I would consider the BenQ EW3270U as a big brother to the BenQ EW2770QZ 27″ 2K Monitor which I reviewed last year.
The BenQ EW2770QZ is a 27″ QHD (2560 x 1440) IPS monitor with built-in 2W stereo speakers. It has two HDMI 1.4 port, one DisplayPort 1.2 port, and a headphone jack.
The Dell UltraSharp InfinityEdge monitors are finally available in Singapore. I have been waiting for it since I heard of the products last month.
InfinityEdge monitors means they comes with an ultra-thin borders on all sides.
The Dell UltraSharp U3415W 34″ Curved Monitor has been available in Singapore since mid-December 2014 (I didn’t realised that) for S$1,499.
I personally think that the price is pretty reasonable since Dell’s high-end monitors are always about that range. In fact the U3415W is the cheapest of the high end Dell monitors. The Dell UltraSharp UP2715K 27″ Ultra HD 5K Monitor cost S$2,699 and the next in line is the Dell UltraSharp UP3214Q 32″ Monitor which cost S$2,259 and followed by the Dell UltraSharp U3014 30″ Monitor which will set you back S$1,749.
The Dell UltraSharp 27 Ultra HD 5K Monitor (UP2715K) will be available in Singapore next month (December 2014) for S$2,699.
In contrast, iMac with Retina 5K display starts at S$3,388.
The S2240L and S2340L monitors are virtually borderless, while the S2440L and S2740L monitors are almost frameless, with flushed edge-to-edge glass on a glossy screen.
Monitor is like a computer, once you upgrade, you will never look back. Few years ago, 17″ monitor is the norm, now is 24″ and in a few years time 27″/30″ will be the norm.
OS X Lion
Mac OS X Lion is finally released, it cost US$29.99 in the Mac App Store. I was downloading this at 11MB/s (megabytes not megabits) yesterday night! If you have a slower Internet connection, Lion will be made available on a USB thumb drive through the Apple Store (Singapore) for S$88. Mac OS X Lion is the eighth major release of Mac OS. It has more than 250 new features such as new Multi-Touch gestures, system-wide support for full screen apps, Mission Control, Mac App Store, Launchpad and a new re-designed Mail app.
When I first receive the LG Monitor W2486L with the box, the first impression it give me was it was very slim and light. The whole package including the box weights 6.6kg. When I unboxed the package and weight the monitor with its base, it weights only 4.6kg. I think my Dell 2408WFP weights twice of that and look at the size of the box compared to the W2486L’s box.
The attributes of it being slim and light is greatly due to the LED Technology that lights up the screen which gives it an excellent 2,000,000:1 Dynamic Digital Fine Contrast Ratio. Speaking of the screen display, the auto brightness control will automatic adjusting your screen brightness to match your surrounding room’s lightings.
