BenQ is best-known for its affordable monitors and projectors, but has also moved into creative markets with its DesignVue range of monitors. At $1,199.99, the PD3220U isn’t the cheapest 4K display available, but the 31.5-inch screen provides plenty of room for graphics and video editing, and supports 100% of the sRGB color space, as well as 95% of the DCI-P3 standard used in the film industry.

There are two HDMI ports, one DisplayPort, and two Thunderbolt 3 ports, along with a USB hub that provides three USB 3.1 ports. BenQ also provides a ‘puck’ — a small dial that plugs into the display and allows you to control the on-screen menu system and other functions.

If you want to multitask, then you can connect two computers to the display and use the picture-in-picture (PiP) and picture-by-picture (PbP) features to share the screen. You can also rotate the screen by 90-degrees to switch into portrait mode. The PD3220U even includes a built-in KVM switch that lets you share the keyboard, video and mouse between two connected computers. And, if the price or size of the PD3220U is a little over the top, then there’s a 27-inch model for $1,099.99.
