Lenovo is preparing to release a pair of mini LED displays that are cheaper than current mini LED displays but don’t skimp on features. 4K USB-C monitors deliver up to 140W over USB-C, the highest power delivery specification we’ve seen for a monitor.
There’s the 27-inch ThinkVision P27pz-30 and the 31.5-inch P32pz-30. USB4.0 port The port supports up to 40 Gbps for data and video and up to 140 Gbps. USB-C displays with power delivery are popular with many types of users, including Mac users without HDMI or DisplayPort who are looking for a streamlined setup with an ultra-lightweight PC. like a screen Apple Studio-Display (up to 96 watts), HP E242d G4 (up to 100 watts) and first a Lenovo Mini-LED foreman ThinkVision Creator Extreme (up to 90W) It has enough juice to keep powerful, light and thin systems happy, but at 140W developers and the like might consider workstation-level systems.
Lenovo’s announcement states that each upcoming mini-LED display will be able to support two 4K displays in a row. The monitors also have a USB-C port that provides 15W power delivery to smaller devices like smartphones.
Port selection is limited to a pair of HDMI 2.1 ports, DisplayPort 1.4 in and out, four USB-A ports (3.2 Gen 2), and an RJ45 port.
Like the ThinkVision Creator Extreme, which Lenovo first launched in 2020, the P27pz-30 and P32pz-30 are IPS monitors, each with 1,152 dimming zones. This will allow for more detailed contrast levels and less blooming of white content on dark backgrounds than typical LCD-LED screens.
The upcoming displays claim a typical brightness of 600 nits, but are expected to reach up to 1,200 nits. They have DisplayHDR 1000 certification from VESA and also support HDR10 and HLG formats.
Color coverage is closest to most common color spaces. The 27-inch mini LED monitor claims 99 percent DCI-P3, 100 percent sRGB, 99 percent Adobe RGB, 100 percent BT.709 and 80.5 percent BT.2020. The 31.5-inch version has nearly the same color space but with 98 percent DCI-P3 coverage. The 4K display has a refresh rate of up to 60Hz.
Both monitors will be out in August. Lenovo expects a price of $1,599 for the 31.5-inch device. The price of the 27-inch screen will come later, the seller says, but it costs 1,699 euros in Europe. This is a significant price reduction over Lenovo’s ThinkVision Creator Extreme, which is currently in the works. 2.399 $.
Meanwhile, contrast values remain just behind the ThinkVision Creator Extreme’s claims (1000:1 vs 1100:1 respectively). Also, there is a distinctly new type of LCD LED panel to compete with the new mini LED displays: IPS is black. IPS Black debuted this year and claims twice the contrast of standard IPS screens, and supporting products look like stiff competition for the new mini-LED screens. For example, the size of 27 inches Dell UltraSharp U2723QE We recorded a deviation of 1873:1, while in ours we saw 1860:1 Dell UltraSharp U3223QZ Im Test. However, these Dell monitors fall far short of the sharp highlights that the Lenovo monitors’ 1,200-nit HDR capabilities claim to deliver.
Like other mini LED desktop monitors, the ThinkVision P27pz-30 and P32pz-30 appear to be attractive options for power users thanks to the potential improvement in picture quality over standard LCD monitors, but with lower prices and brightness limitations. OLED screen. With mini-LED backlighting, Lenovo’s new screens may be able to avoid the blooming effect that tends to plague LCD-LED screens.
Mini LED screens are expected to be cheaper than OLED screens, but they’ve been getting cheaper lately. A close competitor today ASUS ProArt PA32UCR-K Monitor This 32-inch mini LED screen has only 576 zones and supports a power output of up to 80W. It currently has an MSRP of $1499.
The new Lenovo Mini LED displays offer more dimming zones and power delivery at a comparable price. Lenovo expects a price of $1,599 for the 31.5-inch device. The price of the 27-inch screen will come later, the seller says, but it costs 1,699 euros in Europe.
we are happy Mini LED prices are falling throughout the year. with CES Technology Next month we’ll soon hear more about Mini LED’s availability for the new year.
