BenQ PD2705Q Reviews

Issue with USB-C startup on M1 Mac Mini

By Harry
Rated 2 out of 5
Date: 2021-09-13

I have used this monitor for about a week and the monitor seems very good except for a USB-C startup issue when used with an M1 Mac mini. The monitor is on (power button is white) and upon startup of the M1 Mac mini, the monitor senses the startup but has not received a USB-C video signal yet and goes into energy saving mode (power button turns to amber) and the screen is black. The monitor stays in this state until you press the amber power button. The button immediately turns white, and the monitor is working perfectly at this point until the next startup. I have contacted BenQ and they informed me that a firmware upgrade is available to fix this issue. However, the monitor must be returned to BenQ for this firmware update (ie no firmware update available online). I have sent BenQ my monitor and hope the firmware update corrects the issue. If not, the monitor will be returned for credit. If the firmware work, I would give this monitor 5 stars. However, as is and no online firmware update, I have to give this monitor only 2 stars.

Great monitor for the price

Crisp, clear display with good colors. I think BenQ's own color calibration is biased (slightly cooler), which is particularly evident when next to my other monitor. There is some haloing, but that's to be expected at this price point. The overall construction feels solid. The stand is sturdy, the buttons are nice and well positioned. No complaints about the inputs and outputs. The addition of USB-C is great. I'm happy with this monitor overall, especially considering that some of the BenQ monitors that I have used in the past have had questionable QC. It's a great entry-level color accurate monitor, even if the colors may need some slight tweaking.

4th BenQ DesignView series monitor in several month

By Keiji
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2021-06-07

As a small design studio in NYC, we've been using Eizo monitors for many years for all color critical prepress and web projects. We test purchased our first BenQ PD3220U several months ago and liked it very much. We then ended up purchasing another PD3220U followed by two PD2705Qs for work at home. As they are quite well calibrated, we can work at our studio as well as at home pretty much seamlessly without worrying about color matching. We think 32 4K PD3220U is too high-res for graphic and web work, but this 2K PD2705Q is just about perfect in terms of space and resolution. And it's less than $400, or a quarter of less of similar Eizo's. Highly recommended.

Very  good value

The monitor was easy to hook up and get connected to my mid-2015 MacBook Pro (although I did have to go into the monitor settings and choose HDMI as that was not the default). As a graphic designer the color has nice depth and accuracy (in the sRGB color space) so it definitely fit the bill for my needs and price point. It also looks nice.

Close match for Apple's original Thunderbolt display

By Richard
Rated 5 out of 5
Date: 2020-08-07

The PD2705Q clones the display space of the Thunderbolt display (we're talking about the original T'bolt-- made from from 2011 to 2016). The PD2705Q's dimensions and resolution make it an excellent choice for any non-gamer who already has a Thunderbolt display and wants to move to a dual display setup. The visual hot areas of the two match to the millimeter. The result is that the PD2705Q is a Thunderbolt-equivalent visual surface. The active display areas can be brought to within 1.5 in of each other -- an inch for the T'bolt bezel + 0.5 in for the PD27'Q's. The PD2705Q has a smaller bezel so the overall dimensions are different but it's easy to align it's height so the tops and bottoms of the two displays are co-linear. This arrangement makes dragging a window from one display to the other is visually smooth. The mouse pointer can be moved from the bottom of one screen to the other without jumping up or down and without getting hung up at the edge. Why would anyone do this? Aren't there better displays than the now-ancient Thunderbolt? Well, yes, there are. LG makes a very nice curved display that fits the bill -- it is a 32:9 display that has the same overall dimensions as the T'bolt +PD2705Q. But check out the price of LG 49WL95C-W. If you already have a working Thunderbolt display, adding a BenQ will cost you around $400. There is some aggravation in cabling it up but it can be made to work quite nicely with the later model MacBook Pros and other computers. The PD2705P has limitations -- the sound quality is poor and there's the usual button mania with settings you will never use but the screen is sharp,bright, well balanced for color, and it includes a very nice, high quality metal stand that allows easy adjustment to bring the two displays in alignment. If you are a gamer this will probably not be satisfactory. But if you already have Thunderbolt display and want to double your visual workspace the PD2705Q is a great choice.
