Pros and cons

According to our monitor expert
  • Thanks to the 100% coverage of the sRGB and Rec. 709 color space, colors are displayed realistically, which lets you edit your photos and videos more accurately.
  • The WQHD screen has 75% more pixels than a Full HD screen, so it produces much sharper images than a Full HD screen.
  • Thanks to the thin bezel, this monitor is suitable for a multi-screen setup.
  • With a 60Hz refresh rate, images aren't as smooth as they would be at 75Hz or higher.

Description

With the BenQ PD2500Q, you can work on professional graphic and color-sensitive tasks such as editing photos, and designing CAD models and animations. The screen conjures up all details on the screen in a realistic fashion due to the high WQHD resolution and the accurate color representation of the IPS panel. The high brightness and the 100% coverage of the sRGB and Rec. 709 color spaces also make the monitor very suitable for professional photo and video editing. Adjust the monitor to the right height and angle to relieve yourself of neck and shoulder strain after working long hours designing. Do you need more workspace? Thanks to the thin bezel, you can easily set up a couple of these monitors side by side without any thick borders standing in the way.

    Beautiful screen for a good price. Highly recommended.

    • Good image quality and easy to set up.
    • Works great with the new macbook version.
    • Clear picture
    • Design is fine, sturdy monitor.
    • None yet.

    I was looking for a good alternative to my old Apple Thunderbolt 27” display, which I recently sold. Incidentally, the Apple monitor was an excellent monitor with a beautiful design, especially in combination with. my macbook. However, through work I have a Windows laptop and unfortunately I could not connect it to it and since I also work at home, connection to an external monitor is handy. In addition, I was / am of the opinion that there are now excellent alternatives that are a lot cheaper. So the apple display was able to sell well with some pain in the heart and thoroughly researched a good alternative and finally, after doubts between 3 remaining monitors (of which 2 27” monitors), came up with the slightly smaller BenQ PD2500Q. Absolutely no regrets about this choice. Monitor is packaged well and firmly, and also easy to take out :-) without a mess that remains behind, such as poo foam that crumbles completely. The monitor is easy to assemble and ready for use. The monitor works great in combination with my work laptop (HP probook) and my private macbook. The settings can easily be adjusted to your own liking. I use the macbook setting on the monitor 1-on-1 for my macbook (so no awkward search for the right setting). Absolutely great. In addition, the monitor has enough connections (HDMI, (mini) display port, USB) and a blue light filter, which is very pleasant for your eyes. I'm actually very happy that I chose this 25” monitor and not another 27” monitor. The size is perfect and big enough for me. The edges are very narrow and you can easily place another monitor next to it as a second screen. The price is fine and you get, in my opinion, real value for money. In fact... for the price of an Apple Thunderbolt display or a more expensive 27” monitor, you can buy two of these PD2500Q monitors. I will definitely buy a second monitor in due course.

    Great product!

    • Super sharp image
    • Adjustable in height
    • Lots of connections
    • Good RGB color rendering
    • Not too big and not too small
    • Can't find one yet

    I originally had a 4K monitor, but the letters were too small to read clearly. Since I've always scaled back to 1440p, it seemed more sensible to buy a 2K monitor since I rarely if ever use 4K. So bought this monitor (also for light graphic work). Absolutely no regrets! The fact that the monitor is adjustable in height is also a big plus. It's been working fine here for a few weeks now, so definitely recommended if you like a good image and a monitor that's not too big.

    good monitor

    Hubert Graafmolen | 17 June 2018 | In this version: BenQ PD2500Q | Automatically translated from Dutch

    • Nice colours
    • ideal size for this resolution
    • slight backlight bleeding
    • USB ports are in a very awkward place

    Calm image with beautiful colors, calibrated in the factory. The PPI of 117 (2560x1440 on 25'') is obviously higher than with a 27'' panel with the same resolution, letters on the screen are large enough and easily legible. Many presets, including a Low Blue Light mode that is especially nice when working at night.

    Because of the 1.2'' larger screen, the larger letters and nicer colors, it just beats the somewhat older and cheaper BENQ BL2420PT 23.8'' which has received an award from Hardware Info. 25'' is ideal for this resolution. The BL2420PT seems to have a better screen, just a bit sharper and quieter. The PD2500Q has more backlight bleeding. The anti-glare coating is also slightly better on the 2420PT, the screen is matte. For gaming and movies the 2500Q wins, for work the 2420PT is just a bit more pleasant, provided that smaller but sharp letters are not a problem.

    The ambient sensor that adjusts the brightness of the screen itself is a modern torture device, but it can easily be turned off.

    Very positive about the screen
    • Image quality
    • Bright colors
    • No tools required to secure the monitor to the base
    • Speakers

    Sharp image quality, installing the screen can be done without tools. only the HMDI cables could have been a little longer...

    Calibrated 2k screen
    • Beautiful colors (screen is calibrated and has 100% sRGB coverage)
    • Beautiful design
    • Sharp image
    • The speakers don't sound right

    Nice monitor that is not too big. Good experience.

    The alternative for the cost-conscious creative.
    • No tools required to attach the monitor to the base.
    • Clear instructions included.
    • Beautifully lifelike colors ideal for photo and/or video editing.
    • USB 3.0 hub on the left for 3 devices.
    • The monitor is nicer than in the picture itself.
    • The supplied display port cable is from 'standard to mini'.

    This monitor replaces my 'centuries old' 15 inch LCD screen (max resolution 1024 x 768) so the increase in quality is enormous. Gambling whether I make the right color adjustments in my photos and videos is a thing of the past thanks to the color profiles of this monitor. 'Out of the box' the monitor is sharply adjusted: I had the idea that I needed sunglasses, especially if the image had a lot of white.

    The monitor comes well packaged/protected and the base can even be mounted without removing the monitor completely from the styrofoam protection. This keeps the risk of damage very low.

    You don't need little hands to assemble it or connect the cables. The USB 3.0 hub is extremely handy for connecting card readers, sticks, etc., without having to 'fudge' on the computer housing.

    For now and the coming years I have enough pixels to work with ;-).

    Recommended for a very reasonable price

    After much hesitation, I chose this BenQ: I like it just fine! Easy to install and very easy to connect to the Macbook and choose the desired settings (pre-programmed by BenQ). The device looks nicer and more elegant in real life than in the photo. As far as I'm concerned, a real recommendation

    Good graphic companion
    • sRGB and Rec.709
    • Stable adjustable foot
    • The provided inputs/outputs
    • Self-adjustable presets (e.g. low blue light mode) that you can call up directly via push buttons
    • speakers are a joke
    • Attached Display Pilot software crashes
    • No way to keep the USB ports energized

    Used for wide range of tasks with a lot of graphical and simple CAD work. No games, but video etc. Works fine.

    Just a really good product
    • Sharp, clear image
    • Low energy consumption
    • Fine resolution
    • Proximity sensor - display can turn on/off automatically when you're sitting in front of it

    Very nice monitor, with good resolution, clear and sharp image. The proximity sensor is also a plus.
