  • Honestly, the resolution of 2k not enough fo me, but otherwise the monitor is decent.

What customers say about "Features"
BenQ SW2700PT Photography Monitor
  • The build quality is brilliant. Stand is easy adjustable.
  • The puck controller is hand for quickly changing between colour modes allowing for me to proof my work in various colour spaces.
  • As a photographer this monitor makes my life so much easier when it comes to retouching.
  • It shows my RAW files from a D810 in their full glory and has made editing so much easier.
  • Slight critcism of the very small buttons underneath the base frame - very awkward to operate.
BenQ SW270C PhotoVue Photographer Monitor
  • High-quality build with versatile stand and convenient controls.
  • Wide, sturdy base holds a rotating vertical arm to which the monitor attaches, and there's about six inches of movement for height adjustment.
  • It's compatible with a 100mm x 100mm VESA mount and this is really great.
  • The stand is heavy enough to balance the display no matter how it's sitting, and everything can be adjusted with one hand.
  • The small dial to program through the various set ups is not intuitive and not well designed.
