BenQ Gets Serious about Gaming, Launches LX2410 120Hz Monitor

It appears an epiphany went and hit BenQ upside its head, and that is if it wants to "lead and become a true and professional gaming monitor provider," BenQ has to "understand the mindset and needs of gamers." Those are BenQ's words, not ours, though we fully agree -- the way it works in business, it typically helps to understand the consumers you're trying to sell product to.

BenQ has a bigger point there than just a Business 101 message. They've gone and released their newest display, the 23.6-inch LED Gaming Monitor XL2410T, which was co-developed by ZOWIE, a professional Gaming gear manufacturer.

Featuring a 120Hz refresh rate and quick 2ms GTG (OverDrive) response time, BenQ promises lag won't rear it's ugly head. The XL2410T is also 3D-ready and comes with Picture by Picture (PBP), a special set of "Gaming Display Modes," 10,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio, and a pair of hotkeys, one for changing the display mode and the other for Smart Scaling.

The XL2410T will start shipping early next month in Europe, with a worldwide release to follow. No word yet on price.
