BenQ America Corp. today announced that its new GW Series of VA LED monitors, bringing groundbreaking VA LED visual sophistication to the home and office. GW Series panels bring out every hue from the brightest whites to the deepest blacks, with every detail flawlessly layered and contrasted, even in the most complex scenes. Featuring three models with a variety of sizes and connectivity options, monitors in the GW series boast a 5,000:1 ultra-high native contrast ratio, 8-bit color performance, wide-angle viewing, and LED backlighting.

The GW series includes the GW2250, GW2450, and GW2750HM VA LED monitors. All GW series panels feature D-Sub and DVI-D connectors and are offered in 21.5-inch, 24-inch, and 27-inch widescreen sizes respectively. Additionally, the GW2750HM is equipped with line-in connectors and headphone jacks, and is further bolstered with HDMI® connections. To complete the A/V experience without the hassle of connecting to additional audio devices, the GW2750HM adds built-in 2W speakers.

Monitors in the GW Series offer a 5,000:1 ultra-high native contrast ratio, which is five times that of general panels. This adds astonishing color depth and definition to darkened, complex images with the greatest subtlety and clarity. Offering true 8-bit color performance, the VA monitors render a total of 16.7 million color shades to deliver smoother and more stable transitions from one color to the next.

With naturally deeper blacks and minimized light leakage, the GW Series panels display flawlessly layered and precisely contrasted details in even the darkest images. In addition, VA monitors offer an ultra-wide viewing angle of 178 degrees/178 degrees, allowing for sharper details, higher contrast, and authentic colors to be viewed and shared by everyone from left, right, above, and below. The GW panels' LED backlighting provides lower power consumption than conventional CCFL monitors, while operation in Eco Mode provides even more energy savings.

"The expansion of our VA display lineup is a direct response to the rapidly growing demand for this level of performance in North America," said Lars Yoder, President at BenQ America Corp. "With our GW Series, we are offering our valued customers a wide array of choices for business and personal use, with numerous connectivity options and sizes ranging from 21.5 to 27 inches. In addition to providing unparalleled performance, our GW monitors offer an eye-catching design and a front bezel textured to sooth the eyes."

For effortless setup, each GW Series model is Microsoft® Windows® 7 certified. Users simply connect a monitor to a computer equipped with Windows 7, and the operating system will instantly recognize it. 

The GW Series monitors are available now at an MSRP of $219 for the GW2250, $249 for the GW2450, and $419 for the GW2750HM. More information is available at
