Great quality, lots of nice features (e.g. built in usb3 hub and SD slot).
We'll buy another dozen....

Let me start with something I did not find clear - the auto-rotate feature only works on Windows (not Mac and not Mac running Parallels) and with the software installed that is provided by BenQ (which only runs on Windows which is why).
However I've found that to be insignificant, if I really wanted a portrait monitor I can go into the system settings and change that.
The monitor on the whole is an absolute triumph - 4k is yet to be supported properly by Parallels running Windows but again it is easy to cope as long as you don't use Windows programs all the time. Mac handles the 4k resolution like a dream!
The controller and menu are very easy and although the screen seems very yellow when you switch to 'low blue light' mode, it is very noticeable and a bit strange. However you do feel your eyes less strained and after around 30 minutes, if you're just word processing or code editing (where colour matching isn't too important) you won't notice it and will feel much better at the end of the day.
The stand is top quality, the positioning abilities are great, speakers for a monitor are fine but anyone really into sound won't be too chuffed with them, but then those people should have a speaker system independently anyway, it is a monitor 1st and fore-most, speakers should always be runners up in performance.
I love my new monitor, it gives so much work space as you'd expect, very accurate and an all round great performer as all the other reviews say.
I don't remember thinking that any other review I saw/read was inaccurate so take a good look around at what people are saying, and if it suits your needs, and your budget - you will not be disappointed.
On another note, Scan were a fantastic company to order from - amazing price, speedy delivery, great customer service and a pleasure to do business with. I previously ordered from another company only pennies cheaper who proved to be absolutely terrible with no phone support and very slow email responses. If Scan sell what you want to buy, I say go for it!

I upgraded from a 30" 2560x1600 IPS monitor, the Dell 3007WFP-HC, an incredibly high quality monitor.
I'm really happy with this panel, the 32" is perfect for 4k, if you have good eyesight you can use 4k UHD at native resolution in windows without scaling which gives a huge amount of retail space to work with.
My panel came with 0 dead pixels and 0 dead/stuck sub pixels which means all 24,883,200 sub pixels are good, this is amazing quality control by BenQ
Don't underestimate the benefit of IPS especially at this size, many of the new cheaper 4k panels are TN and provide very bad viewing angles, with such a large screen it leads to uneven colours at the edge and corners, the IPS keeps up in this regard and provides a quality experience. It's also one of the fastest IPS panels for 4k with a 4ms G2G which means ghosting is not noticeable and it's provides a great gaming experience.

I bought this monitor to use with my new 3XS Dual Titan X system and I'm extremely pleased with it. The image quality is superb and the colours look fantastic. It has a very even backlight with no patchy areas that I can discern.
GTA 5, Elite Dangerous and Dragon Age Inquisition all look absolutely stunning running at 4k!
I also love the pop-out control pad with the three big buttons for quickly swapping between Low Blue Light (work) and sRGB (play) modes.
The 32" size means that it's also usable for desktop apps even with the standard Windows font sizes (although this will depend on eyesight I imagine).

Rated 4 out of 5 by Constantine Good choice for a 4K
It has replaced my 30" Dell monitor and I am quite happy with it. Using Windows 10 the fonts and icons scale reasonably well, although sometimes I have to sit a bit closer than I used to. The large workspace is genuinely useful.
Very happy with the ergonomics overall.
I would be tempted to go for a slightly bigger screen next time, but then again the next size seems to be 40", which is too big.
