BenQ Zowie Monitors: For the e-Sports Pro


Whether you game casually or professionally, at home or on stage, you need a monitor that’s there to help you win. BenQ’s ZOWIE RL and XL monitors are carefully designed and packed with special features that’ll get you the upper hand. The RL2455, RL2460, and RL2755 are console-focused displays that can tackle First-Person Shooters (FPS), fighting, or sports games on any console to bring you a lag-free gaming experience. It supports the PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, Wii, and Wii U. The RL2460 for example, lets you set up a head-to-head combat station so you can battle your opponent without the distractions.

On the other end of the spectrum, the XL2411, XL2430, XL2720, and XL2730 are more suited for PC gaming because they are outfitted with 144 Hz panels. These displays offer a smooth input and viewing experience because a faster refresh rate reduces blurring and screen tearing while providing a more responsive gaming experience. Please note that refresh rate is not to be confused with frame rate, and having a fast refresh rate will not improve your experience unless you have a capable graphics card. Some also come with a dedicated profile switching accessory, built-in headphone holder, and a handle for easy transportation.

Both RL and XL monitors are available in 24 and 27" variants with at least a 1920 x 1080 resolution so you’ll be able to enjoy Full HD content with any monitor you choose. Some features shared across both product lines include enhanced game modes, Black eQualizer, reflection-reducing bezels, and flicker-free and low blue light technology. Moreover, both RL and XL displays are built with Twisted Nematic (TN) panels that have a low response time, ideal for fast-paced actions scenes such as those found in games and movies. They also have a wide variety of connection options ranging from DVI to DisplayPort, so you’ll easily be able to connect it to your system of choice.
