This IPS (In-Plane Switching) panel features a 1920 x 1200 resolution to provide extra screen space so you can get more done. Along with the enhanced resolution, this monitor also features a 1000:1 contrast ratio, a 250 cd/m² brightness rating, a 5 ms response time, and support for up to 1.07 billion colors. Setup is simple thanks to HDMI, DVI-DL, and DisplayPort inputs as well as a dedicated USB 3.0 hub to connect USB compatible peripherals directly to the display. Once configured, the display can be maneuvered into place by tilting, swiveling, pivoting, and adjusting the height of the display to take full advantage of the 178° horizontal and vertical viewing angles.

99% Adobe RGB

The Adobe RGB color space offers a greater range of color reproduction for shades of blue and green, resulting in a more realistic color representation for outdoor and nature photography.

10-Bit Color Display

Enjoy smooth color gradations on a 10-bit display which shows more than one billion colors.

14-Bit 3D LUT and Delta E ≤ 2

The 14-bit 3D Look Up Table (LUT) improves RGB color blending accuracy, resulting in improved color reproduction. Having Delta E≤2 in both Adobe RGB and sRGB color spaces gives you a true and representative view of the original image.

Hardware Calibration

Hardware calibration allows you to adjust the image processing chip in the monitor without changing the graphics card output data. It keeps images consistent with its original copies without being affected by graphic settings.

Palette Master Element Calibration Software

With the use of Palette Master Element and a calibrator, you can tune and maintain the color performance of the monitor at its most optimal state.

Extra Space for Viewing Convenience

Enjoy the extra space offered by the SW240's 24.1" 1920 x 1200 screen size with 16:10 ratio - perfect for professional photographers, or just daily usage. The SW240's slightly larger size is perfect for viewing two full A4 sized documents side by side, allowing photographers to compare the content at a glance.

Color Mode HotKey

The SW240's inbuilt Color Mode HotKey allows you to swiftly switch between 3 preset color modes without having to press other OSD buttons. And you can also customize your preferred preset modes based on your own personal display needs by pressing the HotKey for 5 seconds.

Advanced Black & White Mode

View your photos in a black and white film effect. Choose from three different black and white presets to preview your photos in before you perform actual adjustments in your photo processing program.

Shading Hood

A detachable shading hood is available as an optional accessory for SW240 which can effectively reduce the monitor's screen glare resulting from ambient lighting, ensuring superb color accuracy required for professional work. The shading hood can be used for both portrait and landscape orientations.

Why do I need a DP cable run Photoshop? What is ...

Why do I need a DP cable run Photoshop? What is 10 bit and why is it necessary for P/S?
Asked by: Kathleen
My PC video card via the NVIDIA Control Panel (Geforce GTX 1050) and the BenQ SW240 allows a choice between 8 and 10 bit, RGB Full, using either Display Port (1.4) or HDMI (2.0b) which are (on-the-fly) selectible inputs by way of the SW240 menu system. Note that as of today the SW240 does not have the latest versions of either Display Port and HDMI. However, these limitations have to do with resolution (basically 1080p not 4k) and refresh rate (60Hz not 120). For me, 4k (native 2160x3840) in a 24" monitor would be difficult as a multi-purpose PC monitor; I chose 1920x1200 for easier visibility on a monitor this size. I say this because if I were using a monitor primarily for photo/video editing/digital drawing, watching movies, a higher rez monitor would be preferable. Ten bit will exhibit less posterization because having more colors available (as Barry stated here) allows for smoother gradients. A 10 bit monitor is part of a 10 bit chain (image manipulation file type print); if saved to jpeg, image just dropped to 8 bit. Perspective... Costco can photo print Tiff @ 8 bit max. Do I see a difference between 8 & 10 bit or Display Port and HDMI - yes to 10 bit over 8 very very slightly. This monitor's gray-scale (and gamma) is spot-on which makes accurate color levels possible.

On the BenQ website, the specs include "Card Reader - SD/SDHC/SDXC/MMC” I don’t see a card reader in the specs here. Does this monitor include one?
Asked by: Leanne
Yes. There is one SD card slot located on the back of the SW240 monitor just above the USB ports. Supported memory card formats are SD / SDHC / SDXC and MMC.

Why do I need a DP cable for Photoshop? Why is 10 bit color necessary in P/S? Is the 240 compatible with Macbook air 2020?
Asked by: Kathleen
A Displayport cable is only required if you are working with content in 10 bit, if you are not, you would not need a displayport cable. Yes, it is compatible with the Macbook Air 2020. You would need this cable which is not included. IOGEAR USB Type-C to DisplayPort 4K Cable (6.6') BH #IOG2LU3CDP12

Will this be a good monitor for both photo editing and gaming?
Asked by: Jason
Photo editing yes because of color and gray scale accuracy. This is an IPS panel with 1080p (bluray) resolution; not 4k (3840 × 2160). The response time is 5 ms - not bad gaming lag; but I'd do BenQ's higher resolution line for late model games - or a 4k TV. A lot has to do with your video card capability. I love mine as a business computer monitor with some photo editing... and good viewing angles.
