In this new section, we will do an unboxing of sorts, showing you, our readers unboxing of some of the interesting products that come through our labs. Consider it an unboxing of sorts,

A couple of months back, we wrote a review of the BenQ SW2700PT monitor. It’s a display that is meant for the most serious of designers, as it features a number of features, such as hardware calibration for colour accuracy, together with Palette Master Element colour calibration software, 99 percent Adobe RGB colour space and a 27 inch display at QHD (1440p) resolution.

It even comes with a shading hood so that the display isn’t affected by ambient light in the office, if colour accuracy is of the utmost importance to the design of the work.

Inside the box are three compartments which houses the display and its various parts and accessories
