9to5Mac’s take

Lots of nice smaller improvements make this a compelling option for Mac creative pros at just $1,100.

It would have been nice to see BenQ go for a 5K panel and offer more than 85W of power through the Thunderbolt port. However, that would have bumped the price closer to Apple’s Studio Display or Samsung’s ViewFinity S9.
