BenQ launches X-series LCDs for gamers

BenQ X-series LCDs

BenQ on Wednesday inaugurated the X series, its first complete line of LCD displays made just for gamers and others who demand fast response times. Aside from a checkered flag pattern at the base to reflect its gaming pedigree, the X is the first line to include two different gaming modes: an action mode adjusts the color and response for first-person shooters and most typical games, while a racing mode does the same for the typical camera views found in driving simulations.

The range-topping, 22-inch X2200W is also the first display to focus on a true measure of a display's speed that BenQ calls a Motion Picture Response Time. While most companies often focus on the less realistic gray-to-gray draw time for displays, the X2200W is quick for more dramatic black-to-white shifts in color; an average LCD takes a slow 20 milliseconds to change the pixel while the new display takes just 8, the company claims. The top screen is also more vivid than most competitors with 92 percent of the NTSC color gamut covered in a bright 1,000:1 contrast ratio.

Three smaller, quick displays also follow the 22-inch model into the market, including the 20-inch X2000W, the 19-inch X900W, and the 4:3 ratio X900. The two larger models support HDMI in addition to the DVI and VGA input common across all of the monitors. All models are due to ship this month, though only the X900W is intended to reach the US by the end of this year.
