BenQ XL2430 vs. Asus PG248Q?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Is the BenQ XL2430 vs. Asus PG248Q better?

If you could have either one, which would you choose and why?

Thanks!

I'd go with the Asus because of the 3D, higher dynamic contrast and lower input lag.

i have a XL2410T from a few years ago that i would sell to get a PG248Q but why should i do that?

i dont see how much of a difference it would make and its another 3-500$ that could go towards anything else

Ok thanks, I'm not sure if those specs are accurate on that link that I posted. Are you basing the input lag on what I posted or do you know that the Asus has better input lag?

Based on specs linked.

Comparing these two is silly since the Asus supports Nvidia G-Sync which is why it is one of the most expensive 24" 144hz monitors. The PG248Q's direct competitors are the Acer XB241H and Dell S2417G. The Asus is vastly superior and in a different league while the BenQ has been a mediocre, overpriced and irrelevant monitor for over 2 years compared to other "budget" options without G-Sync like the LG 24GM77 and Viewsonic XG2401 which are both cheaper and have much better image quality than the BenQ.

This is the type of post I needed, I'm going to try out the PG248Q.

I also purchased a PG248Q and will be putting it side by side with my XL2410T in clone mode to compare.

Update... I have the ASUS PG248Q and the BenQ XL2430 hooked up to my comp right now. The colors on the BenQ are definitely better (the whites are white on the BenQ while the whites on the Asus are more grey). Also, the fonts when browsing the internet are better on the BenQ (due to the BenQ having a "Sharpness" option (I don't see the Asus having this)). With that said, I did notice that the game felt a little smoother on the Asus due to G-Sync. My FPS is exactly the same on both monitors (it fluctuates between 100 fps - 109 fps) and I'm not seeing tearing or stutter on either monitor.

I really just don't know where to go from here to be honest when it comes to choosing the right monitor. I wish there weren't so many options or if there was just one clear choice (one monitor stood out as being the best). I just want a good monitor to game on.

Have you compared yet?

hey I got the first PG248Q and it wouldn't overclock past 144hz so I returned it.

the second one arrived and I can confirm what your saying the whites on the asus look greyish

anyway this one can overclock to 180hz but I can see some backlight flicker its random when it does it though.

is this something an RMA will take care of or should I return it to the store instead?

what should I buy to upgrade from my XL2410T if this is not the one??
