Europe Receives BenQ's EW2420 LCD

BenQ released a great many displays over the years, some better than others, and one of the apparently higher-end ones has now made its way to Europe, where it is ready to impress with its high contrast and wide viewing angles.

Those that keep track of such things may know that, some time ago, BenQ completed the development of the EW2420 liquid crystal display.

This monitor focuses on optimizing visibility by combining the advantages of a VA panel (vertical alignment panel) and LED backlighting.

As one knows, LED backlights are both effective and quite power efficient, which is why CCFL (cold cathode fluorescent lights) have become less and less used.

The product that BenQ has now sent to Europe is a 24-inch liquid crystal display (LCD) monitor that measures 439.7 x 581.9 x 179, weighs 6 kg and has a native resolution of, as one would expect, 1,920 x 1,080 pixels, or Full HD.

This resolution is complemented by a brightness of 250 cd/m2 and, more importantly, very wide viewing angles of 178 degrees both horizontal and vertical.

The response time of the product is of 8ms GTG (Gray to Gray), but the real advantage lies in the contrast ratio, the dynamic contrast ratio that is, of 20,000,000:1.

Other specifications include a pair of built-in 1.5W speakers, a maximum power consumption of 53W and multiple video inputs, namely D-Sub, DVI and a pair of HDMI 1.3 ports.

Predictably, the Senseye 3 technology is present and the power draw is supposedly of under 1W while in power saving mode.

Those interested in acquiring one such display need only be willing to part with the sum of £162.75, which is the equivalent of 186.43 Euro.

Finally, all the information available on the product is available on the official product page that BenQ has set up on its website.
