Andy Ruffell / 5 years ago
The Taiwanese manufacturer BenQ has just announced two new models of monitors aimed at the gamers, more specifically the FPS gamers; the XL2420T and the XL2420TX.
Both 24” LED-backlit with a resolution of 1920×1080, they support Nvidia’s latest 3D Vision 2 technology on a 120Hz refresh rate and a response time of 2ms on gray-to-gray. As for the brightness and contrast, they both feature 350 cd/m2 and 1,000:1 respectively.
As you can see, they both feature some great specs for gaming, the stand is also worth noting, with a great design as well as the usual height, horizontal and vertical adjustment features.
Moreover, BenQ’s own eQualizer colour engine technology is incorporated to brighten up the dark areas without over-exposing the rest of the screen.
Along the Display mode is the Smart Scaling function that will enable the user to change their monitor view from 17″ (4:3), 19″ (4:3), 19″W (16:9), 21.5″ (16:9), 22″W (16:10), 23″W (16:9) to 24″W (16:9), as well as two special FPS modes tuned specifically for Counter-Strike 1.6 and Counter-Strike Source. Additionally, the user can change the FPS modes for different games through the Game Mode Loader, an online service for storing game presets.
Included with both models is the company’s S-switch remote control that allows the user to change the display settings and modes. Only difference between the XL2420T and the XL2420TX is that the X version comes incorporated with the IR receiver and a pair of 3D glasses.
Neither the price, nor the release date have been announced, but pre-order prices have been seen to reach as low as €314 (around $430 or £270) for the XL2420T.
