LED seems to be the new trend. 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?

Hi I suggest to anyone to check out the BenQ global website as they have more specifications there.

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

I wouldn't call a PC monitor with a TN panel backlit by LED lights "premium quality".

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?

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).
