BenQ Zowie XL2540

Even as a non-professional gamer, there’s nothing more frustrating that trashy framerates, screen-tearing and stutter when I’m playing an FPS game like CS:GO or racing at Project Cars. Pro e-sports athletes have even higher requirements, with framerates on their rigs potentially hitting 240fps and higher. Here’s where a gaming monitor’s refresh rate plays a crucial part to match the punishing framerates churned out by pro rigs.

And this is precisely where the new BenQ Zowie XL2540 professional e-sports monitor excels. It offers an unprecedented, native 240Hz refresh rate. Likewise for the gaming rig to keep up, BenQ recommends the latest GPUs such as the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 10 Series, AMD Radeon RX 480 or higher.

Topping at 24.5 inches and pushing out Full HD 1920×1080 resolution, the XL2540 has a snappy 1ms (GtG) response time, contrast ratio of 1000:1 and a typical brightness of 400cd/m2. The TN-type panel has a 16:9 display ratio.

Its claim to fame of course, is the impressive native 240Hz refresh rate. 240Hz makes even 144Hz look amateurish. It promises the most fluid gameplay, silky smooth fast-motion, all the time.

The Zowie XL2540 comes with a unique Shield and Height Adjustable Stand that helps pro gamers to focus. The shield and stand are angle and height adjustable.

Black eQualizer increases visibility of dark scenes without overexposing bright areas.
