BenQ have made some good caming displays recently at 1080p.  However now 1080p is old news, so what do they have for us now?  Well sexy 4k goodness is what:
DSC_9096 copy32″ 4K, IPS, 100%sRGB – what more could you ask for?

DSC_9097 copyWell how about tons of modes to help graphic designers and CAD people, auto pivot, picture in picture, dual concurrent display from two sources and more.  Then the RevolutionEyes ZeroFlicker means a higher backlight refresh rate than the standard 200Hz that may lead to eye strain.

DSC_9098 copyIt’s not super slim, but slim enough, the back is also a bit lumpy, like this USB box was just tacked on afterwards:

So definitely some aesthetic improvement on the back could be done:DSC_9101 copyIn addition BenQ was showing the XL2730Z – Yes that’s another 27″ 1440P, this time of course a 1ms response time is going to mean a TN panel, but on the plus side we get 144Hz:

The description also mentions Adaptive-Sync and Motion Blur Reduction 2.0 which we take to mean freesync and some form of lightboost:
DSC_9090 copyThis one has balanced bezels, meaning that the bottom bezels is not larger than the rest.  This is good for multiple monitors in portrait.  The bezels are not huge, but also not the smallest. they could be.  This also gets the remote control for the OSD:
DSC_9093 copySo overall another good option for FPS gamers that we hope is competitively priced.  As you’d expect with TN, the viewing angles are not so great:

The back is however a little better than the 4k but still leaves a little to be desired:
DSC_9102 copySo some decent offerings from BenQ, we’ll have to see how they perform and exactly what they mean by the motion blur reduction.   Hopefully it’s a manual lightboost setting that can be set on the monitor itself.
