PC peripherals maker BenQ has launched a new high-resolution, high-refresh rate LCD monitor release in Australia, the BenQ XL2411T.
The new 24-inch 16:9-aspect ratio monitor includes a new feature called GROM – Gaming Refresh rate Optimisation Management – which allows users to customise how the screen is displayed from screen size and resolution to refresh rate settings of 100, 120 or 144Hz. It also features a display mode option that switches the XL2411T between a number of screen sizes and aspect ratios - 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). The monitor also supports Nvidia’s 3D Vision 2 technology.
While the panel comes with 1ms response times, it’s only a TN panel. The vertical viewing angle is said to be only 160-degrees, so well down on most I-PS/VA monitors. However, the high-refresh rate will be a boon to those affected by slow 60Hz flicker, particularly over a long work day or night gaming session. It features DVI, VGA and HDMI inputs, along with a 3.5mm headphone socket.
There are no speakers or USB hub built-in. Brightness is rated at 350mcd with a native contrast ratio of 1,000:1. Power consumption is rated at 22-watts in normal operation with standby power said to be less than 500-milliwatts (500mW).
Like some of the more expensive Dell monitors, the XL2411T has a decent base stand that rotates horizontally +/-45-degrees, tilts back 20-degrees/forward 5-degrees. It will also swing around from landscape to portrait mode and there’s 130mm of height adjustment as well.
The monitor features 1920×1080-pixel resolution and will become available next week around Australia for $429.
