Maybe not the best use of the space. The monitor does have some heft to it but the base and stand are HEAVY and represent the bulk of the package weight.

The hood can be used in both landscape and portrait orientation so it is comprised of multiple pieces.

That's some really inefficient packaging.

The SW2700 comes with pretty much the same pieces, the puck is in smaller box, and the hood is in a box a fraction that size, all the pieces are stacked together in plastic bags.


The hood is awesome by the way, works really well and is a much better design the one you get with high end Eizos.

You might consider one of the Nvidia RTX cards. For some reason they're not as pricey even though they contain a newer architecture. The performance of the RTX 2060 is close to that of the GTX 1080 at a much better price point from a gaming perspective. For photo editing, it more than meets the need. That's the card I opted for. Using the display port to connect gives you the full 10-bit capability of the BenQ monitor. Nice monitor by the way!

I ordered the Gigabyte Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 8Gig card. (and the Gigabyte Aorus Master Z390 motherboard and an Intel i9-9900K chip).

How is Lightroom running? Any noticeable delay for rendering time when you move through the Library?

The computer isn't built yet, but I can't imagine that there would be an issue with rendering time. It's not too bad on the dinosaur of a system that I'm using now. I'm looking at monitors now and am leaning toward the BenQ SW2700PT. That's what brought me initially to this thread.

FWIW, I installed a new graphics card in my current system yesterday, a Gigabyte GT 1030. It's an inexpensive card with 2 GB DDR5 memory. The fan on the old card was going out, and the temperatures were starting to go off the charts. It hit 115 degrees C at one point! Rendering in LR isn't too bad with it. There's a very slight lag. The RTX 2080 is more than capable. If there's any lag with that card, it's the software, not the card

Hello Chuck

Did you have the time to try out the new monitor?

I am asking because I am using the SW271 since today and my first impressions are positive. I was a little concerned because some reviews articulating issues about image uniformity but I do not see any reasons to complain so far. Also, I was fearing that 4K/UHD would bring trouble (like 30 Hz only) but the Gigabyte Z390 I Pro Wifi motherboard happily delivers 4K/UHD at 60 Hz to the monitor.

Thanks

Hello Hugo.

I attached the monitor a few days ago and began running at 4k (3840x2160). My oldish graphics card (Nvidia GTX 960 2 or 4 gig) can display 4k. Apps ran well but I quickly noticed that jpg files in the Windows viewer suddenly taking several moments to render clear. Everything I read recommended using an 8GB graphics card so I assumed that was the core issue and I decided to upgrade that component. I assembled this computer 4 or 5 years ago and it was time to do another update so I thought what the heck, I'll also update the CPU, mainboard, RAM, and the boot drive. I wanted to install the new components one at a time and look for what item made the best singular improvement so I first dropped in the RTX 2080 8GB graphics card. To my surprise it did little for the Windows viewer jpg render isssue, but I think Lightroom was quicker. Just today I finished the major overhaul, overclocked the CPU to 5ghz, overclocked the RAM to 3866 for now, and cloned my C-drive to the M.2 PCIe drive. The computer as a whole is extremely snappy but to my even greater surprise the jpg viewer issue still exists. Again that began when I started running Windows at 4k. LR will now import and export at a much much faster pace. 4K display looks amazing and I now notice to a greater degree when a posted photo on POTN isn't as sharp as I thought it was. I have thousands of $$$$ invested in this upgrade and I'm certain I'll be very happy for another 4-5 years. The Windows viewer jpg render issue has me stumped. For now, I refuse to set the display back down to a lower resolution as a test. LOL (actually, that didn't help)

My next and final task is to perform a color calibration using the x-rite Display Pro i1 in a few days.

Your Windows viewer issue is curious - I have just tried full resolution TIFF images and scaled down JPEG images and there was no lag/delay in the display. Maybe your JPEG files are larger than mine. There are other viewers, maybe skip troubleshooting the Windows viewer and go for another viewer?

(Also, your setup appears way more powerful than mine, I am just using the Z390 I Pro Wifi with the onboard graphics and i7-8700 without overclocking. So really not sure where that delay is coming from for you...)
