BenQ announces four new LED backlit LCD monitors among them the world’s first 21.5” LED widescreen monitor. And all of them green-labeled in terms of saving energy. Already launched in China mid-August according to this post: http://www.newlaunches.com/archives/benq_v2200_eco_worlds_first_215_led_widescreen_monitor.php, but no price tag added yet. Anybody knows more?

From what I can see the V series seem to be the premium quality with things like HDMI and boasting 0% light leakage where the G series focuses on extreme efficiency. check it out @ http://www.benq.com/products/LCD/ release date I'm guessing/hoping christmas 2009 Luke m 0 l jaguarskx a c 195 C Monitor September 12, 2009 10:49:28 PM I wouldn't call a PC monitor with a TN panel backlit by LED lights "premium quality". m 0 l Related resources Asus VG248QE 24-inch 3D LED Monitor vs BenQ XL2411T 24 inch Widescreen LED Monitor - Forum Should I purchase a BENQ GW2750HM, 27" VA Panel Widescreen Full LED monitor? - Forum Asus VG248QE 24-inch 3D LED Monitor vs BenQ XL2411T 24 inch Widescreen LED Monitor - Forum Can't find your answer ?

They may be premium for a TN panel, but they can't possibly compete with a good VA or IPS panel for quality. m 0 l Hyno September 17, 2009 12:32:50 PM cjl said:Yeah - those are all TN panels. They may be premium for a TN panel, but they can't possibly compete with a good VA or IPS panel for quality. Right, but on the other hand VA or IPS are by far more expensive. So, for those who want a good monitor for a reasonable price, these BenQ monitors should be a good choice. By the way, is a LED backlit VA or IPS already on the market? m 0 l cjl a b C Monitor September 18, 2009 2:50:39 PM Not that I know of, although they do use special tweaked fluorescents that are basically as good (aside from the higher power use and heat output). m 0 l Can't find your answer ?
