BenQ BL2711U 27-inch 4K monitor review


Meet the BenQ BL2711U 27-inch 4K monitor, a hefty display that's aimed at professionals who need to make the most of every pixel, and it certainly packs in plenty of them with its 4K resolution. With the ultra high definition standard on the rise with...

Let's get one thing out of the way quickly: this is one good looking monitor. The BL2711U sports a high end 4K IPS LED panel that looks absolutely brilliant, with top-notch colours with incredible accuracy, and a truckload of additional functions and...

The BL2711U is a great monitor if you're a professional in need of a hefty amount of pixels on your desk, but for the average user, it's likely not going to be worth the amount of cash it costs. At around £500, that's a lot of money for a 27-inch...

If you're looking for a top-quality display to help with your work, BenQ's BL2711U 27-inch 4K monitor is well worth a look, but it'll take some severe horsepower to game on it at full resolution. At around £500, it's not a bad price for what you get,...

Great, Good or Bad?


I was really disappointed to receive a DOA unit. Saved a long time to make the purchase on my new build. RMA'd back to Newegg for a replacement. Hoping to receive a working unit with a swift turn around. I gave 3 stars for the following reasons - 1...

Can't say as I received the unit DOA out of the box.

Monitor arrived DOA- not a good start.

Great Monitor


I purchased this monitor for eye care and photography. I find the blue light and flicker features notable. Customization buttons are easy and convenient. Colors and resolution are great for photo editing; however, I am not a professional, so I cannot...

The time to switch to 4k is finally here!


There are only about a half-dozen 4k models available, but BenQ's new 4k entrant is sitting proudly in front of me and it. is. the. best. Other monitors have good picture, but BenQ focuses on the balance between picture, price and compatibility. No...

Nice 10bit 4k IPS panel Seems competitively priced compared to other monitors with similar spec. WEarly days but so far I am very pleased.

None that I can think of.

Very good picture and pretty good sound from speakers (compared to other monitors anyway)

So-called "Eye Care" automatic brightness mode is ridiculously bright - 100% on a fairly dull day. I asked Benq tech support if it was possible to adjust its overall brightness, but they said it's not. The Brightness setting vanishes when using it. I'm...
