BenQ Unveils the XL2411T 24-Inch Gaming Monitor

Taiwanese company BenQ is just about ready to release a new gaming-friendly monitor, the 24-inch XL2411T which features a 120 Hz refresh rate, support for NVIDIA's 3D Vision 2 technology, and a 1ms GtG response time (TN panel).

Seen below, BenQ's display also has a native resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels, a contrast ratio of 1,000:1 (12,000,000:1 DCR), D-Sub, DVI and HDMI connectivity, a 0.001-frame input lag, a stand allowing for height, tilt, pivot, stroke and swivel adjustment, plus a FPS Mode, and the Black eQualizer color engine technology (which improves visibility in dark scenes). Unfortunately BenQ has yet to say when the XL2411T will become available of how much it will cost.

Is it only me who noticed people started demanding higher resolution and pixel densities after apple released 'retina' display products?

Not really. Not only because for gaming a bigger res that HD is a killer for GPU, but also for the eyes....Currently not even Win 7/8 cannot scale properly high DPI font setting in desktop. Java, Flash and ActiveX craps are DISASTER. Besides higher res means smaller stuff on the screen = bad for your eyes. Again Windows is not like iOS or Android to show the same proportions despite the resolution ;) :shadedshu

You can change the size between 100% (default), 125% and 150% and it works perfectly, so I don't know what you're talking about. Maybe not as perfect as the other OS, but you can always find a setup that works fine. For 4k monitors it might not be enough scaling, but for 1440/1600p is more than enough. Future Ted will take care of 4k monitors (reference to How I Met Your Mother).

Just an offtopic question, are there any ports out there yet able to provide 7,680×4,320@120Hz?
There's no single port that does that, but use a few dual-link DVI interleaved (same principle as Eyefinity/3DVS). It's how large format high-res screens (think NASA mission control) work.

Aaa, noup, it doesn't work. At least not properly. Trust me, I have 5+ years experience with this on a laptop with 1200p resolution, and if I put more than 115 DPI (custom), everything is a complete mess.

Well, it works perfectly for everyone except you. I'm sorry, but stating that anything beyond 1080p produces worse quality is complete BS. And I've been using 1600x1200, 1920x1440 or 2048x1536 for over a decade (CRT) and later also 1080p and 1600p and what you say it's again complete BS.

That's not what I meant, you are just twisting my words. Go bother someone else please.

So you say it's a disaster, it doesn't work properly and it's a complete mess, plus it's bad for the eyes (your own words)... but I'm twisting your words? How does not all that translate into a worse quality desktop experience if I may ask?

But scaling isn't very good in Windows 7, I thought that was more or less common knowledge. It works pretty good, but it's far from perfect.

I note that the discussion turned to a subject other than what lets suggest the title. And even if the topic is quite old, I will participate
because I just bought this monitor (xl2411t), and frankly there is nothing to say except that this is an excellent product for gaming, and
especially for those who want to try stereoscopic 3D.I would also say that a 24-inch screen is perfect for Full-HD resolution, because beyond pixels appear larger (pitch).

Otherwise, I am very satisfied with my purchase and I even just publish a full review about this monitor for those who still hesitate to buy it.
