Go big or go home, right? Not at BenQ's headquarters, where thin is definitely in. The PC peripheral maker this week launched a line of high-contrast (of the dynamic variety) monitors that BenQ's marketing peeps claim are the thinnest in the industry, measuring only 15mm (that's 0.59 inches for the anti-metrics folks) thick.
These will be part of the company's new V series comprised of nine models in all. Sizes range from 18.5 to 24 inches, with the first model to land on shelves the 21.5-inch V2200. The V2200 will boast a 160-degree viewing angle, 10,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, and 5ms response time.
Every model in the V series will come with both DVI and VGA connections, while several will ship with HDMI 1.3, a headphone jack, or an anti-glare panel.
No word yet on pricing, but you'll find out soon enough. BenQ says it will start shipping the new panels this month and next in Taiwan, with worldwide availability slated for June.
