Does the BenQ SW272U Paper Color Sync Really Work?
« on: October 09, 2023, 01:19:02 pm »

The BenQ SW272U display has a Paper Color Sync function that claims to simulate the look and properties of paper+printer combinations (essentially soft proofing images). Does anyone have any experience with this feature?

And why use it when Photoshop and Lightroom Classic can do this while editing?

Good question. I am thinking of getting the display and I was curious about the usefulness of this feature.

I am considering the BenQ SW272U, the EIZO CS2740, and the new Samsung ViewFinity S9 (and perhaps the Apple Studio Display). Which would you recommend, Andrew?

SpectraView's (through MultiProfiler) has had such features for years, and again, I don't know why anyone with a modern application that soft proofs while editing would need it.
