BenQ Zowie XL2540 MONITOR


The BenQ Zowie XL2540 is 240Hz gaming monitor with a TN panel that is full of gaming features. It is incredibly responsive due to the high refresh rate and exceptionally low input lag, and also has the ability to flicker the backlight to clear up...

Zowie XL2540 – Review


The Zowie XL2540 is a 24.5in monitor with a 1080p screen, which makes it £390 price look huge – so it's going to have to work hard to justify the outlay.

Zowie set its stall out early with this screen, which has a high price but numerous features that’ll give competitive gamers an edge: the 240Hz refresh rate is huge and enables fast, smooth gameplay, and the 1ms response time is excellent.

Best 240hz in the business


So, I wasn't keen on buying this at first but when it finally arrived and I set it up, I was amazing with how sleek it was, the side panels are optional to place onto the monitor, 240hz with clear colours and black EQ... what more could you ask for?...

BenQ ZOWIE XL2540 25" FHD / 1ms / HDMI,DP / 240Hz / Justerbar


Helt otrolig känsla att gå från 75 till 240hz. Detta är en skärm som verkligen fokuserar på att hålla uppe uppdateringsfrekvens för snabba spel. Dvs. CS-GO, Overwatch, Rocket League etc.

Jag har varit tjurig och haft min gamla skärm sen cs 1.6 tiden men tillslut bestämde jag mej att uppgradera mej lite och det blev denna BenQ skärm. den är toppen finns inget negativt alls + att den är skitsnygg, absolut värt pengarna :)

BenQ ZOWIE XL2540 25" FHD / 1ms / HDMI,DP / 240Hz / Justerbar


Mycket nöjd med produkt, den är jättebra med spel där du kan ställa in att du har en 240hz skärm. Alternativen för ljus/skärpa/contrast/färgstyrka och mycket mer känns oändligt. Jag hade 22" 60hz innan och har nu uppgraderat till den här. Mycket nöjd...

Top Monitor


Aufjedenfall ein sehr guter Monitor. Das TN Panel kann sich durchaus sehen lassen, die Verarbeitung wirkt kompakt und die Low Blue-, bzw. Flicker Free Funktion schonen die Augen merklich. Für ein 24" Monitor ohne Sync Technologie ist der Preis dennoch...

Flimmerfrei , Augenschonend , Verarbeitung
