BenQ announces ridiculously slim LED monitors

BenQ has introduced what it claims are the slimmest LCD monitors in the world.

BenQ has introduced what it claims are the slimmest LCD monitors in the world. The new super-slim LED-backlit monitors--marketed as part of the V Series--measure a mere 15mm (0.59in) thick, and will come in 22- and 24-inch variations.

LED backlight technology is more energy efficient than CCFL backlight technology most commonly used with LCDs, and can allow for thinner screens. LED backlighting also lasts longer on average than equivalent CCFL backlighting.

Aside from its slender design, BenQ claims in its press release that these new monitors are energy efficient and will have a dynamic contrast ratio of 10,000,000:1. It's important to note that contrast ratios aren't measured in a consistent manner across manufacturers, so don't rely on them as a measure of display quality. Instead, use your own eyes to gauge.

Both also feature full 1080p (1920-by-1080 pixels) resolution and HDMI input.

The two monitors are expected to ship in June in the US. The 24-inch model will cost US$300, and the 22-inch model (actually 21.5 inches) will go for $250. For more information, see BenQ's Website.

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.

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.
