If you’ve got an e-sports gamer on a budget, this monitor will fit the bill.
Benq’s Zowie XL2411P claims to be the “premiere e-Sports monitor”, which is probably stretching things, but it definitely is well suited for those damaging their posture and wrists in the name of e-Sport glory on a budget. At only 24-inches wide, this smaller size allows Benq to pack in the gaming features people want, at a price they can afford.
The headline feature is 144Hz support at a 1080p resolution. This is the sweet spot for gamers without 6 figure setups, who prize smooth frame rates over high resolutions. At 1080p, 144fps comes way easier than at 4K. To make the most of those 144 frames per second, a blur reduction feature can be enabled to strobe the backlight and reduce perceived motion blur and ghosting. The downside of that however, is reduced brightness. But played a typically dark room, it’s not an issue at all.
The XL2411P Black eQualizer’s feature won’t solve racial relations any time soon, but it will let you see any video game enemies hiding in the shadows. When enabled, the monitor will decrease contrast on darker parts of images dynamically. It works quite well, with low false positive and can come in pretty handy.
At $329, the Benq Zowie XL2411P is one of the cheapest 144Hz, low latency monitors on the market. If you’re an e-sports gamer, where refresh rate and low latency matters above all else, but don’t have budget for a bigger monitor, add the Benq Zowie XL2411P to your shopping list.
