For most people the only requirement for a computer monitor is that it is big and bright enough for them to read their favorite websites and emails. In the world of computer gaming however, the requirements those users have for computer monitors is much greater. BenQ is stepping up to provide the gaming community with display solutions that meet their needs and the company is confident enough in these products that it serves as a sponsor to Major League Gaming (MLG).

Not too long ago BenQ renewed its sponsorship of MLG and it announced two new gaming monitors: the RL2450HT and the RL2455HM monitors that are designed to meet the needs of the gaming community. According to the company the RL2455HM offers features like a 60Hz refresh rate, while the RL2455HM offers features such as a 1ms GTG response time. “We are proud to be the first monitor manufacturer to dedicate itself to professional gaming and we can’t wait to join MLG agin this year as it kicks off its 10th Pro Circuit Season with the Winter Championship in Dallas,” says Bob Wudeck, director of retail and e-Commerce at BenQ America Corp.

“For the world’s top gamers, our RL2450HT is set to deliver the ultimate RTS [real-time strategy] experience, while the new RL2455HM is specifically designed to take fast action FPS [first-person shooter] console gaming to an entirely new level. These elite displays will be joined by the XL2420T console monitor, which will be used by MLG throughout the event [MLG Winter Championship]. In addition, be sure to keep an eye out at future events this season for the soon-to-be-released flagship XL2720T, which features a stunning 27-inch widescreen display.”

BenQ says the RL2455HM will be used for Call of Duty: Black Ops II at the Winter Championship and the RL2450HT will be used for League of Legends and StarCraft II: Heart of the Swarm. The company says both monitors offer users 24-inch screens with 16:9 aspect ratios with LED backlighting that produces contrast ratios as high as 12,000,000:1. The monitors also include the company’s black eQualizer that is said to enable total visibility by adjusting the screen without over saturating white levels, and a Display Mode that allows gamers to switch between monitor sizes.
