BenQ ships two pivoting, high-contrast LCDs

updated 11:05 am EDT, Wed August 20, 2008

BenQ G2200WT and G2400WT

BenQ on Wednesday formally rolled out two G series desktop LCDs aimed at artists or others who want extremely adjustable displays. The 22-inch G2200WT and its 24-inch G2400WT sibling rotate 90 degrees for tall portrait resolutions but also travel as much as 5.1 inches upwards; the movement is twice as much as with similarly-adjustable displays and promises a near-ideal viewing angle. Either also spins sideways to show content to those nearby and tilts back and forward for unusually steep viewing angles.

Either display is characterized as vivid, with dynamic contrast ratios of 2,500:1 for the 22-inch panel and 4,000:1 for the 24-inch device. DVI and VGA provide video input on both but are complemented on the G2400WT by an HDMI input and a headphone jack for audio pass-through.

The two LCDs have so far only been announced for the UK, where they will ship this month at prices of 180 ($336) for the G2200WT and 318 ($594) for the G2400WT.
