Over on BenQ's website is a new product page for its EX3203R, a 32-inch class (31.5 inches) monitor utilizing a curved VA panel with a 2560x1440 (WQHD) resolution and blazing fast 144Hz refresh rate. The new display is also one of not many models (relatively speaking) to feature support for AMD's FreeSync 2 technology, which expands on the first-generation FreeSync protocol. To bear the FreeSync 2 badge, a monitor must have support for Low Framerate Compensation (LFC). It also introduces improved support for high dynamic range (HDR) gaming. "Gamers have spoken and they've made FreeSync™ the overwhelming choice and definitive industry standard for smooth, stutter-free gaming," AMD's Scott... Read more...

Who else could possible get into the tablet game at this point? Maybe the question should be who couldn't possibly get in. BenQ, a company that has traditionally focused more on monitors and accessories, has announced plans to unveil a tablet at CES 2011. When the show kicks off from Las Vegas next month, BenQ will be on hand to reveal their first 10.1" tablet, one that has a 1024x600 resolution touch panel, Android and a Samsung processor clocked at 833MHz. The CPU is ARM-based, and according to reports, the company hopes to "sell the R100 in content deals that pair the device with reading material such as books, or magazine and newspaper subscriptions." The battery will be able to last for... Read more...
Despite the fact that Amazon and Barnes & Noble essentially have the eReader market cornered, companies are still continuing to pour out alternatives as if the market is still blooming. BenQ hasn't been known for their dabbling in the eReader market before, but considering just how many outfits are now challenging the NOOK and Kindle, why not another? The new eReader K61 is a second-generation device, complete with integrated Wi-Fi, 3G and a touch screen. The unit just went on sale in Taiwan for a little over $300 (U.S.), boasting a 6" touch panel, support for doodling, Chinese, Japanese and English-language reading capabilities, text-to-speech in Chinese and English and 200 pre-loaded books....

It appears an epiphany went and hit BenQ upside its head, and that is if it wants to "lead and become a true and professional gaming monitor provider," BenQ has to "understand the mindset and needs of gamers." Those are BenQ's words, not ours, though we fully agree -- the way it works in business, it typically helps to understand the consumers you're trying to sell product to. BenQ has a bigger point there than just a Business 101 message. They've gone and released their newest display, the 23.6-inch LED Gaming Monitor XL2410T, which was co-developed by ZOWIE, a professional Gaming gear manufacturer. Featuring a 120Hz refresh rate and quick 2ms GTG (OverDrive) response time, BenQ promises lag... Read more...

BenQ has certainly made an impact in the LCD industry, and while it has been some time since we viewed a unique new entrant from the company, along comes this to really change things up. The company has seemingly been hoarding up its monitors in preparation for a single major release, as they have just introduced a dozen new V Series models that focus on slimness and energy efficiency. The range includes 18.5" models (V920/V920P), 21.5" models (V2220/V2220P/V2220H/V2220HP), a 23" model (V2320) and two 24" models (V2420/V2420H). This whole bunch is extremely thin and stylish, and they all feature DVI/VGA ports while HDMI 1.3 and headphone jacks are available on the "H" versions. The 18.5”W,... Read more...

It has been quite awhile since we've seen a new LCD from BenQ. Recently, the company has been focusing its efforts on notebooks and netbooks, 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,... Read more...
We're still anxiously awaiting that Android-based netbook from BenQ, but until then, we've got yet another netbook in the company's expanding Joybook line. Sporting a classic, all-black case, the Joybook Lite U102 boasts a larger-than-usual trackpad that we're certainly falling for, an undisclosed Intel Atom processor, a 10.1" UltraVivid WSVGA display (LED-backlit), a 250GB hard drive and a "petite" AC adapter.The machine weighs in at around 1kg (or 2.2 pounds), so it's certainly one of the lightest ways to get Windows XP in your suitcase. BenQ also includes a pair of stereo speakers, a webcam, integrated microphone, Wi-Fi and optional 3.5G HSUPA mobile broadband. There's even a dedicated hotkey... Read more...
Calling it an ultra-portable netbook, BenQ has launched its latest Joybook Lite T131. Running on AMD’s Yukon chipset and Sempron processor, the Joybook Lite manages to pack a 13.3-inch WXGA (1280x800) display with anti-glare, 1 GB of RAM (upgradable to 2 GB), a 250/320 GB hard drive, a 2-in-1 card reader, and built in 802.11b/g/n into its body. The T131 weighs just under four pounds and measures approximately 1.1 inches thick. The T131 ships with Windows Vista Home Basic, but you can upgrade to Windows Vista Business if you like.

BenQ, the company's whose mobile division filed for bankruptcy two years ago, is attempting a comeback by unveiling its intentions to launch an Android based smartphone and netbook sometime next year. The announcement means BenQ is now part of a growing list of companies that are either making or planning to make smartphones and mini-laptops based on the Android OS. BenQ is not new to the smartphone world. The company already has Symbian and Windows Mobile handsets such as the E72 shown here. Assuming the new phone is designed and built properly, an Android phone could help BenQ gain some market share. A few years ago, BenQ was a contender in the worldwide mobile phone industry, but its acquisition... Read more...
One could argue that the past 12 to 18 months have been all about netbooks, but all-in-one PCs sure are making a comeback here lately. Following up on efforts from Lenovo, MSI, Dell, Averatec and countless others is BenQ, who has just unveiled its stylish nScreen i91. As you'd expect, this is the company's very first all-in-one PC, and clearly its design team spent some long nights piecing things together.BenQ seems to be marketing this as more of a household / lifestyle PC than a workhorse, leaving most of the hard specifications to the imagination and focusing instead on aesthetics and overall features. We are told that it boasts an 18.5-inch widescreen display, a 1.3 megapixel webcam for video... Read more...
