BenQ XL2410T LED

BenQ XL2410T


Despite the high prices of certain internal hardware like Graphics cards, mobos and CPUs, one of the biggest purchases you’ll ever make as a hardware enthusiast or gamer is your display. The monitor, the device you use to view all the content your internals pump out; it’s important.

Today I’m reviewing one from BenQ, their 23″  XL2410T LED monitor with 3D Vision technology. Let’s see if the two gamer endorsements from Heaton and Spawn are worth their salt.

    Nice review. Did you use anaglyph glasses for the 3D or have you got the 3D Vision Kit?
    Just wondering what the display is like for ghosting using 120Hz and the active shutter glasses. My 2233RZ may need replacing when I have the money and I could do with a 24″ 1080p replacement.

    Nice to see at least one monitor manufacturer realizes that not everyone wants bright shiny bezels. Matte black is getting harder and harder to find.

  • Did you notice a difference in games or on the desktop at 120hz/fps? Try an older fps game and look around fast, should be quite a difference. Most 3d ready monitor reviews i’ve read find 120hz is very nice.

    FPS mode is supposed to wash things out so you see better what happens in the shadows.

    I think the lg 23″ 3d monitor (w2363d something) is best, except the one i got to try had very poor vertical viewing angle so i couldnt see what was on the top shelf in dark games.

  • BTW, it is not always windows 7 redraws at 120fps, try fraps with dwm monitoring enabled and move a window around fast from a 60hz monitor to a 120hz in extended desktop mode.

    • I’ll be honest I didn’t notice that much differenceon the desktop or anything. I really found the BenQ to be too in your face most of the time, even with settings tweaked. Whether FPS is designed to help pro gamers or not, it looks horrible.

  • I must admit that this BenQ XL2410T would stand very nice on my desk. I don’t understand why many people say that it is ugly.

    It is looking just fine to me.

    You need an avarage of 120fps to feel difference between 60hz and 120hz, is very noticeable you can’t take advantage of 120hz without 120fps lol.

    This LCD LED monitor has prove to have almost 0 input lag, and very fast response time. Overall is better for gaming than the Dell.

    This review lack of lot of information.

    • Thanks for the comment, but I’m afraid I did have my system gaming well over 60FPS, so the 120HZ should have been noticeable. However, if you look at reviews of similar monitors I think you’ll find that the difference is often found to be neglible, though it depends on the reviewer; and that’s where the issue is. Things like displays are very dependant on the viewer, some people will prefer it others won’t.
