BenQ Announces GW2760HS 27-inch Monitor

BenQ announced the GW2760HS, a new 27-inch AMVA LCD monitor that takes advantage of W-LED backlit illumination, which minimizes micro-flickering. Conventional LED-backlit displays use PWM (pulse-width modulation), in which brightness is increased or decreased by adjusting the time interval in which pulses of energy is sent to the diodes. The monitor uses other, more analogue methods of voltage control, resulting in flicker-free illumination. The GW2760HS is also characterized by a slim bezel.

The AMVA LCD panel of the GW2760HS [sadly] features 1920 x 1080 pixels resolution, 4 ms response time, 3,000:1 static contrast ratio with dynamic mega-contrast, 178°/178° viewing angles, and 300 cd/m² maximum brightness. Display inputs include DVI, HDMI, and D-Sub. Its stand allows basic tilt adjustments. Pricing and availability information was not released.

And even with such "sad" specs it still has a pretty damn good picture! Well the older model anyways :o

I have the 2750 and once I set it up a bit I was quite impressed with the quality, especially considering I paid less than $300 out the door...

I thought they would have produced a much better monitor than my current one which is a BenQ monitor too (exact model in my system specs) and it's getting a little dated now (but it is still very good for what it is and hasn't failed me during games or anything for that matter).

At this point I kind of view 1920x1080 monitors as simply budge monitors. I’ve seen name brand new 27” 1920x1080 monitors for ~$200 USD.

It's 1080, people would hate on it even if it's on a 13 incher.

I did the math, it's pushing 4 PPI.

I punched one of those in it's pixelated face and only hit one pixel.

You don't need to pixelize Japenese porn.

There are monitors from the '80s that pull a better PPI than that.

Give me a few colored lightbulbs, I'll make a better-looking monitor.

Your mouse is the size of your head.

Remember that Window's font rendering only goes down to 90 DPI (if I remember correctly).

Large print monitor?

Its 81.5 PPI.

Sweet monitor but edge lit is pretty bad with backlight bleeding, I wish they would start using direct lit panels like samsung tv's no backlight bleeding.

Yeah it is a good monitor but this day in age 24" should be the largest you go with 1080p.
I to think the 1080p monitors are more of a budget option now days getting 24" Asus monitors for $115 new. 27 1440p should be becoming the norm for computer users.
