Supported by BenQ’s AQCOLOR Technology, the new 24.1” monitor covers 100% Rec.709, 95% DCI-P3 and 99% Adobe RGB colour space and delivers factory-calibrated colour accuracy to ensure brilliant colours, with a monitor size to suit all workspaces. The SW240 is available now and becomes the most affordable monitor in their offering, with a perfect price point for amateur photographers looking to perfect the colour in their workflow. The SW240 is available for £399 inc. VAT.

The key features are:

  • 24.1 inches, 16:10, 1920 x 1200 resolution

As the frontrunner of the professional monitor industry, BenQ has never slowed down but sought out further improvement for photographers, especially in the respect of the quality of colour reproduction, viewing comfort and user convenience. The SW240 is no different; with its 99% wide colour gamut, it’s the perfect piece of professional equipment, where the user can save money against other similar spec models, without a compromise on quality. With the help of BenQ’s Palette Master Element, hardware calibration allows you to adjust the image processing chip in the monitor without changing the graphics card output data. It keeps the images consistent with its original copies, without being affected by graphic settings.

The SW240 has a perfect screen size for photographers to do their work with ease. With a 24.1” 16:10 panel, it can display two full A4 pages plus tool palettes, for photographers to easily compare the content on the screen. The BenQ team always seeks the easiest way for our users to use a monitor; by upgrading user experience, they have developed a new OSD hotkey (Colour Mode HotKey) for switching 
different colour modes smartly and simply. Also, the SW240 has its edge-to-edge ultra slim bezels, allowing photographers to set up a dual-monitor workspace for an impressive view.

Preserve the true colours you captured and make sure the moments are perfect with the BenQ PhotoVue SW240.
