BenQ Announces the EX2780Q Monitor: 27", 2560 x 1440 IPS, 144 Hz, 5 ms, HDRi, FreeSync

BenQ today announced the release of the EX2780Q monitor, a 27" affair sporting a WQHD (2560 x 1440) resolution across its 10-bit IPS matrix (95% DCI-P3 color space coverage). The monitor offers an 144 Hz refresh rate which, when paired with the usage of AMD's FreeSync, should enable smooth gaming scenarios - though the 5 ms GtG response time gives us a whole lot of pause. The resolution is a good compromise one between 1080p and 4K when it comes to graphics muscle requirements, and should thus make the 144 Hz refresh rates actually attainable in most scenarios (something that just wouldn't happen in a 4K screen).

One of the things about this monitor, however, is the inclusion of an "HDRi" badge, which simply denotes the usage of some of BenQ's proprietary technologies - Visual Edge, Black eQualizer and Color Vibrance - essentially auto-adjustable screen brightness, some sort of proprietary implementation of dynamic contrast, and automatic color balance adjustments. The EX2780Q includes a remote control that allows on-the-fly changes on some of the settings; and I/O is taken care of by 2x HDMI 2.0, 1x DisplayPort, 1x USB-C, and a headphone port. The sound system in this monitor has been upgraded compared to others - it offers a built-in 2.1 setup of treVolo speakers (2x2 watts + 5 watts subwoofer). Pricing stands at $599.

ViewSonic Introduces New ELITE Gaming Monitors with G-SYNC IPS Nano Color and 1 ms Response Time

Alienware Announces the AW3420DW Monitor: 34" 4K, Nano Color IPS, 120 Hz, G-Sync

Alienware have announced their new flagship gaming monitor, which manifests in the form of the AW3420DW monitor. This is a 34" monitor with 4K (3440 x 1440) resolution powered by a fast, 120 Hz refresh rate IPS panel. Alienware have designed their Nano Color technology into this monitor, which means that it can cover 98% of the DCI-P3 and 134.5% of the sRGB color gamuts.

The 350 nits brightness are nothing to write home about, and exclude any sort of HDR rendition on this monitor from the start. The 1000:1 contrast ratio and the "fast" GtG response time should be more than enough for most gamers' needs, and the 1900R curvature should ensure all points of the monitor are at the same focal distance for improved image quality. NVIDIA's G-Sync makes an appearance, and output connectors include 1x DisplayPort 1.2, 1x HDMI 1.4 port, 4x USB 3.0 and 3.5-mm audio connectors. There's RGB lighting on the back of the monitor, and the full retail price of this piece of kit will go for $1,499.

AOC Announces New U2790PQ Monitor: 27" IPS, 4K Resolution

Display specialist AOC announces the new addition to its 90 Series aimed at professionals. The 27" (68.6 cm) U2790PQU offers 4K resolution (3840x2160 pixels) and a pixel density of 163 ppi, resulting in crisp images. The U2790PQU's IPS panel and 10-bit colour depth produce 1.07 billion colours, enabling subtle colour transitions. While the grey finish of its body and the 3-side frameless design make this monitor stand out in its class, its future-proof technical specifications, including the height-adjustable ergonomic stand and blue light reducing features, make the monitor a great choice for professionals and prosumers looking for a top-class solution.

Ultra HD, or simply 4K resolution (3840x2160 pixels) is slowly but surely going to replace the current mainstream 1080p (Full HD) and 1440p (Quad HD) monitors. The U2790PQU is a monitor that will be especially appreciated by content creators, video editors, digital artists, but also people working with excel sheets and other information dense applications. The extra-sharpness and vivid details thanks to the 4K resolution, together with the colour accuracy and 10-bit colour depth of the U2790PQU's IPS panel are a perfect match for the kind of work done by professionals in these fields.

ASUS Announces Mini-LED Powered ROG Swift PG27UQX G-Sync Ultimate Monitor

ASUS in partnership with NVIDIA announced at COMPUTEX 2019 their first Mini-LED powered PC monitor, which promises to bring the dimming zone game up to an unprecedented level - at least, on IPS technology. The usage of Mini-LED as lighting source for the ROG Swift PG27UQX means that there are many more areas that can be dimmed and brightened according to the displayed content: 576 of them, really, with each being comprised of mini LEDs that are a mere 200-300 micrometers in size.

The ROG Swift PG27UQX features a 27" panel with HDR support (HDR 1000 certification with up to 1,000 nits brightness). It's overclockable to a 144 Hz refresh rate, and color-wise offers DCI-P3 97% and Adobe RGB with quantum-dot technology for 99% coverage. ASUS says that the local dimming capabilities also allow for lower energy consumption (which does make sense). Connector-wise, we're looking at DisplayPort v1.4, HDMI (v2.0), 3x USB 3.0 and 1x 3.5 mm earphone jack. Being a G-Sync Ultimate panel, it features NVIDIA's latest G-Sync processor, which should bringing pricing to even higher levels than you are already expecting.

ASUS Readies ProArt PA27UCX 27-inch UHD Monitor with DisplayHDR 1000

ASUS today released its premium 27-inch monitor, the ProArt PA27UCX. The monitor is designed to look great on corner-office desks, and packs a serious feature-set. To begin with, you get 4K UHD (3840 x 2160 pixels) resolution, with DisplayHDR 1000 compliance, true 10-bpc color (1.07 billion colors), with DCI-P3, Rec. 709, Rec. 2020 and Adobe RGB wide color gamut, and color accuracy pre-calibration. The IPS panel is illuminated by micro LEDs featuring 576 zones dynamic dimming backlight control. HDR-10 and HLG are also supported. As part of the monitor's design, it only has a single USB-C connector with DisplayPort 1.4 and 60W power draw. A hub adapts standard DisplayPort and an included power-brick.

Philips Announces the Brilliance 329P9H Monitor: 32" 4K, IPS, 60 Hz, 5 ms, 350 nits

Phillips announced the latest in their Brilliance line of PC monitors. The 329P9H monitor features a 31.5" diagonal with a 4K (3840 x 2160) resolution. The panel is of the IPS type, and a fairly basic one at that when it comes to features gamers expect: a 60 Hz refresh rate and 5 ms response times aren't the most attractive for serious gaming - but then again, this monitor isn't really being marketed for serious gaming. And there's life in the PC world besides that one.

For those users that still think this monitor is interesting, the anti-glare coating and 350 nits of brightness should be interesting propositions for a more work-inspired usage scenario. The 178º angle of view and 1.07 billion colors join a wider than usual color gamut, covering 108% of the sRGB, 90% of the NTSC CIE1976, or 87% of the Adobe RGB color spaces to serve creative professionals' (or just color-correct amateurs) a precise environment. The Brilliance 329P9H also ships factory-calibrated to a Delta E < 2 accuracy. Height, tilt, and swivel are available, as well as a 90 degree rotation capability. I/O stands at 1x DisplayPort 1.2 input, 1x DisplayPort 1.2 output, 2x HDMI 2.0a, 1x USB Type-C (with DP 1.2, 65 W PD, data), as well as a 4-port USB 3.0 hub (one supports fast charging) and one Ethernet, GbE port. The recommended price for the Philips 329PH9 stands at £809, so MSRP in the US should land around the $899 mark.

ASUS Rolls Out ROG Swift PG349Q, a 120Hz Curved Ultrawide

ASUS today rolled out the ROG Swift PG349Q, one of the rare few curved ultrawide monitors with a high refresh-rate.

Its IPS panel has a rather obtuse 1900R curvature compared to the more common 1800R, with 178°/178° viewing-angles. Other vital specs include 300 cd/m² maximum brightness, 4 ms (GTG) response time, and 1000:1 static contrast ratio. The monitor offers flicker-free brightness adjustment, by using a non-PWM method to dim the LEDs illuminating the panel. The back side of the monitor and its stand are studded with RGB LEDs, which you control using Aura Sync RGB software. The monitor takes in HDMI and DisplayPort connections, and needs a USB connection to control the lighting. The company didn't reveal pricing.

LG to Introduce the 27GL850G "UltraGear" Monitor: 160 Hz, WQHD, Nano IPS, G-Sync

In yet another entry to LG's (still upcoming) UltraGear lineup of gaming monitors, the curtains have been shoved aside for the 27GL850G to make its first appearance. While 49" and 38" monitors are all well and good, and LG does have the specs on them to make them attractive buying options, some users don't really like to have that big a black mirror in front of them. And that's where the 27" diagonal of the LG 27GL850G comes in handy.

The panel is of the Nano IPS type, with a 2560 x 1440 (WQHD) resolution and support for a 160 Hz refresh rate (after overclocking, via the embedded OSD, from the native 144 Hz ). NVIDIA G-SYNC is present, supporting a variable refresh rate range of 30 - 160Hz. A 1000:1 static contrast ratio, 178° horizontal and vertical viewing angles, and a flicker-free enhanced phosphor backlight round out the specs.It's expected that the 27GL850G, via its Nano IPS tech, covers ~98% DCI-P3 (~135%) color space. Red LED lighting is present on the back of the monitor. A VESA mount is present, and tilt, height and pivot adjustments are possible. 1x DP, 1x HDMI, 2x USB 3.0 ports (with fast-charging - plus 1x USB 3.0 upstream port), a 3.5mm headphone jack and DC power input (external power brick) are present as well.

GIGABYTE AORUS to Introduce 10-bit, 144 Hz IPS FreeSync Monitor at CES 2019

GIGABYTE's gaming brand AORUS has been expanding its product portfolio to just about any piece of kit a PC gamer can and will buy.

Acer Releases Predator XR343CKP Monitor: 34" IPS, 3440 x 1440, FreeSync, 1 ms

Acer announced the release of another FreeSync monitor to their lineup. The Predator XR343CKP offers a 34", ultrawide, curved IPS panel with a 3440 x 1440 resolution. Being an IPS panel, the 1 ms response time (with MPRT, so, an added blur reduction mode is taken into account for this response time) is a premium specification. It features an up to 100 Hz refresh rate with FreeSync technology enabling variable refreshes without screen tearing.

The panel offers a typical 1,000:1 contrast ratio with a relatively low 350 cd/m² typical brightness, 172/178 viewing angles, 1.07 billion color depth and standard sRGB color gamut. Display Inputs include HDMI, DisplayPort, and 5x USB ports. All of this can be available for the modest amount of $1799... Which isn't at all the number I expected to be quitting based on the specs alone, and looking at other market offerings. But that's what's being shown on Acer's page - though some retailers, such as Amazon Germany, are offering this for some €893 (~$1000), which is much more realistic.

Philips Announces the 241B8QJEB Monitor: IPS, 1080p, Made of 85% Recycled Materials

Philips, via its MMD brand license partner, today announced the launch of the basic, cost-effective 241B8QJEB monitor. The 241B8QJEB is a no-frills, basic monitor for your office use, and would be ideal as a second or third monitor in a non-gaming environment - though of course it would also work for gaming on a budget, though there are many better options for that particular use case. The pricing of £159 goes hand in hand with the 1080p panel, which fogoes the cheaper TN type for the more image-quality-friendly IPS.

The Phlipos 241B8QJEB is an environment-friendly monitor, with 85% of the materials used in its construction being recycled, thus reducing its footprint in the environment. LowBlue Mode, Flicker-free, and the SmartErgoBase provide ease-of-use specs that can be taken advantage of by users. Connectors include VGA, DVI-D, DisplayPort 1.2, HDMI 1.4, and USB 3.0 Super Speed technology.

LG Announces the 32QK500-W 32" IPS Monitor - QHD, FreeSync, 8 ms

LG has announced another bang-for-buck entry in their monitor line-up, which is usually one of the best in the specs-pricing department. For the modest amount of $349, the 32QK500-W is a 31,5" affair with a QHD (2560*1440) resolution, which supports AMD's FreeSync technology for synchronized refresh rates and greater fluidity in gaming. There's an 8-bit + FRC IPS panel, with a minimum 250 cd/m² brightness (300 typical), which isn't much, but should be enough to be used in a not-too-bright room.

Of course, some of the panel's specifications do point towards the cost-cutting that needed to be done in order to get it to this price-point; the brightness isn't anything to go by (not even close), the FreeSync support tops out at a maximum of 75 Hz, and the 8 ms response time is enough for casual gaming, but not for cutthroat competitive gaming. Some LG technologies such as Black Stabilizer, Crosshairs, and Reading Mode are available. Output connectors stand at 2x HDMI, 1x DisplayPort, and 1x MiniDP, with an additional headphone jack. The monitor is VESA wall-mountable.
