Brief First Impressions from BenQ XL2410T 3D LCD Monitor

December 23rd, 2010 · 9 Comments · GeForce 3D Vision


I was finally able to take a quick look at BenQ’s XL2410T 3D monitor yesterday and although I wasn’t able to properly test it as I wasn’t prepared well enough for that, I still was able to try a few things and get a general idea. Have in mind that here I’m talking about an early sample of the monitor, not a production one that you may already find in retail stores in some European countries for example. I’m noting the fact that I’m talking about an early sample, as the final products might be better than what I’ve seen, so do not get a final judgment yet based on what I’m about to tell you for the monitor.

First of all I really liked the very flexible stand that allows you to move the display and set it almost in any position you need it to with ease, and although that certainly adds to the price, it is something that you would want. The monitor certainly looks nicer live than on the photos that were circling the net, it offers high brightness, sharp image without over-sharpening, control for the overdrive function (called AMA) although not when in 3D mode (not that you’d need to disable it then anyway). Of course some ghosting is present as expected, but what kind of surprised me was the backlight bleeding I’ve noticed when switching to 3D mode (there was none present when in 2D mode). One of the things that the presence of LED backlight here, as compared to the traditional CCFL should’ve been the more even backlight and of course the lack of backlight bleeding. But as I said the backlight bleeding issue might as well be due to the fact that this was an early sample and not a final production monitor that I saw, so if you’ve got the BenQ XL2410T already, then feel free to share your experience with backlight bleeding in 2D and 3D mode…

24″ ViewSonic V3D241wm-LED is a 120Hz Display with LED Backlight

The 24″ (23.6-inch to be precise) ViewSonic V3D241wm-LED is probably the next 3D Vision compatible display that we all are going to wait for with high hopes that it will be even better than the already available 120Hz models so far. There is still not a lot of information regarding the V3D241wm, but judging from what is known so far it will most likely be based on the same panel as Acer Aspire GD245HQ. The key difference will be the presence of a LED backlight instead of the traditional CCFL one that is found in the Acer for example and all other currently available 120Hz displays. Now the big question is what improvements will the LED backlight offer as compared to the CCFL and if that will actually bring any benefits when playing with this display in stereoscopic 3D mode? Traditionally LED backlights offer wider color gamut, better color reproduction, even backlight across the whole screen area, “blacker” black, higher contrast ratio and maybe even higher brightness. But if the panel is the same as the one used in the Acer you should not expect that much of a difference in performance between the two displays just because of the LED backlight, but since there is still some time before the ViewSonic V3D241wm-LED hits the market we better not get our hopes too high and expect it to be much better than what we already have. This way if it turns out to be really better we can be happily surprised instead of getting disappointed, which in my opinion is better. The release of the ViewSonic V3D241wm-LED is scheduled for the second quarter of the year which means it might be as early as April, so there is some time left and maybe we’ll soon have other interesting announcements from other display manufacturers…
