TAIPEI, TAIWAN, January 16, 2011 – An internationally renowned provider of digital lifestyle innovations and LED monitor expert, BenQ announced the expansion of its world-renowned RL Series professional gaming monitors with the launch of the RL2450HT. The RL Series was co-developed by ZOWIE GEAR, an innovative manufacturer of high-end professional gaming gears, along with STARTALE, a world-class StarCraft 2 professional gaming team sponsored by BenQ since 2011, and has received international recognition for its outstanding design, capability and performance. Building on the award-winning heritage of the RL Series and BenQ’s unique philosophy of “Gaming Is in the Details”, the new addition targets top-level RTS gamers who are looking for added viewing flexibility and comfort on top of unprecedented level of control, accuracy and enjoyment. The RL2450HT features 24”W 16:9 Full HD LED screen with 2ms GtG response time, Black eQualizer, RTS Gaming Mode, Display Mode and Smart Scaling and can accommodate various viewing height and angle thanks to the Height Adjustment Stand (HAS) design.


“We’re pleased to announce that the new RL2450HT is already generating a lot of excitement in the professional gaming community,” said Peter Chen, EVP and General Manager of BenQ Technology Product Center. “We also have great news to share about the RL2240H – our very first RL Series model which has been a tremendous success in Germany, Northern Europe and Russia since it was first launched last October. It has received recognitions from all around the world, making the list as “The Best Monitor Display” on the 2011 China Sina Digital Online Award Contest and outshining seven other monitor displays as the “Best Quality and Price Product” on Computer Hoy, Spain’s most influential magazine. The RL2240H also received great reviews for its excellent picture performances for RTS gaming on Debreprogramy, Poland’s largest software and information technology site. We are also expecting to hear more positive feedbacks from the Asia Pacific region and Japan.”


The upgraded RL2450HT professional gaming monitor is truly BenQ’s most timely response to gamers’ anticipation and enthusiastic demands for more viewing comfort and flexibility. It has everything the RL2240H has to offer – plus a big 24”W 16:9 Full HD LED display and a height-adjustable stand. Their shared features include:
  • Black eQualizer: This exclusively designed color engine technology reveals critical combat details with improved visibility in darkened areas. Gamers can adjust the screen brightness without over-exposing white levels and in turn screen critical combat details speedily with added gameplay comfort.
  • RTS Mode: This out-of-box preset mode, like Black eQualizer, is another feature that is co-developed by STARTALE players. It tailors the monitor calibration accordingly to optimize the display setting for RTS gaming convenience and ease.
  • Display Mode: Created to accommodate individual viewing preferences, the Display Mode allows gamers to interchange between seven screen sizes from 17" (4:3), 19" (4:3), 19"W (16:10), 21.5"W (16:9), 22"W (16:10), 23"W (16:9) to 24"W (16:9).
  • Smart Scaling: This unique feature complements the Display Mode perfectly, allowing gamers to manually scale the screen to any custom size.
  • Signature Black-and Red Design: The RL2450HT has inherited the same classic black-and-red housing as the XL2420T, BenQ flagship professional gaming model. However, it does come in a red-and-white design for those favoring a more sophisticated look and feel.


The collaboration with ZOWIE GEAR and the STARTALE players offered BenQ’s elite R&D team insider perspectives on details that were essential to winning the game, particularly the ability to acquire, assess and respond to information quickly. Together, they brought to life BenQ’s design philosophy of “Gaming Is in the Detail”. Now with the increased screen size and the height adjustment design, BenQ turns competitive gaming into hours of enjoyment and total success. You can look for the RL2450HT in the upcoming IEM World Championship where it will be presented to the world with BenQ’s full lineup of professional gaming monitors.

Available for purchase now in Europe, the RL2450HT will be heading to North America, China, Asia Pacific and Taiwan soon. For more information, please visit www.BenQ.com and gaming.benq.com

Now on its sixth year, Domination is the biggest single-day local gaming event wherein gamers and enthusiasts come together to celebrate the joy of gaming life through a day full of gaming tournaments, fun offline activities, and exhilarating stage performances from cosplayers and a number of the country’s best bands.


According to IP e-Games chief operating officer Heidi Mendita-Garayblas, Domination serves as a venue for IP e-Games to thank its loyal gamers for their continued support and enthusiasm for its top gaming massively multiplayer online role-playing game (MMORPG) titles RAN Online and CABAL Online, online first person shooter Point Blank and online casual games Audition Dance Battle, and Bandmaster.




Big tournament finals did happened in Domination 6. It set and concluded the yearlong RAN Online Matira Matibay Tournament, CABAL 3v3 Carnage National Tournament, Point Blank Mega Bakbakan, Audition Dance Battle Master of Eight Keys, and Bandmaster SOS Bagsakan.


The winners of the Point Blank Mega Bakbakan tournament not only get the top prize, but also earned the enviable task of representing the country in the Point Blank International Competition, one of the most prestigious gaming tournaments, this May 2012.


Domination 6 was also the landmark gaming celebration for Level Up! Inc. as they joined in the festivities. With the completion of the merger of IP e-Games and Level Up! Inc., last March 30, this gaming event was the launch pad for the combined gaming activities of both online publishers.

HTC One Experience

ads here too


Few weeks ago, it was the hype of the prelaunching of HTCs newest model its the HTC One Family. Included here is the HTC One X and One V, both are launched locally. As most of the gadget lovers are now eyeing for this new smartphone, I was one of those lucky first people to have the experience of feeling and clicking through the features of these great phones.


The HTC One Family is true to its slogan “amazing camera. authentic sound.” Yes, HTC have managed to integrate the mastery of light and sound in just one phone. It makes it a truly smart phone to have. This will for sure entice amateur videographers and photographers to get into the world of visual arts.



I will go through some of the specific details of the specifications according to what I have understand, heard, and seen though the presentation but I will just lay it in a more understable manner for everyone to enjoy and learn about this newest model from HTC.

Features that I truly like about HTC One

  • Master of Light with its Smart Flash which have better result than the usual pictures that we have.
  • High Speed Shooting with 0.7s of activation, 0.2s of focus/shot, and 4 frames per second which allows continuous shooting up to 99 shots.
  • Video Pic Experience which gives the videographer the possibility to take snapshots while recording a video.
  • HTC Music Center which holds a variety of music sources like the local music, internet radio, music store and sound hound.
  • Unrivaled quadcore performance with a 5th battery-saving companion core.
  • Unparalleled design and quality with its durable gorilla glass and polycarbonate material.
  • True to life display.
  • Seamless integration.




Judging from the looks of the HTC One X I believed it cost around Php34,000.00+ while the HTC One V which is the beginners version of HTC One which I believed costs around to Php16,000.00+. Even though the prize is that high we all know that it will surely last but of course it depends on how you use and how you care for it.


So will I get this kind of smart phone? Well, I would definitely say yes but of course there are still some factors to be considered at my end.


For those who loves taking pictures and enjoys recording videos, this smart phone is sure a gadget to have. You'll definitely enjoy capture moments with it.

Sony Ericsson Is Now Sony

ads here too


Though I have heard the rumor before that Sony Ericsson will be change into Sony, I'm still curious why?  One of my speculation was that they wanted to make Sony a solid brand that's why they are making some changes within the company.

Yesterday I did received an email from Sony Mobile regarding the change and they were informing their consumers about the changes in ownership of the company but the warranty will not be affected.

So Sony Ericsson Mobile Communications is now fully owned by Sony Mobile Communciations!
