BenQ Shipping Latest GW Series RevolutionEyes Monitors in the US

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.

Did I just read that there is a 2460x1440 IPS display that's only 549 USD? That's not too bad if it's a half decent panel but it still costs more than all 3 of my Dell S2340Ms did combined. I'll be interested once they drop below 400-450 USD.

It should be WAY cheaper than $549 (I assume that is USD). My reasoning? Here in Australia you can buy it for $499AUD and we all know that technology products are always (well 99% of the time) cheaper over in the US.


I'm planning to get one myself. I've heard it also shares the same panel as the BL2710PT but with a couple of added features and small tweaks.

Are single card solutions able to drive this in games? Other than just the high end cards.

It depends. Are you talking about a lot of games at max settings or almost all games? Are you willing to turn down settings and turn off AA on some games? The best thing to do is Google the card you're interested in and look at the benchmarks on several sites to get some idea. If it's averaging around 30 FPS then I would say no because your minimum FPS will probably be in the 20s maybe even the teens and probably at a time when you don't want that to be happening.

BenQ products seem to be more expensive in the USA than Europe and I guess Australia then, while ASUS monitors seem much more reasonably priced here.
