The new generation of computer monitors is reaching an impressive level of performance. The same as its price, very, very high in the high range. The new BenQ MOBIUZ EX480UZ is a confirmation of both aspects.
It is the first MOBIUZ series monitor with OLED panel from the Taiwanese firm, which in itself indicates a high level of performance and image quality above typical LCDs. It is focused for multimedia entertainment and games, both on PC and consoles.
The BenQ MOBIUZ EX480UZ offers a massive diagonal of 48 inches with native 4K resolution (3840 x 2160 pixels). A more classic format (16:9 aspect ratio) and very different from the ultra panoramic ones that are being used in a general way when large screen sizes are used.
The monitor achieves a refresh rate of 120hz and a response time of 0.1 millisecond, which is not bad for a 4K. It supports HDR10 and features AMD FreeSync Premium image synchronization technology for smooth, stutter-free gameplay. Its maximum brightness is 450 nits and its viewing angles are 178 degrees.
includes the function Black eQualizer that brings out all the details of the dark areas of the screen, in a level of tones, saturation and contrast outstanding of OLED panels. It supports 98% of the P3 color gamut and according to it, BenQ offers a lot of predefined usage modes, Cinema HDRi, Custom, Display P3, FPS, Game HDRi, HDR, M-Book, Racing game, RPG and sRGB . The manufacturer includes vision care technologies eye-carewith functions against annoying blue light, without flickering and with a brightness sensor adapted to the brightness.
The monitor is focused as a display center for all types of use and to attend to the multimedia section, it integrates a 2.1 audio system with two 5W speakers and a 10W subwoofer. It has height and tilt adjustment and a lot of ports: 2 HDMI 2.1, Display Port 1.4, and an up and down USB port hub, and a USB C for data, 90W of power and DisplayPort alternate mode.
In addition to the scenario mapping and the fast OSD, it includes a remote control which confirms its approach to multimedia and games, possible connecting both consoles and personal computers. The monitor is a pasote, certainly, but the worst comes from its cost that reaches the barrier of 2,000 euros. In retailers like Amazon its price rises to €2,264. Very high for a consumer monitor.
