BenQ’s PG series monitors are tested against standard printing color charts and real printing house results to determine which aspects of colorations prove to be the most challenging for graphic professionals. As defined by these test results, the BenQ PG series specializes in color reproduction for tones with a Delta-E value lower than two.
“SW2007PT is by far the best display that I’ve used. The overall build quality and the design of the display is just amazing. Color accuracy is second to none with easy to use calibration software. The price point is fantastically awesome. In my opinion, this is by far the best value monitor that every photographers should own.”

BenQ PG series monitors are Printing-Industry Color Certified (G7/Fogra) according to international ISO standards that improve design and proofing efficiency and lower total cost of ownership. On-screen images have never been so true to the final printed image. Finally, a monitor series that is print-perfect.
Each BenQ PG series display is subjected to a verification process on-site upon production in order to test the performance of the monitor in terms of Brightness uniformity, Delta-E and Gamma curve. These results are validated against BenQ and industry color standards—the results of the test are noted on a calibration report, included with each individual PG series monitor.
Enjoy the smoothest shading and color transitions in natural gradations on a 10-bit display panel. A 10-bit panel can create more than one billion colors – 64 times the amount of color available on an 8-bit panel – to guarantee silky smooth gradation. The PG series also includes 14-bit processing capability, generating crisper definition and improved gray-level distinction, allowing you see true-to-print natural shades before they get printed.
BenQ PG series monitors feature Delta E≤2 in both Adobe RGB and sRGB color spaces to ensure colors are displayed accurately in every stage of web design, photo retouch and pre-press workflow. Delta E≤2 not only offers viewers the truest appearance of the original image, it also saves time and money by creating reliable colors and providing promising results when matching images the first time, every time.
Utilizing the X-Rite calibration device (i1 pro, i1 pro 2 or i1 Display Pro), you can use the hardware calibration function to adjust the 3D LUT in the monitor directly, providing smoother and more consistent color tones. Keep the image consistent with the original, without being affected by graphic settings. Subsequently, these calibrated settings are stored directly in the monitor under two of the preset modes.
Brightness Uniformity is achieved via a delicate process involving utilizing a high precision apparatus to meticulously fine-tune hundreds of sub-regions of the entire screen. This feature enables PG series monitors to maintain a consistent color appearance across the entire display area. By precisely controlling the brightness and chromaticity of each sub-region, a more authentic and consistent viewing experience is guaranteed.
The PG series is supported by a uniquely designed stand, featuring a sleek look, blue detailing and a wide range of adjustability. The stand itself can be maneuvered to tilt, pivot or swivel in order to suit any ergonomic desktop configuration, regardless of the desk arrangement or the user’s height. The on-screen display can even rotate automatically for landscape or portrait use.
Factory calibrated preset viewing modes ensure users have a suitable variety of viewing conditions upon first using the monitor. The PG series offers Standard, Adobe RGB, sRGB and illumine, along with A, D50 and D65 for standard graphical work. For more involved work, the Calibration Mode enables users to save calibration settings and switch between different sets of calibration settings. Additionally the heavily customizable Custom Mode can be used for delicate color tuning.
A variety of inputs provides users with flexibility in connecting various input devices. PC users can connect the PG series monitor to a PC via DVI-D, HDMI or DisplayPort while MAC users can connect via the Mini DisplayPort input. Two USB 3.0 ports and card reader are also available for rapid file transfers and storage solutions.
