    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.

    Hi guys, I just bought thi monitor, and I am mostly satisfied. Still, I got this problem: the USB plugs on the right side of the monitor doesn't seem to work. It is there anything I can do?
    Asked by: Robert
    Might be a silly question, but did you connect the USB A to USB B cable to a USB port on your computer? This in addition to the HDMI/Display port cable.
