BenQ Announces 27.9’’ 4K UHD For Australia

I love my new years resolution. This year it is BenQ bringing it with their new 4K UHD gaming monitor. I don’t think it is unfair to say that 4K includes ALL the pixels and all the resolution one could ever want. BenQ is known as one of the best producers of monitor panels. Together with Zowie, they have transformed the home and competitive gaming scene. They have proven time and time again that they are able to both discover and build exactly what gamers need.

They don’t do this by building a one size fits all solution, but instead crafting solutions that meet different player requirements; competitive PC gamers who play FPS games will want a monitor with high drawing speeds, those less competitive gamers might like more vibrant and crisper images, while the console audiences requirements are dictated by the best capability of their console of choice.

The BenQ EL2870U is a monitor that directly targets gamers in the last category. This new announcement is looking at producing an Ultra HD experience with response times and features that perfectly pair with the latest range of 4K consoles. Apart from a perfect desk size, great resolution and fast response time, it also looks at being a complete solution. By including a nice selection of different ports (DVI, 2x HDMI) and inbuilt speakers it will not only be suitable for console gaming, but for your regular PC setup. It is also packed with a lot of nifty tech including Brightness Intelligence Plus, Low Blue Light , AMD Freesync and HDR.

I am excited to put this little beast through its paces. In the meantime it will be available for $599 at lots of JB HI-FI stores across the country starting in February. You can find out more details on its website. The full press release is below.

Sydney, Australia 17th January, 2018 – BenQ, the internationally renowned provider of digital lifestyle devices, today introduces the BenQ EL2870U, our first 4K UHD monitor with 1ms response time designed specifically for Home Entertainment.

The BenQ EL2870U Home Entertainment Monitor features High Dynamic Range (HDR) technology to increase the overall dynamic range between true black and bright white to duplicate what your eyes see in the natural world.

Not only does the EL2870U pursue brilliant image performance, it also offers features dedicated to offer a premium 4K Gaming experience. The incredibly fast 1ms Gray-To-Gray (GTG) response time on the EL2870U ensures a much more responsive and fluent in-game experience than a traditional 4K Television, particularly noticeable in first person shooter games. AMD Freesync technology effectively eliminates image tearing, broken frames, and choppy gameplay for a smoother gaming experience for users with an AMD graphics card. By offering High-bandwidth Digital Content Protection (HDCP) 2.2 support, the EL2870U is BenQ’s premium choice monitor for 4K Gaming on the Xbox One X and PS4 Pro 4K Game consoles.

Enjoy expanded flexibility and superb HDR video quality from any source through the DisplayPort 1.4 & dual HDMI 2.0 portsIntegrated 2W(x2) speakers on the EL2870U allows you the freedom to watch or play content without the need for external speakers or headphones.

Complementing the viewing experience, BenQ’s exclusive Brightness Intelligence Plus (B.I.+) technology in the EL2870U detects ambient brightness and colour temperature to adjust display settings to deliver balanced brightness and colour temperature to match the environment. B.I.+ technology effectively adjusts the brightness of the monitor to avoid overexposure and enhance details in dark areas. Furthermore, the adjusted brightness and colour tone can reduce eye strain due to the harsh contract and increase productivity and eye comfort. The EL2870U also comes with BenQ’s Low Blue Light Technology, designed to filter out harmful blue light radiation, effectively diminishing eye fatigue and irritation. Easily switch to one of the four preset Low Blue Light modes from the on screen display to enjoy visual comfort while you work or play. The EL2870U also features flicker-free technology to prevent the harmful effects of monitor flickering, such as excess eye strain.

The EL2870U is a JB Hi-Fi exclusive monitor, and will be available in-store in 190 locations in early February.
