BenQ has announced the EW2420 (24-inch) Backlit-LED LCD Monitor as part of its new EW series line. The monitor offers a 16:9 Full HD Vertical Alignment-panel, 178°/178° viewing angle, True 3,000:1 Native Contrast Ratio and BenQ's proprietary Senseye® Human Vision Technology all on a true 8-bit panel.
The EW series is geared towards the digital video enthusiasts as it comes equipped with a wide range of ports, enhancing the enjoyment of user's video viewing without interruption. Users can keep an array of digital devices permanently plugged in simultaneously and switch between gaming console, DVD player, webcam, PC, iPod, and others without the need for plugging, unplugging and switching cables. Complementing this, it has a considerate design of headphone hanger on the back of the monitor to conveniently help users store their headsets.
The EW Series is further enhanced by BenQ's proprietary Senseye® Human Vision Technology, producing fuller, richer, clearer and more detailed images, even for the darkest scenes. Senseye 3's six preset modes give users the luxury of one-touch optimization for the most popular applications: Game, Movie, sRGB, Standard, Photo, and Eco modes. Today's on-demand consumer will likewise appreciate the EW Series' ability to instantly display content when powered up, another benefit of LED over CCFL technology. Moreover, BenQ's sRGB colour consistency on a true 8-bit panel (16.7M colour panel) allows users to have a convenient way to get consistent colours. Be confident that the colours shown on screen are the colours to be printed.
BenQ claims its Vertical Alignment (VA) LED-based panels have better color reproduction, an ultra high contrast ratio, display blacks more accurately because of its capability to produce true black with zero bright dot (ZBD) and able to minimize light leakage. To display blacks more accurately means these VA LED-based panels have better contrast and detail in dark-coloured movie scenes. VA panels are also known to have a wider viewing angle (178°/178°) compared to a regular Twisted Nematic (TN) panel before notable brightness and colour shifts, so your monitor can be shared across the room with more people, with more angles, more fun.
HDMI 1.3 and headphone jack are available on models designated with an “H”. The EW series comes equipped with DVI-D; HDMI x2; D-Sub; USB x4; Line-in; headphone jack and 1.5W x2 audio speakers – offering diverse connectivity options consumers demand.
The EW2420 will be available in US around mid-August (check price).
