Hello, here I will present my personal thoughts and review the benq exclusive feature, senseye+photo technology, on the v2400w.

First off, I would like to say that BenQ is the underdog when it comes to monitors, but it doesn't fail to disappoint. With a stunning 1920x1200 resolution on a wide 24" diagonal TN panel. The v2400w delivers crisp clean picture with excellent text and picture rendering and great colors right out of the box. As with most TN displays the viewing angles are poor, but the v2400w handles the horizontal fairly well and gives a red tint when viewing at an angle.

Its fast response, clean color and picture, and true to number static contrast ratio make this a viable competitor against samsungs all mighty displays. The main draw that separates this monitor from its competitors is..

The Senseye+Photo Technology:

BenQ's senseye technology helps to deliver deep rich colors with true to life saturation and depth. Out-of-the-box colors are already great for the average user, but when using the senseye feature, you can really see the difference.

In this review, I will only be talking about the dynamic picture mode offered by the senseye technology. I've set brightness to 100 and contrast to 65 as opposed to the stock 90/50. I noticed senseye tends to tint everything blue while stock seems reddish. When i raised the contrast to 65 it combatted the bluish tint and made it to a truer white without making everything else too bright.

Comparisons:

Thanks to the v2400w's senseye demo feature, I was able to take these pictures of a side by side comparison between the use of senseye and with it off. Please excuse the saturations on these pictures, i'm a horrible photographer, actual pictures arent over saturated.


MAN TAKEN FROM VIDEO: as you can see the senseye creates a brighter look as compared to the dullness on the left.


KAI FROM GAZETTE: sand on the right is more defined in color than the left


TF2 GAMEPLAY: Locker is noticeably brighter although gives off a blue tint


TF2 GAMEPLAY: the sky is much more accurately and vividly displayed on the right. Clouds are whiter and the panel is more cleanly rendered.


TF2 CHARACTER: the face is more vivid and his suit becomes richer in color (in game doesnt have this much saturation)


Thoughts:

In short the senseye technology really makes colors stand out more with higher contrast and mores images more vivid and pleasant. When comparing two pictures, the regular picture will almost always seem duller than the senseye rendered one. It really changed my gameplay experience with the newly rendered vivid detail and rich colors.

Bottom Line:

Its a great technology with a few flaws but will give you all the greater experience in your photos/movies/games/multimedia. If you get stuck over various monitors of similar specs, this may just be the push you are looking for.

Disclaimer:

I'm no photographer, this isnt my camera, and this is not a comparison shot thread. This is simply my review of the technology native to the v2400w. The photos are oversaturated and I dont need them to be perfect, i just want to provide a general feel for people who do not know of this technology.
