      I purchased the BEN-Q 32" 4K display, but had to return it because there were too many glitches. I have a refurbished 2012 MAC Pro Tower (6 core cpu) 32 RAM, with a Sapphire HD graphics card, but it still wasn't suitable enough to power the 4k display via displayport. The screen would intermittently flicker, and that worsened upon multitasking activity.Even without multitasking it would glitch. I had everything closed with the exception of a NF movie. I opened the movie for full screen viewing, then the flicker was much worse. That was the moment I decided to send it back. Keep this mind if you plan to try 4K on an older machine, or one without a very high end graphics card. I decided to try the 27 IPS display instead, and it worked like a charm. The Adobe colorspace is excellent and the resolution is suitable for my needs. Everything appears sharp and crisp. You can easily adjust display settings with the provided controller. While I prefer the size of the 32 4K, the 27" display is still large enough to organize a layout for editing graphics, video and photography. I've only had this for a night, but I am very pleased with this monitor. I am not a gamer, so I can't speak for that end of things. I've loaded Adobe Photoshop CC to give a test run and the illustrations looked fantastic. I haven't sent out anything for print yet, so I am not yet ready to compare the screen work to actual prints. This is a very important feature since I work in graphics and photos for print. I will update the review once I have sent something out for print.

      I read a lot of really good reviews of this monitor before deciding to purchase it, but I'm not as happy with it as I hoped I would be. For one thing, I read that it comes with a hood, which I figured would be a great addition to the product. It's not so much a wrap-around hood as a number of pieces of plastic which snap together, and they do not supply you with the pieces necessary to make a hood for Portrait orientation. Speaking of Portrait orientation, it does not appear to be well made for using it this way. I feel like text isn't as sharp, and high-contrast edges have discolored artifacts. Very disappointing for what they charge. The colors may be accurate and the factory calibration is nice, but I expected better.

      Great monitor for movies and editing photos

      Whether you're viewing movies or editing photos, this is a great monitor. The included wired remote to switch between sRGB and Adobe RGB brings increased color accuracy when editing for online and print material. The overall color accuracy is spot on out of the box, though those who make a living off of it will want to do a calibration anyway. If you're watching a letter box movie, there may be a small amount of light bleed near the bottom edge if you're brightness is too high, but other than that, I've found zero defects with the monitor.

      I had a 24 inch Dell monitor that I thought was the best but this Benq 27 inch is so much better for viewing any and all work that I have to perform. I do video calibration and I love the fact that this monitor comes calibrated from the factory and then I can also re-calibrate it using my extensive monitoring equipment. If you purchase this, you will be very happy with the results.

      I searched for a reasonably priced monitor for my photo editing as the cheaper ones were either too dark or too light depending on my viewing angle. I have been doing my own printing with a Canon Pixma Pro 10...amazing match with monitor and print as long as you use the correct printer/software settings...also be sure to use the correct paper profile. Great monitor!

      Raed many reviews before selecting this monitor for photo-editing and general use. Very pleased with OOB experience; ready to use as is, even though user calibration is available with extra purchase. More expensive than others on the market, but I wanted best value/ quality in that price range

      So far so good, and I've been enjoy the clear picture w/o the cover just yet. The only thing I still need to figure out is the SD card as well as USB ports as they don't seem to be "smart" ones that can power the devices even if the computer is standby or off mode. Still, overall, I'm rather satisfired.

      In order to do business with the professional photo labs, i was required to use a color calibrated monitor. This one has lived up to the good reviews. The only downside is that you will need to upgrade you graphics card to get the full resolution available.
