BenQ Intros 27-inch Display with VA Panel and LED-Backlit

BenQ announced a new 27-inch LED-backlit LCD monitor, the EW2730V. It makes use of a vertical-alignment (VA) panel with LED-backlit illumination, giving viewing angles of 178/178 degrees. It offers full-HD resolution (1920 x 1080), with a contrast ratio (static) of 3,000:1. VA panels are said to offer better color reproduction compared to TN-film panels. The monitor looks to be very slim, with a piano-black bezel and a brushed metal stand that has the display connectivity. Unfortunately that the biggest picture on the web, of this mysterious display.

I have a Benq 27-inch now and I really like but I have to agree with you. Until Bluray becomes more mainstream, 1080p isn't going anywhere.

We should all be praying that the next next generation of game consoles will be able to run higher than 1080P cause if not we'll be stuck with it for a long time.

People that request bigger resolution are getting boring, honestly. I'm using a 27 incher right now, but I have all web pages to
125% zoom in order to read properly. The DPI/resolution is perfect, and besides I don't want to have bigger res because of games. ;)

But I'm more interesting how it does compare to this baby: ? (LG Flatron E2750V)

I'd LOVE to have this monitor, as my PC pull double (monitor) duty, and I'm getting a little tired of my old Sanyo 26" 720p setup for couch viewing/surfing/gaming.

Guess what? Your constantly whining about high PPI is boring too.

Gotta agree with everybody about the res. If you can't read text on a 27-inch monitor at a res higher than 1080p, then you're either too far away or you need better glasses.

Some people like the idea of having more screen real-estate without having a couple bezels down the middle.

edit: not trying to be mean to anybody, just saying my opinion

The contrast seems low.

I think you are waiting for things that will not happen. Bluray is going nowhere (opinion) and the resolution of the current consoles is ok (opinion +justification below) now.

Most consoles are intended to operate on large screen TV. The viewing distance for these screens is usually in excess of 2m whreas a monitor viewing distance is about 500mm. If we assume a typical TV is twice the size of a typical monitor, but is 4 times the distance away the pixel density will appear twice as good on the TV than the monitor, for the same resolution. This is mainly why TV's look better than monitors and why there is no immediate need for higher resolution TV's, unless the size gets bigger.

The other issue is that current consoles are lagging behind game developers for rendering ability. The focus for console manufacturers will be on increasing rendering efficiency so that games can jam more graphic detail into 1920x1080. If the resolution is increased, this will compromise the improvement in hardware capacity. So the console makers will be happy if TV's stay at 1920x1080.

Unless there is a push for higher pixel density in TV's (not likely or necessary for the moment), consoles will stay at 1920x1080.

Demand for higher screen resolutions should be coming mostly from monitors and multiple monitor technology (eyefinity) due to the short viewing distance. Unfortunately, this is a much smaller market and we will need to be patient and wait for the next generation monitor that might have a pixel density in excess of 150ppi (most monitors are 90-100ppi now). By example, most new smart phones now exceed 200ppi, due to the very short reading distance.

Most ppi for monitors can be found here and for anything else, there is a tool here.

Also good info here and here

As for this benq monitor, I'd prefer to see a higher resolution on a 27" monitor.

Oh contraire, that is a true 3000:1 Most computer screens on the market (and TVs) are around 800-1000:1 Any screen that advertises higher than 1000:1 is just marketing (and lies basically). Except for screens like these, well if it was tested properly its really around 2000:1 true contrast but still much better than a normal 1000:1 screen.

Guess what? You are constantly whining by posting the same replay... ;)
