Gamers get two new 3D Vision monitors from BenQ

By Lee Kaelin on

Hot on the heels of BenQ's recent RTS gamers display launch, the Taiwanese firm has announced the addition of two new models to their range aimed at FPS gamers. The XL2420T and XL2420TX are both 24" 3D display models and support Nvidia's 3D Vision 2 technology.

They both feature LED-backlit TN panels with a native resolution of 1920x1080 pixels, a 2ms GTG (gray to gray) response time, 120Hz refresh rate, a typical brightness of 350 cd/m2 and a contrast rate of 1,000:1. Also included is three port powered USB hub, D-Sub, DVI, two HDMI and DisplayPort 1.2 inputs.

They come complete with a stand that allows for height adjustment as well as the typical horizontal and vertical adjustment. The firm's eQualizer colour engine technology also makes an appearance, used to brighten up dark areas without over-exposing the rest of the viewable screen.

Also included is the Display Mode and Smart Scaling functions which enable users 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), with two special FPS modes specially tuned for Counter-Strike 1.6 and Counter-Strike Source. Users can change the FPS modes for different games by accessing the Game Mode Loader, an online service for storing game presents.

Both models come bundled with BenQ's S-switch remote control, allowing users to change display settings and modes. The XL2420TX takes features slightly further by including an integrated IR receiver and a pair of 3D glasses. Prices have not been officially announced yet, but pre-order prices as low as €314 (~$430) have been seen for the XL2420T.
