BenQ's V2200 Eco is the world's first 21.5in LED monitor.

BenQ today launched the world's first 21.5in LED monitor, one of 49 new products from the company that will hit the market in Australia before the end of 2009.

At the launch at Bondi Beach, Sydney, BenQ unveiled the V2200 Eco — a 21.5in LED monitor featuring a 5,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, Full HD 1080p resolution and an HDMI input.

According to BenQ, the Eco range of monitors is manufactured using natural, recyclable materials, reducing the impact on the environment. "The Eco series monitors are green products, which minimise the bad effect on the ecosystem during manufacturing," said Chee Fui Chung of BenQ.

BenQ claims the V2200/V2400 Eco's packing materials have been reduced and that 80 per cent of the paper used is recycled, while the LED panel can reduce power consumption by up to 36 per cent compared to regular LCD monitors.

The other product of note launched today was the GP1 mini projector: a portable LED projector weighing 640g. The BenQ GP1 projector includes a USB reader, so it simply requires the connection of a USB flash drive or personal media player to display movies and photos. It also comes with a built-in 2W speaker.

BenQ also launched a number of mini notebooks, compact digital cameras and a range of projectors for education and home entertainment.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.

Wireless printing from my iPhone was also a handy feature, the whole experience was quick and seamless with no setup requirements - accessed through the default iOS printing menu options.

A smarter way to print for busy small business owners, combining speedy printing with scanning and copying, making it easier to produce high quality documents and images at a touch of a button.

I've had a multifunction printer in the office going on 10 years now. It was a neat bit of kit back in the day -- print, copy, scan, fax -- when printing over WiFi felt a bit like magic. It’s seen better days though and an upgrade’s well overdue. This HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 looks like it ticks all the same boxes: print, copy, scan, and fax. (Really? Does anyone fax anything any more? I guess it's good to know the facility’s there, just in case.) Printing over WiFi is more-or- less standard these days.

As a freelance writer who is always on the go, I like my technology to be both efficient and effective so I can do my job well. The HP OfficeJet Pro 8730 Inkjet Printer ticks all the boxes in terms of form factor, performance and user interface.

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.
