Good display, ridiculous menu buttons, inconsistent color temperature
2 weeks ago
Summary: No back-light leak, to stuck pixels, which means no panel lottery here! Nice colour balance out of the box based on visual - have not checked with any calibrator. Non flickering design - no headaches for me. Removing 1 star for truly cumbersome front panel menu, which is supposedly "touch" buttons but in fact you have to hold your finger on led lights for 1-2 seconds to trigger action - ridiculously painful.
Summary: First, the quality of this monitor is exceptional. We bought two, and they are exactly what we needed for our CAD machines. They have a beautiful picture, and are perfect if you have a 2560X1440 or higher resolution video card to drive them. I especially love the stand and set-up. It needs no tools to assembly, and has exceptional height, tilt, and angle ranges. I would have given 5-stars except for one significant thing: The HDMI cable that ships with it is CRAP.
Summary: I am loving my new BenQ BL2710PT monitor. Tons of OSD settings- the controls take some getting used to, but are quite innovative. Gorgeous picture with my rMBP 15". LOTS of cables came included, EXCEPT the 2 that I needed: miniDisplayport to DisplayPort, and a power cable long enough to reach the floor at a stand-up desk. (both were minor issues) I researched thoroughly, and almost purchased the Dell 27", and then almost the Asus 27" monitors.
Summary: I had high expectation on this monitor especially there are so many positive feedback across the web given to this monitor. And I was wrong. The base is solid but that's about it. The control is touch sensitive, it's irritating to work with. Display is a major failure. I do not see how would any professional would use this monitor for CAD editing. Color temperature is uneven. Top left is noticeably warmer, with a tad of yellow tint than rest of the screen.
Pros: Solid stand
Cons: Excessive amount of light bleed that is very noticeable during normal usage. It is embarrassed to watch movies on this monitor with bleeds cover nearly 0.5 of the edge of the screen. Uneven colors and temperature. NCIX do not accept return of this monitor.
Excerpt: I was the proud owner of this monitor for a total of four days. I have returned it for the sake of the ViewSonic VP2770, you shouldn't get me wrong though. I thought this monitor was incredible which is why I give it 5 stars. I will write pros and cons on both monitors. I work with Lightroom and edit videos as a hobby... It doesn't take very long to notice the amazing build quality on this one, in fact you will notice it right after you open the box for the first time.
Excerpt: I'm a computer programmer and I needed a good display for my new Mac Pro (late 2013). I'm looking for a IPS LED monitor. The biggest reason why I chose this monitor was Flicker Free. Pros: 1) Easy on eyes ( doesn't use PWM for dimming control) 2) Works perfect with my Mac Pro using DisplayPort (1.2) 3) Excellent color. White is white, black is black. 4) Eco sensor saves a little more money (probably). Cons: 1) Mini displayport - displayport cable was not included.
Summary: I replaced a 28" display that was giving me eyesight problems after long usage. Read about the Low Blue Light capability, tried it, LOVE IT! Using this monitor makes a HUGE difference in eye fatigue. The stand makes it easy to move up/down and tilt back/forth. Rotating is possible, although only in one direction. Some stands for 27" displays do not have as large footprint, however, so I can't say this is a five-star display. I'd give it 4.5+ if I could.
