BenQ Introduces 24-inch RL2460HT Gaming Monitor

By - Source: BenQ Press Release | B 16 comments

Here's another monitor for pro gamers.

During CES 2014, BenQ America introduced the RL2460HT, a dedicated professional gaming monitor fine-tuned for three types of gaming: console, RTS/MOBA-style, and fighting games. This monitor is also equipped with the company's exclusive RevolutionEyes technology.

"The new RL2460HT has been specifically optimized for real-time strategy (RTS), first-person shooter (FPS) console games such as the all-new Call of Duty: Ghosts, MOBA-style games like StarCraft ll: Heart of the Swarm, League of Legends, and Defense of the Ancients (Dota 2), as well as for popular fighting games such as Mortal Kombat," reads the company press release.

The RL2460HT consists of a 24-inch, LED-powered TN panel with a 1 ms response time. The display also sports integrated speakers, two HDMI ports, DVI and VGA connections, and SmartScaling so that pro gamers can customize their screen viewing area for optimal viewing performance.

BenQ explains that the RevolutionEyes tech includes ZeroFlicker capabilities that eliminate traditional LED flicker issues. The tech also includes a Black eQualizer that allows players to adjust brightness without over-exposing white levels, enabling improved visibility in darkened areas. Low Blue Light technology reportedly removes up to 70 percent of blue spectrum light to protect gamers' eyes.

According to BenQ, one of the HDMI ports is actually an output so that players can stream their game content to another screen without the risk of lag. The monitor also provides a height-adjustable stand with a precision marker so that the user can duplicate the precise setup if something happens to the adjustment.

Available early in Q1 2014, BenQ's new RL2460HT gaming monitor will retail for $249.

    I really don't understand the consistent inclusion of built-in speakers on enthusiast monitors. You don't get good sound quality from them, and every pro gamer I've seen uses headphones or a headset anyway. Maybe it's just for the fighting games, if you can't be arsed to bring along a decent set of external speakers?

    What is the native and max resolution? I mean, it's kinda important and yet was never mentioned in the article or the press release from BenQ.

    I make it as my principle not to buy monitor with built-in speakers, because I'm paying for something I won't use and that I don't have to pay if I buy a different monitor.I also make it my principle not to buy TN monitors. They suck ass.

    I have their FP241VW, which utilizes an S-PVA screen. I've had it for almost 6 years now and love it. If I get another monitor from them, I'd prefer it not to be a TN panel...

    Calling it a professional gaming monitor is clearly a marketing gimmick. First clue: Since when does the "professional" version of anything cost the same or less than the typical mass-market price?

    ASUS VG248QE fast gaming monitor shortens the time it takes for rendered frames to display on the screen. Lower monitor latency gives a gamer the opportunity to improve their in-game response time.The 144Hz rapid refresh rate speeds up the frames per second to deliver ultra-smooth motion scenes in 2D intense actions*.The response time is also reduced to 1ms to eliminate tracers by controlling voltage levels when driving liquid crystals thus ensuring fluid and clear video playback. 24-inch Full HD LED-backlit 144Hz display 1920x1080

    I refuse to buy any more shitty 1080p monitors,tvs, or projectors..and for that price it is assuredly not any higher in resolution. Get on with 2560x1600@120hz or 4k@60+hz with gsync and you will have my attention.
