BenQ Announces Zowie XL2536 e-Sports Gaming Monitor
Ron Perillo / 12 months ago
BenQ is announcing the alunch of the ZOWIE XL2536 monitor. It is essentially an upgrade to the XL2430 and comes with the Dynamic Accuracy (DyAc) feature. According to BenQ, Dynamic Accuracy helps with recoil and helps players see more clearly. Although according to talkytalk.co.uk who reviewed BenQ DyAcTM monitors, it is actually a backlight strobing effect which inserts a black image every other frame. It works because the human eye perceive motion and anticipate movement. A frame left on the screen for its full length followed by a full frame straightaway, the eyes and the brain blur the image automatically. With a black frame inserted in between, the length of time the image displayed on screen is reduced, and the brain interprets this as a smoother sharper image.
BenQ Zowie XL2536 Features
The most obvious feature on the XL2536 are the shields surrounding both sides. This apparently helps players stay focused on the game by minimizing distractions. It is not the same kind of shield used on color-sensitive monitors. It is rather more like a barn door on the side like on cameras. To keep black levels and brightness in check, the monitor has built-in Black eQualizer technology which automatically brightens dark scenes without over-exposure. This is useful for gaming so that the player sees what is going on all the time.
The 24.5-inch display supports full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 with a pixel pitch of 0.276mm. In terms of connectors, the XL2536 has DVI- DL , HDMI x2, DP1.2, headphone jack, and microphone jack. Since it is a gaming monitor, it uses a TN panel with a 1ms gray-to-gray response time.
