BenQ has made a substantial update to its range of monitors with the launch of no fewer than 12 models in its W-series. With sizes ranging from 18.5″ to 24″, they’re all built with a slim design and low power consumption in mind. The key to achieve this is a LED-based backlight which, in addition to the thin profile, also gives an impressive dynamic contrast ratio of 10 million to 1.
BenQ’s new V-monitors are no thicker than 15mm, where some models will ship with HDMI 1.3a inputs, others with DVI and D-Sub along with several environmental certifications.
BenQ reports that its new monitors will consume 44% less power, however it is unclear what it’s compared to. It’s also reported that their V-series, among other things, won the iF design Award 2010. Most models will be introduced to the market as early as February or March, with exception for the 23-inch model which is expected to appear sometime during June. Prices were not revealed.
