I snagged two of these over the weekend and set them both up on my MacBook Pro and they are beautiful. Took me all of 20 minutes to set them both up. The stand although not height adjustable is metal and very durable with no wobbling. I don't really game with mine but this monitor is great for watching videos, movies and doing graphic design work.

Not a lot of choice in retailers carrying the BenQSW2700PT. B&H has the best price but backordered. No telling when it will be back in stock. I found pricing at other retailers selling that model here: https://goo.gl/8JiNDi However, This retailer has this BenQ 4k model running at 3840 x 2160 http://goo.gl/JFALKA

Many years ago I bought my late father a BenQ monitor and it was rather a smart choice. I am unfamiliar with BenQ in the graphics oriented market but would appreciate you folks sharing more of your experiences. If the specs along with the actual monitor are solid, both the 4k and lesser model sound like real bargains.
