BenQ X2200W for hardcore gamers coming at the end of January

The first monitor for hardcore gamers with Simulated Pulsed Driving (SPD) is to come to the market at the end of January. The 22-inch BenQ X2200W comes with technology that simulates an impulse backlight, in that a black image is inserted after each image displayed ("Black Frame Insertion").
This should eliminate Sampling & Hold Effect, the motion blur which arises in the human eye with conventional LCD monitors. The use of overdrive and the resultant 2ms response time make the BenQ X2200W a hot candidate for the next LAN party.
The TN panel used, with a resolution of 1,680 x 1,050, has a contrast ratio of 1,000:1 and offers maximum brightness of 300cd/m². According to the manufacturers, the viewing angles are 170 degrees horizontally and 160 degrees vertically.

The features of the X series models, which have the BenQ chequered flag on their bases, include an analogue D-Sub and a digital HDMI input. In addition, the X2200W covers 92 percent of the visible colour space.
Despite sparing ergonomics features, gamers will have to spend a little more on the pure gamer monitor with SPD technology than they would on a standard 22-inch model: the recommended retail price for the monitor is € 399.00 including a three-year guarantee and a pickup service.
