If you're looking for a new projector that works well and offers a high level of features, you'll most likely be pleased with the BenQ MP624 DLP Projector. In fact, the manufacturer went to great lengths to seriously cut down operation noise, making for a quiet experience and allowing the attention to be placed on the videos.
As multimedia playback becomes a standard feature for PC user, more and more monitors has started to equip with a native resolution of 16:9 LCD panel. Movie lovers will love it as it gets full estate of horizontal pixels widescreen display without the top and bottom bars (for a 16:9 aspect ratio movie). We’ve seen it with Dell first 16:9-panel S2209W, now is BenQ turn with M2400HD - a 24-inch LCD monitor with 1920x1080 full HD resolution monitor launched at everywhere except US.
The BenQ Joybook Lite U101 was first announced last month, and at the time it looked like another case of netbook-by-numbers. It's only just now launched in Hong Kong, and according to these BenQ slides we may have missed a couple of distinctive features (as long as you remember that, in netbooks, "distinctive" can mean as little as an extra memory card supported). The screen is the key difference, being true 16:9 aspect rather than the more typical 16:10.

As promised after last week's unboxing gallery, we're starting to see the first reviews of BenQ's S6 Mobile Internet Device come through from its new Italian owners. UMPC Portal have adopted one particular Italian called Alberto, who has been giving his thoughts on how the S6 holds up as an internet device, an ebook reader and a media player.
After months MIA, BenQ's S6 MID is finally in the hands of buyers - namely those in Italy who can buy them from carrier TIM. The €429 ($626) touchscreen device is being sold there without a contract, although TIM do provide a SIM in case you want to activate the S6's 3G HSDPA connection, and the first hands-on images are starting to filter out.
We’ve seen Benq slimmest 8MP digicam DSC-X800 early this year, they has snuck in another slim digital compact onto its global site. Claiming world’s slimmest 3-inch LCD screen compact with a 10 megapixel Son’y 1 / 2.3-inch CCD sensor; the 16.8mm thick E1050 covers a range of 35.5mm-106.5mm (35mm equiv.) with 3x optical zoom lens and offering web sharing mode for online digital multimedia content. Image storage is taken care of by SD cards or the 10MB internal memory. Metallic gray is the only choice of color with Price and availability to be announced later.
Next on the netbook hit-parade is BenQ's Joybook Lite U101. As has become increasingly common, the specs of the U101 are more of the netbook-by-numbers generic fare: a 1.6GHz Atom N270 processor, 1GB of RAM and a 10.1-inch 1024 x 600 display, together with an 8.9-inch version.
BenQ's Mobile Internet Device (MID) has been hawked around tradeshows for almost a year now, with its official announcement taking place at CES 2008. BenQ has suggested the compact touchscreen device would launch in Europe this quarter, and seemingly put together a new press photo that BusinessWeek have included as part of their IDEA Award Winners 2008 feature.
BenQ have announced what they're calling the "world's slimmest 8-megapixel camera", the T850. Featuring 1600 ISO, a 3x optical zoom and smc PENTAX lens, the T850 measures in at just 14.9mm deep, with a stainless steel body available in either red or black. BenQ have obviously been looking to the latest cellphones for their UI, as the 3-inch touchscreen responds to gestures such as tap, circle and swipe.
The more specs we get the more I think this might be an Asus Eee shrunken down to fit in an MID package. It has an 800 MHz Silverthorne processor, Poulsbo chipset, half a gig of RAM, and a 4GB SSD.
