BenQ declares the death of display bezel with new economical EW2750LZ

Multiple monitor systems have been commonplace for years at this point, with even graphics card makers like AMD touting their ‘Eyefinity’ ability to handle up to three from a single GPU. But gaming across multiple screens is often still problematic because of that plastic in between them — not so with the new BenQ EW2750LZ.

Although far from an ultra high-end, high-resolution, high-refresh display, this new economical LED BenQ monitor does have a number of impressive features, not least the fact that it has a minimalist edge-to-edge design, eliminating almost the entirety of the side-to-side bezel. It’s also 27 inches diagonally, and so provides plenty of screen space for movie watchers, gamers, and enterprise users.

Other aspects of its design that BenQ seems particularly proud of includes its low-blue-light features, which help reduce eye strain and fatigue over long periods of time. Flickering at all brightness levels has been reduced for a clearer picture and a new cinema mode is said to improve color quality throughout the spectrum.

BenQ also touts “enhanced resolution capabilities,” which are said to improve the appearance of online video, automatically boosting pixel density of original content sources to provide a better video experience — you can even create an on-screen focal point if you can’t fullscreen a video, eliminating all other distractions from the ‘picture.’

However BenQ also understands that we don’t live in a desktop-orientated world anymore. While it obviously wants to sell you a new desktop display, the EW2750ZL also comes with HDMI and mobile high-definition link inputs, letting you stream content from your smartphone, tablet, or any other external device. You can even use it without your PC being turned on.

The BenQ EW2750ZL is available now direct from BenQ or select retailers, priced at $210.

Although this display isn’t jam-packed with features, it is very cheap for a 1080P, 27-inch display. This would have cost well over a thousand dollars a decade ago, but do you prefer to spend a bit more when you buy yourself a new monitor?
