Benq shows off prototype LCD TVs

Benq Corp. is gearing up for entry into the LCD (liquid crystal display) TV market later this year, displaying two prototype TV sets at the Computex Taipei 2002 exhibition.

The Taipei company had two models on display at its booth here, a 15-inch model and a 20-inch model. The 15-inch model offers a 400:1 contrast ratio and brightness of 450 candelas per square meter. The prototype set weighed 6 kilograms and offered compatibility with HDTV (High-Definition TV) and support for SRS Surround Sound.

The 20-inch prototype offered a slightly better contrast ratio of 500:1 and brightness of 500 candelas per square meter. Weighing 10 kilograms, the set also supports HDTV and SRS Surround Sound.

Benq plans to begin shipping LCD TV sets in August or September, said Greg Lin, a marketing specialist at the company's Digital Display unit. Pricing has not yet been finalized, he said.

Computex runs through Friday, June 7.

Ultimately this laptop has achieved everything I would hope for in a laptop for work, while fitting that into a form factor and weight that is remarkable.

This smart laptop was enjoyable to use and great to work on – creating content was super simple.

It really doesn’t get more “gaming laptop” than this.

Jack Jeffries


As the Maserati or BMW of laptops, it would fit perfectly in the hands of a professional needing firepower under the hood, sophistication and class on the surface, and gaming prowess (sports mode if you will) in between.

Taylor Carr


The MSI PS63 is an amazing laptop and I would definitely consider buying one in the future.

This small mobile printer is exactly what I need for invoicing and other jobs such as sending fellow tradesman details or step-by-step instructions that I can easily print off from my phone or the Web.
