COSTA MESA, Calif. — Aug. 11, 2014 — BenQ America Corp., an internationally renowned provider of visual display solutions, today introduced its new additions to the GW Series of mainstream monitors, the GW2765HT and GW2265HM. Featuring BenQ’s RevolutionEyes™ technology, the displays blend perfectly within any living space or office décor with stylish attributes such as high-gloss frames, curvaceous stands, and extremely slim bezels that enable sharper-looking single or multidisplay configurations for placement in any setting.
Sporting a 27-inch 2560x1440 Wide Quad HD (WQHD) resolution, BenQ’s GW2765HT IPS monitor delivers over 77 percent more work space and higher pixels per inch (ppi) when compared to conventional 1920 x1080 full HD monitors. This results in less time spent zooming and scrolling as well as sharper and more precise viewing experiences. The 21.5-inch GW2265HM VA monitor’s 1920 x1080 native resolution and 3000:1 contrast ratio as well as its compact size make it a perfect fit for a dorm room or home office. Both units boast 178/178-degree viewing angles, 20M:1 dynamic contrast ratio, and a 6ms (GW2265HM) or 4ms (GW2765HT) GtG response time, which ensures greater visibility, color depth and definition, and quick reaction — making them ideal solutions for work or play.
“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.
All of BenQ’s GW series monitors feature the company’s RevolutionEyes technology for exceptional performance and enhanced visual comfort. Featuring BenQ’s signature, market-leading ZeroFlicker™ innovation, the displays effectively eliminate backlight flickering at all levels of brightness, increasing overall eye comfort and allowing users to spend longer periods engaged in everyday applications — be it reading, playing games, or watching videos — without being concerned about eye fatigue. Also equipped with BenQ’s exclusive Senseye® technology, the monitors’ Low Blue Light feature removes up to 70 percent of blue-spectrum light protecting users’ eyes using specific settings designed for multimedia, Web surfing, office, and onscreen reading — all without sacrificing picture quality. BenQ’s new Reading Mode automatically adjusts the screen brightness, contrast ratio, and sharpness to give users the ease of onscreen reading as if they were directly viewing hard copies without wasting any paper.
To enable a complete digital entertainment experience, the new GW monitors include a pair of 1-watt built-in speakers and high-speed HDMI® inputs, in addition to D-sub, DVI (GW2265HM), DVI-DL, and DP ports (GW2765HT). The slim monitors feature an intuitive OSD menu and support the Windows® 8 operating system.
Available now, BenQ’s new GW2265HM and GW2765HT monitors retail at $189 and $549, respectively. More information on BenQ’s full line of RevolutionEyes monitors is available at www.BenQ.us.
