BenQ SW320

As photographers, we spend quite a bit of time post-processing images. During this process, making sure that we are looking at calibrated displays is extremely important, because it allows us to ensure that the images are edited properly and consistently. Unfortunately, high-quality displays are not cheap, and anything on the lower-end is often too big of a gamble, so finding the right monitor that has a good balance of price and performance is a challenge in itself. Thankfully, some companies have come forward with solutions that address this gap and one of them is BenQ. Unlike NEC and Eizo that mostly focus on high-end professional-grade monitors, BenQ aims at more consumer and enthusiast-level market, featuring products that deliver excellent value at very affordable price points. Within the past few years, the company launched higher-end displays that are capable of hardware LUT calibration and one such product is the BenQ SW320, a large 32″ 4K monitor with an excellent set of features and a comparably low price point of $1,499. I recently had a chance to test this monitor and I wanted to share my thoughts in this review with our readers.
