You only need one dvi-d connection.

Will be going surround soon, and from friends rigs after i have seen, not getting 2gb version, plus i have seen a heavily modded skyrim hit over 3gb, which i do to my game too lol. thanks for your opinion though!

It's ~€330 in germany, which is £280, wonderful UK taxing I guess...

The Benq xl2411t retails for £200-£220.

The RRP for the Asus VG248qe of £320 isn't just a UK tax issue.

The US price of $280 + 20% VAT = £211, basically what the Benq sells for.

Asus are clearly charging a premium because they can.

I'm having the same issue. My Asus VG248QE is listed as a Generic PnP Monitor. When I right click to update driver software and direct it to a folder with the Asus-VG278H-3D-Monitor-EDID-override.inf, it says that the best driver software for your device is already installed.

There's a section where you can select the driver yourself. It will say something like "Let me pick from a list of device drivers on my computer" and then in there you can click have disk... to bring up a dialog box with browse, which lets you pick a specific inf file.

Right instead of just directing it to the folder, on that same screen there is an option that says "have disk" (I think it's on the same screen anyway). Click that, and then you can browse to and select the exact .inf file to force install it.

Basically once in device manager, click the generic pnp monitor that corresponds to your asus, and then update drivers. Follow the wizard, selecting things like install drivers manually from specific location and anything that sounds like you can choose your own drivers (so don't just search automatically) once you get to the screen where it says "have disk", you can click that.

xl2411t for £200-£220? Please show me where, the cheapest I found is £225 from Scan.

Also the £320 one is from some random company that no one has heard of, you get them all the time. When the actual stock gets here then places like Amazon, Scan, eBuyer etc will have it at the real price. Very likely cheaper.

The VG248QE is £311 on Scan and OCUK. It's available at £290 at Systo. But I don't see it matching Benq prices any time soon.

Overclockers.co.uk were selling the Benq xl2411t on Monday for £199.99.

Amazon price history shows it has hit £209.99 and will again based on how Amazon pricing works:

Alright guys, the video is uploaded (Has being for a while but I fell asleep lol) I'm sorry for the quality but is the best I could do, hope it gives some of you a better idea until an official profesional review is released. Its very shaky and low quality, my DROID 3 camera is not the best and it has being acting out lately. Feel free to repost the Youtube Link on other forums if you like.

There could be a problem with installing .inf files. I have PnP monitor and so do many other people. It does not allow me to use a modded inf or then inf file that is on Asus website for this monitor. I do have a converted cable DP to DVI-D. No idea if this is causing the problem but i have no been able to install ANY inf file for this monitor. If i have time later tonight I might call Asus and see if they can do some trouble shooting for why this is happening.

Thanks for that! Looks like I'll be waiting for the next price drop then smile.gif

Oh wow you're right! Well I sure hope prices drop. Some noob has gotta sell it cheap!

In any case, looks like the choice for me is either the xl2411t, or the xl2411t - no way I'm paying £300 for something almost exactly the same headscratch.gif
