This model has just been launched in India, and is touted as BenQ’s flashy little flagship, LED backlit Hanna Montana. It’s sleek, snazzy and fresh off the assembly line, so let’s check out what exactly is on offer.

Design and features
The piece, no doubt looks classy and suave, like it should be in a smooth talking diplomat’s office. There are are no sharp or cumber some corners or edges. Everything is curved in and finished in black gloss. The entire bezel is uniform in the gloss finish, and so is the stand. The shiny BenQ logo is embossed on bottom panel. The right end of this panel houses the touch sensitive power button, which lights up with a green LED around its circumference. Below it, located on the bottom face, are a row of buttons for controlling the monitor functions – these are not touch sensitive, but are good old push buttons.

The inputs on the smooth and bare back are clubbed neatly in a central window, namely one each of VGA, HDMI 1.3 and DVi-D ins, and the AC adapter input. There is also a 3.5 mm headphone out. This, according to us is enough for a monitor – I care more for visual performance. As for ergonomics, we have the typical joint of the bezel and stand, with a little wobbliness but not hazardous or weak in  any way. There is a tilt capability, but no swivel.

The rated Dynamic contrast is a ridiculously high 10,000,000:1, I SERIOUSLY think that’s a load of BS, as Dynamic contrast is anyways not a standardized measurement. But then BenQ has rated the proper native value in its specs as enumerated below:
