BenQ, the company behind one of the most popular gaming monitors on the market, has announced the arrival of the ZOWIE XL-K Generation models: the XL2546K and the XL2411K. Designed with gamers in mind, these high-end monitors are aimed at giving them the edge when it comes to performance and accuracy. Featuring high refresh rates and full HD resolution, these monitors have everything that players need when it comes to gaming competitively.
The new XL-K Generation monitors feature smaller base stands than their predecessors, giving you more room on the table for your keyboard and mousepads. The stands also provide additional height and tilt settings, making sure you have the monitor right where you want it, regardless of your height.
Starting off with the higher end of the two, the 24.5" 240Hz XL2546K comes with built-in shields to better protect the monitor during transport, and also to prevent side light sources from creating any onscreen glare. It also features DyAc⁺ Technology, which reduces blur and allows players to maintain sight of their crosshair at all times, improving their aim and accuracy. It also comes with the ever-handy S-Switch - an external device for you to adjust the settings on your monitor without fumbling over hard to press buttons on the side or back of the display.
The XL2411K is slightly smaller at 24" and only refreshes at 144Hz, and doesn't come with the built-in shields or the S-Switch, though they are an optional purchase. The monitor also supports DyAc™ Technology, though due to limitations of the panel, turning it on does reduce brightness. However, it does come with a much cheaper price tag than the XL2546K.
With everyone working and gaming in front of the computer from their own homes during these trying times, it's important to take care of your eyes. Which is where BenQ's latest monitor, the GW2780T, comes in.
An upgrade to the GW2480T, this 27" display features the latest eye-care technologies designed to make staring at the screen a less tiring and strenuous affair for your eyeballs. How does it work? You might ask. The monitor utilizes BenQ's Brightness Intelligence Technology (B.I.) which automatically adjusts the screen light to suit the user's surrounding environments, adapting brightness and enhancing dark areas on the display without overexposing bright regions. No more manually tweaking with your brightness settings on your monitor throughout the day. Just continue to use it like you normally would.
The monitor also features a highly-adjustable stand that allows you to tilt it at various angles to maximize viewing comfort and completely rotate the display if you plan to use it in portrait mode. Port-wise, it accepts HDMI 1.4, DP 1.2 and D-sub. While the refresh rate is locked at 60Hz, which is acceptable for most people, the eye-care benefits will be what most people will be buying it for.
Check out the GW2480T, available now for RM899 on BenQ's official Lazada store.
In addition to the display, BenQ has announced that the best-selling BenQ ScreenBar, a USB-powered LED Monitor light desk lamp. Mounting on top of your monitor, this desk lamp will help free up some of your desk clutter while illuminating your desk at the same time. With different brightness levels and light temperatures to suit your needs, ambient sensors for auto-dimming, and a downward-facing angle that doesn't cause monitor glare, the ScreenBar is perfect for people who want to work in a dark room without having to turn on all the lights.
The BenQ ScreenBar is will cost RM599 when it goes on sale on BenQ's official Lazada store.

BenQ has announced the launch of its new line of monitors targeted at gamers - MOBIUZ. Kicking the series off is the EX2710 - a 27" monitor which offers everything most gamers are looking for in a display - FHD resolution, a 144Hz refresh rate IPS display panel, and FreeSync support to ensure no screen tearing when the action speeds up.
The MOBIUZ display also features an ambient light sensor which helps to adjust the colours and brightness of the onscreen images, preserving subtle shades in dark regions and fine details in bright areas. This should help gamers who don't have ideal lighting conditions wherever their PCs are set up.
But what sets these monitors apart from its peers are the inclusion of BenQ's renowned treVolo speakers - a bonus for people who want a high-quality audio gaming experience without using headphones or sacrificing limited table space for external speakers.
The MOBIUZ EX2710 (27") is priced at RM1,499, while the smaller EX2510 (24.5") is not available yet (but will be priced at RM1,299). For more information and details on the displays, visit BenQ's official website.
