Q-Series monitors and ThinkVision S28u
When technology gets smarter, it blends into everyday life and brings balance to any home office, gaming and entertainment space. These two new Lenovo consumer monitors, with integrated multi-media audio via 2 x 3W speakers, have no equal. Both are certified to minimize eye fatigue by TÜV® Rhineland Eye Comfort standards and designed to provide seamless functionality with connected devices and a cinematic-quality experience, plus a touch of understated style. For PC gamers with AMD GPUs, eliminate image stuttering and screen tearing with Radeon FreeSync technology.
The ultra-slim Lenovo Q27q Monitor is the new premium 27-inch QHD crystal-clear In-Plane Switching (IPS) display that’s easy-to-use and near-edgeless on three sides. Ultra-slim for its size at 6.9mm (0.3in), it’s a modern take on an entertainment accent; its clever wedge base design and smart ergonomic features makes a definite style statement in nearly any space. Ideal for those who spend long hours on their monitors (e.g. small office or teleworkers, students with multiple device needs, graphic designers) who need an updated plug-and-play monitor that looks attractive with their décor and connects easily while providing visual clarity without causing physical strain.
The sleek Lenovo Q24i Monitor is the new stylish 24-inch FHD, near edgeless display with the amazing clarity of 1920×1080 pixels, endless viewing comfort with smart eye protection features, and new cleaner design—perfect for binging shows, playing the hottest games, or just tackling multiple projects at once. And at just 6.9mm (0.3inches), it’s truly ultra-slim.
Modern tech users who want a contemporary addition to their living room, home study, or even bedroom for late-night content streaming, will enjoy this sleek display with excellent image quality that’s a smart value in a gorgeous 23.8-inch package.
With hours spent in front of displays, user comfort is extremely important. Easily work all day on the Lenovo ThinkVision S28u-10 that’s TÜV Rheinland Eye Comfort Certified with flicker-free technology and reduced reflections. Eyestrain is minimized thanks to the natural low blue light solution engineered to reduce emission without compromising color accuracy, brightness, or power efficiency. Additionally, the quick-release tilt stand helps make the monitor flexible to use.
The ThinkVision S28u-10 offers a professional eye-catching display and enhanced connectivity with a comfortable user experience. Crystal-clear visuals on the 28-inch 4K UHD In-Plane Switching (IPS) panel means no detail is too small. Colors are vivid and bright with greater than 99 percent sRGB and 90 percent DCI-P3 color gamut providing nearly 1 billion colors for impeccable accuracy. The monitor has HDMI 2.0 and a DisplayPort 1.2 that provide improved connectivity required for modern businesses and a 100 x 100 mm VESA Mount makes the ThinkVision S28u-10 deployable in a variety of scenarios.
The 27-inch Lenovo Q27q monitor will start at US$299.99 and is expected to be available on September 2019. The 24-inch Lenovo Q24i monitor will start at US$189.99 and is expected to be available starting September 2019. The 28-inch Lenovo ThinkVision S28u monitor has no announced pricing and is expected to be available starting October 2019.
