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.
Unboxing the monitor is a simple affair. if you find it difficult to get the polystyrene case out of the box, it is recommended that you carefully put the box upside down, and slowly pull the box up while ensuring the polystyrene doesn’t tip over.
Inside the polystyrene case are all the things you need to set up the monitor, including, display, stand and the neck, alongside the power cable and video-in cables, in this case being a DVI cable.
As far as I/O ports go, the SW2700PT sports DVI, HDMI, DisplayPort and a couple of USB ports.
Setting up the monitor is a fairly straight forward affair, and after you’re done, you can even have the display set vertically.
The OSD can be a bit difficult to access as the buttons at the bottom, but BenQ has also included a physical remote that easily allows you to access these options.
The remote can also be docked at the base of the monitor for easy-to-remember access.
The hood is an add-on that is included with the SW2700PT in case the designer requires his or her work to be absolutely accurate without the disturbance of any ambient light.
