BenQ PD2725U DesignVue Designer 27″ 16:9 HDR 4K IPS Monitor
The PD2725U DesignVue Designer 27″ 16:9 HDR 4K IPS Monitor from BenQ has been built to satisfy designers’ needs for color performance, with support for 100% of the sRGB and Rec. 709 color gamuts, 95% of the DCI-P3 color gamut, and HDR10. Driven by BenQ’s AQCOLOR technology and an Ultra HD 4K resolution of 3840 x 2160 with a 60 Hz refresh rate, the PD2725U helps deliver improved accuracy and productivity tailored for specific tastes. It does this using three special modes – CAD/CAM, Animation, and Darkroom – each of which is tailored for different scenarios, allowing users in different fields to achieve similar results.
The PD2725U features In-Plane Switching (IPS) technology, an anti-glare panel coating, 10-bit support for 1.07 billion colors, a widescreen 16:9 aspect ratio, a static contrast ratio of 1200:1, a typical brightness 250 cd/m2 and a peak HDR brightness of 400 cd/m2, 163 ppi, and a 5 ms (GtG) response time. Using the 178° horizontal and vertical viewing angles, it is possible to watch content from virtually any position. There are also two HDMI 2.0 inputs, one DisplayPort 1.4 input, and two Thunderbolt 3 ports that each support DP alt mode for daisy-chaining multiple displays and data transfers. One Thunderbolt 3 port supports devices charging up to 65W, while the other supports it up to 15W. Additional connectivity is achieved using two USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-A ports (downstream) and one USB 3.1 Gen 2 Type-B port (upstream). Audio can be output using the dual integrated 2.5W speakers or the 3.5mm headphone jack.
BenQ’s PD2725U also supports HDCP 2.2, Flicker-Free technology, Low Blue Light technology, Picture in Picture (PiP), Picture by Picture (PbP), and more. To further help improve viewing and accessibility, it features a vertical tilt of -5 to 20°, a left/right swivel of ±30°, a clockwise/counterclockwise pivot of 90°, a height adjustment of 5.91″, and a 100 x 100mm VESA mount. It is certified for Mac, Windows 10, 8.1, 8, and 7, SolidWorks, and Calman.
Please note that the USB ports will only operate with data transmission speeds of 10 Gb/s USB 3.1 Gen 2 when using the Thunderbolt 3 video input. If DisplayPort or HDMI is used, the data transmission speeds will operate at 5 Gb/s USB 3.1 Gen 1.

Simplified Color Synchronization
You need color that closely matches your Mac. Achieve this with M-Book mode, engaged through the Hotkey Puck G2 or Display Pilot software. Additionally, ICCsync synchronizes color profiles between your monitor and your Mac when activated from the software.
Available for Mac or Windows, Display Pilot software saves time and boosts efficiency. This proprietary software lets you preset multiple monitor settings with a mouse. And it offers support tools to make design work more convenient and flexible.
Please note that the Apple M1 platform is not currently supported.
VESA DisplayHDR 400
The PD2725U is HDR10 compatible with VESA HDR400 certification. Get better results more efficiently when you preview the HDR effect on video while editing.
BenQ AQCOLOR technology delivers “Accurate Reproduction.” This translates to the display of color precisely as it is intended to appear. Led by a color expert, the BenQ team took part in the ICC and ISO to establish color-related standards and implementation guidelines.
Flawless Color Reproduction
The PD2725U covers 95% of the DCI-P3 gamut, 100% of the sRGB gamut, and 100% of the Rec.709 gamut. As more apps, devices, and websites adopt DCI-P3, you can easily load and display images imported from different sources. A Delta E ≤ 3 ensures superb accuracy and absolute color confidence.
Experience consistent colors throughout your workflow, even on multiple monitors. BenQ ensures monitors from different production lines display color at the same levels.
