BenQ GL Series LCDs Boast Crazy High Contrast Ratio (Dynamic Though)

Paul Lilly

BenQ this week announced the release of its GL series LED monitors, all of which feature a "truly prodigious" 12,000,000:1 contrast ratio. That number's dynamic, however, so take it with a healthy dose of salt.

The new displays include the GL930 (18.5 inches), GL931 (19 inches), GL2030 (20 inches), GL2230 (21.5 inches), and GL2231 (22 inches). BenQ says all GL models come in four different models with different connectors. These include:

  • GL (D-Sub; DVI-D)
  • GL/A (D-Sub)
  • GL/M (D-Sub; DVI-D; Line-In; Headphone Jack)
  • GL/AM (D-Sub; Line-In; Headphone Jack)

The GL/M and GL/AM models also come equipped with a pair of 1W speakers built-in, while all models sport a 5ms response time and BenQ's proprietary Senseye Human Vision Technology, which is an image enhancement engine that mimics the human eye by adjusting the color, clarity, and contrast of video, while also smoothing out quick images through motion optimization, BenQ says.

Look for these to ship next week. No word yet on pricing.
