A Graphic Designer’s review BenQ PD3200U Monitor

First let me thank BenQ for allowing me the opprotunity to test out and and review the PD3200U DesignVue Designer Monitor with 4K UHD resolution.

Before I jump into the review… let me welcome you into my creative space. This is where the magic happens: Graphic Design, Illustration, Photo Editing, Content Creation, Marketing and PR! This is my inner sanctum where I not only work hard, but also have fun.

If you know me then you know that I am tech lover. Because of my line of work it is important for me to be surrounded by the best the tech world has to offer! I need precision, spot on colors and a work space that inspires me!

Find the BenQ PD3200U Monitor on Amazon.

Set Up…

The set up was quite easy! The great thing about the monitor is everything pretty much snaps into place and with the twist of one screw you are done. This is a great benefit if you order several professional monitors for an office or advertising agency. Being able to set up a monitor quickly is a plus in my book.

I had a smaller BenQ monitor already set up in my home studio, so I simply removed it and with a little rearranging of my desk the BenQ PD3200U was in place and ready for action!

The great thing about the monitor is that it has an extensive range of height, tilt, pivot, stroke, and swivel! It pretty much can fit anywhere. Because of my set up it is important to have these options. As sometimes I have three devices running… my Wacom Cintiq Companion 2, Wacom Mobile Studio Pro and MacBook. So I being able to adjust the BenQ monitor comes in handy for my set up.

DualView Mode / MultiWindow Desktop Partition

This is something that multitaskers like myself will love. DualView Mode is great if you love working on two monitors. It will split your monitor and turn your monitor into two monitors! This is great if you like to have more than one app running.

Proprietary BenQ Display Pilot software splits your desktop into multiple window partitions for easy multitasking. This is simply wonderful for creatives like myself. Let’s say I am working on a design and need a reference image open and possibly the internet running for additional research… then I can easily set up my monitor to handle it all! Display Pilot does require you to use Windows 10, but that is quite ok for me.

Eye Care…

Taking care of your eyes is important for all creatives, especially as you get older. Well, BenQ has you covered. BenQ has implemented technology to reduce eye fatigue. This is great when are in the zone and designing for hours.

Their Low Blue Light Technology filters out harmful blue light. This diminishes eye fatigue and irritation. Trust me if you are like me and get into design mode then working for hours on end without eye fatigue is a blessing!

Also, the monitor is flicker free. Some monitors still flicker even though it is not noticeable to users. If a monitor flickers it will eventually harm your eyes. Eliminating a flicker of any kind is great as it also reduces eye fatigue.

Highly Adjustable…

Every creative sets up his or her work space differently. So this is something I would like to point out. As one can really customize the set up of their monitor and adjust it to his or her needs.

The base is incredibly sturdy, thus there is no fear as it does not wobble.

Other Notes…

BenQ seems to have thought of everything with the PD3200U. The monitor has an anti-glare matte finish. This is great since the desk in my home studio sits close to the window.

If you are a digital artist, a photographer, a gamer, YouTuber or streamer… this monitor will rock your world. I had an older BenQ monitor which I loved and I have to say I fell even deeper in love with this monitor. It covers everything that I want in monitor and more.

The speakers are phenomenal. Theoretically one does not need to go out and buy speakers as these are really great. This is good for those editing video or people streaming their game play.

Wrap…

The BenQ PD3200U monitor is perfect for creatives who require precision colors and want a high quality monitor. BenQ has put a lot of thought into the design and performance of the monitor. Not only is it beautiful and stylish, it will serve your needs well.

The display is super sharp and having AQCOLOR Technology makes it top of the line when comparing it to other monitors made by other brands. BenQ also cares about their community’s eyes. As I mentioned early creatives and even gamers once in the zone will work for hours (or play if you are gamer), so having a monitor that is built for eye is necessary and will help your eyes remain healthy.

This monitor is very impressive and I highly recommend it.
