It's a new year, which means you may very well be in the market for a new LCD
. If you're a gamer, and you're in the market, BenQ's new RL2455HM may be worth a look. Launched at CES 2013, this LCD slots into the company's growing line of gaming monitors. It features a 1ms grey-to-grey response time, 2-watt stereo speakers, dual HDMI ports, as well as advanced custom settings, such as BenQ's Black eQualizer, Display Mode, and Smart Scaling to give players an edge over their opponents. The RL2455HM also features a 60Hz refresh rate tuned to match console video output for seamless connectivity, a 24-inch widescreen (16:9) full HD LED screen, LED backlighting, and a 12 million to 1 contrast ratio.
To give players a competitive edge, the RL2455HM features BenQ
's Black eQualizer to enable total visibility by allowing gamers to adjust the screen brightness without over-exposing white levels - revealing critical combat details with improved visibility in darkened areas. To accommodate individual viewing preferences, a Display Mode allows gamers to switch between seven monitor screen sizes while the Smart Scaling feature gives players the ability to scale the screen on-the-fly to virtually any custom size - ranging from a 24-inch 1080p display to a traditional 17-inch 4:3 format - without impacting controller sensitivity.
It'll ship in March for $229, which certainly isn't bad given the feature set.
