Intelligent Control
A nearly invisible sensor detects ambient light and evaluates screen content. Then, it optimizes display brightness and color temperature for an improved image.
Improved Clarity
BenQ's proprietary HDRi technology improves image contrast and clarity for greater details. Dark corners reveal what they're hiding, and bright areas are not overexposed.

I would recommend the PD or SW series for photographers. If you decide on the EW3280U I would recommend using DCI P3 color space for your entire work flow.

How sharp is the image and what is the framerate ...

How sharp is the image and what is the framerate at non-native lower resolutions? Looking at other BenQ models like the BenQ PD3200U, reviews suggest that the monitor's scaling/interpolation blurs the image a little. I assume this is unavoidable, but am curious how it works for this and other new monitors.
Asked by: Karl
Depending on the connection type and the resolution the frame rate can range from 30Hz to 75Hz. At less that native resolution you will run into issues of more than one pixel being used to represent what should be one pixel and that can reduce the sharpness of the image.
