BenQ outs LCDs with 12,000,000:1 contrast

updated 04:55 pm EDT, Thu April 15, 2010

BenQ GL family of LED LCDs have 12m:1 contrasts

BenQ this week unveiled its GL series of LED-backlit monitors with the 18.5-inch GL930, 19-inch GL931, 20-inch GL2030, 21.5-inch GL2230 and 22-inch GL2231. Each has what BenQ is calling the industry's highest 12,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, along with a 5ms response time. BenQ also spent some time and resources designing the GL monitors to be attractive, with a bubble pattern in the decorative trim below the screen bezel that carries on on the backside on the ventilation grille.

The monitors can be had with different connections, including VGA-only as well as models with DVI and audio input. Those with the audio connections also include two built-in 1W speakers.

The GL2030 models will ship globally in mid-April, while the others are due to arrive in July. No prices have been announced.

    I think the word you are looking for is "announces" or "releases."

    contrast ratios

    I think it becomes just a marketing tool when contrast ratios reach such a high level the human eye can no longer detect it. Much monitors with "billions" of color.

    I have been asking both MacNN and Electonista to stop using "outs" to mean any of the two dozen other appropriate words. As a transitive verb like they are using it--

    [ trans. ] informal reveal the homøsexuality of (a prominent person).

    So, they are saying companies are revealing their products are ga¥.

    Apparently, professionalism takes a back seat on this one.
