Consensus

our Verdict

The BenQ PD2720U is a great choice for creative professionals, with its professional color accuracy and sleek design. It’s not the best for gamers, though, as its speakers are weak and the refresh rate is limited to 60Hz. But if you’re a designer, photo or video editor, it’s a great long-term purchase, with its adjustable stand and solid build. Just make sure you need the professional-grade color accuracy before you commit to the price.
