BenQ XL2420T Monitor Review

We’re back with another offering from BenQ. This time it’s in the form of the BenQ XL2420T 24-inch LED backlit high-performance gaming monitor. BenQ state that it’s perfect for competitive FPS games and has been co-developed with Counter-Strike legends, so we’re expecting great things from the XL2420T. Let’s take a closer look…

The monitor features a black and red theme throughout and has a relatively slim design that means you’ll have plenty of room on your desk still.

You’ve also got the BenQ logo in the centre of the monitor border.

As with the previous BenQ monitor we reviewed, the RL2240H, there are no labels on the monitor buttons featured on the right-hand side. Whilst this could be confusing, just lightly hovering over the touch sensitive buttons will reveal the popup menu on the display.

Moving around to the left side of the monitor you’ll find two USB 2.0 ports as well as a headphone jack.

The XL2420T features a cable hole in the stand for the various monitor and power cables, as well as a hook at the top of the stand. The cable hole and hook are a bright red gaming colour.
