I use a desktop computer, and have for over 20 years. I always do a lot of research before I buy a new desktop, and then look for the largest and cheapest monitor to go with it. I have never paid any attention to anything else in regards to computer monitor specs, except maybe a sign that says something about less glare. My entire blog comes to life from this little corner of my bedroom, so the right monitor is key. BenQ is the right monitor: it has amazing features that help cut down glare and keep my dry eyes from wearing out, just to name a few!
Thankfully I met the BenQ folks at a recent event. I was blown away by all the information that I had been ignoring when purchasing computer monitors in the past. This old behavior is not smart because I am at my computer all day long and without the proper monitor, my eyes are going to be overworked. I already suffer from dry eye and have to put drops in my eyes during the night. And now I have a chance to start to alleviate that situation with my new, gorgeous, and very large BenQ monitor!
BenQ has several eye-care™ features that are perfect for every computer owner. The above 32” monitor has several of these eye-care features like ZeroFlicker™, Low Blue Light, and Brightness Intelligence Plus, which is a great option for casual gamers like my son (who should be using it to do his homework first!) and for a home office setup. It is perfect for everyone and anyone who sits at a computer to work, play, or study!
1. The ambient light sensor detects ambient light levels and the color temperature in your viewing environment, automatically adjusting on-screen brightness and color temperature to fit your surroundings. It also gradually adjusts brightness based on one’s usage time. This offers the best display quality for users’ viewing comfort, preventing eye strain and protecting your eyes after you watch monitors for hours.
-Unless it is time to go into the kitchen to burn dinner, I may be at the computer for several uninterrupted hours. The auto adjust protects me when I do not remember to take a break from my computer work! I am also at a desk in my bedroom, and the sunlight affects my viewing depending on the time of day, this computer can detect and correct for some of those changes!
2. Smart Focus highlights the selected window or area, helping users concentrate on the main viewing content by reducing distractions in the background.
– I can enlarge a YouTube screen for viewing, or I can highlight a smaller YouTube window with this targeted smart focus. The viewer is in control:
3. Global safety authority TÜV Rheinland certifies EW3270U’s ZeroFlicker™ , Low Blue Light, and Brightness Intelligence Plus as truly friendly to the human eye.
– Some blue light is essential for good health. Research has shown that high-energy visible light boosts alertness, helps memory and cognitive function and elevates mood. But more is not better. Those of us who view a screen for several hours a day may be getting more blue light then is healthy, it is a big contributor to digital eye strain, that is why these BenQ monitors are better for your eyes!
4. EW3270U’s simple hotkey switches between 4 levels of HDR and B.I.+ modes, which constitute BenQ’s exclusive Opt-Clarity Technology, allow users to select the most suitable clarity for displayed content based on the conditions in different viewing environments, ensuring users can fully enjoy the splendid image performance of HDR while maintaining the ability to see the most delicate details in dimly lit environments.
-You control the HDR with the small button on the bottom right hand side of your screen:
5. Featuring the leading HDR (high dynamic range) technology in a video enjoyment monitor, EW3270U offers enhanced brightness and contrast and brings incredible details and vividness to HDR video content.
– This is an amazing feature for gamers. I also love it for viewing movies, I have a huge digital collection and our TV’s are not updated smart machines, so this is a great screen for us to use to see the latest hit movies that I own!
Also for the gamer:
AMD FreeSync™ technology eliminates image tearing, broken frames, and choppy gameplay for incredibly fluid gaming experiences. With an improved refresh rate to bring out an ultra-smooth gaming experience, EW3270U is gamer’s dream monitor.
Lastly, LCD screens may flicker in an undetectable manner at 250 tmes per second (flicker rates cause extreme stress to eyes carelessly):
After 8 hours of monitor use, one’s eyes can perceive up to 5.8 million times of flicker, causing eye strain and can even impair one’s eyesight. BenQ’s exclusive ZeroFlicker™ technology, certified by international TÜV Rheinland, eliminates the main cause for monitor flicker. BenQ aims to professionally protect your eyes, offering everyone who spends time watching monitors a chance to enjoy with ease.
I was thrilled to hear about the science that goes into the production of these monitors. I was happy to learn more about what is available to improve my viewing experience, and to keep my eyes from deteriorating! Head to the BenQ website to learn more about my monitor, and all the other top quality monitors that BenQ produces to make your on-line life easier, and healthier!
UPDATE! I had a computer glitch on Saturday and had to call the Geek Squad. My spouse was listening as we both heard the technician remark, several times over the course of the conversation, while she had control of my computer, that the resolution on my computer monitor was fantastic, something that she had never seen before on a computer. She remarked again later that it was like a 4K TV and asked all about the brand. I was thrilled to share with her that this was my new BenQ computer monitor, and that it was the best on the market. It was amazing to get this unsolicited opinion from an expert, so there you have it!
