The computer gaming market, next to audio, may be the most user driven in consumer electronics. BenQ, one of the most active manufacturers in the computer gaming space, recently introduced its XL2420TE LED Monitor at the Major League Gaming (MLG) Spring Championship in Anaheim.

BenQ included in the 3D-ready monitor its new ZeroFlicker technology, a direct light system that provides gamers with a smooth, flicker-free image. The XL2420TE display also includes a 144Hz refresh rate, a 1ms response time, and a dynamic contrast ratio of 12,000,000:1.

The XL2420TE supports D-Sub, HDMI, DVI-DL and DP inputs for console gaming action.

“We know from our relationship with pro gamers that achieving greatness means dedicating hundreds of hours to practice time,” says Bob Wudeck, associate vice president, strategy and business development for BenQ America. “With this commitment to gamers in mind, we developed our new ZeroFlicker Technology, which aims at providing eSport athletes with the ability to participate in longer gaming sessions without compromising comfort. As a result, eSport athletes and amateur gamers alike are able to experience fast, flicker-free gaming on devices that are built specifically for the requirements of today’s competitive gaming situations where speed, comfort and control are paramount to success.”

Other technologies built into the display include the company’s Black eQualizer, which enables total gaming visibility by allowing gamers to adjust brightness without over-driving white levels.  The Display Mode option allows users to switch between nine monitor screens, including 17” (4:3), 19” (4:3), 19"W (16:10), 21.5"W (16:9), 23.6"W (16:9), 24"W (16:9) and 27"W (16:9), while the Smart Scaling option allows users to adjust to any custom screen size without affecting controller sensitivity.

BenQ says it will add the Black eQualizer into future display products.
