BenQ XL2410/11/20 Club

post #1 of 727
Thread Starter 
Just got my XL2420T, thought I'd start a club since I didn't find any. Will ask to make it official if enough people are interested.
If you post pictures, I can link your name on the member list to your post.

This is where you can see the firmware version and other interesting stuff. Like my 4130 back light on hours rolleyes.gif

"How to enter service mode"
1: Turn off the display
2: Hold the 4th button from the top, while turning on the screen.
3. Press the 4th button to "Enter the service Mode" as they have written it.

The 4th button from the top stops being "Service Mode", when you turn off and on the display.

Pro tip to people who absolutely hate the hideus, vile purple logo:
Move the "Logo: on" to "Off" and be happy.

Enable DDC/CI and control color, contrast and brightness with http://screenwhite.com/screenbright/

What's the difference between the XL2420T and TX guys?

Also - would anyone mind measuring the width of the bezel on your 2420 please? I may swap out my 2410s for the 20s if they're a bit thinner.

The TX has a built-in IR-emitter IIRC and includes the 3DVision 2 glasses. Has to be bought separately for the T. The TX is supposedly cheaper if you intend to use 3D, but I haven't checked.

TFT Central also say that the XL2410T is 20 mm top/bottom and 23 mm on the sides. The XL2420T/TX doesn't have any part of the bezel that extends further than 18 mm, so it's clearly superior for portrait Eyefinity/Surround.
