BenQ ZOWIE continues to expand their lineup of TN-based gaming models. The XL2411K offers a redesign of the popular XL2411(P/Z/T). The stand base is the most notable change from the front, with a compact design that’s designed to take up minimal desk depth and indeed width. Useful for those with compact desks or who prefer to game with their keyboard at an angle, close to the screen. A moderately thick dark grey matte plastic bezel surrounds the screen. There’s a little satin red element on the stand neck, a cable tidy loop, visible depending on the stand height and your viewing position. The OSD (On Screen Display) controls have been redesigned, located at the rear towards the bottom right as viewed from the front. They include a joystick and a few pressable buttons.
A 24″ TN (Twisted Nematic) panel is used, with 1920 x 1080 (Full HD) resolution and 144Hz refresh rate. Adaptive-Sync is not supported, with the focus on this one being on high frame rate competitive gaming with the inclusion of the ‘DyAc’ (Dynamic Accuracy) strobe backlight setting for those who want minimal perceived blur. A 1000:1 static contrast is specified, whilst a medium matte anti-glare screen surface is included for effective glare handling. A flicker-free WLED backlight is employed, with 320 cd/m² typical maximum luminance and ~sRGB colour space coverage. BenQ’s usual suite of flexible Low Blue Light (LBL) settings are included, to enhance viewing comfort. The stand attaches centrally using a quick release mechanism and can be removed to make way for an alternative 100 x 100mm VESA compatible solution, if preferred. The included stand offers full ergonomic flexibility, including 155mm (6.10 inches) of height adjustment and 90° rotation into portrait. Portrait viewing isn’t something we’d generally advise given the viewing angle restrictions of the panel type, however. The ports face downwards and include; AC power input (internal power converter), 2 HDMI 1.4 ports, HDMI 2.0, DP 1.2 and a 3.5mm headphone jack.
Further details can be found on the manufacturer’s website. The monitor is listed with an RRP of $229 USD.
