Given the XL2410T’s ability to playback, what are essentially two separate images in 3D; it doesn’t come as a surprise that the monitor supports Picture in Picture mode as well. Sources can be a combination of HDMI, VGA and DVI. This has great potential for both multitasking and wasting time. Multiple display modes are also supported on the XL2410T, and with the switch of a button, you can switch between 17”, 19”, 19” widescreen, 22” widescreen and full 24” widescreen modes. This becomes really useful when playing old games such as Warcraft III where resolution aspect ratios are limited to 4:3. Just pressing the button will allow you to switch between different aspect ratios, making the game play as it was meant to be, and not awkwardly stretched out.
Being an LED monitor, the BenQ XL2410T has the inherent benefit of having excellent contrast ratios and deep black levels. While the Dynamic contract Ratio is rated at 10M:1, the viewing angles are a cool 170° left to right and top to bottom. Another advantage of the LED technology is the response time of the XL2410T, which is an impressively low 2ms. Now nobody can complain about monitor lag when it comes to fast moving games as there’s just no possibility of ghosting.
What really struck me at first about the BenQ XL2410T was its simple and expansive design. In actual performance, the monitor excelled at pretty much everything I threw at it; from games to movies to just plain webpages, everything looks crisp and pleasant. Even on its own the monitor would have been worth it, but the fact that it’s Nvidia 3D Vision compatible, coupled with its practicality put it head and shoulders above the competition.
