World's Thinnest BenQ V2220 LCD Lays On The BS Pretty Thick

On one hand the BenQ V2220/V2220H is a 21.5-inch LCD monitor that manages to be the thinnest in its class (just 15mm). On the other, BenQ has taken the whole "dynamic contrast ratio" fib to a whole new level.

They claim a 10,000,000:1 DCR with their edge-lit LED technology.

(Keep in mind, the human eye can only see somewhere between 50,000:1 and 100,000:1... meaning that you can't even prove BenQ wrong!) But we know the claim is particularly ridiculous, as the static contrast ratio is an absurdly typical 1000:1.

Still, the marketing doesn't mean you should write off BenQ's latest 'V' LCD line completely. In sizes ranging from 18.5 inches to 24 inches, with inputs including DVI, D-Sub and HDMI (on 'H' designated models), Taiwan will receive the new monitors this month for an undisclosed price. Then you'll be able to score them internationally at a later date. [BenQ via FarEastGizmos]
