Benq XL2420G Review – Setup GSync (and OSD)
For those who don’t want to use G-Sync (or don’t have a compatible Graphics card) there is a classic mode available in the XL2420G’s settings. This returns us to having control over input frame, colour hue, intensity and contrast. We can also tweak all the usual setting in here (for example brightness) and take advantage of pre-set profiles as well as advanced black technology or blue-light reduction.
Benq XL2420G Review – The XL2430T
For those who don’t need 3DVision and G-Sync, the XL2430T is an alternate option that BenQ offer. It arrives in a similar box with near identical bundle (minus the DisplayPort cable) and still including the cover for transporting the screen. Many of the key features are still present on this 24″ 1920×1080 LED screen, including Black eQualizer, low blue-light mode, 1ms GtG, gaming refresh rate optimisation, motion blur reduction, tilt/swivel/pivot and downloadable profiles. Little changes include physical buttons rather than touch sensitive and alternate stand design.
The control pod is also included on the XL2430T, though it is a different shape. Connectivity is slightly different too, a VGA being added here as well as mic ports. Also visible beside the USB ports is what looks like a button, it’s not… this is where our headphone bracket extends from.
Key specs are:
There are also some small tweaks to the OSD (such as the obvious removal of G-Sync options) but overall the same structure is present, as it was on the RL series which we recently reviewed.
Benq XL2420G Review – User Experience (subjective) and Conclusion
Starting with the build quality and design of the XL2420G we have a screen which feels very solid. The bezel is of average size which gives it strength however the overall plastic used is nice and chunky, without adding significant bulk. Little design aspects like headphone holder and carry handle are appreciated and we like the overall styling of the stand and base.
Feature wise the XL2420G is absolutely packed with items. Plenty of profiles and blue light control are good to have and the control pod as well as mode software make this screen a little easier to work with than competitor models. Of course G-sync is what this screen is all about that that works very well. Gaming on this screen was impressive as standard but with G-Sync it went to that extra level. Quite simply it is a smooth, clear and highly enjoyable experience… but it is one which has to be experienced to fully appreciate. You know you are getting a better experience but it is only when going back to a “standard ” display do you notice how much the XL2420G has enhanced the smoothness and display quality.
As far as the other performance areas go, we have a display which gives decent uniform performance across the panel. It does take a little while to fully warm up to maximum quality/vibrance after some time off (approx 10-15mins) and viewing angles could be a touch better but that a minor issue. Back to the plusses, colour reproduction and contrast are very good on this model.
Summary: Good quality panel, decent feature set and competitively priced. Without doubt G-Sync offers a fantastic, smooth and therefore more immersive experience.
