Built for those who require precise color accuracy, the BenQ SW270C Photographer 27" IPS HDR Monitor delivers a wide array of features that includes coverage for 100% of the sRGB and Rec. 709 color gamuts, 99% of the Adobe RGB color gamut, and 97% of the DCI-P3 and Display P3 color gamuts. Also featured AQCOLOR technology, 10-bit support for 1.07 billion colors, a native resolution of 2560 x 1440 @ 60 Hz, a contrast ratio of 1000:1, and 300 cd/m2 brightness. Color accuracy is further strengthened using a 16-bit LUT that improves RGB color blending, plus Delta E≤2 in Adobe RGB and sRGB color spaces for a more representative view of the original image.
Those looking to work with the presentation mediums will appreciate the inclusion of HDR10 support for previewing your images. There is also an Advanced Black and White Mode to preview how photos would look before performing a conversion, GamutDuo Mode for the side-by-side preview of the same image in two different gamuts, and Uniformity Technology, which helps deliver precise color from corner to corner for more consistent viewing. Also notable is a native cadence for 24p and 25p content, meaning that film content shot at 24 or 25 fps can be played back without a pulldown.
The SW270C connects to your host Windows or Mac system using its HDMI 2.0 or DisplayPort 1.4 outputs, or take advantage of a USB Type-C port that supports video via DP Alt mode, as well as audio, device charging up to 60W, and USB 3.1 Gen 1 data transfer speeds up to 5 Gb/s. If your system doesn’t support USB Type-C, there are also two downstream USB Type-A ports and an upstream USB Type-B port.
The SW270C is a versatile display for photographers, videographers, artists, and designers of all types. Will it make the grade for your color-critical work? Feel free to leave your comments below.
