“BenQ is proud to have our R&D into producing digital lifestyle solutions promoting better health while bringing better visual enjoyment to our customers,” Manish Bakshi, Managing Director, BenQ Middle East said. “BenQ effectively eliminated flickering at all brightness levels by replacing the conventional Pulse Width Modulation LED backlight that makes GW2760HS easier on the eyes when a computer is used for extended periods

“It has been proven that flicker-free technology reduces eye fatigue and this emerging technology is certain to provide a health benefit to all people who spend long hours using conventional LED monitors,” Bakshi added.

The flicker-free technology benefits not only computer screens but also smartphones, PDAs, televisions and all digital panels. Bakshi furthered, “Though the technology is still new, there is no great expense added to the overall purchase price of the screen so upgrading to this new computer monitor for the sake of health doesn’t come at a great cost.”
