BenQ PV3200PT Review – Getting Accurate Color for a Price

The BenQ PV3200PT is being advertised as a monitor specifically for video editing, and with that you will be able to get a display panel with great color accuracy. This 32-inch UHD monitor uses In-Plane Switching (IPS) for its panel to deliver great color reproduction and perhaps an even better grayscale reproduction. It even offers a bunch of picture settings for all of your color needs. All of these are great, which does justify quite the extreme heft in its price tag.

The BenQ PV3200PT is a Superior Monitor Built for Video Editing

The BenQ PV3200PT looks quite identical to the company’s own BL3201BH. In that sense, you will still get a similar approach in terms of design. It has a matte-black cabinet that comes with a measurement of 17.2 x 29.1 x 2.6-inches, and it weighs approximately 25-pounds. It even has a stand that comes with the package that can change tilt and height for the cabinet, and it also allows the display to adjust pivot and swivel. Perhaps the biggest difference for this monitor is more likely to be seen inside rather than outside.

The PV3200PT is able to cover 100-percent of the sRGB color space, while still also being able to cover 100-percent of the Rec.709 color space. This 32-inch IPS panel is able to deliver a maximum resolution of 3,840 x 2,160, and it displays images in a 16:9 wide aspect ratio. It utilizes 10-bit color technology, and a 14-bit Look-Up Table (LUT). Furthermore, it also supports hardware calibration with the use of the company’s downloadable Proprietary Palette Master Element Calibration Software along with a third-party colorimeter.

When it comes to performance, this particular high-end monitor is an all-around performance bringing great advantages. The reds, greens, and blues are all on-point, and colors are rich and uniform throughout the entire panel. There are no evidences of tinting nor oversaturation no matter what you throw at it.

The BenQ PV3200PT also offers superior gray-scale performance, and it does provide excellent highlight and shadow detail. Viewing angles are wide and there are no signs of color shifting when viewing at different positions. However, when you do use the display for videogame purposes, you will see a bit of ghosting here-and-there which is primarily due to input lag, and these are most notable in dark scenes. While this is not a gaming monitor, it is still able to do a good-enough performance on that regard. But if you’re the type that does a lot of video and image editing, and has the spending allowance for it, then look no further than this unit.
