It has been quite awhile since we've seen a new LCD from BenQ
. Recently, the company has been focusing its efforts on notebooks
, but it's good to see that the ole monitor hasn't completely gone out the window. Just this week, the outfit introduced the new E Series of displays, with both of the introductory models (E2220HD and E2420HD) boasting Full HD panels.
All told, both monitors feature no fewer than 11 connectors, including two HDMI, four USB, VGA, DVI and three audio ports. Clearly designed to function as both a monitor and a bedroom HDTV, these displays also include twin stereo speakers in case your own external music makers aren't nearby. A 50,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, 300-nit brightness, and blur-free response times (2ms GTG for 24" E2420HD; 5ms for 22" E2220HD) additionally underlie solid display performance.
One other notable technology is included on both panels--the next-generation Senseye 3 optimizes contrast, clarity, color, and motion at the touch of a button for all multimedia and office display scenarios: Standard (office and Internet), Movie (DVD and TV), Game, Photo, sRGB (for 100% color consistency across all sRGB devices), and Eco (for power-savings) modes. Senseye 3 dramatically boosts image quality by expanding the color gamut beyond RGB (red, green, blue) to incorporate CYM (cyan, yellow, magenta).
The E2220HD and E2420HD will be available worldwide from the beginning of August, though prices have yet to be revealed.
