BenQ Also With a 120Hz 3D-capable LED Gaming Monitor, the XL2410T

September 20th, 2010 · 9 Comments · Other S3D Tech

BenQ just announced their first 120Hz 3D-capable LCD gaming monitor that uses LED backlight and is compatible with Nvidia’s 3D Vision active shutter glasses for use in stereoscopic 3D mode. The 23.6-inch monitor is with a Full HD resolution, 16:9 aspect ratio and 2ms GTG (Grey-to-Grey) response time, meaning that OverDrive technology is being used to achieve the faster pixel response as with all other 3D-capable monitors (TN panel again of course). BenQ is also claiming a Dynamic Contrast Ratio of 10,000,000:1 which is pretty extreme although being announced as dynamic, unfortunately they do not yet disclose the true contrast ratio, which is something that I suppose you are more interested in. I guess that we are going to have to wait a bit more before the full specifications of the display become available, but if you were waiting for the LED backlit solution from ViewSonic that is already getting some delays, then you might consider the model provided by BenQ that is expected to be available beginning of October in Europe, and worldwide thereafter.

BenQ XL2410T Monistor Specifications

Display size: 60 cm (23.6″) Wide, 16:9 Full HD, LED backlight
Resolution: 1920×1080 @ 120Hz
Panel Technology: TN (Twisted Nematic)
Response time: 2 ms (GtG)
Brightness: 300 cd/m2
Contrast ratio: 10 million to 1 (Dynamic)
Colors: 16.7M (6 bit + HiFRC)
Pixel pitch: 0.272 mm
Viewing angle CR 10:1: 170°/160°
Connections: Analog (D-sub), Digital (DVI-D DL), HDMI 1.3, Internal Power Supply
Power consumption: 22W in Eco mode, less than 0.5W in standby

The monitor also features Picture by Picture (PBP) mode, a feature that enables users to show two programs side-by-side on the screen. It offers D-sub, Dual-Link DVI-D and HDMI 1.3 ports, although for use in 120Hz and stereo 3D mode you’ll have to stick to the Dual-Link DVI-D interface.

It is interesting to note that BenQ has partnered with ZOWIE, a professional gaming gear manufacturer and more specifically with ZOWIE’s gamer teams join in during the product development and testing stages. With their assistance, the BenQ XL2410T apparently has been designed to offer the best experience for gamers, especially the FPS (First Person Shooter) game players like for example the ones keen on titles like the widely popular Counter Strike that want to have no input lag and great performance.

    Mhm, nice one!
    The question is, is there still so much ghosting like on acer GD245HQ? We will see… THX for this news!

    Excellent news, the ViewSonic won’t be the only LED 3D monitor. Can’t wait for both to come out, I’m still using a CRT and may be well switching for one of those.

    I hope it has zero input lag ala lg’s THRU MODE and adjustable sharpness and overdrive. then I might buy it and not wait for a 1920×1200 :p

    Some of the benefits of LED backlighting are thinness and light weight, which in this example appear to be negated by the bulky stand.

    THX for the News. Nice Monitor, will be my next Investition :)

    Well, I hope that the bulky stand will be at least sturdy, unlike my wobbly viewsonic monitor.

    Ugly design. Hope it’s better looking irl. I’m leaning towards the ASUS VG236H but can’t decide for sure. Any thoughts on that?

    Nice to see that the 120Hz “revolution” finally gaining speed. Now I just waiting for ATI to deliver on their 3D initiative, not getting my hopes up on that though.

    ASUS VG236H is fantastic but its LCD!!!
    The world is moving on to LED’s.
    I would strongly suggest you to wait for an ASUS or Samsung or LG LED Full HD Monitor.
