BenQ unveils Vista-approved LCD monitors

BenQ will launch three new LCD monitors later this year, two already certified for Vista, and a third it expects to certify

BenQ has unveiled some new flat-panel monitors that have been qualified to work with Microsoft's upcoming Windows Vista operating system.

Two of the monitors, due out in early December, have received Microsoft's Works with Windows Vista logo. A third, due out by the end of this month, is expected to be awarded Windows Vista Premium Certification, BenQ said.

The Works with Windows logo indicates that a product will work smoothly with Windows Vista, although it won't necessarily offer the full Vista experience. The premium certification indicates that a product will take advantage of all of Vista's new capabilities, which include a new graphical interface.

The Works with Vista products, called the FP93GX and FP93GS, were designed with video in mind. BenQ said it achieved a crisp moving-image quality by reducing response time across color scales.

The FP93GX is a 19-inch monitor with a 700:1 contrast ratio and 2 millisecond response time. It will be launched in the U.S., Europe and China in early December at a suggested retail price of US$299. The FP93GS is also 19 inches across but slightly less expensive, at US$260. It will be launched in Europe, Japan, and China in early December.

The third screen, expected to get the "premium" certification, is a 24-inch monitor called the FP241VW. It's set to hit stores in the U.S., Japan, China and Taiwan by the end of November at a suggested retail price of US$1,299.

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.
