We tested the reference grade, 24-inch BenQ a couple of issues ago and so we were keen to see how this more budget oriented 27-inch offering performed. BenQ are a Taiwanese company who have traded since 2001 but their monitors are starting to gain a considerable reputation.

The SW2700PT is a 27-inch, 2560x1440 resolution with a claimed gamut coverage of 99% of Adobe RGB. At a price point of £499 inc VAT it is not a budget monitor and it certainly did not turn out a budget performance, indeed , as you will see, it was rather spectacular! The key features are listed.
