Large 4K monitors are steadily becoming the norm for most of the current releases flooding the shelves. BenQ, one of the competitive brands today is releasing products to cover all levels of budget and purposes. Aside from the gaming/E-Sports displays they are famous for, the company is also venturing into the realm of professional monitors. Their BL (Business Line) of products provides designers and artists with quality products at an affordable price bracket compared to Dell or Asus. The BenQ BL2711U, a model, designed to cater to the professional field, offers a stunning 4k resolution at a respectable 60hz packed into a 27″ frame.
Design-wise, there is nothing much to say about the Benq BL2711U. Since the BL series was meant for tamer environments such as your office or design studio, BenQ’s engineers decided to go without adding bling to the looks of the product. Instead, they opted to go with a minimalist but sleek look to better suit the professional atmosphere. The Cabinet has the distinct matte black exterior of the company’s entire range, including their gaming products. The fingerprint-free, subtle, and grippy texture as always is a welcome application to the exterior since the display’s usage might entail a lot of adjustments.
The BenQ BL2711U’s 4k 27″ IPS panel provides eye-popping clarity and stunning detail just like any other 4k display would. What makes this monitor special is its 10-bit color interface which provides 1.07 billion accurate colors for the designer’s eyes. This tech allows the product to cover 100% of the sRGB and REC 709 color spaces. Color representation is vibrant and accurate, coupled with the native resolution details are crisp and clear.
The panel manufacturer AUO, a daughter company of BenQ, has been producing 27-inch and 32-inch panels with 4K (UHD) resolution of 3840 x 2160. The first monitor that used this panel was the ASUS PB279Q, who used the 27-inch variant. BenQ followed right after and released the BL3201PT and , which uses the 32-inch variant. The difference between the monitors is that the Bl3201PT & BL3201PH uses an AHVA panel, whereas the BL3201PH uses an IPS panel. The BenQBL2711U is the company’s take on the 27-inch UHD variant. Seeing the monitor from the monitor, it looks as you would expect for a “BL” series monitor – minimalistic, professional and clean lines. The controls at the lower right of the monitor’s bezel are touch sensitive and in the center of the bottom bezel you find the “Eye Protect Sensor”, which is an ambient light sensor that automatically adjusts the backlight brightness accordingly. Furthermore, there’s an Eco Sensor here, which is a proximity sensor that allows the monitor to reduce its brightness significantly if nobody is using it.
