BenQ has started to make available its new GW2765HT IPS monitor in Europe. This 27-inch monitor offers a 2560x1440 QHD (WQHD) display, flicker free performance and a low blue light mode to reduce eye-tiredness. BenQ also boasts it provides "the most lifelike colours from virtually every angle".
"The new GW units offer users elegance, high quality, and high performance at an affordable price," said Bob Wudeck, Associate Vice President, Strategy and Business Development at BenQ America Corp. "Their slim, innovative design coupled with multisource connectivity and BenQ's RevolutionEyes technology, including features such as Reading Mode, offers users a total solution for the home or office."
The screen is part of BenQ's Flicker-free range of monitors, which eliminates flickering in order to reduce eye fatigue. It offers 1000:1 contrast ratio, 4ms response time, 350 cd/m2 brightness, 178/178 viewing angles, 1.07 billion colour depth and 100% sRGB coverage from its W-LED backlight.
Another health conscious feature of the GW2765HT is BenQ's special Low Blue Light technology, which is designed specifically to target the problem of blue light exposure, which can cause eye damage and sleeplessness. The monitor will come with four preset Low Blue Light modes, via embedded OSD hot keys and includes Multimedia – 30% reduction, Web-surfing – 50% reduction, Office – 60% reduction, and Reading – 70% reduction.
The resolution and larger screen will provide users 77 per cent more work space and sharper viewing experience compared to conventional 1920x1080 FHD monitors. However, a 60Hz refresh rate could be disappointing for gamers who are interested in using this screen for fast paced competitive action games.
The monitor comes with a fully adjustable stand with adjustments including tilt, height, swivel and rotate. D-sub, DL-DVI, DisplayPort and HDMI video connections are available. In addition a pair of 1W stereo speakers and an audio in and out connection is also integrated.
The monitor is currently available in the US retailing for around $550 and the UK for around £350, customers in other European countries should be able to find this monitor is available now. Below is a detailed spec list for those who are interested.
