At about the same pixel density as a 24" 1920x1200 display, but much larger and higher res, the BL3200PT looks like it should be an obvious winner, right? Watch on to see our full review!

Such screen size and resolution is the best option for a 1440p monitor where UI elements are still readable.

DAMN why wasnt this out like 2 months ago :/ then I could have had a 32" instead of 27" for the same price :/

 

That said at 27" I have a sharper image

Blame me if im wrong, but Linus, I think BenQ is not stupid enough to forget to put headphone port to the left.
I think this happened in their development stage:
If we put the port on the left, wat about people using pivot? The port will go up and that's jist ridiculous. Oh well, lets put it on the right since we can't just ignore pivot users.

It that's the case won't putting it below still be better overall?

Check what refresh rate you're running at. Is it 60Hz?

This looks like an absolutely beautiful monitor. At $500-$550 I'd almost be tempted to ditch my current 1440p monitor but at the price point BenQ wants I would get ASUS upcoming 4k monitor (even with Windows' scaling issues) or spend a little more and gett that crazy 1440p 120hz g-sync monittor ASUS is putting out. The reduction in panel quality and screen size would be made up for in terms to gaming performance. Trying to deal with ghosting in games would drive me nuts every time I saw it.

Then OC it to 90Hz :3


Best budget gaming headphones -> Superlux HD681 Evo 
(comfort -> extra velvet pads, light headphone, great sound, detachable cord - even accidently no break, semi open )

I dont think so. Because if you put it below, it would have to be at the right bottom side, which will be inconvenient just as much as putting the port at right, or else, again, if you put it on vertical, port on the left bottom would end up the port placed waaaay up, like 20inch up

IMHO for productivity the Seiki 50" 4k monitor with the custom board that will allow for 60hz at 4k and 120hz at 1080p will be a much better and less expensive choice, even for gamers, since the board will remove input lag.

No that panel is shit a good 1080p panel looks better.

 

Op that monitor is too big for 1440p imo and its a VA panel i dont really understand why anyone would buy this especially for $800
