  • Smart Scaling

The RL2450HT is designed specifically for RTS gaming. It features an exclusively designed color engine technology called Black eQualizer. It adjusts the screen’s brightness without over-exposing much of the white levels which improves visibility in dark areas. Pretty useful for dark StarCraft II maps or any RTS maps for that matter. It can also accommodate/simulate different screen sizes depending on which monitor size you’re used to game with; you can choose from from 17″ (4:3), 19″ (4:3), 19″W (16:10), 21.5″W (16:9), 22″W (16:10), 23″W (16:9) to 24″W (16:9)

As you can see this one is more loaded on gaming features. I was able to test this one and play Counter-Strike source on it. With a refresh rate of 120hz, this monitor eliminates ghosting thus vastly reducing eye stress. The Black eQualizer, as mentioned earlier, brightens up dark corners and helps avoid getting ambushed. Some might say this is cheating, but in their defense, it’s not your fault if your opponent have a dim monitor.

If you have a powerful graphics card, why not play your games or watch your movies in 3D? The BenQ XL2420T is NVIDIA 3D Vision 2-ready while the bigger brother, XL2420TX is already embedded with 3D IR emitter and comes with 2 Nvidia 3D Glasses.

    Do you know where can I buy the BenQ RL2450HT?

  • My new Nokia E63 takes the small nokia connection (2mm) for cnigrahg. Having had a few nokias in the past (but with the 3.5mm connection) I had a couple of spare chargers and decided this adapter would be ideal.When it arrived I connected it up but the phone did not charge. The old nokia chargers I had at home were only 25ma whereas the new chargers are 150ma.So before you order, check the power on your old chargers.
