CES 2015: Ben Q


When I first heard of BenQ, it was around the time they started releasing competitive monitors for competitive gaming. For years they were sponsoring tournaments like MLG and locals like Super Arcade with high-performance monitors that had very little lag. This made them a top competitor. During CES 2015, they showed just what else they had in store for this year.

We started off with the different lines of monitors they were releasing. BenQ has different monitors to fit your needs, from console gaming to PC gaming. (It even had photography monitors.) We got a chance to see both the XL2730T and RL2755HM monitors that were made for first-person shooters, as well as the Hybrid XL2420G which uses NVIDIA’s G-SYNC technology, showing they have something for you no matter what type of gamer you are.

BenQ’s Black eQualizer, Motion Blur Reduction 2.0, Auto Game, and Game to Go Modes offer perfect colors and high refresh rates, so players see and feel no lag at all. BenQ was also showing off a new 4K professional monitor for engineering, design, and 3D-printing specialists, since accuracy and precision are important for projects.


For someone looking for a different type of home theater, BenQ also features a different variety of projectors that can be used at home or at work. BenQ showed off their HT1075 and HT1085ST Home Theater Projectors, which offer 3D-ready 1080p video quality by combining the magic of over 1 billion colors. Users can easily play any movies and games with ease from their connected devices, and use the Mobile High-definition Link to stream or mirror their content from their smartphones or other devices. With 2,200 ANSI lumens of brightness and a 10,000:1 contrast ratio, users will easily be able to enjoy whatever they are watching from wherever they set it up.


Finally we came into Ben Q’s treVolo Electrostatic Bluetooth Speaker. For the full effect we were placed in a small sound proof room where we got a full demo of the treVolo Electrostatic Bluetooth Speaker. The Speaker can run for 12 hours on a single charge, focusing on the hi’s and lo’s of your music to give audiophiles a crisp sound when listening to their music. We listened to quite a few songs from classical to hard rock and could hear every instrument and beat. While not heavily focused on the bass, you can easily enjoy music anywhere you place the device.

The treVolo Electrostatic Bluetooth Speaker is easy to store as the speakers collapse to the side of the system, allowing you to move it around easily when not in use. It can connect to any Bluetooth device as well.
