Highly Anticipated XL2420G Pushes the Limits of Competitive Play by Pairing G-SYNC Technology With Classic Gaming Modes

COSTA MESA, Calif. -- Nov. 10, 2014 -- BenQ America Corp., an internationally renowned provider of visual display solutions and a gaming monitor pioneer, today announced the availability of its revolutionary XL2420G monitor. Featuring NVIDIA's G-SYNC technology, the newest force in gaming allows players to entirely eliminate performance issues related to image tearing, stuttering, and latency -- providing gamers with the ultimate in smooth, fast-action play. Unlike any other G-SYNC monitor, the XL2420G gives users the freedom to switch between BenQ's proprietary Classic Mode and G-SYNC Mode to create a customizable solution that's made to conquer opponents in any gaming situation.

"Giving players the ability to select between gameplay modes offers customization advantages that are currently unequaled in the marketplace," said Bob Wudeck, Associate Vice President, Strategy and Business Development for BenQ America Corp. "When paired with BenQ's RevolutionEyes technology, the XL2420G provides a hybrid experience which is both blazingly fast and incredibly comfortable. With the launch of this long-awaited innovation, BenQ is proud to be behind one of the most significant advancements in the history of competitive gaming technology."

Equipped with an innovative hybrid engine, BenQ's XL2420G is the new apex of virtual gaming. Featuring a wide 24-inch screen, amazingly fast 1ms GTG response time, and crisp LED display, the advanced monitor allows users to select between two new gaming modes: G-SYNC Mode, which ensures that images appear instantly the moment they are rendered, and BenQ's proprietary Classic Mode for added versatility during gaming settings unsupported by G-SYNC. Users simply switch their input cables to match their gaming requirements -- elevating gameplay to an entirely new level.

To increase visual comfort, the XL2420G features BenQ's RevolutionEyes(TM) technology. Using ZeroFlicker(TM) capabilities, the monitor eliminates traditional LED flicker issues and supports eSports enthusiasts in longer gaming sessions by providing more comfort during competitive action. The RevolutionEyes monitor also features BenQ's Black eQualizer, which enables total gaming visibility by allowing players to adjust brightness without over-exposing white levels, revealing critical combat details with improved visibility in darkened areas. In addition, the monitor brings an ultra-fast 144Hz refresh rate for faster pixel rates to give players complete control over any gaming experience.

For even more gaming comfort, BenQ's latest innovation is equipped with Low Blue Light technology. Designed to manage the exposure of blue spectrum light, the monitor helps to protect players' eyes during extended periods by providing several adjustable low blue light levels that automatically adjust emission without affecting picture quality. For setup flexibility, the monitors are fully height-adjustable and feature an intuitive on-screen user interface and controller, allowing gamers to save and quickly access their gaming preferences.

Now shipping, the XL2420G retails at $649. More information on the full line of BenQ products is available at
