Prevent Eye Strain with BenQ

Everyone today owns a personal computer or a smartphone. On average, we spend at least 10 hours a day staring at screens of various sizes! With screen time on trains, in our offices and back at home, we need to take extra care of our eyes and prevent eye strain.  In the next few minutes, let us embark on a journey on how we can prevent eye strain with BenQ monitors.

Growing up, screen care and office ergonomics was the least of our considerations. However, with age catching up,  most of us have started paying attention to our postures and enhancing the ergonomics of our workplace environment. Our family takes the ergonomics issue really seriously, as my wife had a slip disc near her neck area, as she was spending too much time looking at her “screens”.

Therefore, in order to get the right office ergonomics with your notebook, one actually needs to raise one’s notebook or work with a good external monitor. Hence, I was really excited to check out BenQ’s 27 inch Full HD HDR Video Monitor (EW277HDR) for myself.

BENQ HDR Monitor

Standing slim at 27 inch, I was excited at unboxing my new piece of technology. With the nice wide screen, my kids initially thought we had a new TV set. I had to burst their bubble and tell them that it was not a television set, but it was something just as useful! This 27 inch was going to be their media centre when they watched their favorite YouTube videos and other online entertainment programs.

These days monitors are more sophisicated and rather than just providing colored visuals, as these monitors come with HDR.

What is HDR?

For parents like myself, who have not caught up  with the latest tech terms … HDR is a display technology that makes videos more life-like.  HDR monitors do not offer more pixels, but they offer higher quality pixels. This means that the dots that compose the pictures offer better contrast, greater brightness and have a wider color space than non HDR models. In summary, the pictures just look more real!

Just check out the pictures of Batman below:

The Non HDR monitor just shows a normal black armor for Batman. In the second picture, you will realize that the armor has more details. Same contrast can be seen in the second sample, as her face is brighter. HDR offers better quality pixels.

HDR offers greater contrast and brightness. Imagine the details that you will see, when you plug in your X-Box and other entertainment mediums.

Prevent Eye Strain

The best feature about the  BenQ’s 27inch HD HDR Video Monitor (EW277HDR) is that it has eye care features that look after the eye health of users.

Research has shown that blue light from computer screens can lead to digital eyestrain, which will lead to irritated eyes and difficulty focusing. Continued exposure over time will also cause damaged retinal cells and eventually age related mascular degeneration.  It is no wonder that the latest mobile devices come with blue light filter options.

Users of BenQ’s HD HDR Video Monitor, can switch to the various blue light filter modes to lower eye fatigue . If you are always surfing the web, you can switch to web-surfing mode. For office minions like me who spend long hours on the screen, I switch my screen to office mode.

Being a Smart monitor with eye car intelligence, no one likes to fiddle with the controls after you have bought a product. The benefits of the Brightness Intelligence Plus Technology is that it detects the brightness around the environment and adjusts display settings.
