This 1080p gaming monitor from BenQ has it all: a 31.5-inch display with 1800R curvature, a high refresh rate of 144Hz and a VA panel that boasts high contrast, good colour accuracy and decent viewing angles too. It’s not the highest resolution panel in the world, but that makes it a lot easier to hit its high refresh rate. It’s a strong set of specs, but how does it perform in the real world? Let’s put it to the test!Design
The EX3200R is a stylish monitor with medium-size bezels and a noticeably curved display. The curvature provides a more immersive experience, fitting the screen more easily into your peripheral vision, and in turn making it a [...]
How does BenQ’s entry-level 144Hz monitor stand up against the competition? Let’s take a look.Design
The XL2411 has a slightly asymmetric design, with a chunkier bezel on the bottom right corner which houses the downward-facing buttons for the on-screen display. Apart from this, the bezels are of moderate thickness on all four sides, making this monitor less than ideal for multi-monitor setups. The lips around the screen are apparently specially designed to minimise distractions caused by reflections, although we couldn’t notice any specific difference in a blind trial.
The monitor is constructed from black matte plastic, with none of the red accents [...]
Let’s take a closer look at the XL2540 in our full review.Design
The XL2540 offers a continued evolution of BenQ / Zowie’s line of gaming monitors. As expected, we have a bright 24.5-inch TN panel surrounded by a bezel of moderate thickness. There’s no BenQ or Zowie logo on the front of the monitor, and the shape of the bezel has even been optimised to minimise distracting reflections.
In the bottom right, we have the power LED and a quintet of front-mounted OSD buttons. I love front-mounted buttons, because they make it so much easier to change settings without getting confused about what each button does — something [...]
The BenQ GW2270HM is designed to be the ideal monitor for professionals, with features that keep your eyes healthy even after extended use. That includes a flicker-free backlight and a low blue light mode to ensure your sleep patterns aren’t disrupted. It’s also a good-looking monitor, with a sleek and minimalist design. Let’s take a closer look!
This Zowie XL2430 monitor may only measure 24 inches, but it’s packed to the brim with BenQ’s* latest gaming features. It also operates at a high refresh rate, 144Hz, making it a good choice for fast-paced games. It’s pricey though, so let’s dig a little deeper, and see how this eSports-focused Zowie monitor measures up against the competition.
* Zowie is a brand owned by BenQ, hence the dual labelling.
After looking at a compact office monitor from BenQ last week, this week we’re looking at something a little more high-end: the EW2775ZH. This 27-inch monitor boasts an AMVA panel at 1080p resolution, a fancier stand and a host of helpful features. There are low blue light modes, flicker-free operation and something called ‘brightness intelligence technology’. Let’s find out if there’s a solid monitor behind all the jargon.
