General Features

The HDRi Advantage

HDRi is your best defense against the dark. A built-in sensor detects ambient light levels and simultaneously assesses and adjusts on-screen images. Customized color performance, detail contrast, and image clarity deliver sharp images. Enjoy a visual experience that draws you into your favorite movies and games.

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.

Vivid Colors

Saturation and balance are refined for a refined color experience. HDRi takes color to the next level of accuracy and intensity.

That's Entertainment

BenQ entertainment monitors are designed around complete immersion. HDRi tech and 2.1-channel integrated sound give you cinematic picture quality and more immersive audio delivery. The EW3280U draws you into the action no matter if you're streaming, gaming, or viewing.

Complete Immersion

The EW3280U is built to entertain. Clear images and vivid colors combine with crisp audio for greater realism. Combine that with its 24p cinematic frame rate and you'll experience movies and games on a different level.

Obsessed with Sound

With the EW3280U, BenQ turns an ear towards auditory innovation. 2.1-channel sound and a Digital Signal Processor (DSP) deliver a customizable audio experience. The dual speakers are also supported by a subwoofer for wider bass frequencies.

Your Entertainment, Your Way

The versatility of this monitor lets you determine when, where, and how you binge watch or game. Adjust volume or other settings with ease, even from across the room, thanks to an included remote control. On the monitor, there is also an integrated 5-key navigator and a volume wheel.

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.
