BenQ XL2420TX vs ASUS VG236HE?

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Has anyone had the pleasure of owning both of these? How do they compare? I know the basic stuff like the Asus has a glossy screen and how they both look, I am mostly wondering if there is any noticeable difference in input lag? I have read that both of them are so low that you cannot tell. Just looking for some confirmation about this.

I do not care that the BenQ has all the other options to virtualize a smaller monitor etc. Or that you can store several preset settings on the switch that comes with it. Really just looking to hear if you can tell a difference in input lag at all.

Hopefully no one will have a placebo effect and I can get some really good answers, but I am expecting most people to not notice anything. Like I said though, looking for some confirmation.

Thanks for any and all opinions of course! smile.gif

EDIT: I have heard the ASUS has an input lag of anywhere from 3.9ms to 8ms depending on the review (at least on the ones that did not use the "timer" method as I have heard that is very inaccurate). Since 120Hz means that one frame is shown every 8.34ms you should not be able to notice this anyways. Although it is always nice to have something that is a little faster anyways so I am still looking for some opinions from people who have owned both or just one of the two! Have you noticed any lag? How is the build quality? Do you like the extra features on the BenQ or are they not really used? If you do use them then what do you use them for, could you do without them, etc?

Trying to see if the BenQ is worth $100 more since it is new. It just doesn't seem to offer many useful new technologies to me but I want to hear some more opinions since the monitor size and resolution visualizer seem like they can be very useful, I am just not sure what they would be used for! tongue.gif

Both of them have slight response issues as far as I'm aware.

Believe the Asus has better picture quality. Input lag should be around the same.

I believe the benq should have a lower input lag compared the to asus, considering the xl2410 (previous gen) was the lowest among 120hz screens. Input lag is very difficult to measure, so comparing numbers between reviews from different sources wouldn't be very accurate. I do not have either monitor, though, so I could definitely be wrong.

can someone else chime in on this subject? I may buy another 120hz display, but I am wondering if I should stick with the asus or get the benq?


I do love my asus, it's very bright, and I like the glossy. I like glossy displays for indoor displays, it makes them look nicer. I despise them on laptops though.

So hard of a choice, since the benq has no input lag... and I am super duper quake live shafter
