What customers say about "Features"
ViewSonic VP2785-4K 4K Ultra HD Professional Monitor
  • The KVM feature works fine, basically connecting two monitors and splitting the screen in half for each.
  • With the feature set this monitor offers, there is simply no better value.
  • Switching the input on the monitor makes all peripherals available to that station.
  • The build quality is excellent. The stand and monitor is highly adjustable and stable.
  • Seems well suited for professional photographers and video editors. The menu options are extensive.
BenQ SW271 4K Photography Monitor
  • Another main feature what made me buy this monitor was the ability to switch colour profiles on the fly along with the brightness.
  • Build quality is good, the supplied shade is excellent and it’s nice to be supplied with all the cables required in the box.
  • I love this monitor, it oozes with quality and feels very solid.
  • Editing photos and video in Photoshop and Premier is so much easier with so much screen space to play with.
  • The hood is a useful addition as mine is next to a window and it prevents glare onto the screen.

What customers say about "Connectivity"
ViewSonic VP2785-4K 4K Ultra HD Professional Monitor
  • I bought it for my boss so he could connect his Macbook Pro with a single USB-C to USB-C Cable. Really good.
  • The monitor provides plenty of power to keep the Macbook charged over the USB-C connection.
  • The display quality is great, and I love that the same cable that connects it to my MacBook Pro also powers the laptop.
  • Connectivity is excellent. Worked with Netflix Windows 10 app streaming a 4K movie.
  • After I connected it to the computer the Dell tower was unable to power up.
BenQ SW271 4K Photography Monitor
  • Wow just plugged it in - its beautiful!
  • USB 3 hub and SD card reader on the side work well.
  • I use the i1 Display Pro and, once you understand it, the results of the hardware calibration using the software seem excellent.
  • I also tried the enclosed cables, same problem, still only 8 bit output.
  • The only thing that annoyed me was the display port cable that came with the monitor. It was a DisplayPort to mini display port.
