If you’ve got some cash to burn and you’re looking for the ultimate photo editing monitor, BenQ’s got a great new gadget for you to consider. It’s called the SW320, and it’s 31.5-inches of 4K, HRD, IPS, Adobe RGB color space goodness.
The SW320 was developed with photographers and other imaging professionals in mind. At the core of this 31.5-inch 3,840 x 2,160 resolution behemoth of a monitor is a true 10-bit IPS panel that supports 100% of the sRGB color space and 99% of Adobe RGB—but the goodies don’t stop there.
There are also a ton of ports, a built-in SD card reader (take that Apple!), and support for HDR 10 content. And as if that’s not enough, the monitor even features three different black and white presets so you can preview your images in B&W before you ever touch a slider in post. Finally, the SW320 also features a little “Hotkey Puck” on the stand that lets you switch color space between sRGB, Adobe RGB, and Black and White, or program your own custom settings right into those buttons.
When we said “ultimate photo editing monitor” we weren’t kidding. Here’s a closer look at this beast:
To find out more about the BenQ SW320, head over to the company’s website by clicking here. The monitor is scheduled to arrive in January of 2017—detachable shading hood included—for the not-so-affordable price of $1,000. Of course, in this case at least, you may just get what you pay for.
