Can I use an MDSVSENOR3 (came with my NEC monitor) with this monitor?
Asked by: Thomas
No, the MDSVSENOR3 is only compatible with NEC monitors. You would need to get a new calibrator in order to calibrate the BenQ PhotoVue SW272U 27" 4K HDR Monitor, (B&H # BESW272U). I recommend the Datacolor SpyderX Pro Colorimeter, (B&H # DASXP100).
