First 21.5″ LED (Not LCD) Display is From BenQ
BenQ recently announced the V2200 Eco and V2400 Eco, both LED displays, with the V2200 declared as the first in the 21.5″ category. So what’s the importance of changing the C to E in LCD? Well, compared to LCD technology, LED displays consume less power and last longer. The light-emitting diodes found on BenQ’s new displays are basically advanced tinier versions of those lights used to indicate on and off on your TV, remote control, and computer.
According to BenQ, the V2200 Eco and V2400 Eco feature 36% power savings, 14.6% less weight, and 21.2% less thickness compared to CCFL displays (those backlit by cold cathode lights, or practically any LCD display on the market) of “comparable screen size”.
No word on pricing or availability, just a vague of statement of a “worldwide rollout” sometime this month. The newer technology onboard these displays will most probably lead to more expensive prices though.
