Lenovo is set to release a pair of Mini LED monitors that are cheaper than their current Mini LED offering, but don’t skimp on features. The 4K USB-C displays offer up to 140W of power over USB-C, which is the most extreme power delivery feature we’ve seen in a monitor claim.

Both the 27-inch ThinkVision P27pz-30 and the 31.5-inch P32pz-30 USB4 A port that supports up to 40Gbps data and video and up to 140W. USB-C monitors with power transfer are popular with many types of users, from Mac users without HDMI or DisplayPorts to Windows users looking for a simplified setup with an ultralight PC. monitors like Apple Studio Screen (up to 96 W), HP E242d G4 (up to 100 W) and Lenovo’s first Mini LED monitor, ThinkVision Creator Extreme (up to 90W), has enough juice to keep powerful thin-and-light systems happy, but at 140W creatives, etc. may consider workstation level systems.

Lenovo’s announcement says that each of its upcoming Mini LED monitors can support dual-chain 4K monitors. The monitors also have another USB-C port that offers a 15W power supply for smaller devices like smartphones.

The port selection is completed by a pair of HDMI 2.1 ports, a DisplayPort 1.4 input and output, four USB-A (3.2 Gen 2) ports and an RJ45 port.

Like the ThinkVision Creator Extreme Lenovo first introduced in 2020, the P27pz-30 and P32pz-30 are IPS monitors with 1152 dimmable zones each. This should provide more detailed contrast levels than your typical LCD-LED displays and less blooming when it comes to white content on dark backgrounds.

Upcoming displays claim a typical 600 nit brightness, but claim to reach 1200 nits. They are VESA’s DisplayHDR 1000 certified and also support HDR10 and HLG formats.

Color coverage is close to the maximum for most common color spaces. The 27-inch Mini LED 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 roughly the same color gamut, but with 98 percent DCI-P3 coverage. The refresh rate for 4K screens is up to 60 Hz.

Both monitors come out in August. Lenovo said it expects the 31.5-inch model to cost $1,599. The seller said that the price of the 27-inch monitor will come later, but it will cost 1,699 euros in Europe. That’s a significant price drop from Lenovo’s currently-expected ThinkVision Creator Extreme 2399 dollars.

Mini LED monitors also have a light sensor, so they can adjust brightness based on ambient lighting.

Contrast levels, however, are slightly lower than ThinkVision Creator Extreme claims (1000:1 and 1100:1 each). Plus, the new Mini LED monitors have a new high-end LCD-LED panel to compete with: IPS Black. Debuting this year, IPS Black claims up to twice the contrast of standard IPS monitors, and the supporting products look like strong competition to the new Mini LED displays. For example, a 27-inch Dell UltraSharp U2723QE We recorded a contrast of 1,873:1, whereas we saw a contrast of 1,860:1. Dell UltraSharp U3223QZ review. However, these Dell monitors are far from reaching the strengths offered by the Lenovo monitors’ 1200 nit HDR capability.

Like other Mini LED desktop monitors, the ThinkVision P27pz-30 and P32pz-30 appear to be interesting options for power users looking for a potential boost in image quality over typical LCD displays, but with less intense price and brightness limitations. OLED monitors. With mini LED backlighting, Lenovo’s new displays can also avoid the blooming effect that plagues LCD-LED screens.

Mini LED monitors are expected to be cheaper than OLEDs, but recently they have been getting cheaper. Today’s close competitor, Asus ProArt Display PA32UCR-K The 32-inch Mini LED monitor has only 576 zones and supports up to 80 W power transmission. It currently has an MSRP of $1499.

Lenovo’s new Mini LED monitors offer more dimming zones and power supplies at similar prices. Lenovo said it expects the 31.5-inch model to cost $1,599. The seller said that the price of the 27-inch monitor will come later, but it will cost 1,699 euros in Europe.

We were waiting Mini LED prices drop the whole year. With CES technology exhibition next month, we may soon learn about more Mini LED availability for the new year.
