BenQ X2200W Gaming Monitor Hit With Delays After Factory Fire

“…a major fire that burned down the production factory where we were receiving these monitors from. However, they should be in stores by early June and we should have samples available for you by May 1.”

That’s the official word from BenQ. Thankfully the monitor is still coming but it will be delayed to around June.

I personally am really excited for this monitor as it has a 2ms response time and AMA technology that pretty much eliminates any kind of LCD tearing.

AMA increases voltage to speed up the time it takes liquid crystals to go from dark to bright and back again. With AMA, the X Series performs this cycle at a blistering 2ms GTG (Grey to Grey response time). It’s like pressing on the gas pedal to make images appear faster and give gamers what they want most: quick response.

Really incredible monitor technology that I recommend tech heads take a look at.

KORG DS-10 Synthesizer?!

I was just about to go to bed when I noticed that I had new RSS feed stuff from GAME Watch. AQ Interactive is releasing the KORG DS-10 Synthesizer in July. KORG is a very popular synthesizer and sequencer company. I grew up in a music store that had a pretty decent sized synth department, so when I saw the big KORG logo, I was immediately intrigued. Very much like a full sized keyboard, you can record tracks using different sounds and mix them all together with a built-in drum machine.

The touch screen is used to do things like input notes and change sound levels. There’s even online WiFi support for multiplayer. According to the official website, this product is being demonstrated at the Musikmesse in Germany this month, which is probably the world’s largest music trade show. And if you’re curious about how it sounds, the official site has a demo song. Pretty cool stuff.
