Not ready to move up to 4K yet? BenQ’s new EW3270ZL monitor might interest you in that case. The 32-inch monitor offers 2560 x 1440 WQHD resolution, which, although not as impressive as 3840 x 2160, is still a pretty decent upgrade over the still-popular 1920 x 1080 resolution. The monitors offers a simplistic design with narrow bezels and OSD (On Screen Display) buttons located to the right of the bottom bezel, hidden on the underside.
The monitor uses an AMVA+ panel sourced from AU Optronics, with a 3000:1 static contrast ratio, 10-bit colors (8-bit + FRC dithering), 178/178 degree viewing angles, 100% sRGB color gamut coverage, 60 Hz native refresh rate, and a 4ms (grey-to-grey) response time.
Similar to most BenQ monitors, the EW3270ZL features a flicker-free WLED backlight, which uses DC instead of PWM dimming. To reduce fatigue, the monitor comes with Low Blue Light settings as well. A unique new feature that the monitor includes is ‘Brightness Intelligence Technology’ (B.I. Tech.). This feature basically allows the monitor to adjust the brightness and gamma based on the ambient lighting and the brightness level of the scene being viewed on it.
Connectivity wise, the EW3270ZL comes with 2 HDMI ports, DP, MiniDP, and a 3.5mm headphone jack. A pair of 3W speakers are integrated as well. The monitor does not come with VESA holes however, so you will not be able to use an alternative stand with this one. The integrated stand only offers tilt adjustment, which is also quite disappointing.
