Product Review: BenQ 27-in PD2710QC Display Monitor for CAD …

It is not very often that Architosh publishes hardware reviews, but we were delighted to find BenQ knocking on our door asking us to review the new BenQ 27-inch QHD Design Monitor PD2710QC. This is a newer version of a product line the company started awhile back aimed at design and CAD professionals. Architosh’s interest in this review aligned with our interest in the upcoming new modular workstation Apple is developing for introduction in 2018. Unlike the forthcoming iMac Pro which contains an integral display, the “modular” Mac Pro Apple has promised its loyal pro users will need its own display or multiple displays.

As one thinks about what that machine may become it’s time for its future customers–one of which I hope to be–to begin thinking about good monitor options. BenQ–as a monitor company–is making products that Apple’s pro users should be thinking about and consider.

01 – The BenQ 27 PD27QC Design Series monitor is meant for CAD/Animation workflows. For this review Architosh setup the new BenQ monitor to a new Apple MacBook Pro with the Touch Bar.

The BenQ PD2710QC is particularly ideal for designers and technical CAD users alike who are touting one of Apple’s latest pro laptops. Let’s take a look now to understand why this monitor is something you should be shortlisting for your future display needs, whether on Mac or PC.

The BenQ PD2710QC–Overview on its Design

The BenQ PD2710QC (which I will call the BenQ 27 for the rest of this article) sports a lovely and minimal bevel edge design. (image 01) It is a two-toned affair with a matt black finish wrapping the screen front and edge with a space gray metal finish that compliments the black surfaces. The aluminum looking material is a plastic material, it is not a metal.

The build quality feels and looks excellent; there are a heft and solidness to this display without any sense of unnecessary weight.

02 – BenQ 27 out of the box in all its glory.

03 – Back of display with video port types at right and power I/O at left.

04 – The adjustable arm’s plate slots into firmly and easily. While on the subject of how this display looks and feels it is very much warranted to note just how smooth but stable the adjustable arm mechanism is. I was surprised at how easy the display moved up and down and yet it stayed exactly where you put it.

The same is true of pivoting (rotation about the horizon axis). In these two movement functions, the BenQ 27 feels as high quality as any Apple display including the iMacs themselves.

05 – Final assembly from the rear of the unit. The BenQ 27 consists of three fundamental parts.

The first part is the large flat display itself. (image 02) It is finely detailed with a ribbed vented zone that separates the space gray metal plastic back panel from the matt black-edged display itself. (see images 02 – 04). Next is the arm with a twin-grooved adjustable slots mechanism for moving the display up and down on the arm off of a pivoting radius joint. (image 05) That part too has a matching veneer zone of space gray metal plastic. There is a reveal between the two colored materials throughout this monitor that provides a most distinctive touch.

06 – The base of the unit serves as an I/O hub with SB© USB-C as the primary simplified connection to the MacBook Pro with Touch Bar–supplying power, data, video, and I/O.

The final part is the base which houses an electronic board for all the I/O. (image 06) This base consists of a slightly sloped top which is designed to hold your laptop (see images) or park a keyboard when not in use.

If you like the screen very close to you one could, theoretically, type from this position with their keyboard positioned on this plane.

iPhone X: An ugly deception?

Technically Incorrect offers a slightly twisted take on the tech that’s taken over our lives.

Oh, no it isn’t.

screenshot by Chris Matyszczyk/CNET

You must be quite tense. There’s less than a week to go[1] before you must decide whether to part with £999 — or even £1,149 for the 256 GB version — in order to secure an iPhone X. (Preorders start next Friday[2].) Is it, as Apple insists, the “smartphone of the future”?

Or is it just another iPhone that’s flattering to deceive? Let’s talk about the deception part, because it’s been disturbing me for some weeks now. Apple is marketing iPhone X on its site with these simple words[3]: “It’s all screen.”

It’s short. It’s memorable. Indeed, I have only one problem with it.

Look, I don’t want to be picky, but the iPhone X isn’t all screen. Look even for a moment and you’ll see there’s an ugly black blob at the top of the screen. It’s there to house the TrueDepth camera[4], which will determine whether you are who you look like you are via FaceID[5].

“It offends me. It’s ungainly and unnatural,” influential Apple commentator John Gruber mused[6] of the so-called notch. “I think Jony Ive either lost a bet or lost his mind.

It looks silly, and to pretend otherwise is nonsense,” he added. The marketing, however, tries to turn the nonsense into magical truth. Recently, Ken Segall — who spent 12 years creating ads for Steve Jobs’ Apple and NeXT — offered[7] that Apple’s advertising had always been “intelligent and accurate.”

Oh, I don’t know about that. Remember the “Genius” ads[8] that suggested Apple’s employees would be only too happy to help you if you turned up at their apartment? I suspect that wasn’t accurate. (And Apple tried to excise the ads from the web.)

I’m not sure the most recent promise of “Practically Magic[9]” is all too near the truth either, given that the words were first said about the rather prosaic iPhone 7. Still, Segall is similarly perturbed by the all-screen idea. He sees it as Apple “playing loose with words and images.”

“Of course we can see with our own eyes that iPhone X is not all-screen. It has a noticeable edge around the entire display, which even the Samsung S8 does not have. And then there is ‘the notch,'” he said.

Yes, the notch that only seems less prominent when you have a picture on the screen that happens to have a black area at the top. Does Cupertino believe it can inject the All-Screen thought into human minds and expect people to buy it over the evidence of their own eyes? Did no one, for a moment, stop to wonder whether there might be other, less inaccurate formulations?

And what if, one day, Apple releases a notchless phone? Will Apple simply not mention the screen? Or will it go for “Notchless.

Matchless.”? Apple didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. I do, though, have a depressing thought.

No, not the one that says, “this is just advertising and no one expects it to be accurate.” Look around. We live in an era in which so much of what we hear is, if I may borrow the phrase the president invented[10], fake news.

What’s a little exaggeration when faced with the blatant nonsense that’s peddled at us every day? Look at my picture. I’m all handsome.

Wouldn’t you agree?
