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.


Hey, right off the bat I want to make sure it's understood that this LCD isn't for resolution junkies, so don't be popping in here to whine about the fact that it's not 2560x1440. :p This LCD will be perfect for plenty of people who DON'T want to have to have all their web browsers zoomed to 125-150%, plus, don't forget folks, 1920x1080's gonna be around for a while; Blu-Ray still has yet to go mainstream.

Personally, as an owner of a tired 26" 720p TV which provides my entertainment on the couch (I've eschewed cable for almost two years now, thanks Hulu/Netflix/Stagevu!), this would be a great option for me given my small living quarters and my couches close proximity to the TV stand. :D

Most important about this display anyway is the Vertical Alignment Panel setup and the LED backlighting.

It's supposed to be available in January.
