Benq ew3270u

Today we had the honor to test BenQ’s stunning 32-inch 4K Ultra HD monitor. We have been waiting for some time due to the implementation of what BenQ calls true HDR and brightness smart plus technology. EW3270U is equipped with a lot of cool features, such as 3000:1 contrast ratio, 300 nits brightness, 4ms GTG response time and HDR 10 support, to name a few.

BenQ is no stranger to producing outstanding gaming and entertainment displays, and their new EW3270U is a good example of their capabilities. In the following article, we will break down what we consider to be the main functions of any display product to see if this 32-inch display meets the high expectations of WEPC. We will also see how it compares to some of the other market-leading monitors on the market today, and whether the price it marked is really worth the price. Let us stop wasting time to learn more about the features provided by this monitor.

One of the questions we are asked in all product reviews and best guides is how we test the product, which is a good question. As a reader and consumer, how do you know that the information they provide to you is accurate?

Well, the EW3270U dropped a few weeks ago and it has been my main monitor ever since. The version I used to test this monitor has an i58600 and an EVGA 1080Ti version in black, which means we can push it to the absolute limit it can reach.

We typically run a lot of tests on a variety of games to understand their performance, but because the nature of this monitor is best suited for entertainment viewing, we decided to keep this part brief.

In terms of entertainment, we ran several different HDR-rated visuals across the screen and compared them to some market leaders to see how it performed. Hope readers can refer to how good this is.

When purchasing a new monitor or monitor, the first thing to pay attention to is the hardware specifications. In this section, you will find all the information about the product and whether it is suitable for your specific user requirements.

For example, gamers generally require low response time and high refresh rate, while movie lovers are more concerned with contrast and HDR support. Either way, finding the right monitor for you starts with product specifications.

The following are the EW3270U specifications:

As mentioned above, the size of the monitor is 32 inches. For any tech novice, this is a diagonal line. The physical size is 72.5 cm (28.5 inches) x 42.8 cm (17 inches), which is quite large in terms of work and gaming monitors. However, from an entertainment point of view, it creates a dream-like environment for movie-style viewing, which cannot be achieved with a small screen. The

weighs 21.6 pounds, which is quite high for a display, but in the real world, weight will soon not be a problem. As long as you have a sturdy table and enough supports, you are absolutely fine.

The recommended viewing distance of this monitor is about 1.8 meters. If you watch movies and TV, it is definitely recommended, but I have been using this monitor for about a month, and it feels closer than that. So far, I have not encountered any problems, we may thank BenQ for the impressive eye care support, which will be resolved soon. The

EW3270U has a resolution of 3840 x 2160 (4K), a refresh rate of 60Hz and a response time of 4ms, which is very reliable for monitors that are not suitable for gaming.

For those who are not familiar with these two aspects, a brief description of each is provided below. The

resolution is the number of pixels on the display. The maximum resolution of a monitor refers to the number of pixels in the vertical and horizontal directions. Therefore, a display with a maximum resolution of 2560 × 1440 (1440p) is 2,560 pixels wide and 1,440 pixels high.

Response time measures the speed of color changes on the display; more specifically, how fast LEDs react to color changes. This is in milliseconds (ms). If the change occurs too slowly, it may cause ghosting in the image and ultimately reduce the quality. As a general rule of thumb, you want the target for any new monitor to be less than 4 milliseconds, but gamers will demand a lower level. Remember, this will increase the selling price of the product.

In terms of its refresh rate, it represents the speed at which your monitor physically updates the image to be displayed. For example, a 144Hz display will update the image 144 times in one second. The larger the number, the smoother the overall image.

Once again, gamers are looking for the highest possible refresh rate in order to create the smoothest possible gaming experience. For this reason alone, EW3270U is not the best gaming monitor.

Contrast is one of the most important features to pay attention to when buying a new monitor, especially those that support HDR. Contrast basically means the difference between the brightest light and the darkest darkness, and the ratio is purely a number for the two fields. The first contrast element

is the maximum brightness, which refers to the brightest brightness. It is measured in "nits" and can be considered as the light emitted by a single candle. The second is the black level, which refers to

Level of realism. The

EW3270U has a contrast ratio of 3000:1, which is pretty good considering the price. Any games and entertainment that exceed 2000:1 are great, which means that this monitor scores high here. The

input is very simple and refers to the compatibility of your monitor with other devices. If you are an old-school gamer, you will remember the VGA and DVI ports that are almost dying out in the market today.

Currently, the most popular input ports are HDMI v2.0, display port, and USB TypeC. With this monitor, you can get HDMI v2.0, 2 display ports 1.4 and 1 USB TypeC connector.

As for the headphone connection, you can access it directly through the monitor via the mini jack.

BenQ didn't think of that when developing the features for this monitor, they've outfitted it with all the conveniences you can imagine in a high-end monitor, and they won't let you down.

All the functions on this screen feel that there is a place and a purpose, which is really refreshing, pay attention to puns. Sometimes, generally in cheaper monitors, you will find that the functions provided by the manufacturer do not have real functions, but only a marketing strategy. However, this is not the case with EW3270U.

Let's jump straight to the best features and benefits:

The feature part of this article is HighDynamicRange. HDR is one of the best new features on modern displays and helps improve the realism of video output by getting a better color gamut and wider contrast.

"In short, HDR has a single purpose, which is to create a more realistic image by balancing the contrast between light and dark (dynamic range) while maintaining a wide color gamut. By doing so, you can allow users to perceive colors more vividly, thus obtaining more realistic and realistic images.

You may be very familiar with HDR by now, because it is quite common in the television field, but it will take longer to fully integrate into the PC field. This can be attributed to the increase in the price of monitors brought by the addition of HDR and other features. Fortunately, we are starting to see more affordable HDR monitors on the shelves, which is great for gamers and PC enthusiasts.

game developers now seem to be integrating HDR support into all of the latest games, which will promote HDR support. The display finally cuts costs.

HDR is also well suited to supporting video content, creating an immersive and realistic experience that was previously impossible.

FreeSync is an AMD technology that allows your GPU to synchronize with the monitor's refresh rate.

To prevent screen breakage, Freesync allows you to sync the game refresh rate with the FPS so your GPU doesn't flood the screen with too many frames. This creates a super smooth playback experience, because your monitor will only update when a new frame is available;

super resolution is a very cool little feature, but I can't foresee it becoming a deal breaker any time soon. In short, it is a method of improving low-quality images by increasing the pixel density. In turn, this provides higher definition images and more vivid colors for better viewing enjoyment.

I can't say I've been using this feature on stage, but it may happen one day. This is the only feature on the screen that is currently considered a bit nonsensical.

Brightness Intelligence + (B.I. +) is a feature that BenQ has been adding to the display. It is a technology that automatically reduces the brightness of the screen according to the surrounding light. The ambient light sensor on the front of the

monitor detects the light level and color temperature in your current environment. According to the content detected by the sensor, the screen will automatically adjust the screen brightness to best suit your needs. The way the

settings are made will not affect the viewer’s experience, and will vary according to the length of time the monitor is used. It is just another part of the vision care package provided by BenQ.

This is a function that can be turned on or off. You can choose to adjust the sensor in the settings.

One of the best and most relevant features that this monitor must provide is BenQ's eye care technology. They have implemented some attempts to reduce the damage caused by long-term use. The three main pillars that make up eye care technology are B.I.+, which reduces blue light and eliminates screen flicker. Chapter

+ has already been mentioned above, so we will go directly to its function of reducing blue light. As we all know, strong blue light will be harmful to human eyes for a long time, and the display will produce a lot of blue light.

Blu-ray technology can actually remove blue light and harmful radiation from the image while maintaining the highest level of quality and vitality. It also reduces eye irritation and fatigue, which means you can see longer with reduced radiation.

Screen flicker may be more harmful to eyes than blue light, which is why BenQ incorporates flicker-free technology into all of its latest products. The worst thing about screen flicker is that the human eye cannot see it, which means that we voluntarily hurt our eyes without knowing it.

BenQ knows this and completely eliminates screen flicker, once again helping to reduce eye fatigue. When they are really committed to work.

Monitor as far as possible until I calibrate it to my specific needs.

I spent the first half an hour in Excel. I found my eyes were tight because of the brightness. It was at this stage that I decided to activate B.I. + To my surprise, it worked like a charm. Automatic screen adjustment dims the brightness to perfection, making life happy again.

When I was finally able to configure this monitor, I found it was really easy and easy to use to select the desired configuration. It is very convenient to set up HDR and B.I. + and provides instant visual changes that I think are very useful. The 5 buttons underneath the

front panel seem a bit overlooked because they have no labels or tags, meaning you just have to aimlessly press them until you find what you are looking for. However, once you get used to the on-screen menu, it will be very useful and very easy to use.

Let's talk about the physical elements first. I am very disappointed in the accuracy of the screen adjustments you have made with this monitor. The stand can only be tilted back and forth, with zero height adjustment at the same time. Considering that the screen is too large, this may not be a big problem, but I would rather have facilities than not. BenQ

is equipped with mounting holes for the back of this monitor, so consumers can use a better stand or wall mount installation, which feels good to the touch. It certainly won't look inappropriate on the wall.

HDR, for me, is impressive, it makes games and movies more realistic and vibrant. However, the contrast ratio of 3000: 1 does not fully comply with HDR regulations, so BenQ had to use a dynamic contrast ratio of 20M: 1. However, my viewing experience improved when I used the HDR function as well. that I gave the go-ahead.

Unfortunately, this monitor only has a 60Hz refresh rate, so it is really not suitable for playing games, especially if it is a high-end model. The platform I currently use can run at over 120FPS in games such as PUBG, which means that my monitor is full of twice the number of frames processed in one second. The

resolution is an obvious advantage for me, and 4k UHD looks great, especially when watching movies that can support both HDR and 4K. Enabling 4K and HDR at the same time really helps to immerse users in whatever content they are watching, which I really appreciate.

In the end, what we have here is an excellent entertainment screen that will make movie nights and media consumption an all-round wonderful experience.

If you are looking for a large gaming monitor with some cool features such as HDR and BI+, then you might say that this is not a monitor. This is entirely based on your answer. Update time and frequency. In addition to

games, this monitor works perfectly and is a great addition to anyone's entertainment settings, but gamers need a minimum refresh rate of 144Hz and a response time of 1 millisecond to fully play their games Experience. So for me it is not a game screen.

Speaking of entertainment, I would definitely recommend this monitor. Due to the color gamut and wide contrast, it is a large display with excellent images and image output. Therefore, for this purpose, at the current price of just over US$400, we consider it a good value for money and we highly recommend it.
