First, resolution. If your eyes are pretty good (maybe you use reading glasses for fine print only), the fact that some things are kind of small on a 25 inch QHD screen and don't scale (see below for a brief discussion of the scaling issue) is okay. If you are concerned about some screen items being too small, get the 27 inch screen: the pixels will be farther apart, so images will be a little bigger and almost as sharp.
The chart below provides the percent of pixels per square inch relative to the PD2500Q (100 percent) for some common display options. Pixels per square inch is probably the best single indicator of how sharp a display will look to your eye.
27 inch 1080p: 48 (fuzzy monitor; fine TV)
25 inch 1080p: 56
24 inch 1080p: 61
21.5 inch 1080p: 76 (looks pretty good on my second monitor)
32 inch 1440p: 61
27 inch 1440p: 86 (many call this resolution/screen size combination the "sweet spot")
25 inch 1440p: 100 (sharp, small display items; I like it)
24 inch 1440p: 108
32 inch 4K: 137
27 inch 4K: 193 (perhaps too much of a good thing)
As best I can tell hunting around on the web, 4K resolution is something like a car that goes 210 mph — often useless and maybe even bad. I'm far from an expert on the whole scaling issue, but the bottom line is not everything in your interface will scale perfectlly, so even if your computer can handle 4K resolution, you might have some troubles with the size of some text items, buttons, icons, and so forth, problems that cannot necessarily be magnified away easily or effectively. The internet seemed pretty unified on the "most users should not (yet) jump to 4K" advice but, as always, YMMV. No doubt 4K is amazing as long as it matches the person and the system.
Only one hiccup in the setup. The monitor is set by default for displayport (dp) 1.2. When I first connected the monitor using the displayport cable, I got nothing. I then connected the monitor using the HDMI cable and got a 1080p display since this is all HDMI on a 2012 mac mini supports. Then I used the buttons at the bottom right of the monitor to find the menu>system>displayport>1.1 setting. Then I connected the monitor using the displayport cable and got the much nicer QHD image.
Summary: Use dp 1.1 for older computers; 4K is probably overkill; 25 or 27 inch diagonal at 1440p is great.
Please say so if this was useful to you. Good luck.
EDIT: After a few months with this unit it is exhibiting the flicker-to-black issue that many are writing about in the critical reviews. I had the monitor replaced by BenQ but the issue is still there! I've tried on two different computers and the issue is consistent. I will be speaking with BenQ support for another RMA replacement, but this is getting ridiculous.
2nd Update: Unbelievable. The flicker problem is endemic across all units relating to faulty design of the panel. BenQ is knowingly selling faulty units and replacing them with equally faulty ones. Absolutely ridiculous. I will be returning this monitor and buying a different brand.
Tried the ASUS 32" 2K but had blurry text and weird color issues. Tried a 4k, 28" monitor but the DPI is too high and since my second monitor is a 24" FHD display I can't easily use scaling to fix the issue. Honestly, I think 4k is a waste on anything less than 40".
I'm a programmer who uses Linux exclusively. This monitor serves my purposes well. Definitely happy with the purchase, and happy that I can stop searching for a new main monitor.
Searching the Web, I found this is a known issue which apparently needs an RMA to BenQ. I can't recommend this monitor until the issue is resolved!
Furthermore, I'm still having USB issues only with this monitor. BenQ suggested I'm having problems with my motherboard or power supply, but, once again, the BenQ is the only problem. BenQ did not reply when I asked if the USB 3.0 hub within the monitor is powered. If it is not, that is a problem!
Fantastic for photo editing. I was hesitant to go with such a large screen and such high resolution, but the combination is great.
I had been using a Dell U2713HM as my primary monitor for several years, but with a recent system build using an Asus GeForce GTX 1070 Ti, I wanted something better that didn't break the bank. I did not go with a much more expensive wide-gamut model because 100% sRGB is sufficient for my inkjet printer, and, of course, is all that any website can currently display.
My concerns about the 4k resolution had to do with reading text and working with programs such as Photoshop and Lightroom, plus a bunch of plug-ins. I also use Word and Excel. They all scale fine for me in Windows 10. For Lightroom, I do all the work on the BenQ, but for Photoshop, I put only the image window on it, keeping the tools and various boxes and tabs on the older Dell 27". For accuracy, I do bring the color swatch over to the BenQ when I need to paint.
As for the image quality of the BenQ, all the positive adjectives have been used in many other reviews! Stunning, jaw-dropping, amazing, gorgeous...
The stand is solid, and overall build quality seems excellent. The placement of the connection ports on the side works well for my set up.
The one problem I've had is with the onboard USB 3.0 hub. It has conflicts with my Asus Z370 motherboard, actually disabling one of the desktop's front ports and even causing sporadic problems with my mouse and keyboard connected to the back of the desktop. For now I've disconnected the monitor's USB cable. Even before ordering the monitor I had planned to install a PCI-e to USB 3.0 expansion card because my Asus motherboard doesn't provide enough USB connections anyway. Once that is squared away I'll update this review. Note that I haven't yet contacted BenQ, which I should! (I'm not dinging a star for this now because, honestly, with a new desktop build, I can't yet say whether this problem is on Asus or BenQ.)
To sum up, this is an outstanding monitor, absolutely up to professional photography standards. I'm very glad I purchased it and would highly recommend it to friends.
