BenQ RL2455HM vs Asus VG248QE

Hello :-)

I currently have one Asus VG248QE, but I would like to upgrade to 3 monitors. Here in Switzerland, the Asus VG248QE is at least 414 CHF (1 CHF = 1.06 USD). So two additional monitors would cost me 828 CHF.

Then I stumbled upon the BenQ RL2455HM, that would cost me 185 CHF. So a tripple monitor setup would cost me 555 CHF.

What concerns me is the panel. The colors of the VG248QE are so damn beautiful. Does anybody know how the RL2455HM looks like? Is the BenQ even near as good as the Asus monitor?

I know that the BenQ 'only' has 60Hz, compared to the 144hz of the Asus monitor. But I do not think that it will make that much of a difference, since I only do notice a difference when frames drop below 45fps - running games at 60fps is fine for me. My main concern is the color quality of the panel.

Thanks in advance for an answer :-)

    Thanks for the answer :-)
    All the review I've read so far were always complimenting the BenQ on its image quality, but none of them actually compared them to the panel I have.

    But I'll get 3 of them - the review you linked in your comment convinced me :-)

    Every spec I've seen so far stated it has 60hz.
  5. Site I saw was probably just wrong then. 75Hz is pretty unusual, that's why it stood out to me.

    It is pretty common that the spec's will list 75hz max on 60hz 1080p monitors. At their native resolution, 60hz is usually the max, and to get the 75hz requires you to drop down to 720p. I wish they'd be more clear on these things.
  7. Thanks for clearing that up. It'll be interesting to see what kind of refresh rates AMOLED will reach when it becomes a mainstream technology. At 360Hz I might just consider using v-sync...
