Have fun!
It would take about seven months to travel this distance in a spaceship. Better be some good in-flight entertainment. In case you're wondering, you'd need about 2000 feature-length movies to occupy that many waking hours. Sit back and relax. Jupiter is more than 3 times as far as we just ...

It seems BenQ thinks gamers are blind or want to be blind. The presets on the XL2420Z leave a lot to be desired. It's hardly a shock given their other 144Hz monitors but if they could have at least one preset with nicely represented colours it would be great. Call it 'PCM mode' maybe?

But the motion blur reduction mode is very effective I might add. And ICC profiles do thankfully work on the desktop and many games now which is a bonus.

It's finally live. Wanted to wait until New Year but just couldn't do that. It's something of a work in progress anyway and will likely be updated next year.

You wanted this to be like the P2414H but with thinner bezels... and it sort of is!

Another review. Something a bit different - a 16:10 monitor. An unfortunate rarity these days. The last 16:10 model reviewed was the Dell U2412M. With the BL2411PT, BenQ have delivered an improved experience over the older Dell model in many important areas.
