One of the most notable upgrades of BenQ for its monitor model is the ability to display images in wide color gamut mode, meeting the VESA HDR400 standard instead of just the “standard HDR” (HDR Ready) as on previous versions.

To do this, BenQ first applied a high-quality IPS panel with 4K (3840 × 2160) resolution with 95% coverage of the DCI-P3 color range.

Therefore, with only a few minor tweaks, you can absolutely use this monitor model for simple image editing or video editing jobs.

Most impressive is still when experiencing movies on screen with Cinema HDRi mode, content on Netflix supporting this mode becomes more brilliant and sparkling than previous generations of monitors, nearly on par with models High-end TVs on the market today with enhanced color, become more “flattering” than.

Meanwhile, Game HDRi mode has good support for some recently released games like Borderlands 3, but focuses on displaying dark colors, so that players can easily distinguish. details in low-light areas are better.

Although the upgrades are extremely bright, there is a point BenQ EW3280U causing many of its fans to “flinch”, which is the price of the product is too high compared to the version launched last year.

This is also very easy to understand when the company has to choose higher quality panels, “genuine” backlight, and integrated smart technologies.
