Featuring the RevolutionEyes platform, BenQ's newest XL2420TE monitor offers exceptional monitor performance with striking visual clarity, seamless motion fluidity, and added viewing comfort for prolonged hours of competitive play. The platform's ZeroFlicker™ technology allows gamers of all levels to experience fast, flicker-free gaming on devices that are built specifically for today's games where speed, comfort, and control are important factors for success. The new XL2420TE also brings an ultra-fast 144Hz refresh rate and quick 1ms GTG response time for faster pixel rates to give players complete control over their gaming experience. For even more precision and control, the monitor combines a 12M:1 dynamic contrast ratio, true black color, and a unique de-flickering backlight circuit controller for enhanced image clarity.
All BenQ gaming monitors feature BenQ's Black eQualizer, which enables total gaming visibility by allowing players to adjust brightness without over-exposing white levels, revealing critical combat details with improved visibility in darkened areas. To accommodate individual viewing preferences, the monitors' Display Mode allows gamers to switch between several monitor screen sizes — ranging from a 24-inch 16:9 display to a traditional 17-inch 4:3 format — while Smart Scaling enables players to adjust the screen on-the-fly to virtually any custom size without impacting controller sensitivity.
