BenQ XL2430T 24-Inch monitor review

 

The BenQ XL2430T is the latest monitor from the Taiwanese company, packing a whole lot of tech into a 24-inch screen. Is it worth adding to your desktop PC setup, though? We took a look at one to find out.

First off, the BenQ XL2430T looks impressive. It's not the sharpest screen out there, offering up a Full HD resolution, but it's still sharp enough to leave images and videos looking good when you're sat directly in front of it, and it's easy on the eye

Although the image quality is good, it could be better. There's a little bit of light leakage, although it's not a deal breaker, and contrast could be better - blacks can sometimes look a little washed out. Viewing angles are also slightly restricted,...

Overall, the BenQ XL2430T is an excellent gaming monitor, and it's £280 price tag won't completely break the bank. There are loads of top-notch features thrown in, and the superbly low response time, along with the excellent build quality, helps to...

Benq XL2420G Review (featuring XL2430t)

 

A few weeks ago we took a look at one of Benq's mainstream gaming monitors. It performed well with some decent features. Today we go high end with our Benq XL2420G Review, focusing on a screen which supports G-Sync and 3DVision. Dont need those? Then...

Starting with the build quality and design of the XL2420G we have a screen which feels very solid. The bezel is of average size which gives it strength however the overall plastic used is nice and chunky, without adding significant bulk. Little design...

BenQ XL2430T 24-Inch 144Hz Gaming Monitor Review

 

BenQ sent over a 144Hz-capable 24-inch screen priced attractively. As a gamer, it'd be hard to ignore this model, which doesn't offer G-Sync support, but does deliver a great picture and excellent maximum refresh rate for less than $400.

Out-of-box and calibrated accuracy, light output, blur reduction without major brightness loss, trouble-free 144Hz refresh rate, top-notch build quality

None of consequence

The XL2430T is a premium gaming monitor at a not-quite-premium price. Though it costs a little more than most 24-inch screens, it delivers a lot more in terms of features and performance. With the best blur reduction we’ve seen to date, its only...

Gaming

 

My main monitor before this was a PLS 2560x1440 display @ 120hz, and the displays on all of my other devices are high density AMOLED or IPS panels. Even though the blur reduction is a much bigger pro than the colors are a con, my experience outside of...

For gaming, this monitor is unmatched compared to other monitors. Even other 144hz monitors without blur reduction. Reponse time is top notch, but the biggest thing about it is the blur reduction. Being able to see everything clearly even during motion...

The colors. Out of the box they are really, really bad. Worse than regular TN panels to me. After hours of adjustment, they got much better but it is still really bad. Even though it was bad enough for me to return this despite having to pay a large...
