BenQ’s new VW30 Series of vertical alignment (VA) LED monitors are designed to match Apple computers. BenQ’s white, asymmetrical VW2230H and VW2430H monitors do have a pretty sleek, simple look and are 21.5-inch and 24-inch displays, respectively. One interesting feature is a so-called Reading Mod where BenQ says the monitors will adjust their settings automatically to simulate the warmth of reading paper.
The LED-backlit displays both offer an HDMI 1.4 input, a VGA port and DVI-D connections. BenQ says the displays need 50 percent less power than the company’s previous generation of CFL monitors. The Eco Mode regulates backlight brightness, based on ambient light, using 37 percent less power in normal low lighting and then goes down 44 percent at night or in darker environments. The displays are mercury-free, plus use BFR/PVC-free casing plastics and eco-friendly ink on its packaging.
The VW2230H and VW2430H are will ship in November and are $179 and $249, respectively.
