BenQ PD2705Q is shaping up to be your best solution for work from home use with its 1440p QHD IPS screen and a desirable, modern connectivity layout. This model sits in between the Zowie and Photovue monitors which are for intense gaming and photo editing respectively. It comes in a sleek, low-profile chassis with a fully adjustable base, along with an almost bezel-free screen.
What makes the BenQ PD2705Q special and suitable for work from home use is its USB-C connector which supports DP Alt Mode while providing charging power. This model is capable of up to 65 Watts of juice, covering a lot of laptop models such as MacBooks that are built for productivity. It can also daisy-chain with a second PD2705Q or other DP-equipped monitors, allowing you to enhance your workflow.
The connectivity layout for the BenQ PD2705Q includes DisplayPort 1.4, DP Out, and an HDMI 2.0 slot which can accommodate several devices along with daisy-chaining a second display. You will also find the aforementioned USB-C slot with DP Alt Mode and PD65, plus a pair of built-in speakers that are usable for conference calls.
BenQ also guarantees that the BenQ PD2705Q will be factory-calibrated with a DeltaE that is less than 3.0 to ensure that colors are balanced and accurate. This device comes with the brand’s AQColor technology which ensures that the product will meet ICC and ISO standards in color accuracy. It was also mentioned that this new model is compatible with HDR10, but it can only respond to the HDR signal and try its best to reproduce the imaging improvements.
The BenQ PD2705Q isn’t special, but it does have a few tricks up its sleeve to help you with day to day tasks. The monitor comes with an ambient light sensor at the bottom bezel which enables the display to adjust its settings accordingly. This add-on is great for eye safety and comfort, which is one of the priorities of BenQ’s product lines.
You also get several tools with the BenQ PD2705Q, starting with its professional filters which include Darkroom Mode, Animation Mode, CAD/CAM Mode, and M-book Mode. The latter enables the monitor to match the colors of your Mac or MacBook’s display. You also get DualView functionality which enables you to see your media in two modes, plus a KVM switch function for use with two workstations.
The BenQ PD2705Q is arriving with a $399 retail price and is now available for pre-order on select retailers and regions. That’s a steal for a QHD monitor of this caliber, and we can’t wait to test it out to see how it performs. You can also visit the official product page for the BenQ PD2705Q if you want to know more.
