BenQ XL2420G 144Hz G-Sync Gaming Monitor
Featuring a hybrid engine design with 1ms GTG, 144Hz, low latency, low motion blur and gaming eye-care features, the 24" XL2420G gives you the freedom to switch between BenQ's proprietary Classic Mode and the G-SYNC Mode. So you can enjoy the best of both worlds and stay on top of your game.
NVIDIA’s latest G-SYNC revolution requires monitor manufacturers to replace their scalar with a G-SYNC, trading in the freedom to scale settings like input frame, color hue, intensity and contrast for pure speed and the smoothness of the game. With the best efforts of our R&D champions, we’ve found a way to keep your options open with the world’s first hybrid engine design. So you are always in control of your desired gameplay.
For those in favor of perfect motion gaming that can be tailored to match their gameplay preferences, the Classic Mode offers a wide array of customizable settings, from Motion Blur Reduction to Gaming Refresh Rate Optimization Management (GROM), Black eQualizer, Display Pilot, Smart Scaling, S Switch, and Game Mode Loader. The mode also features BenQ’s exclusive Gaming-comfort Flicker-free Technology and Low Blue Light modes to help protect your eyes from computer-related discomfort. In essence, it’s a total package solution for agile performance, precise control, intuitive user experience and eye comfort. What’s more, with this mode, you can be sure to get the best gaming experience for games unsupported by the G-SYNC Mode.
By synchronizing the XL2420G’s display refresh rates to the GPU in a GeForce GTX-powered PC, the G-SYNC Mode enables images to appear instantly the moment they are rendered. The low latency effectively eliminates screen tearing, and minimizes display stutter and input lag – frame rate artifacts commonly seen in high-motion gaming. Ultra Low Motion Blur (ULMB) is also at your disposal to smooth the way for a near-zero motion blur performance. Ultimately, with NVIDIA’s G-SYNC technology, an unprecedented buttery smooth, ultra-responsive gameplay to victory is all you’ll get.
BenQ’s new Motion Blur Reduction technology further enhances an ultra-smooth, free-of-blur gaming experience, particularly for action-packed FPS games where every millisecond count. With Motion Blur Reduction, gamers no longer suffer from time and gaming comfort lost to poor vision quality created by motion blur and lagging. Instead, they have everything to gain with more reaction time advantage on their side to achieve ultimately a flawless victory.
Practice long hours with clear, comfortable vision or compete with top-notch vision condition with BenQ’s new Low Blue Light. The blue spectrum light, which is produced by regular computer screens, is a critical cause of eye damage, eyestrain, headaches and sleeping disorders. Now with the offering of various adjustable low blue light levels, gamers can better protect their eyes. So there would be no need for yellow tinted eyeglasses for additional eye protection, and gameplay can be clear, comfortable and hassle-free!
Developed in collaboration with pro gamers, the XL2420G has been upgraded to eliminate flickering at all brightness levels. This effectively reduces eye fatigue and elevates gaming performance through extreme visual comfort for even the most hardcore gamers enrolling long hours in action. Armed with the Gaming-comfort Flicker-free Technology, the BenQ Gaming Monitor is an epic weapon over your ultimate rivals.
As the world’s leading brand in gaming monitor, BenQ manages to provide more than just the refresh rate feature for different resolutions to reach more levels of optimal refresh rates (100/120/144Hz) with Gaming Refresh rate Optimization Management (GROM), which aims to bring users the incomparable gaming performance.
