BenQ has unveiled its new GW2790QT and GW3290QT, 27-inch and 32-inch 2K QHD monitors.

Designed for hybrid work, the GW90 Series Eye-Care monitors come equipped with eyecare technology, an ergonomic design, USB-C data transfer, charging plus integrated USB-hub connection.

One special feature that comes from the previous GW85TC series is coding mode. This allows users to experience increased productivity when doing programming work thanks to visual aids by optimising the contrast and saturation of dark mode. With distinguishable shades of colour, coding mode can allow software developers to focus more on work and relieve eye strain in the workplace.

For Eye-Care, both the GW2790QT and GW3290QT come with TUV Rheinland-certified Flicker-Free and Low Blue Light Technologies and Brightness Intelligence Gen2, which adds customisable settings to auto optimisation of screen brightness. The colour weakness mode compensation and simulated e-paper reading mode are also easily navigated with BenQ Eye-CareU software for convenient and prolonged vision health protection.

Equipped with USB-C connection for data and video transmission and up to 65 watts of power delivery for charging laptops and phones, the GW2790QT and GW3290QT monitors provide an integrated USB hub and comprehensive HDMI, DisplayPort, USB, and audio ports for fast switching between peripherals and smart devices. Integrated Noise Filter Speakers and Noise Cancellation Microphone ensure crystal-clear remote conferencing for added versatility and productivity.

Desktop devices, their cables, and office materials can be neatly organised using the optional GC01 base cover kit, which comes with two base cover inserts: a light grey cover with grooves and niches for smartphones, cables, pens, and office paraphernalia, and a green studded platform for setting up fun building blocks and brick figures.
