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…
