    Great Monitor!

    Excellent color right out of the box. Love all the extra real estate over my 27. Works with my Mac Studio and have plenty of easy management features.

    Awesome Monitor for the price

    I've had this monitor now for about 7 months. I bought it back around October of 21'. And sure it is a few years old, it originally came out back in 2017 and a new version has been released since. But I got mine for about $770 out the door. I was considering getting Dell's 32 4k monitor for about $950, but after some research. This one was the overall better choice. Better color accuracy, supports 10 bit color dept while Dell's didn't and it was more cheaper. Probably my only gripe is that it has thick bezels, but so what. Once you turn it on and start working, it doesn't matter, the bezels aren't something you focus on and the picture quality is AMAZING. If you're on a budget and looking for a really good 32 4k monitor, this one is it.

    So glad I got this

    So far this monitor is performing as I had hoped. No flicker issues. I plan on using it for photo editing and have not done much yet but I will come back and add comments if anything relevant comes up. I had a compatibility question and used the B&H chat to get an answer. They even sent me and email with a transcript of the chat. Very helpful.

    It took a little fiddling to match the color profile of my MBP, but it is so far a great monitor with no issues. I will update as events warrant.

    High quality good product

    Great for coding/text

    By Jeffrey
    Rated 5 out of 5
    Date: 2021-10-24

    Bought 2 of these, and I am using them with Ubuntu MATE 18.04. I upped the DPI/PPI setting in MATE to 128 (slightly less than the true ~140 PPI of these monitors). I use them for coding and general text-based activities for work-from-home, and they are great for this purpose. Good color, good controls, and nice clear text from the 4K resolution. I don't game and I don't do photography, so I can't comment on these monitors for these uses, but for text they're pretty much all I can ask for. Keep in mind that the monitors are physically large and somewhat heavy. You'll need a decent size desk if you want two of them (I have them side by side), and you might want to consider VESA monitor arms for more flexible placement and so that the large stands are not consuming desk space.

    Terrible Light bleed

    I bought two of these monitors a few years ago and they worked fine (although picture quality was disappointing) for a couple years, and then light bleed started showing up on both of them. It's unusable now for graphics work. Never buying BenQ again.

    Specific to 2016 to present MacBook Pros, have you experienced the flickering issue? I know this has been asked previously, but I want to focus answers to 2016+ MacBook Pros. After reading the most recent reviews on Amazon, it seems the flickering problem is still an issue. Please describe how you connected the MacBook Pro with the monitor. HDMI? DisplayPort (DP)? Other? Thanks
    Asked by: Michael
    Hello there, while there is no know issue with Macs and Flickering. There is a issue with some of the older PD3200U monitors where we had to upgrade the firmware to address the flickering issue. Some of the older versions still in Amazon stock had the older firmware, which is why you saw these older reviews with the issue. This has since been addressed and resolved. However, this was at the start of July that the upgrades were pushed, so all current units will have the up-to-date Firmware. You shouldn't have an issue with this monitor and flickering if you purchase from BH photo. Warm Regards Sean BenQ Support.

    I am using Avid MediaComposer with AJA Kona 4 to send 4K video to PD3200U but monitor does not recognise the signal. If I change Kona 4 settings to 2K everything works but with 4K I get "no signal" from monitor. Any recommendations? This monitor is supposed to play 4K signal if I am correct.
    Asked by: Hermes
    Additional information is needed in order to answer. Can you please provide the detailed timing (example: 3840 x 2160, 23.976hz, 4:4:4, 10 bit) Sounds like it may be due to the bandwidth limitation on the HDMI 2.0 and could not reach the aforementioned timing.
