BenQ SW2700PT - part 1 of 1 2 3

by Mike McNamee Published 01/10/2015


We tested the reference grade, 24-inch BenQ a couple of issues ago and so we were keen to see how this more budget oriented 27-inch offering performed. BenQ are a Taiwanese company who have traded since 2001 but their monitors are starting to gain a considerable reputation.

The SW2700PT is a 27-inch, 2560x1440 resolution with a claimed gamut coverage of 99% of Adobe RGB. At a price point of £499 inc VAT it is not a budget monitor and it certainly did not turn out a budget performance, indeed , as you will see, it was rather spectacular! The key features are listed.


Key features

  • 27" Screen - 2560x1440 QHD resolution
  • 99% Adobe RGB colour space
  • Hardware calibration allows users to adjust the 14-bit 3D Look-Up-Table directly without altering graphics card output data, ensuring that every photo is smoothly and consistently displayed just as it was taken
  • Controller included which allows users to switch quickly between three custom modes; Adobe RGB, sRGB and Blackand- White photo mode
  • Monitor hood included
  • Individual factory-tested colour calibration report included Palette Master Element software can be used with a calibrator to optimise the colour performance of the display
  • A 10-bit display panel for smooth shading and colour transitions in natural gradations
  • The monitor achieves an average Delta E≤2 and below for both Adobe RGB and sRGB, ensuring colour accuracy throughout project workflow as well as providing viewers with the truest impression of the original image
