Ben Q 27inch BL2710 

Not just a large screen panel but a very high resolution one. In fact the only way you will get to use it at the highest resolution is if you connect it via Display Port, but I am told that the next version of HDMI should support it.

The BenQ 27inch BL2710 measures 63x38x3cm. The stand is 37x26cm but only the back middle is as much as 26cm where the circular hydraulic arm is, the rest is only 19cm deep. In its lowest position the arm raises the screen by only 1cm from the desk but it can raise it by as much as 14cm. All these figures are in Landscape mode but it can be used in Portrait mode by a simple 90degree turn and when used via Display Port it changes the orientation of the screen automatically.

The viewable screen is 60x34cm which gives the notional diagonal imperial display of 26.8inches.

The screen surround is matt and mid grey in colour so it does not show fingermarks, the screen is also not that reflective and while a panel is not so likely to be touched as the screen on a notebook it still hel

It is 63x38x3cm. The stand is 37x26cm but only the back middle is as much as 26cm where the circular hydraulic arm is, the rest is only 19cm deep. In its lowest position the arm raises the screen by only 1cm from the desk but it can raise it by as much as 14cm. All these figures are in Landscape mode but it can be used in Portrait mode by a simple 90degree turn and when used via Display Port it changes the orientation of the screen automatically.

The viewable screen is 60x34cm which gives the notional diagonal imperial display of 26.8inches.

The screen surround is matt and mid grey in colour so it does not show fingermarks, the screen is also not that reflective and while a panel is not so likely to be touched as the screen on a notebook it still helps that the display is clean especially at higher resolutions.

Towards the right of the base of the surround are five touch buttons and right towards the edge an on/off button. When any button is touched the display options are shown.     

The connections on the rear are HDMI, Digital, VGA and Display Port. The maximum resolution currently available with the first three is 1920x1080, however if you have Display Port you get 2560x1440 automatically.

Without the aid of Display Port which is still only a small number compared to the other three connection methods this becomes just a very large 1920x1080 panel with rotation to 1080x1920 by selecting portrait in screen resolution.

There are eight different screen contrast/brightness modes pre-set to suit every possible use. This is a panel made for Designers so the CAD-CAM mode is very crisp and sharp someone working in fine detail will require.

Auto Pivot software is also available with the unit. For those who need two standard screens this can also work as the resolution shows far more than a standard panel. All recent Ben Q monitors have built in eye care software vital as we only get one pair of eyes. The technology is also flicker free.

There are also two USB3 ports built into the line of controls on the rear of the unit as well as the required upstream port.

Low Blue Light mode is another feature to appreciate for anyone working long hours in front of their panel, for those really high flyers the web site shows – second link - three such panels arranged together.

This unit has a full 20degrees of back movement and 5degrees of front movement so wherever you place the screen you should still get a good crisp image even when watching a DVD or three. The second link has far more information and even videos.

The price may seem high but it is quality and if you have Display Port the higher resolution available makes it acceptable.

The Ben Q bl2710pt is available from the first link below for £360.77 with free delivery.
